Draco Lupus by AlectorFencer Draco Lupus by AlectorFencer
Autumn is coming and the time starts to wrap myself into warm piles of pillows and drink black tea which Honey after having a walk outside, watching the leaves falling down and looking at the wonderful warm colours of the trees. Next to summer, the autumn is one of my most favourite seasons.
This picture was more or less random. I didnít really have a clear concept for it, just the creature in my head and what the fur structure will be. The pose and the background happened spontaneous in the end. Lol
I wanted to see what a mixture of dragon and wolf would look like in relationship with the autumn. Result was this drawing. It looks kinda, as if the dragon jumps out of the forest or above the treetops and takes the leaves with. But it should be a part of the body to bind this kind of dragon with autumn.
The fact that it jumps to the left gives a feeling of freedom and the movement of the fur shows a slight wind blowing towards it.
I really enjoyed working on this picture because I havenít drawn patterns and versatile little details for ages.
Does it seem that I currently work on a dragon series and didnít tell this to anyone? Hmm, I think I noticed it for myself after I finished this picture. :XD:
BTW, I tried to draw the second paw but it looked really dumb in all positions, believe me. Thatís why it has just one paw in this picture. I hope you like it anyway.
Have fun looking. ^^

Graphite on Bristol. The detail took me most time but I canít remember how long.

I am guessing you take Latin, since many of your drawings have Latin-related names? Nice work by the way, and maybe sometimes you could draw a winged wolf?

Very, very nice stuff. I just love all the tiny hairy, swirls and all the details of the mane, as well as the "facial" expression of the dragonwolf...really scary and absolutely authentic. If there would be a real creature, a mix out of Dragon and Wolf, I could really imagine that it would look like that.

Again, I'm impressed...but obviously, I'm not a painter at all and have no advanced commentary to offer. Just my personal opinion.

Hah, this is the picture that first attracted me to your gallery! It even looked awesome in the thumbnail!

Lovely work! After a moment of staring it popped into my head the image of this creepy bush chasing someone in the forest, nearing their prey and pouncing while transforming into this guy! But his expression isn't so vicious as to say that there isn't a chance he was just pouncing to lick them and say 'heya, buddy!'

Gorgeous detail, especially the uh...tummy mane turning into those swirly foresty delicious twirls and leaves! Wonderful art!

Fantastic work once again. :D Pretty much like most of your drawings, this one is amazing. :) Your imagination is just so vast and impressive. . .

Love the way you always work so hard on details, especailly in pics like this one - Maybe the claws are a little too thin and straight like I said over MSN, and it's a little weird how the hair blows over the leaves, but it's very awesome. :) Like the pose and concept of this thing too. . . Would hate to get a bite off of one of these things. . . hehe. ;)

It's still a big thing for me to draw paws and hands. As in real life, people pay a lot of attention to on what the character stands on and with what the character handles. Which means the better hands and paws look like, the more quality a picture has. It's weird. By this, the anatomy plays a decisive role in a picture. ;)

I didn't think much about the hair. Main point was the movement of it and that it curls that way that it floods into the plants and curls. The wind is quite important too here and it seems that some leaves get blown into another way. But this makes everything more interesting. ;)
Thankie for the sweet comment and constructive critic. :love:

sorry for the late reply first. :XD:
I'm glad you like the detail in this picture. I sat longer than three hours on the part with the hair and the plants. lol But once startet, it makes a lot of fun. I'm sure you know that feeling. ;)
You should have seen it with the other paw. I tried to draw it in different positions but it looked too weird.
I still would like to know why. :XD:
