.: Eagle : Wolf :. by ravenwing136 .: Eagle : Wolf :. by ravenwing136
Hey, a new category! I don't think I've ever drawn animals before.
Anyway, no real reason why I drew these, a photograph of an eagle in a Chinese photography magazine caught my eye and after drawing that, a photo of a wolf looked pretty cool too :) I like drawing animals with fur, since fur is just lots of hair after all :giggle: feathers on the other hand, are rather weird, like some cross scales-and-fur thing evolution decided to rock up :D but still pretty cool. Hopefully I'll be drawing a fox soon, and maybe even a tiger or a bear. it's supposedly research anyways :D

I will post something in colour soon... ^_^

;p being loyal to the original just takes practice and patience with detail; the best parts are taking 'artistic liberty'! :XD:

i prefer feathers, even for drawing. maybe because i have an emotional attachment to them

This is awesome! I mean, I like your art work, your normal manga characters and everything but this is on another level entirely! And colour? Screw colour! I really like this deviation and your other black and white one.

Absolutely beautiful. The contrast, the contrast! And the detail, and ...yeah. I love it, even though I don't really like animals.

And there's part of me going 'Wolf's Rain! :w00t:

grey is good. you know it :XD:

Thank you! :D Aw how can you not like animals? they are awesome, especially mammals :) Furry!

You know, the funny thing is that I didn't even think about Wolf's Rain until I finished. ^^; it was hopefully inspiration for the shapeshifting story. :P Well, it was cool, but i wasn't that inspired ^^;

you wish. exposure, saturation and gamma correction are the BEST :XD:

falarae Featured By Owner Nov 24, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
You're welcome ^^

They have tonnes of parasites.

Shape-shifting? You haven't told me about that one yet...

Gamma correction. Haven't used that one before, maybe I should try...

ravenwing136 Featured By Owner Nov 25, 2010  Student General Artist
Well, it's not like humans are completely devoid of bacteria and parasites =p

It's kinda weird, I only have a few scattered images and scenes, a name/character, but I don't know whether I want to set it in asian-steampunk or medieval asian world. it's the one where they use animal skins to take the shape of the animal (legend of the selkie spinoff ^^;). there are various ideas for plot, depending on whether I include animal gods (taking a leaf out of Princess Mononoke here =p) and whether I want happy or tragic. and of course who the characters are... although I haven't really thought about that yet, only the animals ^^; I also have no clue how and why they meet and travel together. uhh........ help? ^^;

Gamma correction is awesome, it's like contrast and saturation together so you don't have to twiddle two sliders.

Yes, but there's a difference between my parasites, which contribute to my immune defence, and other, alienforeign parasites =P

ooh, interesting, interesting...perhaps the 'how and why they meet and travel together' may be more apparent once you've worked out what the characters are like? (although in my case, it's knowing what the characters are like that prevents me from coming up with a plausible device to get them all in one spot...) What are your plot ideas like?

Teehee, mutualism here... :XD: although for you it's probably commensalism ;p

Yeah, but the thing is i've thought about their animal forms more than their actual human nature ^^; I've got a girl-fox, boy-wolf, boy-bear, girl-bird and minor character girl-mice. more animal than human :XD: For plot, basing it off an old legend, how animals, after meditating for 100 years, achieved enlightenment and became helpless but sentient humans, but some can still return to their 'original' state (needs thought) by wearing the skin and thus, bodies of animals. one possible plot involves finding the dragon and pheonix skins (medieval asian path), save or damn the world with them. If i wanted to be really macabre, they could even use human skins. (instant MA15+ rating :|) not sure if this is a forgotten skill amongst the people, if it is there would be people who accidentally put on an animal pelt and find themselves trapped in animal shape. depends on the society, magic and belief system i choose, really :D how does that sound?

Yeah, thought I should broaden my horizons somewhat :D I've expanded my repertoire to include guys, perspective (a little) and now even some animals! :D it's fun as :dance:

Eagles do kinda look like that, cept that maybe they are brown, and i'm not too good with feathers so i probably didn't do it justice =p

haha, yes I will! :D
