The expression on the wolf's face is terrific! It's exactly like my dog's when he howls. Great job!

I really love this picture! The colors are simply beautiful. And I love how subtle the trees are. Took me a second glance to even notice them. Very nicely done. :]

The detail of it is great! And the color blending works out too. And it looks awesome in it's own way, so that's another reason of awesome.

I like your pics...indeed, i'd like to learn how to draw like that, guess that i'll just have to practice more...but if it isn't too much trouble, would you give me some advice?

Thanks!! Ciao!

the process of coloring the howling wolf is similar to this one:

This is beautiful. I love the sweeping arc of the composition. There is strong visual flow starting from the bottom right corner that travels up and around and comes out the wolf's mouth like the howl.

such perfection. I only wish the colours were a bit more toned down to have a more gothic look
