Reflection by moyan Reflection by moyan
"Wash daily from nose tip to tail tip; drink deeply, but never too deep;
And remember the night is for hunting and forget not the day is for sleep."


The Law for the Wolves by Rudyard Kipling.

to see more traditional drawings of wolves in this series of artwork inspired by kipling's poem, please visit the folder in my gallery: "The Law for the Wolves"

done by 0.5mm 3B mechanical pencil and caran dache water soluble color pencil.
the joy of color and monochrome all in one. :)

This is very, very well done. One thing that I really like is that, wolves are colourblind, so that's the reflection it would actually be seeing of itself--colourless. :) (Aside from the eyes, :P)

I really enjoy your Law for the Wolves works, really exceptional. The line-work shows a lot of patience and care. I love how you've included the background in the reflection, it helps to draw the eye deeper into the picture. The color/monochrome dynamic is a great idea too. It almost makes it seem like a reflection of day/night, especially as you have added the yellow highlights in the eyes.

Really great contrast between the colors (I love how you've used greens and blues in the shaded part) and pencil.

Amazing detail. The reflection is done so perfectly! I love how the entire reflection is in black-and-white, except for the eyes (it makes it feel like the reflection is alive).

Excellent pencil work! The way you worked the strokes to make it look like the wolf's fur was artistic and talented, and the mirror image in the water must've taken a lot of work. It's a sign of a great artists and patience; lovely drawing!

This was a clever idea. Your colored pencil works seem to have random colors added, giving them an iridescent look, and contrasting here with the B&W part.
