My piece for the upcoming 2014 Werewolf Calendar! You can pre-order it starting September 1st at: www.werewolfcalendar.com
The first 150 orders get free stickers! The stickers are pretty amazing this year. :)

My caption this year was as follows:
On a few documented occasions, werewolves have been spotted co-existing near or with a wild wolf pack. Little is known about the circumstances leading to such co-habitations between the otherwise rival species but it is postulated that in times of sparse prey, lone werewolves will follow a pack of wolves and help them bring down larger game. The wolves, recognizing the werewolf as non-hostile advantage will allow the werewolf to partake in hunts and even allow them to feed alongside the pack in successful kills. Not all such symbiotic relationships end peacefully however and many wolves remain leery around the werewolf, sometimes leading to fights.

Special thanks to :iconvantid: and :icondarknatasha: for their help with anatomy!
I also used stock as reference/inspiration when working on a few areas that I had trouble with. Special thanks to :iconyanomiestock: for these two images, which helped me with some poses: yanomiestock.deviantart.com/ar… yanomiestock.deviantart.com/ar…

This was painted with the oil pastel and acrylic brushes in Corel Painter X.

Your use of perspective is astounding. More artists need to work on the dynamic poses and angles.

The entire scene -- staging and lighting -- is lovely and evocative, but the way you painted the snow in the foreground is especially stunning. It looks so real.

That's some piece of art! You really put some effort in this, I guess. I like the sunrays shining warmly through the top of the pile of snow. The wolves, the scenery and atmosphere are great as well, of course! But that little glow through the snow makes it special, I really like that!
