Beak Animal Wreath by Shadow-Wolf Beak Animal Wreath by Shadow-Wolf
Glamorous title, eh? So I did a little bit of personal art, dabbling in watercolors again after my long addiction to acrylics. I didn't really plan this out, I just sorta doodled Wolf Nymph's head on some bristol, painted it, then added the wreathish thing later. I actually wanted it to look like a leafy moon. This beaky dog version of her is fun to draw! Like a half-gryphon of some kind.

Title inspired in part by the german word for platypus, which translates to "beak animal", info courtasy of :iconthornwolf:
It's a little humurous to me. ^^

[edit] darkened it up a little, without regard to how white the background is (lazy!)

Yay! I remembers this! But did you change it or was I just not looking close enough, cause he looks a bit more perturbed than I remember......maybe I just didn't notice his ears back like they were. :shrug:

Very elegant. :D

The bit about the platypus reminds me of the German for bat-eared fox - as a direct translation it's "spoon dog". :)

Oh, I love the way you have the beak upper jaw, while having the canine underjaw. :D That's how I designed my Caniph, Albi's, face, but I've never seen anyone else do it with their characters. <3 It looks really good on Wolf Nymph!

Love the crescent moon, too :D The leaves are so pretty, and I love how they sort of break away and almost desolve-like at the tips.
