Pierce The Skies by Shadow-Wolf Pierce The Skies by Shadow-Wolf
By-the-hour commission for Utunu of FA of his African Wild Dog character! This one presented more of a challenge than I anticipated. I spent more time on it than I thought I would. However, I had a BLAST working in those spotty markings, getting them to look like the coat of an African Hunting Dog, and compliment his body shape as well. Super fun one!

12 hours 45 minutes in Photoshop with an Intuos 3 tablet

Really nice, proportions are done well. A very tricky pose to accomplish. Good work.

I think it's the detail on the fur and the pose itself that gives this piece such sense of motion!
A truly excellent piece of work,you've made me jealous!
Definitely putting you on the Watch!
