Singular Purpose by Shadow-Wolf Singular Purpose by Shadow-Wolf
Finished digital vignette (no background) commission for Max Coyote! This is FateCoyote, an assassin fox/coyote mix. Her blade is a Wakizashi, so it's shorter than a Katana.

The pose that was desired was something close to this picture of Taki from Soul Caliber. I changed it up and refined the pose with several stock photos as anatomy reference for different parts (legs, arm, hand, etc), and got this!

Title suggested by Kaltag! <3

The dynamic in this pose is much more apparent then in the reference picture. I mean, the girl in the reference looks stiff and wildly out of proportion. This fox/coyote girl is anatomically well-done, and seems to be coming right off the page. :D

Why thank you very much! I tried to make it different enough and use more photographic reference of anatomy to make her look more real. =)

The details you put into your work, I'm always in awe of them! I mean, just look at that tail! and the toes, individual bone and tendon detail, it's just fantastic!!!

The dynamic pose, the swish to the hair, and the perspective in those posed hands, I could spend hours picking out bits and pieces that I love, but they all add up to make something wonderful :heart:

There isn't a thing I don't like about this picture. From the pose, to the anatomy, and the fur detail, it's just awesomeness in a warrior fox! I applaud you! :clap:

great caught action. i dont like human hair on animals on animals, but i think thats not your fault but the caracters ;)
and i think these shoes (are they shoes?) are quite strange. kind of look like the fur was shaved away.
but all in all nice picture :)

This is significantly better than the refernence you used. Seriously, the pose here is more graceful (and no bizarre oversized breasts), and I like how you did the rippling in her hair. Plus she has a cool get up too, and I dont mean in a sexy way either; its just plain cool.

Brilliant work with pose indeed. I also like how you drew fur only in nessesary places, leaving the rest smooth, and the picture still looks finished.

Thank you! In the high res there is a little bit more fur texture (muchy finer less chunky) for the benefit of the client, since the texture is fun to look at. XD

For me even lowres version looks perfect. Great balance between textured and untextured parts. I think about trying something similar with my models. Sculpting an evenly spaced coat of fur in Zbrush is much a waste of time.
