So here is a story: Back in 08, i kept all my awesome drawings, including more kh character concepts, in a folder. This folder thought it would be a good idea to get misplaced. Low and behold, a couple months ago i found this folder. This character was one of the characters i created back then. He was designed with two things in minds, i all too frequently design characters with a waist heavy silhouette, and i am frequently disappointed with werewolf characters. So i made this guy top heavy as far as a design, and oh yeah, he is werewolf.

So guys, sorry ive been hiding, been taking a while to recharge my art batteries and come up with some new ideas. Hope you like what ive got.

Lo and behold*

Great art, though I think the lower part of the body looks a little feminine.

Aw man. What I wouldn't do to find that freakin' long lost character design folder.. I have one too - from back when I was like 13! We've moved so many times since then, though, I bet it's long gone. :C

Anyway, they both look really sweet. Glad to see you up and postin' to DA again! :+fav:

Did you ref. your face for this one? lol
There are a couple features that I'm noticing that look like yours.

well,uhhh no offence.... His hair is creepy and he looks kinda awkward with the arms(I'm not so good when it comes to explaining).
xD It needs so more realizm,like ur other pics,and yeah I know that's one of your older pictures,When I ment Upgrades I ment like uhh....make it more realistic! :D

Im all about curves, the entire human body is one curve after another. Yeah i wanted a pretty monotone color scheme, to bleed together like fur. Though i wanted a light chest piece to bring our the good in his heart so to speak. Thanks for all the encouraging words.

I'm liking the scarring on his face. Vurrniceeeee. The only thing bugging me is his right hand (left on the picture)...the two fingers bent with the others bone straight looks awkward and unnatural, and the perspective almost makes it looks like the thumb is on the opposite side.

Nice painting, though! Love the eyes.

Yeah that hand wasnt really thought out, i based this off a sketch from my sketchbook, so the hand wasnt drawn in. Kinda tossed that hand in last minute. Thanks,im digging the eyes myself, sometimes simplicity is key.

Something about the shadowing beneath the eyes (not directly beneath, the slant like shadowing connecting to the nose bridge) bugs me. It seems too light in contrast, and its almost like his face bubbles up there and then sinks into heavy shadows directly beneath his eyelids. But other than that, fantastic job, as expected ;)

Nice. I'm seeing an overall rise in quality in terms of your 'brushstrokes'. It looks a lot tighter then your previous stuff. Keep it up.

You might want to fade the background version of him though. His back arm is too close in color to the faded, enlarged version of him and it makes it hard to see his silhouette clearly.

Very noice, I approve~

Love the scars over his eye... You actually managed to make the all important face scar cool and creative again.
The cumberband (or whatever it's called in armor leather form xP) is also very nicely done~

I saw mention of The Scarlet Pimpernel too in your comments... Pff, glad to see that silly film made for good inspiration xD

And the pants do not scare me, so AWRIGHT~ Victory screech!

Yeah im still not to sure what passes for good art over on NG. Tends to be a bunch of masturbatory NG related art. Plus you have dicks like minchamber over there. I guess im just a deviant art heart. Oh yeah, thanks a lot :)

Very cool man, loving the touches on the armour. Only reservation I would have is I'm not sure the big puffy sleeves work with the ensemble. Having said that, I can't design characters for love nor money, so maybe I should just keep my big mouth shut. :meow:

Yeah i was watching the Scarlet Pimpernel in class, and i was so bored felt it was a good idea to design a character. Thus the puffy sleeves and the tight pants ;p
