Portrait by Yellow-eyes Portrait by Yellow-eyes
For the lack of a more original title O_=

So...Who is that? Is it Zakka? Have her markings changed? The answers are yes and no. Her marking haven't changed, just my way of drawing them. i realized that all my "realistic" fur actually looked cartoonish, so I decided to draw a real portrait, with markings that didn't look unnatural.
One of my goals is to be able to draw very realistic pics, so that people could say "isn't that a photo???". OMG, I've got so much to learn before I can do that...But I'm still quite proud of this picture.

I guess any artist has got things he finds most difficult to draw. I've got quite many: ears, eyes and fluff. So this was a good practice, especially of drawing fluff. Hope you like it :)


This was done completely in Adobe Photoshop and took a few hours.

A "WALKTROUGH" the pic, showing how I did it, can be found here:

Knew it! one of my mates sent me a digital painting of a wolf, saying how amazing it was and how he can't belevive how some people can be so tallented. I had never seen this painting of your's, but could tell it was by you right away, just the way you've done fur in the past.
amazing work... really like the way you worked with the ears. The eyes kind of seem like they're facing directly aheads even as the muzzle turns, but thats not a big problem at all. (Though the bg may be just a bit over-blurred if you're aming for "Thats not a photo?!" (imo^^;))

Thanks :) I'm just to lazy to do detailed bgs lol. But well, in this photo the bg is also quite blurred [link]

Anyway, I think the real problem is that the fur itself could be better...

YOU ARE MY GOD! XD <3

The colouring and the mass of detail is so stunning that my brain cannot comprehend the awesome. The blurryblurry background works so well, and the sheer realism deserves to shrine to itself, yesyes. The only critique I can offer is that the angle of the nose is a tiny bit off, but it's barely noticible. SO IT'S ALL GOOD :heart:
