Wolf Hug - revised by merrypaws Wolf Hug - revised by merrypaws
Not long ago, I noticed that one of my older pics was is still pretty popular. Not that I'm complaining, even if I wonder how people keep finding it, but the quality of the art kind of makes me cringe nowdays.

So, as a challenge to myself, I redid the whole shebang, just to prove myself I've improved. Still not perfect by any strech, and I'm just as horribly out of practise with color pencils as the first time 'round, but you know... better.

Not bad. Although the female looks more like a coyote.

There's a very good reason for that.
She is.

It's pretty good Merry - but maybe what really impresses people is the sentiment. As for the pencils, they're just fine. Fur textures are hard to do in most mediums, and the attempt to make fur takes many forms. You're showing fur without doubt, and that's good too. Is all that spikiness necessary? Maybe not. But it doesn't hurt.

probably because so many folks have it faved, and it pops up as people check out other galleries. Possibly also based on the keywords you have on it, it probably comes up in various searches. The old one is cute, but I agree, there is definite improvement.
Both are adorable.

You worked hard on that fur didn't you? I like it, even though it does look a bit stiff and spiky.

Still so cute. :3
I'm terrible with colored pencils! I like them, but I really need to learn to use them more effectively.

Also, hahahahaa.... everyone I hug is a good head taller than I am, too. :P
