Dawn of the Hunter by Lhuin Dawn of the Hunter by Lhuin
Or hunters...!

I was looking at my gallery the other day... I noticed I've been drawing a lot of blue/purple/greenish pictures so I really wanted to draw something bright red. Saw a nice picture of a very red sunset, and I also wanted to paint some african wild dogs. No idea why I haven't really drawn them before! They got such amazing markings.

I was drawing this on a stream a while ago and had a little break with it, but today I felt like painting again and got it done. Been working on it all day, I guess I was just in the mood to paint something bigger again. Quite proud of myself for finishing it and finishing a bigger, more realistic picture again. XD And helped me take my mind off of some things that have been keeping me busy lately (in other words, sorry I've been a bit inactive and taking forever to reply to stuff! will catch up soon), was nice just listening to some fitting music and painting and painting.

Not sure why but I always enjoy painting desert scenery. And my favourite OST to go with that is the Prince of Persia soundtrack, has helped me draw a lot of other desert-related work : D
Such as these:

Anyway hope you like it! ^^
Took me forever to decide if it's finished or not, if I see something I really want to edit might go back to it but otherwise I think I'll call it done haha.

Painted in Photoshop CS3, WIP stuff to follow soon on my tumblr
