The Encounter by Lhuin The Encounter by Lhuin

Finally finished this one, it's been in the works since... 2011? Something about it didn't keep me interested in it until now, when I rediscovered it a few days ago and wanted to work on it again. And I guess I'm happy I had a little break with it, was enjoying painting it again with some new, fresh ideas for it.

Something a bit more realistic again for a change, I think this is the kind of work I will focus on now and the style I want to practise after drawing lots of 2D stuff, I enjoy drawing 2D-work as well but from now on those will mainly go to my tumblr, will still be posting some pieces here but for more check here: lhuin.tumblr.com
But will mainly post my realistic and/or more painterly work on DA.

Drawn entirely in Photoshop, with the first black/white and then colour-technique. Interesting way of colouring but I think it suits this one. And I do like drawing backlight :D

Wanted to do something very "wildlife" but still make it a bit mystical by trying to portray the feeling of encountering a wild animal in the nature. Hasn't happened to me, at least not many times, but I hope I succeeded in it.

Also available as a print :)

This has to be one of my favorites. The simple colors mixed with the realistic wolf and beauty is perfect.

This is a magnificent drawing, the eyes feel like they're piercing through me, the stare--- brings shivers down my spine every second I stare back. The stance--- shows no fear- unable to predict the wolf's future movements. And the background, makes me feel like I'm in a fairytale-- Little Red Riding Hood perhaps?

Also, I wouldn't be so sure on this but I would believe this wolf would be part of the British Colombian Wolf breed-- but as I repeat from before, I'm not too sure. For there is many other black wolves out there that belong to different breeds and-- this wolf could belong to any of them.

But back to the picture, this is very beautiful and should be seen worldwide by those who loves art- and or loves wolves.

The lighting and shading are brilliant, and I love how the outline of the wolf in so bright, suggestion light coming from somewhere behind it, and the background looks awesome! :#1: The wolf's eyes are so beautiful, and they glow without being neon yellow. And the fur of the wolf is really realistic. :clap: Beautiful painting!
