Kiba by heylorlass Kiba by heylorlass
Finished it
I'm quite proud of it :D Although the shading has a lot to be desired.. wonky light source..

It reminds me of okami... just the paper

He seems angsty. I'd imagine him to be saying "Back OFF"
I'm a HUGE wolf's rain fan- I just LOVE the anime.. for the fact it has wolves- and that its so beautifully done. The story itself isn't as good- but the animation for me makes up for it.

He kinda reflects my current mood- I can't beLIEVE my camera broke... :P
I've sent it away to be fixed- but its likely to cost way over £100... eugh

New colouring technique- seems to work for me :D

Thankyou very much
Well, I drew my original lineart on watercolour paper. Thats what gave it that texture. I gave it a sepia tint fiddling around with the adjustments/brightness/contrast on paint shop pro. Then I randomly blotched out areas using a big dodge brush, being careful not to bleach the lineart too much. Then it looked like this [link]

So after that I just coloured the whole thing using a dodge brush. The bits I wanted in shaddow I didn't lighten

Hope thats clear :)

I love his black lips^^ I too always draw big black lips to dogs and wolves. I love Wolf's Rain ( though I haven't seen the last episodes because I am too lazy ) and I have always liked the wolves in it. They are so realistic ( compared to other animes such as Ginga NAgareboshi Gin ) but I hate it's humans. They are so ugly compared to wolves.

Yeah, I know. The wolves are so realistic
I also love the people, but I'd far rather draw the wolves rather than them :D
Thanks :D

I was browsing and recognized this picture as Kiba. I bought and watched the entire Wolf's Rain series about a year ago and I'm still a fan.
Nice job on your picture.

Yay! Awesome!

Im really glad you coloured this in. Not that the drawing on its own wasnt very pretty but with colour its even more so. The fur especially works. All the highlighting makes him seem genuinely fluffy, which is nice:)

I also like the background. Which I awlways do, I know, but for some reason that Ye Olde paper thing seems especially appropriate, maybe because its the sort of thing you imagine asian regions in the old days drawing on...or maybe its just me! Anyway, it gives the overall picture a pretty glow:)

My one comment is the mouth. He seems to be smiling, which might be to do with the upper lip. On the other hand, perhaps hes happy to eat people ^_^

Nice picture!
