Werewolf Portrait: Furian by TeknicolorTiger Werewolf Portrait: Furian by TeknicolorTiger
Second winner of my werewolf portrait raffle from forever ago. This is Furian on FA, who as it turns out has a very fun face to work with and makes for a very handsome werewolf. I chose to experiment with the marker tool in SAI and boy, do I like how this turned out!

He looks so somber... I'm really curious what he's thinking.

He's thinking, "This is the best selfie I've taken so far."

I can't believe there aren't comments yet.  I was fascinated by the eyes and facial expression here.  I've never heard of Furian before, but it makes sense in retrospect this was based on a real person; there's a striking realness about it.

In truth I based the facial expression off the reference I was given. XD It's easier for me to do this with a given reference rather than guessing at how their anatomy might contort for something else. Though that might mostly have to do with their brows and cheeks as obviously, I give them lupine muzzles. I had to guess with that snarly portrait I did for Darius since he didn't provide a reference of him snarling. ANYWAY, Furian is a guy on FurAffinity who entered and won my werewolf portrait raffle several months ago. Also, thank you. I'm very pleased to hear that about the realness. :)

I wish more werewolf art took into consideration what the werewolves look like as people.  I saw a deviation the other day that would have been fine, but looked like the winner of some competition for most generic werewolf clip art ever.  That is, no doubt it was a werewolf, but devoid of any identity or realness; pretty much the opposite of this.

There seems to be this mentality that the human form is secondary to the werewolf even if the monstrous form is derived from the human. Although they are monsters, most artists tend to draw them with humanoid bodies and seem to disregard the fact that each human body that it's based on is unique to the individual. I think part of this is fed by movies because most films don't have the budget to make multiple, unique-looking werewolves and also that wolves, as individuals, are difficult for most humans to tell apart outside of coat color. I think this gives a lot of artists liscense to make cookiecutter, mostly wolf-anatomied werewolves. Moreover, I think it's like I said; the human part doesn't seem to interest a lot of werewolf fans. Humans are dull and boring - we already know about them - but werewolves are interesting because they're powerful and fantasy and are just more fun to draw. I've noticed an overwhelming amount of werewolf artists who struggle with drawing humans or don't draw them at all. Of course, I'm sort of one of those. I don't draw people as much as I should but I'm trying to get better at them! D:

That's probably why I love werewolves but have little attachment to anthro wolves, wolf furries, etc.  They may look alike, but for me the human being inside has to show through.

And dead eyes spoil photo manipulation.
