#2 of the 100theme challenge: Love.
Background inspiration: [link]
Theme #1: [link]
Kanadra(blue) and Solaara(Orange).
I'm not really sure what to say about this...
I was originally going to enter it into the companions contest, but it finished before i could finish this. xD
Um... there are somethings i probably could have done better... I don't mind if you point them out and critique me. I like knowing what i can improve.
C&C welcome, of course. Enjoy!

D'awww, they're so cute... I love love LOVE the background. Very pretty and definitely fits the love theme. And Solaara's paw looks great now! Perfect.
And good luck on the challenge! :D

I am totally in love with your background.
Also the one ear that the blue wolf is showing is just.. so amazing. I don't know why, I love the way you shaded it.
Sorry I can't give you any help on anatomy cause I barely draw animals.

Dude, I love the fur texture on here. Your lineless is so awesome and those paws are so neat looking...I fail at doing the pads...
Kanadra reminds me of the Nubi (or whatever their called) from the movie Avatar that just came out. (Haven't seen it yet...:( ) I think its his blue color. Anyway, love, love, LOVE this pic. It is epic in a beautiful, peaceful way.

I agree with Kanjo. For some reason, that one ear just looks... awesome. :P
Lineless is a fabulous talent, and you've got it down pat.
I love it. So sweet and tender. :3

gah, i totally forgot to credit you in my comment.
CREDIT FOR SOLAARA'S DESIGN GOES TO MINDFREAK0305 :3
Thank you all for your lovely comments!
-Sadowwolf- : so far i'm enjoying the challange, even though i'm only on #2. It's definitely a cure for art block. :D Good luck when you decide to do it!
Flareofamythest: Thank you very much! I'm glad the paws look better... I still wasn't COMPLETELY satisfied with them, which is why the grass kind of covers them up... But yay!
kanjo: haha. Thank you. Now that you've mentioned it though, i think i should have payed some more detail to Solaara's ear. There are a few things i forgot to do, i think. :P
Goldenpride: thank you very much! I haven't seen the movie yet, or even many trailers for it, but i'll take your word. ;) I do want to see the move sometime, though. I suppose it is sort of peaceful, isnt it? Thank you!
Eclectic_hate: Thanks! Lineless is almost automatic for me now, and i dont know why... I'm glad i'm successful with it!
mindfreak0305: Thank you for adopting Solaara to me! If it weren't for her, this picture wouldn't be half as cute. xD
Love to all of you for the fabulous comments.

HI KANDRA!!!!!!!!! :D :D :D i MISSED YOU! I was the one gone but yea....I rember these two!!!!! I love them!

Love the colors on this one. The little hearts on the trees are very cute!
Critiquewise, I love the anatomy on the blue wolf. Its well done. I think that the gold wolf, particularly in the face, could benefit from some reference to get the canine face structure a little bit more spot on.
This image is being featured as the oekaki menu button for a few weeks :-)

Congratulations on the oekaki button feature! X3
It's totally deserving.
eclectic_hate [Profile] 2009/12/20 - 5:36:39
Congratzulmalations on the button!
I never even noticed that thing before... lol. I'm so stupid sometimes.
kanadra [Profile] 2009/12/20 - 19:9:18
Hi denece :D
Neon: Thank you so much! I'm really flattered. :D About solaara's face, i agree that it could be a bit better... I was having so much trouble with her in general that i think i just sort of gave up. But thanks for the critique, the comments, and the feature!
Prysm: Thanks very much :D
Eclectic_hate: Thank you. xD I so rarely use the front page that i hardly notice it either.

mmm contrasty. very eyecatching.
something 'more' could be done with the horizon-line maybe, like some sort of pattern rising out of the ground, but I think that's just a personal preference of mine.
