Ugh! I’m not pleased with the results! The coloring, line, and detail. After all the speculating of
, it just looks terrible! I never am good with cartooning and I wish I was… I’ll be sure to tweak more of it when I get the chance.
Anyway…this is my second attempt at another fan art submission. This time, it’s a contest entry from alias, Skailla (
). Coincidentally enough, my first fan art ([link]
) was ALSO a contest entry, except I failed at that attempt, but still finished it and submitted it anyway several months later. This time, it is up just in time before the closing of the contest.
Anyway, this picture is based on a story by the user herself, titled Over the Mountains and Far Away. It takes place in the culture of two separate wolf packs, Gangvar, and Logan. The main protagonist is Wolpy, who’s the yellow wolf in the picture, all petrified, and he’s the Omega of Gangvar(also known to be the bottom of the pack that must take orders from everyone while keeping an eye on the young). What goes on in the picture is mostly the dark side of his character trait. He’s most of the time, goofy, comedic, and unintentionally a trouble maker. So as you may have guessed it, his character carries a runt story. Add to that, something… pretty dark.
The idea behind this picture is a brief character study. Wolpy’s scared of the thoughts about the past enemies he’s made, including his own father. After reading various profiles from Skailla, I was completely shocked at where the story was going. So to answer Skailla on what the theme is, it’s under “Enemies”.
On the upper left is Urtan, the Alpha and father. His backstory is closely related to Wolpy. While he was married to one wolf, he hung around with another, named Raven, who’s Wolpy’s real mother. All alone as a Cub, Urtan finds Wolpy, and takes him back to his pack, and in revenge with Raven, Wolpy’s ranked an Omega to this day.
Sensenite, upper center, is a Beta. He mostly pushes Wolpy around, and hates him beyond belief. It’s very vague to explain, but he gets angry with Wolpy all the time.
The Red wolf on the upper right is Racher. She’s on the Logan pack. Her job was to guard a dead Caribou Wolpy and another wolf stole from after a severe incident Wolpy tried undoing. Through an unlucky mishap, a log bridge across a waterfall collapsed beneath Racher, thus getting angry at Wolpy and the other wolf (named Treavor, BTW). At the end of the chapter, Wolpy feels regretful about her, thus she lands in the picture.
I overall love Wolpy. He’s charming, and hysterical, but he’s also serious at the same time. A couple of things he has are some things I can somewhat relate to. He’s Omega having to take orders from everyone while I’m the youngest member in my family and have to take care of nearly everyone’s chores. Particularly, I have a quote from him in my signature, that’s how much I admired this character. Though thinking back at it now, his character’s darker than I expected.
