The Oblivion by Exileden The Oblivion by Exileden
Welcome to the forgotten lands of unawareness.

Firstly, I am not happy of the scan. It's quite not accurate, really, and the angle is a little out of place due to that I had to scan several pieces since that artwork is bigger and had irregular shape. It may feel out of place, I apologize.
After my long fight with scanner and restoring my image's look in PS I've learned that I should get a professional scanner at some point in the future.


Finished acrylic painting of a classic Werewolf which I posted WIP a while ago, here:
[link]
This was my first full acrylic illustration in fantasy theme. By doing this piece I've learned many and many stuff which I never knew before, as well controlling my hand.
I was inspired by many brilliant werewolf artists and I can tell this piece is kind of a tribute to many inspiring artists who drew wonderful werewolves, also including most participants from Werewolf Callendar: Dark Natasha, Balaa, Kyoht, GoldenWolf, ShadowWolf, Myenia, Khaosdog, Kesame and many others (will write more later).
Thank you for being a great inspiration, granting wonderful own interpretation of werewolves (if they wouldn't be there, how ugly werewolves we would be watching...? Hollywood also can't also picture a good, I mean, proper look of a werewolf).
I'm still learning about were's. Personally I visualize them more scruffy and massive quadruple ones- I do hope someday I'll find my own, unique interpretation of weres.


The original painting is still available for sale. Note or email me if you're interested.

A lovely piece. I especially like how the werewolf fades into the background a bit. The eyes are gripping and the color scheme works wonderfully.

You mentioned your difficulty in scanning it. Have you considered photographing your artwork instead? With larger works and those with tricky color palettes I've always had more success photographing them versus trying to scan them.

I must say that I love this painting and if the scan didn't quite come out right then I wish I could see the actual painting but unfortunately it would be WAY out of my budget to attempt to purchase.
I sit here and try to think of words to say but none come, either way it is certainly one of the best werewolves I've ever seen, quiet possibly the best.

For some reason I am stuck on how amazing that hind leg is. You got the angle of the fur PERFECT for the position it's in...

Gorgeous work! I thought it was colored pencil until I saw the description. The fur texture turned out so well.

My favorite little detail is the line of fur that starts between the eyes! :clap:

Nice work!! :) When it comes to werewolves, there isn't a really "proper" look, but rather it depends on your own interpretation. For instance, some people visualize wolf-men as more anthropoid in form, loping on their hind legs and moving something like a human. Other artists prefer to make them more like wolves. And, it depends on whether you imagine the werewolf as being a human who can transform into a wolf at will, or someone who is cursed to become as a beast is during the full moon.

This is absolutely stunning! The detail you put into the fur pattern and direction just stands out beautifully. A great touch is also how you put the subtle hints of blue in the background, it truly adds depth to this piece. I absolutely love it! You must be proud <3 :3

( Also I understand there's been drama for this lovely piece and I just want to say people are being ridiculous. Your art looks completely different and the only similarity between the poses is the fact that they're prowling towards the viewer and that's it. I also dislike how users don't understand how rude they're being by mentioning "oh this reminds me of this one piece!" They need to understand that is incredibly rude. Artists do not create a piece in order to have everyone point out how it's unoriginal. I for one find this very original and truly breathtaking! )

Exileden has already had to go through drAma regarding that :P
The pose may be similar but the style and everything else is completely different. It's just a really common 'stalking' pose.

I said REMINDS, but I can see how that could get misread. My Apologies, for both the misunderstanding, and for not communicating clearly enough.

I'm curious what did you want achieve by telling me this?

For me when people post comments like that, is quite confusing and often can be taken offensive. I don't know if that's a compliment or offensive comment, or anything. Many artists by hearing comments such like that " this reminds me of (insert example)" find it more as offensive (as well other people) because by lacking any further information this mostly lead people to take that kind of comments of being unoriginal or accusing something (i.e. copying) etc.

I meant no offense.

I will admit, I was wrong in my first, initial, knee-jerk reaction, but now I have been set right by others, by Goldenwolfen, and by yourself.

I apologise.
