True Identity... by Emryswolf True Identity... by Emryswolf
I love this pose. The inking worked well, as I was considered using pencil to shade. But I wanted very dramatic lighting and that would have been too excessive for pencil, as it is also hard for me to achieve very dark solid blacks with pencil strokes.

This expresses the long-fought denial and final realization of the inner beast we all hold within our cages of human flesh. Though the acceptance is not always easy...

This is amazing! I'm loving how the guy's still trying to hold on to his humanity, hinted at by the fact he's crying. Also, DEM TORN CLOTHES :D

I like how give this werewolf with emotion
Silvermoonlight Featured By Owner Nov 23, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I really love this image, just for the painful depth of emotion in it, you feel so sorry for this werewolf as he looks self aware and in pain but at the same time this image is about him accepting that fate and coming to terms with what he is and that gives it such deep impact.

The shading looks great, and I like the detail. The tattered cloths look good. I also love the tears coming from his eyes. Its a great addition to this piece.

Just because the flesh can be false, and hide the beast within, does not change the fact that we know WHO we are; Not for what we become.

What do you mean by "the long-fought denial and final realization of the inner beast we all hold within our cages of human flesh" ?
Not trying to critisise was just wondering what you meant by that...
Human is always evil in the end or something like that?

There you have a few of my thoughts...
No need to feel obligated to answer =)

The detail for the hair and eyes is really well done! And the cross-hatch effect to shade really is a nice touch!
