False King by CanisAlbus False King by CanisAlbus
This one is a really old piece, dating back to December 2011.
Grigori, a borzoi character of mine, made his first appearance in full color here.

I wasn't going to upload this at first, since I wasn't really pleased how it turned out (there's still lots of mistakes and errors that I'd like to fix if I could), but in due time I've grown to like it a bit more.

Black Stadtler pigment liner, Faber-Castell colored pencils, watercolor, gouache.

Character, artwork ©GhoulShoe


I also want t apologize my recent inactivity when it comes to submitting new things and replying comments and notes. School hasn't been doing so well lately, and I haven't been feeling like myself. Just very tired and depressed.
There's also few gift arts that some lovely people have made for me, and I've noticed them but they're yet to be commented. I just want to let you know that I appreciate them endlessly but the comments may still delay a bit. Sorry :<

Grigori vaikuttaa tässä kyllä erityisen ärhäkältä! Mikähän herran on suututtanut. 8O Ihana, tietyllä tapaa tumma mutta kuitenkin vaalea värimaailma. Ja lumisade on hienosti onnistunut!

D'aww, so nice to hear that! He's one of my favorites as well~
Oh yes, school is just horrible sometimes. And in this time of year everybody seems to have so little motivation to do anything at all...
But thank you for your kind words :hug:

I really know what mean about school and lack of energy I'm going through the same thing.

The piece is really good for what it is. I can't tell were you made your mistakes., and it is still a lot better than any thing I could ever do.

Haha, well, I was worried their designs were a bit too similar... but for the record, Grigori is much taller, skinnier and meaner, his colors are darker than Woody's and he's got white spots on his face, neck and forequarters~

Beautiful piece. I'm very glad that you uploaded this.
I do hope you feel better - I know that school can do that to you. Don't worry about replying to comments and whatnot - we just hope you feel better and are grateful for your contribution to the dA community :)

I've seen a lot of works done with gouache, and I've loved all of them. But I haven't tried it myself yet.
