Nice vocabulary! Most people on here don't use or know what the word exquisite means/is.

I absolutely love this piece! The way you illustrated the fur is so delicate and amazing. It's similar to realism with how the pattern of the fur is by how you used the black to explain both shadow/dimension and color.

I hope that makes sense... anyway, great work on this one! ovo

Woah. Simple, but eye-catching work. Just love play of black fur.
I also like his pose, design, and especially paws. You're doing them so correctly!

Oho, en oo kyllä kuullut tota sanaa ikinä käytettävän, mut no, suomen kieli on muutenkin varmaan täynnä sanoja joita en oo ikinä kuullu XDD

Upea työ, as usally <33 Kauniit yksityiskohdat~

Riippuu ehkä siitä, mistä päin Suomea on kotoisin? Kaikki isovanhempani ovat Kuhmosta ja olen siellä suurimman osan elämääni asunut, ehkä näitä vänäläisiä lainasanoja kuulee enemmän itärajan tuntumassa?

Näin muuten tuon tekemäsi Macheten ;v; Anteeksi, en ole jaksanut/ehtinyt kommentoida vielä, mutta komea on!

Stunning work, love the way the warm colourscheme seems to contrast with the wolf's curled posture and the title, and the way you've drawn the waves in the fur is just gorgeous, it gives a realistic impression of the volume of the fur whilst still maintaining this beautiful style. <3
The eyes are interesting indeed, it's subtle but somehow enhances the piece and adds more interest. ^^
Overall a gorgeous work! :love: :heart: :clap:

u used gimp for this artwork?
i could never come close to this on sai but GIMP
that's physically impossible for me

It is amazing, isn't it? :love: :heart:

Still, I don't know why everyone seems to hate GIMP so much and thinks it sucks. Personally I hate SAI and after trying it went back, and I've only ever used GIMP before and since.
Now, my art is NOWHERE NEAR as good as this (I sorta suck to be honest), but GIMP isn't that bad... :'D At least I don't find it to be so.

I just use GIMP, and pretty much only use the standard paintbrush tool too without using textures like this *aside from very occasionally using them*, I think more people should give GIMP a chance... :XD: I don't use fancy brushes either - so GIMP can do more than I actually use out of it.

That said, I haven't gotten even within a few thousand lightyears of as good as CanisAlbus, and I never will - but that's not because of the program's limitations holding me back, it's just my own personal lack of skill or talent. :'D  Can't blame GIMP for that.
(also, damn, I use blue far too often... gotta try to use other colours more...)

Sorry for randomly butting into this conversation, feel free to ignore me, delete this comment, or reach for the giant fly-swatter. (I just rather like GIMP and I hear people bashing it all the time...)

Haha, that's actually quite a short message by my standards. :XD: (the thumbnails make it look longer too...)

Ah, it just sort of gave that impression from your earlier comment - apologies if I picked up on it incorrectly. ^^;
And haha, as for Sai, you're welcome to it! :laughing: I found it very awkward to use, personally...

no thats fine

don't feel like ur a bad commenter or anything i've seen WAAAY worse. I don't mind other ppls opinions and i agree to (almost) everyone's opinion 

(when i say almost i mean like ppl who are against gays and like fetishes without mature content stuff like that)

Ah, glad you understand there. ^^

Hmm, I did feel a bit bad about jumping on your comment like that afterwards, my brain had kind of fallen out this morning after virtually no sleep and when I woke up a bit more later I sort of regretted that. :'D No offense was meant though at the time, I think it was more just that earlier when I saw this, my brain kinda went "oh look, another person slating GIMP again and claiming it's awful or impossible to use..." and I went on commenting autopilot. ^^;

And I understand there - other opinions are fine so long as they aren't condoning/promoting abuse or hatred, I think...
