The Boreal King - Winter Wolf by dloliver The Boreal King - Winter Wolf by dloliver
Primordial spirit of the tundra and forest.
Moon singer, wind walker, winter ghost.
The first and eldest.
Wild lord. Boreal King.


Many moons ago I was obliged to produce a series of sketches of various wild animals for a game we were working on. This must've been, mid to late 1990s. One of them was that of a wolf [link] I was pretty pleased with that one and after looking at it this afternoon I decided to resurrect the image as a digital piece in colour (albeit, not a lot of colour). Quite pleased with the end result overall.
Whatever source material I used in the original sketch I couldn't say. Probably a scan from a magazine at the time.

the fur look so real, like you coul feel it. The effects on the eyes are beautiful too, it makes it look mysterious and powerful. Do you use a tablet?
