I’ve been sketching this thing for like 2 weeks now, and I didn’t like anything I sketched enough to color block it in. Maybe it’s the pressure of the approaching deadline, but I think I’m finally ready to paint in gouache. I’m giving myself 10 hours.. uhh.. yah. We’ll see. For the Animystics show at Light Grey Art Lab! :D Everyone picks a spirit animal (based on myth, made-up, anything goes) and writes a background story about it. Special abilities, powers, etc.
My animal is a wolf-tengu, inspired by my own dog, Hana. I wanted to do especially well on this show because part (or all) of the proceeds from the sales will go towards an animal shelter!! (I picked a no kill dog-rescue in the area) Totally in-line with all that I love. Right after my own heart!
(The finished piece will probably look different from this, as it’s just a quick color block.)
