Solitude by cerona Solitude by cerona

Just a quick and random sketch I did for my storyboarding class. It's supposed to be a study of the wolf's anatomy, fur, shape and whatnot, but yeah, I know it's not brilliant. There are several things completely out of place that are the wrong shape and size, but please don't point these out! :D

Obviously it's been touched up in Photoshop a bit, like adding the clouds and grass and stuff. I just thought it would bring the otherwise dull sketch more to life :nod: And yes, I know the fur doesn't look wet even though it's obviously raining, but maybe it just started, or maybe he just came out of somewhere dry.

It was fun to finally get to sit down and draw something though, even if it was just something simple. I miss drawing like this. I'm too used to digital nowadays, that I've completely forgotten how nice it is to just sit down with a sketchbook and draw for a while. Maybe I'll do some more sometime :D
