Shadow layers are worked in, am now trying to figure out the mid tones for the light source.
Its especially difficult with orphan because given her black fur she isn't very reflective.
Despite my stylistic approach to working out her fur shes not really fur less around her lower body.
Its just a more short body fur where the length naturally is longer where it would naturally be on a human.
And because of that I will usually not render her with an intense body sheen, like I might with a more human or reptile type creature.
It's something I've been continuously adapting and evolving as things move forward. I tend to shy away from doing the more shaggier style u might see from an artist like Wereworld. I think mainly because I've always been chasing that more anime styled aesthetic. But my work continues to evolve with every drawing. I would like to experiment with some werewolves later too who transform via alternative means, like having the order all off perhaps starting with the muzzle, or skin rippage.
I designed the world so as not to completely cut off the potential of any 1 major creature concept from being out of the question. I love unique monsters and want them all to have a place to play. ^ o^
