SHITE! ....this is amazing man! looks like it could be a final fantasy summon , amazing design and the composition is crazy good. The painting details are really well done, especially in the clouds, do you have a link to a hires version?

Amazing concept and execution. I particularly like the electrical currents running between tufts of fur.

The connection between a rodent/wolf and storms is lost on me though...

I agree, its looks amazing!:applause:
Great composition and the lines themselves gives the image a nice flow.
It makes your eye travel with it, creating a sense of movement.

i usually watch the 2d threads, but rarely reply.

I believe in a kind of enery images give if done in the right way (clolors, composition, etc).

and this displays some realy strong energy, you can feel the power of the character....
the way its rising above the clouds, giving off strong ligthing bolts

sweet work.

Excellent work. It's a shame to see such a desaturated sky and clouds, but it really helps to create a more powerful picture. The fierceness of the creature was truly captured as well, I really like this piece. All done in painter too, you sir inspire me.

very nice:)

he remind me somehow of the wolf in 'An American Werewolf in London'..his jaw and teeths mostly.

I like the lightning in his fur as well..give an impression of divinity in the beast

Cool image, good mood'n all that.

Kinda too fantasy:ish to my preference,, but hey! I like Picasso, so my preferences toward art are that more of an "artsy" style.

I like the currents running in the fur as well,, actually the first thing that caught my eye.

The clouds are very solid good work!

Could you post some work in progress images? How do you start to draw a picture like this?

Very, very nice......It's good to see some western talent in the 2d forum for a change, there are soo000o many great artists popping up form Eastern Europe and the Far East, it almost felt like we were getting left behind, but you've put my mind at rest....Thanks :)

Th demon reminds me of a giant wolf-like creature, and maybe a little bit of Inuyasha's father. I love the lightning bolts you painted into the fur, that was very innovative. I'm envious:) Also, is Raiju part of Japanese mytholgy? It gives me that impression in the style you painted him, not to say your style is exclusivley Japanese, but the info & art seems to be of that origin. Beautiful work, I love it.
