The heart of black wolves, Yuriy Mazurkin (2D)


Title: The heart of black wolves
Name: Yuriy Mazurkin
Country: Russia
Software: Painter, Photoshop

At first it was a sketch of a female from life. I painted it in Painter X. Then I got the idea of the big picture. Therefore I looked through a lot of pictures and videos of animals (including bears) to depict the wolves. I finished work in Photoshop CS3. I used a lot of transparent layers for scumbling.


Well done!

Simply amazing, it would make a perfect oil painting, this should get an award.


This is a excellent peice. Great composition and wonderfully painted.

One of the best I have seen hear in a while. Has a oil painting feel and depth to it.

Front page work!!


awesome I love the classical mood that the piece has, It could use some more brighter spots here and there, but it looks awesome the way it is…



Maybe some stronger “God” rays as Merhan has said. But that would be it.


2Kazziu: Thanks a lot! Glad that you like it!

2Mehran: Thanks for your comment!

2BldRnr: Thank you very much for your kind words, Alan!


Great piece! I love the fact that the Lady’s characteristics more like the classic modell type. On the other hand beautiful lighting, palette and overal detail rendering - as the others mentioned before - indeed. However I like that this being not too theatrical at all. Cool job!

Keep it up! :thumbsup:
