You really nailed the suit. It almost looks too realistic :typerhappy:

That is so dang cool :XD:

So, I gotta say, the two things that really stand out to me here are the paws and the suit. I'm gonna go easy on the suit because I see others have already commented on it (and deservedly so!) BUT I WILL SAY THAT THE FABRIC OF THAT TIE. DAAAAANG, SON. THAT IS A SLICK TIE IT'S HIGHLIGHTED FLAWLESSLY LIKE SATIN (...could be silk, but I only know satin, oops? :|) WITH ONE PERFECT CREASE AT THE KNOT AND ALL THE LIGHT SHIFTS FROM THE WAY IT HAS TO FOLD TO CONFORM TO SITTING HOWDAREYOUBESOPERFECT.

NOW PAWS. Paws are rough--every bit as much as hands on people can be. In addition to the whole "digits" problem, they've also got a really funky fur pattern that's easy to get sloppy on--but you didn't, and it really shows.

Wow! Thank you! I had never done an anthro that combined very refined human traits with animal ones like this before. So it's been great getting feedback (especially positive feedback ;p) on this. I'm glad you like it! I thought a really shiny/smooth texture for the tie would balance the slightly rougher texture of the pinstriped suit.

The design for the hand-paws was something I struggled with and talked to Nicolae about since neither of us were exactly sure how they should look. More human with fur or just paws like a wolf? We went with a nice in-between of longer "finger" digits but keeping the structure of a paw instead of a hand. Thank you for noticing and commenting on them. :D

:D The textures balanced really well--it looks really sharp.

It came out really well, I think! You can definitely tell there's a humanization (the digits were definitely longer), but they're definitely still paws!

Glad my insightful commentary could help! ;p

I am absolutely floored by the detail you put into this.  The longer I look at it, the more I see all the little details, like the folds and creases in the suit and the shine on the leather chair.

This made me think of the guy from the Dos Equis ad/meme :P for some reason. The suit looks amazing, how do you even get the stripes right? Loved the paws, somehow I didn't immediately notice them. Makes me wonder what the feet are like :P

Lol! You're not the first to mention that. I love the comparison. The Most Interesting Man in the World is so cool that could probably just turn into a wolf-man whenever he wanted. ;p

Thanks! I had only done pinstripes once before (on the painting I did of Gary Oldman as Sirius Black) and I remembered them being really difficult then. It was a little bit easier this time having done them once before but getting the placement right was still tough, especially among the folds at the joints.

I hadn't thought of the feet. Wonder if he's wearing shoes?

Right, Sirius. I wasn't sure when you had done it before but I was sure you had. And it looks impeccable. The one time I did a similar thing was a  texture in Noob Saibot's pants and it was a nightmare, the stripes would never be the right size, or follow the shapes the way it should, or looked any decent at all :P

Haha. I hadn't thought of that. I don't think this guy would let anyone get away with anything. Everyone would be too afraid to step out of line anyway if their boss could maul them at any time. :XD:

Haha. I hadn't thought of that before you said it but I like the comparison. "I don't always wear fur. But when I do, it's because I'm a wolf-man." ;p

Thank you! :D

Love what you've done with the suit, how did you texture the fabric? :)

ThreshTheSky Featured By Owner May 20, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Thanks! I actually didn't use a texture brush this time around. I painted and blended the colors like usual and then used dodge/burn to add the slight grain to it in a similar fashion to how I make my backgrounds.

Nice! It looks slightly textured ( like what I manage to do with black, but black is easy to texture by itself <3).

Yes, I completely agree! They all need a big shiny chair! And one of those that can turn around and make it all dramatic when someone enters their office ;P

One comment I received from a watcher, seemed to wrap it up in one word... "WoW!!"  I wholeheartedly agree.  It took my breath when I laid eyes on the finished piece for the first time, and I cannot thank you enough for this marvelous work.
