Winter's Shadow by screwbald Winter's Shadow by screwbald
I painted this piece to be used as promotional artwork for the 2014 Werewolf Calendar! There will be more info on next year's calendar this summer.

This image will be one of a couple free promo-stickers, which will be available at various conventions throughout the year! You can pick them up from contributing artists' tables. :]

I worked on this piece over LiveStream a few days ago. If you're interested in catching a stream, the best place to keep an eye out is @screwbald on Twitter!

This is Acyrlic? the last time i seen Acyrlic was back in Highschool and nowhere this amazing I love how his fur matches the environment it really show's how their fur is designed to blend with various environments,Gray and white for dull,gray environments,white for more like snowy environments,brown and tan for more life filled wooden forest and autumn environements it really is amazing!!!!:D it lets me know more about my character,his fur pattern and environment he corresponds with.:D Also more of his personality and tribe he's be in if he had one.:)

A very majestic and powerful art piece. I saw only a few artists who could sketch and paint in this technique. Your skill is unique!

i think it is like the ying and yang. The raven and or crows is the black and the wolf and snow is the white. Very beautiful.

Oh, this is neat!  So many questions:
Why is the bird on his back?
What is he doing here?
Why is he so intense?
Is the other bird on his side? 
A rival? 
An enemy?

Sorry, sent that too soon.
It's okay if these questions don't have answers, some pictures are better that way. :)

I absolutely love the attention to detail on the muzzle and bridge of the nose. Even more so the lack of outline on the chin and jawline against the tree. It really makes the image pop. Definitely one of my favorite pieces of yours; Seriously, a phenominal piece.

Bravo!

Beautiful. It reminds me of Bran from George R. Martin's Song of Ice and Fire series. AKA The Game of Thrones. Very good detail on the tree bark. Now where is my sweater, I'm cold all of a sudden! :)
