This piece was the result of an art trade I had with Kissifur of Norrath's Studio. But what she wanted was actually a messageboard avatar, so the main result is a tiny, shrunken portion of this. Well I had the high-res version, and would hate to see it go to waste, so I sent her this portrait of her character also. The 3D wolf was atrocious, so I repainted it completely, eyes, nose, every tiny little hair on its fur... *faints* It was nice as a challenge though, I had never even drawn a wolf before, much less painted one. =)
