Here we are ~

I'm a bit disappointed, I wanted something more realistic, more "oil painting" but it seems that I have to improve myself x)

As I told to a friend, what motivates me to draw this painting is that I saw lot of digital painting, so realistic and beautiful, done by professionals or those who draw for games concepts. I was like "Huuuh, I'll never be able to do that !" Then, when I show these painting to another professional artist,  he told me they actually just made photomanipulation, drawing over some parts and so on. I was like ...  bummed and pissed off, because I felt betrayed, just because none of them said (I mean nevah) they used photo.  
Drawing Lucifer, I try to take a kind of revenge; showing that I can do what they draw without "cheating".


So, I can swear that there is no photomanipulation. However,  I take a lot of ref,  that was quite difficult to know exactly how things, shadows and light look like. 

By the way, I think that the next time I would do something like that, I'll use photomanipulation, because I have to try it ! But I'll tell you, of course :3


I used a lot of effect, sharpness and then blur, playing with colors and textures... 

I think there are so many mistakes, I don't like how the boy's hair contrast (to much) with the rest of the picture; I don't understand why the wolf's arm seems to come out like that (actually, with the pale wing at the background, it gives more visual depth.. heh)
The list of what I do not like is too long haha...

I decided to hide the wolf's face, because (as I explain it to another friend) :

"What if you don't like his face ?  I created  these characters expecting their appearance and staging would influence you to get who they are and make you imagine them in the way you want them to be. It's the same for their faces. The Wolf is the sexy guy of the story. He must represent it for all of my watchers, and I'm afraid to influence them with a concrete picture."



Huuh, I'm done ! I'll maybe fix some details, when I will be able to do it well x)

I really hope you like this version, I know how many of you LOVE the black and white version; by the way I was so surprised that the b&w version was seen as much, Omg that was crazy ! I wasn't even sure to submit it !! I was like "Oh my god, what happen to my watchers ??!" XD

Anyway, thank you so much for your support and all of your kind messages ! You are more and more to tell me I'm improving, and surprising you at every new deviation I submit. Moreover, lot of you seem to get the feeling I can put in my pictures, and it touches me very, very much.  You make me so happy ! <3 

Flame version: sta.sh/018mtk58wg22
(I did it quickly because, at first, I wanted to draw it, the Wolf burning feathers, but I forgot and I'm too lazy to do it well right now >.<) 



 :: EDIT ::

I just fixed some mistakes, better colors, less contrast... and the halo of the boy ! 
I like it better this way ~


Thanks for all your kind comments, I'll reply really soon ! <3

I love religious themed art, don`t know exactly why (probably because of the supernatural effects of it, wings, halos, horns and tails and the opposition of the good and bad so "black in white")
This is gorgeous, I don`t exactly know how to describe.
There is so much depth in this piece.
You are an amazing artist.
I saw the description, in fact there are many photo manipulations that are not assumed, but I`m glad your piece is authentic oil painting.
I`m also in love with the black and white version.
It`s so perfect as this one, in their own different styles.
You sure know how to draw the man`s bodys *blushing*
I think I will watch you, even if I`m not fan of Yaoi.
I like some Yaoi pairings, but it`s not something I go look searching around, you see?
And you deserve my watch

Well.. I'm still trying to lift my jaw from the floor. It's definately the best digital art painting I've ever seen. There are a lot of talented artists, but You're the only one that impressed me that much. Even if I'm not really keen on yaoi. Your style is perfect. I can't wait to see more arts like this from you. <3

Just thought I'd mention that a lot of concept artists use photobash techniques (photomanipulation combined with painting) because that allows them to work faster and create more. Look at illustrator's work if you want pure painting. I really like this painting though.

Hey ! Je suis française, je sais pas si tu lis bien le français... :x

Enfin, bref ! 
Je trouve que cette oeuvre est hyper bien réussi. J'en reviens pas, je suis amoureuse de l'image :')
Je ne vois pas comment tu peux t'améliorer, parce que c'est déjà très très très réaliste.
Les couleurs, les formes, les mouvements... C'est magnifique, et très émotif. Je pourrais restée devant pendant des heures 
Bravo à toi, je pense que ça n'a pas du être facile de faire cette magnifique image **

Merci beaucoup ! C'est super gentil de t'arrêter pour me dire tout ça; c'est motivant ! :la:
"Je ne vois pas comment tu peux t'améliorer" Celle la me va droit au coeur >///< 
Mais malheureusement, il y a toujours à faire ! Même si ça ne serait pas pour avoir un "meilleur rendu" mais finalement une...plus grande maitrise de la technique je dirais ! Si je n'en refais pas c'est parce que c'est vraiment long et compliqué xD Mais j'aimerai beaucoup recommencer; il me faut juste l'idée que vaille la peine d'y consacrer autant de temps !

Meci beaucoup pour ton message !! :hug:

This is one of the best religious-looking paintings I've ever seen. It evokes so much emotion in me. It just has this powerful force that pulls you in.
But every time I look at it I see this halo and think: I would love to see this picture without it. ^^° My eyes just focus on it every single time. I think it would look just as powerful and religious if you left that halo out. And then I saw the link to the "Flame Version" and now I'm happy! <3

Ahhhhhhhhhhh je l'adore celle là. C'est ENORME. J'étais partie pour te faire un fan art, mais on va attendre 3 ou 4 années que j’atteigne un meilleur niveau XD
Bon je t'avoue que je préfère le loup sur la version en noir et blanc. Sur l'autre, le mouvement de son bras est plus...dynamique ? Je ne sais pas trop. 
Mais sinon j'adore. 

Par rapport à ce que tu dis, c'est vrai que tu aurait pu rajouter un peu de lumières sur les cheveux du boy, pour éviter cet effet de contraste ( même je trouve ça parfait comme ça ). 
Pour ce qui est du visage du loup. Je n'aime pas trop le morceau qui dépasse ( désolée T^T ). Sa bouche..Peut etre trop féminine..
Mais pour ton inquiétude par rapport à notre vision de ce "sexy guy", eh, si tes followers commentent et continuent de te suivre c'est parce qu'ils aimes ton style, tes dessins. Donc fait le comme ça ( z-pico.deviantart.com/art/Mons… ) et comme ça ( z-pico.deviantart.com/art/The-… ) et tout ira très bien. Je veux dire : il me semble évident que quoique tu décide de faire, quelque soit la manière dont tu dessine son visage, c'est le role qu'il a et le reste ( ton style de dessin global - qui a déjà fait ses preuves - ) qui fera qu'on l'aimera !


Ah et j'ai une question : le webcomic tu compte le poster sur DA ou tu as une plateforme spéciale en tête ?
