Queen Rahbia by JessKristen Queen Rahbia by JessKristen
My friend REALLY wanted me to call this painting "Rahbia, Queen of the Earth" so even thought my WIP is called 'Moro', in reference to Princess Mononoke, I'm going to call the final version Queen Rahbia to appease my friend :)

Can I just say though, I'm SOOOOOOO freakin' happy with this picture!!!! its by far what I consider to be one of my best works yet. I impressed the hell out of myself with the fur... which took FOREVER! well... probably 10-12 hours in total, but i dragged by feet and procrastinated through the body b/c I opted to draw in all the furs with a round brush... i got really bored about half way through and didnt want to finish LOL but i'm happy i did!

I hope you like this as much as I do. I love blue, winter, and wolves... and my friend loves the name Rahbia. LOL ;)

Here's the photo I used as my reference: [link]

This piece of artwork is outstanding. The background is really well made and the wolf just looks amazing. The colors go well together giving it a nice calm soothing feeling that the first snowflake is about to fall. Plus the shadowing of the objects is like perfect. If I had to rate this piece or artwork on a 1 through 5 star scale i would give it 5 full gold stars. The only thing I would recommend doing is maybe have the wolf stand out a little more. But other than that, this is one of the best painting of a wolf I have ever seen.
What do you think?
