Commission - Old Wounds by jocarra Commission - Old Wounds by jocarra
Commission for Whitewolfhowlling, who requested a painting of his fursona in a duster standing in front of his truck, his arms dripping blood. While it can be tempting to go with a fun, dramatic pose, I asked him if it was alright for me to take a little artistic liberty with it - I felt like there was a possible story I could tell, or at least, hint at, if I tried something a little more experimental. I like how it turned out - thanks again, Whitewolf! Once again, truck highly referenced x_x Also, he wanted his fursona to somewhat resemble him in real life - hopefully I did his hair okay! ^^;

~10 hours Adobe Photoshop

This is amazing! Very nice work. It kind of reminds me of the movie Skyfall...

I think I see a second leg in back, but at first I thought he was missing one, which would make working the clutch and gas/brakes difficult.

Haha, man, can't imagine trying to drive manual with only one leg x_x

... okay, I guess if you have fancy paddles for shifting it'd be okay, but I'll bet this old truck doesn't have those :b

...I've never heard of paddle shifters on a truck. Talk about overkill. ;p

Where'd the blood come from? 0.o

Who knows? That's what I originally thought when the client suggested the picture idea to me - whose blood? Why is it running down his arms? But rather than go for the "standing dramatically with blood running down arms" pose, I went for something a little more introspective, thought it might be interesting. Maybe he tried to commit suicide and is waiting to die? Maybe he had to kill someone, but didn't want to? Maybe he's not bleeding at all, and it's an old bloodstain he never washed off the truck for sentimental reasons?

Many thoughts are happening here then... Many different scenarios, and many different solutions... Very well thought out. It leaves the viewers guessing. ;) Your client was very smart when asking for the blood.

*nods* I wanted it to feel like there could be a story that goes along with it, but a variety of different possible stories, leaving it open to interpretation but still sort of coming off with the same, kind of sad atmosphere.

That was a fantastic idea. I had a thought of his background, but I decided against it because it wouldn't have made sense.

Heh, thanks a lot! And yeah, for the truck, Google images was my friend XD Just browsed through a bunch of "trucks for sale"-type photos until I found ones that were at the sort of angle I was looking for :b

So dark, yet so gorgeous <3 I like how you posed this, so cool and casual :nod:
I could definitely believe there was a story behind this, so you portrayed that well :rose:
