I heard an explosion of some sort that was followed by the roar of that thing. Something struck me in the shoulder, hit me so hard I lost my balance and fell to the ground. I couldn’t stop myself from glancing back to see what had happened. What I saw made me sick to my stomach.

That thing had burst out of my car and was peeling more of it open as it tried to squeeze its massive form out of the hole it had made in my car. I could see Aaron’s hand hanging limp. I could see some of the mess that thing made of my car. Blood was pouring out of the car and onto the grass. Who knew he had so much blood in him?

And it stared at me...

Commission for WhiteFireTyger, done as an illustration for a short story of his (which I should have a link for shortly, should anyone be interested in reading it). Thoroughly enjoyed making this one! Just sad I didn't get it done in time for Halloween ;P

~10-15 hours Adobe Photoshop CS5.

It was loading when I came to this tab, then suddenly it popped up. Holy cats, I've never come this close to messing myself apart from actually messing myself. Very well done!!

No problemo. Say, I'm working on some werewolf lit, and I was thinking of putting it up on DA. Thing is, I think illustrations would help its popularity, and apart from the occasional photomanip, I stink in the visual arts realm. Would you consider a collab?

Unfortunately, I'm not really able to do collabs right now, as much as I love werewolves! Sort of working on a tight budget, so paid work has to come first, I'm afraid! Thanks for the offer, though :)

Normally, I'm not into werewolves being portrayed as savage, mindless hunters of blood, but in this case, I'll make an exception (and no, I am not into Twilight). This is flat-out bad-ass and beyond epic. Not only does it look like a screenshot from a horror movie, but the way the action is conveyed makes it seem like whoever views this will become salty human tartare for the werewolf. Adding a ripped-up car (is that a Porsche or Camaro, by the way?) just adds to the overall horror feel, as it clearly depicts the immense strength any werewolf has. Finally, the blood spatter, which does not gross me out (due to personal experiences), is very realistic, especially the hand print on the windshield. Again, great job on this one; you never cease to amaze.

Thank you so much for the wonderful comment, it's greatly appreciated! *nods* Personally, I can go either way - sometimes, a big savage beast is what I'm after, while other times, you want something that seems deep and soulful, or tragic and hurt, or whathaveyou. As for the car, I'm not really sure, I think I just Google-imaged some photos of sporty-looking cars and tried to emulate that :b Heh, and yeah, the fact that he's literally ripping his way out of a car makes his power seem all the more intimidating - it was based on a story by the client, so I really wanted to capture that sense of "savage power in action". Also reminds me of the song, Varulven (Werewolf) by Garmarna, based on an old folk tale, in which a werewolf literally rips an oak tree up by the roots to get at the victim hiding in its branches o_o (Always sorta wanted to try illustrating that XD)

Anyway, thanks again! I hope your personal experience with blood spatter isn't too unfortunate ;P

Thank you very much! I never really would have considered this image as depicting beauty, which is actually sort of surprising - I think there's a lot of raw, "dark" beauty in things like feral rage and expression...

Anyway! Yes, thank you :)

My opinion is that the beauty of a perfect predator (lion, wolf or say, werewolf) is not lost just because it is hunting, killing or growling! A cheetah running to catch and kill a prey is equally beautiful!

It's true :) It's odd - a lot of people consider the sciences and the fine arts to be diametrically opposed, but I think that's a shame. There is a shocking amount of beauty in the world that perhaps people don't see because it is simply in a form other than sunsets, fashion models or picture-perfect celebrities - it's easy to forget and to miss out on all the elegant, beautiful things in the world.

Thanks a lot for reminding me of such things!

Amazing painting; the bits of car that are flying towards you really highlights
the sense of action and movement

Considering people have enough trouble claiming something was an act
of God, going for act of werewolf-- they'll get laughed out of the
office... or arrested for insurance fraud! :D

You're very welcome! I think the bits of flying car really add to the
image- you would lose illusion he has just torn through the car, if
there weren't bits of bodywork flying every which way.

Hey, could be one of those things that's crazy enough to be true!

... I wish :b (Why do I wish being mauled by a werewolf were plausible? I don't know :b)

Hehe, yeah, I wanted the picture to have this really energetic action/violence to it. The flying shrapnel just seemed like a logical decision :b

"It was a werewolf, I tells ya! It might have been a guy in a wolf suit--
no, no, definitely a werewolf! I'm not crazy!!"

Maybe you want getting mauled by a werewolf to be plausible, because that,
logically, will mean all those beasties exist. But perhaps you should forgo
the whole mauling part-- werewolves aren't exactly known for leaving survivors ;)
