The Lone Coyote by jocarra The Lone Coyote by jocarra
An illustration for Fox Amoore's song, The Lone Coyote, done as part of a trade: one illustration for him per song for me.

Listen to the song: [link]

I was a little hung up on the background, but forced myself through it. I worked partly from a photo taken during my trip to Drumheller. Despite some remaining issues with the background and legs, I'm pretty happy with it :3

Edit: Slight repaint of the paws, and editted the shadow a bit.

8-9 hours Adobe Photoshop CS3.

Wow this is just an amazing and beautiful piece, I absolutely love how you designed this up and the background you used, that moon glowing on the mountain side there is just so beautiful and stunning. I just can't help but just be in awe how amazing you drew this, you did an amazing job =)

This is magnificent! The rocks look so realistic, and I love the purple haze misting around the stars. The coyote is is so pretty, and the shadow looks so accurate. I really like how thoroughly made this is! :D

This has to be one of the most beautiful works of art I have seen in a very long time. I love nature and nighttime pics, so I instantly adored this piece. It's is sooooo beautiful. The detail on the coyote is pretty good and the shades of blue and purple in the sky are absolutely brilliant. Love it! =]

Okay, so, my jaw seriously dropped when I saw this work of art. And despite the whole paw thing, I wouldn't worry too much over it. If I hadn't've read the previous comments, I doubt I would've noticed it. Personally, I don't think it takes away from the image at all. You did an amazing job; keep it up.

Thank you so much, I appreciate it!

And yeah, paws seem to be hit or miss with me X3 Sometimes I'm really pleased with them, and sometimes they turn out lacking - sometimes they do just fine without me looking for photo references, and other times I just can't do them without it o_O

That being said, despite whatever trouble they give me in drawing them, I still love paws ;P
