Still slowly, slowly picking away at my lengthy commission list.. this was one of the left over Japan relief ones, for :iconf-0-x-y:
I shall now be very specific about how I created this -
I used one of Tambako the Jaguar's photos, which I have permission to use, and is here, in his amazing gallery:

The wolf itself I completely re-painted myself, from the ground up, though as is my perfectionist obsessive tendency... it didn't end up deviating much from the photo. Oh well. Better luck next time?
The background is a combination of painting some random blobs over the original photo and a photoshop filter or two.
I'm being so specifically weird as to how I created this because it has ended up straddling the "paintover" and "digital painting" categories...it does lean much more heavily into "digital painting", but I didn't want anyone to think I was trying to pull the wool over their eyes, or something. :}

This actually quite feels like a literal picture, specially with the blurriness at some parts, and the bright colors. Must probably take you a while to detail the fur like that.

Awww, I felt bad I'd taken so long...tried to dump a little more time into it than I should have, to make up for it... not sure if it ended up how I'd envisioned, though. o.o
Thank you for being so patient!

Gosh, I thought it was a rendered photograph or something! Amazing, I don't have enough words to tell how much I like it... That colourful glitters on the fur look really good...
