This is very, very sweet. I always love to see animals, whether in the wild or in images interacting with each other. It makes people realize that they are indeed emotional beings like ourselves.
Again, I'm excited at how well you blend your colors. The deep, beautiful blues in Waka's fur gives it such a nice touch. The colors of each wolf and the background give the composition this great warm vs cold feeling.
On top of that, your technique is stunning. I especially like how the wings are transparent. I'm curious as to how you make it look so clean! I must be a bum with inks and watercolors
No matter what you say, I still find the scanned picture wonderful. I just can't imagine how the original must look like when you say scanner didn't do a good job. I can't wait to hold it in my hands <3
