Postcard 4: Air-Wolf
This picture was inspired by a friend commenting on the previous postcard, about a creature who could defeat such a mighty fortress. A fire-breathing chimera of wolf and bat – an Air-Wolf! Of course, I groaned, and decided I had been set the task of bringing this awful pun to life.
I used a much broader pallette than on my previous postcards, going outside the usual black, white & theme colour process, but still only using five colours. It took a lot of patience to get all the lighting right, considering numerous angles and aspects.
As well as the intense lighting, I corrected a number of anatomical issues, especially around the monster’s chest & shoulders. Note the lighting around the mouth: in pencil work, the more detail an area has, the darker it is, simply because more lead is required to shape the features. One of the tricky parts of painting is balancing the bright and silhouetted areas. Painting fire isn’t easy, y’all.

A beautiful print - I love the artwork, with its high detail and striking use of lighting, and it looks perfect in my home. Now I just need to find space for more of Keira's work! Many thanks!
Was well packaged, and look very good.
