    2. -gasp- I have that program! It's really awesome, isn't it? But I prefer to use Paint Tool Sai, I just like the format of Sai better. But Sketchbook is great, too :D

    2. Your drawing is beautiful and so detailed!I don't think you should fix a thing, your a natural born artist!I can't draw that, and I love art, I do it all the time.And Snowyclaw you are a master artist!Don't deny it, no one will deny it.

    3. True true. Hey snowy, another thing, stop denying you're famous! That'd really help my demented mind! You're epic. You led us to bring back Shamans, two or more of us jamaasians think you should/are a Shaman and you're blog has nearly 72 thousand views. I... like I mentioned early, can't draw but... I. May. Have. Another?. Gift. Writing. Well. Meh. Mother. Said. That. And a lot. Of. My. Friends. Can. I. Stop. Making. Every word. A. Sentence. Now?. Anyways...

    4. Snowy's paintings ARE world-famous. I'm from California, others are from Germany, Asia, Europe, Australia, South America, Egypt, and I'm pretty sure one is in Canada! Well, I'm not technically sure about the Egypt part. XP

    1. You don't wanna see my art when I was four! Did you guys know my little sister can draw wolves better than me? and she drew a perfect one, not like snowy's exactly, in just one try. (awkward silence follows because of freakin' course you didn't know) Yeah I guess you don't know. The best thing I can do is... fred.

  12. It's really nice. You guys know what I loved in the post about it? Snowy ISN'T "Old Frozenspirit" She/he is Snowyclaw. Snowy wants to draw her/his animal. So, for me, doing that as a blogger (well especially on AJ) is pretty epic.

    @Madison Frank
    You are so right! OMZ!

  13. Snowyclaw when i saw your picture i was so amazed. I love how it's foggy and little fire flies are around Old frozenspirit I thought that was a cute touch to the drawing. What I really love is all the nature like background and all the detail to the fur that is really pretty. it almost looks like Old frozenspirit isn't a warrior. I think it looks like Old is just a peaceful and happy little wolf who loves the forest :)

    1. In my mind Old Frozenspirit is a peaceful wandering storyteller, but when the safety of Jamaa is threatened rises to protect the land as a phantom warrior. ^.^

  23. Firstly I will tell you that this is AMAZING! The coloring is stunning, the coloring has a very whimsical feel to it, and the detail is comparable to artists much older and more famous than yourself.

    If I really had to point out flaws, the only thing I would say is that the legs need a more realistic perspective, as the back legs are a bit strange. But that is it, otherwise it's great!

    Overall, this is a wonderful piece, and I do hope you'll do more like it!

    1. Thank you so much! Yes the legs are kind of messed up, I've always had trouble with limbs and feet. >.< I'm practicing though!

  25. Ok, I've been studying art for years now, so here we go.
    Warning: I don't sugar coat things.

    The technique you used is pretty good, the coarse fur texture is great for a beginner, so kudos to that.
    The background and colour choice is great too.

    The anatomy is very off, though. What I did when I started out was find real pictures of animals and traced them to get a feel of their body. Don't trace them then use it as art though, that's a no-no.

    Just basic things to work on would be building up the neck fluff, the legs and paws, the face, paws, etc. It's ok though, wolves are tricky.

    The prongs on a deer's antlers don't all come from one main trunk, just like a branch, though most do. I'd look at pictures of antlers to understand what i mean: http://deer-stag-hart.information-and-facts.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/07/big-stag-winter.jpg

    The tail is too long and shaped oddly. Look at fig. 2: http://the-wolfs.webs.com/gray-wolf.jpg

    As for the background, you have a very good start, but go look at some hills on google or outside. Do you just see one hill and nothing else? Unless this is a ledge to the ends of Jamaa, you should still see some land in the distance.http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8024/7632384454_ae5edd1f4e_z.jpg
    Now you are thinking with perspective.

    As for the sword, the hilt, the tail armour, and the cuffs, you did a pretty good job. I'd still work on textures and leaving white spots on shiny surfaces though.

    Overall, it's pretty decent. You should try to work on texture, anatomy, and maybe shading/lighting.

    1. Yeppers! Thanks for the tips, I'll save 'em somewhere. Yesh, my anatomy is off, I'm just too lazy to correct it. ^.^ I decided to take some artistic liberties on stuff like the antlers and tail, it's animal jam after all. :P The cliff thing is more like a small rise, and the background is blurred trees (too lazy to draw them properly), it's all kinda set in Zios' forest. This is my second piece on the tablet, so I'm kinda new at this. XD

    2. I figured as much with the antlers that you did it on purpose, and das cool. The tail just looks awkward because it's very long, but do whatever you want with it. Like you said, it's AJ. (in reality, it would just slip off anyway so... MIRA MAGIC)

      The background does get less detailed as it gets farther away, but trees don't swirl around unless your wolf ate some funny mushrooms...
      Just a tip with background, things get from dark to light as you go from foreground to middle ground to background respectively. Basically, you add white to the colours for background.
      (sorry if you already knew this >.<)

      And you did really good for your second one. I use my tablet just for sketching or writing, but I mostly do traditional art. XD

  28. Snowy,since you asked for advice...my only suggestion is the face.It looks more like a deer than a wolf,just add some more fire to the face and mwahla!

    1. Old Frozenspirit is more of a peaceful (and deer-like?) animal in my mind, so I drew him/her/it that way. :)

  30. Your shading could use some work, the tail is a bit distorted. Other then those two flaws your excellent!

  31. well it is awesome and epic you are a great artist but if i had to say something wrong about it. well ok i can't say anything wrong about it. but if i were the artist i would give it a bit more life like make the tail a bit more up ward give it some shading work on the legs position and give the eyes some exspression but that is what i think and maybe not what you think.i consider myself a good artist and that drawing if extremely good i couldd draw that if i wanted to but never the same way you did it

  37. Hey Snowyclaw!
    That picture is awesome!
    Can you tell us what program you used?
    My Paint Tool sadly expired (I used free trial which was for a month)and because I was so busy at school I didn't even have time to use it so it quite became useless. Now I'm a bit of less homework from school but now I can't save, and some of the features aren't allowed to be used :( , I tried downloading the same program from 4 different websites, but they already knew that I had downloaded the trial version and I'm like re installing it and re getting the expired one...

    Thanks X3
