SDCC today!!! I’ll be walking around with Vern, if anyone wants to say hi.
I should go to bed, but I’m trying to draw Terryl a thing. I knew I should have finished that portrait yesterday.
Ok, the black dog has finally made it to the point where I don’t think it looks terrible and I actually like it. Still needs more work, but it’s past the really ugly point.
Wheeee, the shading on the leftmost dog is killer! White is always so hard but it looks so good. And soft— I just wanna snuggle ‘im (or her)! :3
Him and he’d take a butt scratch. Alva is an awesome deaf sheltie that has competed in agility. He’s been having issues with his shoulders lately, though. :( I am glad that the shading is working. I haven’t been sure if the shading is to subtle and had been looking awfully bright and flat for a while. I was stumped for a while and went to ikrutt's inspiration blog's inspirational white tag to look at how other people have handled it.
One of Vern’s wrists broke the other month and I just fixed it. Now he’s ready for SDCC.
It’s really hard thinking about how werewolf packs would work.
On one hand, actual wolf packs do not have an alpha, alpha female, beta, etc.
But if humans were to become werewolves and form a pack, due to our nature we could probably create a hierarchy. There /would/ be an alpha or somebody in charge. We would probably /use/ terms like alpha and omega and all that BS because the general public doesn’t /know/ what wolf packs really consist of.
TAPS HEAD AND THINKS
IIRC, the ‘alphas’ of wild wolf packs are basically just parents, right? Maybe the ‘alpha’ could whoever turned the ‘pack members’. Maybe they’re the only one allowed to turn people in the pack, and if someone else wants to turn someone, they have to leave and start their own pack. I guess it depends closely you want to follow animal behavior. Maybe there could be exceptions.
OR you just use the alpha/beta/omega system because that was observed in captive, unrelated wolf groups (I think), and if a bunch of unrelated people become wolves, that might just be what happens. And, like you said, most people just don’t know how wolves really work.
OR you could have both.
Ahh, Terryl Whitlatch is going to be at SDCC!
