The Curse

werewolf curse werewolf transtformation female cursed pendant in pain crying crying for help

Digging around my archives I found this drawing I did of this female werewolf arms raised trying to call for help but being unable to with only howls and whimpers coming out. It was a unfinished line drawing that I made a couple years ago. I thought it would be cool to see if i could bump it up a notch with my new painting skills and recreate it in a more realistic way. Then I though why is she a werewolf? Being bitten by one was too cliche. I thought a cursed pendant would be the most effective way to portray that. It was kinda fun experimenting with the ‘special effects’. Unlike most werewolf art where the artist ether is trying to scare you or try to show off how bad-ass the monster is, I wanted the viewer to feel sympathy for her.

  1. You do beautiful work! I like that you are deliberate in trying to create a different reaction to the werewolf than typical depictions. Thanks for checking out my blog as well!
