Hunger by CristinaPenescu Hunger by CristinaPenescu
"Hunger"
Wolf
Acrylic - 21x22.5

A more stylized piece, I painted this in B&W and chose to use color only for the tongue.

Dear Deviant,

 

I have Favourited your deviation because I sincerely think it is worthy of such a title. If you are wondering why this message is so formal-sounding and impersonal in nature, it's because as a past non-DA user, I have been keeping all my favourite Deviations bookmarked in my browser for a couple of years, and I am finally uploading all those deviations unto my current DA profile! So while it is impractical for me to lay down a thoughtful comment for all these collected Deviations at this time, I want you to know that when I first came across your piece, it did (and still does) deserve a note of appreciation. I apologize for not being able to share individual comments at this time: your Deviation deserves it in my opinion!

 

Thanks for reading,

DaniBeez

Love the idea of "colorkeying" the tongue!

That tongue, man. That tongue just POPS right out of the picture. I was looking at a thumbnail of it, and I thought the wolf itself was just a sketch - I didn't notice the details - but it's still a really nice contrast.

May I ask what "B&W" is? Other than that, I must say that the title of this piece and the color scheme were cleverly done! Nice work; I'll fave!

B&W refers to the fact that the painting is black and white. Only three acrylic colors were used for that, Carbon Black, Titanium White, and Titan Buff to give the B&W toning a slightly warmer tone. :)

Oh, OK! I should have guessed that, since you talked about choosing to only use color for the tounge in the same scentence. Oh well, thanks for getting back to me CristinaPenescu! I am learning the art lingo, it seems. :)

Sorry, 1 more thing. The wolf's body is really detailed, but I think you need to work it on the tongue more. I'm not being annoying! No! It's your art, but I just want to give you an advice, it's up to you^^
Umm, so.. I think you need to put lighter colour around the veins. And made the fur around the tongue slightly wet, ya know.. To give more impression of being licked^^
Sorry if I said something wrong

Wow.. The fur detailed is so amazing, I've never seen a such beautiful painting like this. You're really awesome^^
I really like it's fur and it's eyes. Crystal, more likely greyish crystal. And the tongue! Damn, the tongue is reeally awesome. But I think it missed a few veins, y'know.. Hmm, maybe you can made it a bit more firm for the veins beneath the tongue. But all in all, it's really awesome. My mouth was hangin' back there and I wished I can draw animals especially wolves like this^^
Please continue with your great arts!!

I still cannot believe that this is acrylic. I use that medium and I cannot imagine doing this. I thought it was a photo manipulation (selective color and B&W) until I read the descrip. Absolutely amazing!!!

I can't believe this is done with acrylics, it's so finely detailed. I like the color in the tongue, I think that the eyes would've looked nice colored too. Either way, it is a great piece :)
