man I didn't favorite it yet. Everytime I visit your site I look at this piece of art.
I really love the atmosphere in there. It is so well done. The smooth shading and the light. Just beautiful.

this would be a great warwick skin
Sezaii Featured By Owner Dec 12, 2014
You've probably heard it enough times, but of course this picture is so beautiful! I still don't know how artists like you can shade so well and so detailed. May I ask whether you think SAI would be better option for shading in this realistic style than Photoshop (I use CS4, but really struggle with anything other than cel shading as the brushes just don't do it for me)?

 This pic is so captivating, I can hardly describe how much I adore it. I look up to you so very much and I know that through much practice and patience, I will be able to live up to your glorious example.
Everything about this picture, I looove! The ripples of bright, intense red flowing through his ivory fur along with his electric blue eyes really provide a glorious contrast paired with his facial expression and arm position. Everything together really creates a sense of power and strength, yet elegance and beauty. Heck, that symbol in the backround, I really dont know if it means anything, but I still love it.
Your example really inspires me to keep practicing and trying new things, pushing my artistic ability to new limits. 
Sorry for the long comment, I couldn't help myself this time, I always have something to say, but I always withdraw. (I hate being shy, it's my weakness)  It took me a while to build up the courage to post this, and well, here it is. If you took the time to read this, I just want to say thanks.
PS: 23 hours! that's mayhem! I bow down to your patience. Emoticon: Bow

I saw the drawing's video it was cool
ashmaxtheswagger122 Featured By Owner Oct 5, 2014
I wish i was as talented as you, i'm trying soooo hard to color and shade my drawings, i'm only 13 though and i'm not as experienced. i'm actually slowing down my pace, i used to do sketches and drawings that i wouldn't finish. but now i'm taking my time and completing one drawing at a time, my account ain't completed yet so i still have some work to do :'( but i can't wait until i'm very proud of what i do :D
Grypwolf Featured By Owner Oct 6, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
It i GOOD to complete stuff and it takes time. Hours even days. 

Also you are even younger than I was when I started drawing "seriously", so I would not worry so much. But be proud of your work even if it is not a master piece! every drawing we do, teaches us something new ^_^
ashmaxtheswagger122 Featured By Owner Oct 18, 2014
Thanks Gryp, that helped A LOT  believe it or not. I will keep your holy message in mind. Like i said, you are my idol and always will be ;) i will try my very best in drawing and hopefully, sooner i will get to your level, thanks soooooooooooooo much Grypwolf... i will never forget this message XD

Grypwolf Featured By Owner Aug 1, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
Aww. But where do you feel he is watching? :'333
johnny44speedy Featured By Owner Aug 2, 2014
sorry i didnt mean to offend you...and i am almost certain his eyes are blue, but if they were the red parts then that would look more eagerly sharp...i think xD
really good looking piece
Grypwolf Featured By Owner Aug 2, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
And you are correct there. they are blue --- and red.
johnny44speedy Featured By Owner Aug 2, 2014

This is amazing! Did you use a custom brush in Sai? And, how exactly did you add the shadows? (You don't have to reply, I'm just wondering)
Grypwolf Featured By Owner Jun 2, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
There is actual timelapse video about progress, it is not good quality one, but it shows something :3

Loved your time laps for this paint. Beautiful character that you use as your sona <33 Heheh, haven't visited my DA in one thousand years X'D But wanted to watch you before I forgotz .n.^ Your pics are always what I turn to for a boost of inspiration, Grype ^^ Keep up the /EPIC/ work ^.D.^
Virensere Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Hey Gryp! This is like, one of my most favorite pieces of yours, and a really big inspiration!
But i wanted to ask about the timelapse video you have.
I know it's a sudden question out of the blue, but how long time did it take you to render the video?
Your art and timelapses have really inspired me to make timelapses aswell, and i'm having a bit of trouble with that part.
Anyways, amazing work, and stay awesome, Gryp! <3
Grypwolf Featured By Owner Apr 6, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
aww thanks sweetie! 

Usually it takes up to 40 mins - 2 hours to render video after I have done cutting and editing which will take more than 4 hours usually.
what problems are you having?
Virensere Featured By Owner Apr 6, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Thank you for answering!
For me, i guess i haven't really done all i should have done in the editing part, since my rendering took me from 10 to 6 hours.
So i don't really know what i didn't do right when editing.
The result of the video was, that it was a but shaky and it was sort of lined horizontally. 
LexXCinci Featured By Owner Mar 27, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist awesome....!
