Werewolf - 9 Stages of Life by KeksWolf Werewolf - 9 Stages of Life by KeksWolf
:bulletred: :bulletred: :bulletred: FULL VIEW IS A MUST!!! :bulletred: :bulletred: :bulletred:
(and please also read the artist's comment, cause i wrote it especially for you ;))

This is a HUGE picture... had to minimize it, this version is only half as big as the one i worked with.

I can't believe it's done! :faint:

For the last three days i have been doing nothing else but working on this (apart from eating and sleeping).
At first i sketched out all those wolfies, then scanned them and drew the final lines, then i wrote the text and colored them.
it. took. for. ever.
But now, i'm really happy with the result :)
I have had the idea for a pic like that for ages, but never managed to draw all those stages.
A lot of people have drawn references for the anatomy of werewolves, but i never saw an artwork that documents the stages of life of these creatures.
(btw, the 7-year-old is trying to catch an invisible flying donut, just in case you wonder...)


Yes, i left out the shapeshifting, and i know there are some fault-finders out there who keep saying "if it doesn't shapeshift, it's not a werewolf".
1) werewolves are fictional creatures. if i don't want mine to shapeshift, then they don't.
2) i call them "werewolves" in the sense of "creature, that is half human and half wolf", because that's what the word means.
And, most important,
3) it would have been too much work to include stages of shapeshifting in every age. x.X

dude, actually i don't even want to discuss that xD
well, just wanted to explain ^^ i guess you know what i mean ^^


This piece of art was not only challenging because i had to draw that many characters, but also because i had to write all the text in english, so all of you can read and (hopefully) understand it ^^
i'm not a native speaker (i'm german .__.) so i hope i didn't make too many mistakes concerning the grammar, vocabulary and such ^^'
I had a friend of mine take a look at it and check it for possible mistakes, so if there is still one left, blame her ;P

Anyway, i loved working on this, so i hope you like it a bit, too :)

every bit of this artwork is (c) :iconkekswolf: (me)
- do NOT use it in any way without my personal permission! i'm super cereal! -

If you find it useful and want to use it as references for poses or so, please ASK! i only bite on fullmoon don't bite. ;)

This is a wonderful piece of work. You have a high level of dedication and a beautiful style that, from what I can tell, is all your own. I look at and admire alot of art, but yours specifically has alot of heart. I can tell you enjoy what you do when you draw. Good stuff! Keep me occupied! :D

thank you so much! i'm flattered to hear such a compliment! :blushes:

(i've been toying with the idea of redrawing these stages of life for quite while now, but so far i couldn't bring myself to do so xD)
