So I found this the other day, in a scrap/sketch pile I'd forgotten on one of my shelves. I figured, it looked okay, despite the fight the fountain pen had given me. (Bad nib? Bad ink? I can't recall!) I figured I'd post it while we're waiting for me to throw out more commission work. (Getting things done while initiating the first steps of moving is trickier than I remembered, ha!)
So it's a were pallanoph, or a werenoph. Werenoph sounds better. I do hope I won't regret posting this, since I know that people are unwilling to read descriptions, or use their eyes, and thusly this poor beast will land himself in peoples' "woof and werewoofs" collections. Don't do that, he doesn't like the company.
I didn't accomplish much of interest in terms of the were-concept. Maybe his behavior is less frenzied and sporadic, and more cold and focused? Maybe he only comes out on eclipses?
I did, however, want to add more of the human anatomy in, as I enjoy drawing human anatomy very much, but... I loathe drawing human heads most of the time, unless I have a good reference.
Aside from that, things you should know: Werenophs don't exist in the canon of my novel, so this is just fun and games. And for the record, werewolves don't exist either. Thought you should know!
