The rising sun by Gewalgon The rising sun by Gewalgon
:sun: :iconsunrise-lonewolf: :sun:
╭━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━╮
Keeping the light in my heart,
I will always be a sun's part.
Eyes directed into the blue,
I know I can everything do.
Soon begins my adventure,
For which I everything will venture!

╰━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━╯

It was supposed to be my Art Trade part for Sunrise-LoneWolf, but I alrady received so much beautiful gifts and drawings from her, that I just don't except something for it in return.
So please see it as a gift my dear, it comes from my dragonheart :heart:
Unfortunately the scanned version looked... just horrible (The Original looks much MUCH better this time O.o) So please don't wonder that it looks half digital/half traditional now... edited a lot with PS6.
I hope you like it anyway!

Hey, du bist die erste die es NICHT an Amaterasu erinnert, sogar an Prinzessin Mononokes Wölfe... das freut mich gerade riesig, weil ich Prinzessin Mononoke richtig toll finde :D

Danke! :la:

It's so beautiful! It reminds me of the main charakter of one of my favourite books "Wolfsaga" by Käthe Recheis (Sadly it's on german and was never translated into english :( )
I really love this picture :heart:

Danke, freut mich dass es dir gefällt! :-)
Klingt ja interessant! Dummerweise bin ich leider kein Leser, zumindest brauch ich da immer sehr viel Überwindung etwas anzufangen. (Allerdings sobald ich etwas angefangen habe und mich ab einer bestimmten Stelle hineingefressen habe, verschlinge ich das jeweilige Buch regelrecht und opfer dafür auch schonmal ganze Nächte wenn's so spannend ist xD)

Ich bin eine totale Leseratte :) Ich weiß auch nicht, ob das was für dich wäre, da es eher für so 12-13 jährige ist :) Da hab ichs auch gelesen, aber es hat mich soooo sehr beeinflusst :) Ich hab sogar mal ein Jahr lang an den Gott geglaubt, an den die Wölfe in dem Buch glauben (Ich war 12, ok! ;) )

Im Grunde um ein Rudel Wölfe, die eig ganz zufrieden in ihrem Tal leben, sie glauben an Waka, der alles im Gleichgewicht hält usw. Dann kommt ein Wolf aus dem Norden, der nicht an Waka glaubt, bzw. Waka hasst und will ein einziges riesiges Rudel schaffen, da er sagt, die Wölfe seien die mächtigsten Geschöpfe der Erde und sollen das auch zeigen. Das Rudel, unter anderem eine Art Schamane oder so (Shiriki, an den mich das Bild erinnert) Sie hauen dann ab und so, kämpfen gegen den "Bösen"...

Ok, das beschreibt zwar die Story ganz gut, aber triffts nicht ganz :/ Es geht viel um den glauben an Waka, der aber eher das Sinnbild für das Gleichgewicht der Natur ist.
:D Man könnte dieses Buch nie in kurze Worte fassen >.<

Das kann man kein Buch der Welt. Nicht mal Filme können Bücher wirklich gut "zusammenfassen" xD
Ich denke so ganz abwägig ist/war dein Glaube nicht, ich selbst glaube neben den "Alleinen" Gott Jaweh, auch an viele andere Götter, wie Gaia (Mutter Natur), Glücksgöttin Fortuna, Göttin der Liebe Aphrodite und andere Götter.
Sie gibt es sogar in vielen verschiedenen Kulturen unter verschiedenen Namen, so wie es verschiedene Namen für den "einzig wahren Gott" gibt.
Und so gibt es mit Sicherheit auch einen Gott des Gleichgewichts, vielleicht ist er nur unter einem anderen Namen bekannt :-)

Klingt aber nach einer spannenden Geschichte ^.=.^

Ok, so feedback time... :la:
 Firstly, wow. Just... wow! :wow:
Actually took me some time until I could transform my reactions into words lol! xD

I more than loved this drawing! And... so far this is by far the most "emotional" piece I have of Sun (since most pieces I have, even though really beautiful ones, don't have bg or any feeling expressed at all or just a bit). I can really feel the magic there and the emotion... You just CAUGHT her TOTALLY there!!
 Her character, personality, nature... even her likes! The same goes for her markings. And she is just so expressive there, Sunrise is being exactly Sunrise there!
I see a will and spirit of adventure and kindness through her beautifully done eyes. She looks both regal and friendly there. It is what I most liked above all! :love:
The poem is nice as well, looks you just translated the image into words! Inspirative! :D

Now into the objective part... Really spetacular work there as well, being it the least I can say.
 It is drawn on blackpaper but you used a lot of bright colors (that are mostly used on white paper) and managed them to look very good and shiny there. I's alright the editions on PS, I can definitely imagine how it can look on real: that shiny reflect you have through light and those intense and gradient colors? :)
 The shading is lovely there, really deep! Amazing enough how you "blended" both shadows and highlights! Looking to her nose and muzzle shading makes it looks pretty realistic!
The sun is impressive enough and I just loved it, totally! It looks so hope giving! The blue mist (?)/wave is contrasting to the other colors and so cool!

Just and add I would give you is that I see you're improving a lot on wolves too! The anatomy and fur texture are even better than the last time you did one, and also see the face muscles there. Very well done! :clap:

I really could say more about this piece but don't want to overload the comment! xDD
 But I surely felt better after it! I could sleep with a soft feeling last night and even could work a bit on stuff.
"Vieeeeelen Danke!! Liebte es viel! (still learning xD)" :heart:

Thank you very much for the detailed comment!
I'm really glad you like it and that you felt better after seeing it! :-)
That was my "goal" when I started to draw it! :D
I'm also glad that I could "catch" your Sunrise that well :-)
Well, in real it looks even more realistic than here, it looks like Sun could come out of the paper every moment.
Below the thing was supposed to be clouds, but it can be also mist or something else you can imagine^^

You're veeeeery welcome, it was a great pleasure for me! :heart:
