Among the Wolves by MNat Among the Wolves by MNat

Based on one of the most pivotal (and one of my favorite) scenes in "Jewel of Fire", the 7th book in the Chronicles of Westria by Diana L Paxson.

I have made several attempts at illustrating this scene in the past, all of which you can find documented here on my tumblr blog--> scribbleymark.tumblr.com/post/…

Give me another year, and I'll probably do *another* version XD

Another really strong composition (just what I'd expect from MNat!) - I like what you've done with the reflections on the blades. :D (Big Grin)

This is a fantastic piece! Love all the facial expressions (so many!) and the threatening ominous light reflecting from the swords <3 That pile of stones in the middle there by the mountainside is also super well coloured (lol it's a detail but it's an awesome one so I needed to point it out x)

I worked so hard on that pile of stones-- So inordinately hard! I'm glad that work paid off! (Now If only I'd spent that amount of time on everything in this illustration....) XD

I've glad you like it! It was quiet a challenge to paint.

Thanks so much! :D

I did just realize that I put like, 8 dudes in this illustration and there would have been a time when I thought that that was WAY TO MANY PEOPLE. IT'S NOT EVEN POSSIBLE. XD I guess....I've grown? I've grown, Merry!

Ohh, this is definitely my favorite of the four. I love the composition! And the LIGHT. And that grinning dude in the bottom left.
