Year of the Wolf Warrior

Hello all! Sorry for the lateness of this post, but I’ve finally managed to finish this wolf warrior themed sketch for this week’s main post (due yesterday). I was actually afraid to upload this as I thought I messed it up a great deal at 2am… but managed to pluck up the courage to upload it today.

Year of the Wolf Warrior

Year Of The Wolf: This piece gains inspiration from and is a twist of the Chinese zodiac “Year of the Dog”.

I did this using watercolour, gouache, and ink on a Saunders Waterford NOT pressed watercolour block. Size: 280 x 180mm.

I think the mistakes came instantly when I decided to draw directly onto the block without planning first. I ended up drawing and erasing marks repeatedly which damaged the surface, so when applying a wash after inking, the previously erased lines showed up.

I was gutted when this happened, but I’ll admit, I know Saunders is an amazing paper, but for me personally, it’s not for my kind of spontaneous ink and colour pieces. I should have treated my surface with more respect.

Moving on, I drew some Chinese calligraphy to suit the piece, and the writing literally means “Wolf” (as in the animal).

This warrior is different from the others I did because he isn’t equipped with any traditional weapons… however, he doesn’t need them! He has his fangs and claws to do damage with… he’s already equipped and ready to go!

Hope you enjoy as always. Cheers for now!
