A tribute one of my favorite heroines in the history of anime. Holo the Wise Wolf, the titular fertility goddess of the light novel and animated series "Spice and Wolf" now available from Funimation. Holo is know for her love of apples, dislike of clothing, and for being able to assure bountiful harvests. One year, at the end of the harvest season, she decides to go on a journey back to her homeland in the frozen north and enlists the help of Lawrence Craft, a traveling merchant to guide and accompany her. So begins their journey.

reeetttaaarrrdddd.

its a fox silly billy :/. but a sexy fox all the same.


DeliciousOrange responds:

Holo's golden brown fur and white tipped tail are typically associated with foxes, but it also associated with the Maned wolf. While I agree that a white-tipped tail is especially rare for a wolf to have, all of the light novels and the animated series constantly refer to Holo as being a very proud wolf spirit.

great composition

love how the light from the lantern's being reflected on her

try googling images to find photographs of real models to use as a reference next time. that prevents the foreshortening from being off.

I also encourage that look think outside of anime, look up latino art, tinga tinga, russian constructivism, there's a ton of unique cultures out there that deserve to be explored more, so learn from them to take it to the next level.


DeliciousOrange responds:

I'm not sure what makes people think I didn't check this pose for plausibility. While I'll admit it's quite an unusual and somewhat contorted pose, I did make sure that it's possible for a human body to achieve such a position.

Personally I'm not a big fan of latino pop art or tinga tinga, they are interesting styles, but strike me as a bit juvenile in their development. Russian constructivism is actually a style I quite like to draw upon for it's sharp geometric look and bold solid colors, but this piece attempts to create a more traditional painted feel, drawing more upon baroque chiaroscuro paintings and classical turkish pinups. I do this while also trying to remain faithful to Kazuya Kuroda and Ayakura Juu's original illustrations of the character.

I'm not sure what to think about the rape part, but I'm glad you enjoy it. Just try to keep those hormones from going wild okay?
