Author Comments

"Lycanthropes were one of the first few intelligent lifeforms to be assimilated into the amalgamate after its initial outbreak in the north. Due to the remote location, many of the surviving lycanthropes resided there too, and it did not take long until they noticed something strange in their woods. However this new species was not something they could end with their sharp claws, after they would be attacked by the amalgamate few had the intellect to flee instead of fighting. And as such the amalgamate could spread wide in the dense forests due to the curiosity and aggression of the lycanthropes. As it would continue to spread it would continuously draw near more of the curious lycanthropes and wildlife, creating a self amplifying loop of infected creatures. The lycanthopes would cease their fighting among themselves and become united as one, but perhaps not in the way any of them would have wanted.

It wouldn't be long until the changes the amalgamate was causing would be noticed, after which rigorous efforts would be made to purge it off of the planet."

Great piece. The ambiance, lighting and even the hints of red throughout the background give me feeling of either Aliens or the Borg from Star Trek TNG. Definitely a good job portraying a sense of wrongness to back away from in how the creatures don't look familiar anymore to their original forms. Good use of specular lighting. I have yet to get lighting right with my pieces.

Thank you CafeCorgi! I cannot state in text how much I appreciate to get comments with a bit of analysis thrown in there, it is always interesting to hear what other people think of my art.
Good luck with your lighting studies, always remember to learn the 3d-shape of the thing you are drawing as well as the direction of the light to make lighting things much easier.
