I fave'd this long ago but, I never mentioned that I think this is one of my favorite illustrations of all time!
I like the sandstone color background wash that plays off the colored pencil texture of the fur. And the costume design, Kokopeli pose, and Coyote's eyes show good attention to detail and character expression. Even the symbolic sun-ray swirls give a sense of motion.
I was a little bit inspired by it when I did the background for: [link]
I might have commented on this before, I can't remember, but this is such and awesome piece. I found this when I first came to DA and it was one of the first to get me started on my own art-path. It's hard for me to describe how this makes me feel cause I'm not good with words, but I'll always love this. Thank you for drawing it. [=
I'm not really into anthro, but this one is exceptional. I can't believe you made such a detailed artwork just by using colored pencils and acrylics (I think?). I wish I had your talent and patience to draw.
Good lord, it's Coyote! Do not trust him! He's a trickster! He waits in the desert, luring men with promises of riches untold, then leaving them to die! A born killer, he is!
This picture is beautiful. The pose, again, a huge amount of motion. The coloring is immaculate. I recognized the Native American influence of this picture, so I referenced their legends above. The flute made me think Kokopelli, but the player definitely screams Coyote. You are a talented artist. Go forth! I want to see your art in a gallery! You have the talent, and the skill!
I love your use of texture and masterful shading. The colors really harmonize and the proportions are harmoniously made. Great job on the fluidity of the pose; the coyote looks like he is dancing because of the uneven feet and the overall "delicacy" or instability of the pose. Plus, who wouldn't like an adorable coyote? I can really connect to this because I often feel the same blissful sentiments when I play music...
I think the feathers in the head look a bit too flat, however, so maybe you could have added shading or eliminated the strings hanging from them (they look a bit like strange ribbons, don't they?). I also think the whole thing might have looked even more amazing with more fur shading, also.
Still, feathers or no feathers, I adore this drawing. I love how the picture interacts with the background (the latter making the former "pop out" but still holding interest with its textures and background designs). This is an excellent anthro. It is truly a wonderful picture--definitely worth a fav!
you did a great job in it miss kyoht. the way you drew it, and the way you colored it with yellow tons make it look really calm. also the coyote has a very friendly face, and he looks extremely good in the native's outfit. congratulations, that was a really great drawing.
