Welcome back to another week of awesome furry art. We’re in for a mostly magical list this time around, with a small side order of scifi.
So get out your magic tomes and screwdrivers – it’s time to jump into this week’s list, starting with:
7. Eerie Apothecary
Who said you can’t make pink work on a male character and still pull of a dark, gothic look? Starting off this week is an anime-style commission by DesuBox, featuring a very flamboyant unicorn mage of some kind. Don’t stare too long into those eyes – I have a feeling this pretty boy might try to enchant those he has an interest in.
6. Sethrak Mage
Now this one is for sure a magic user! We’ve got another awesome piece of World of Warcraft-inspired art, this time brought to us in the form of a commission by Howlite Art! Just take a look a how awesome the green looks against the Sethrak’s jet black scaley skin. The multiple eyes on his hood with those jagged, thunder bolt-like markings are equally wicked-looking too.
Drak Arts gives us a break from the darker side of magic with this brightly colored dragon that easily lairs on the #5 spot. Just because it’s lighter doesn’t mean it can’t still look badass though – and with long draconic whiskers, cackling electricity, and the ever-classic pipe, this piece certainly nails that. The color choice is great as well, and I really like how the colors on his wings blend into one another.
And now we’ve got the side order of technology for this week’s list, brought to us by a commission of a mechanic hyena by FoFI. The overall style is great, with lots of mechanical trinkets scattered here and there, and a neat-looking mechanical leg. I’m also really digging the tattoos on their arms – look at how intricate those are! I really dig the overall punk sci-fi aesthetic that’s going on in this piece.
Don’t get too focused on revenge, though – we’ve got the honorable mentions to take a look at:
Some pretty cool honorable mentions that make you want to sing, right? Now, let’s get onto the top three, starting with:
3. At the Ready
Gold appears a lot in drawings, but this awesome fox samurai by Yifeng LZ made me realize that silver needs more use. It’s such a neat color – just look at all the silver used in this drawing and how Yifeng makes it glisten and gleam! And once you’re done checking out the aweome silver desings, take a look at the face – this warrior is glowering and readying himself for the kill. In addition, the snow falling in the background really adds to the mood – it’s the quiet calm before a fierce duel.
Royz once again explodes onto the scene with another one of her excellent paintings, this time featuring a clash between two mythical beasts. This is such a cool piece to look at, with lots of nice small bits adding a sense of flow and motion. For example, you have sparks of embr flying around, and long hair that’s flowing as the two creatures battle it out. It’s a wild piece, that’s for sure!
And now, this week’s #1 pick is:
1. The Last Kiss
Settling into the #1 spot is this gentle, but sad, painting by Noxyfur. It seems we’ve found a mother with her child – but the mother is in the middle of transforming into a werewolf for eternity. Noxyfur did a great job capturing this moment with nice details such as the mother’s hair changing into werewolf fur. The darker colors also help bring the mood to life, and the abundance of crows adds a sense of omnious dread. It’s a piece that captures the imagination, and brings to life the sad side of a werewolf curse.
Congraulations and well-done Noxyfur! Your piece is the #1 pick for this week!
And that brings this week’s list of furry art to a close. Royz’s piece was excellent, but I really liked the emotion and theme that Noxyfur brought to life. But what do you all think? Do you agree with the list, or disagree? Was there a cool piece I missed out on this week? Let me know in the comments, and I’ll see you all next week!
