My piece for the amazing Werewolf Calendar 2015! Have you seen the other art that has been done for next year? Augh, it’s all so good!  Pre-orders open on Sept. 1st, 2014 at Midnight US Pacific time!

"Not unlike their human counterparts, Werewolves are highly ritualistic beings, and each pack possesses their own unique rituals that are performed for the perceived benefit of their livelihood. Hunting for food is a large part of werewolf life and as a result a great deal of their culture is centered around the success of the hunt.  Werewolves attempt to draw in good fortune for their hunts through elaborate song, decoration, adornments, dance, and sometimes even specific sequence of events. Many believe that a successful hunt heavily depends on the exacting nature of these rituals, and therefore delegate the performance of these sacred rites to the most worthy and experienced members of the pack."

I am entranced by inventing otherworldly creature cultures, and the calendar’s vision of werewolves is rich inspiration. Imagine a hunting ceremony that is an intricate dance of controlled patient power, which culminates in gracefully allowing the deep red cloth to fall into warm, salty water. The cloth darkens, drawing in water to symbolize drawing fresh blood. If the dance is done right, the hunt should be good.

The travertine pools of Pamukkale, Turkey, fascinate me, so I was happy to have a chance to paint this natural wonder alongside the supernatural.

Once again I challenged myself with texture and light, why do I paint so much water?? Painted in Corel Painter X

This is too much

That is absolutely disgusting!!!!!!! They are NOT baptist and they are NOT Christians! They are a cult and they need to be stopped somehow! How do they expect people to come to know Jesus Christ as their savior if they picket at funerals and say horrible things? That is not an example of how God wanted Christians to be. I am so embarrassed that they call themselves a baptist church and Christian when I am one myself… 

Amen
