In A Wolfrider's Bond by Wildfire - Posted Jan 24, 2019
@Tah-Marien Thank you! I wanted to do 3D specifically because it would be something a bit different for the calendar, I always enjoy seeing people's different styles :)

@Yavia, I wish! I'd love to work on an EQ short! Honestly, I didn't really need to use that many programs, I could've done all of it in Maya and some of the "programs" I mentioned are smaller parts of Maya. Xgen is the built-in hair/fur/grass/etc system for example, and Arnold is the default render engine. A program within a program if you will. Thank you!

Thank you! I agree that the Go-Back's living environment probably helped shape her, and I really enjoy her character, don't get me wrong. She's just hard to like sometimes haha
In Captive by Tamarien Flaten and Czarine - Posted Jan 12, 2019
The colours in this are freaking cool, it's amazing. The poem fits wonderfully as well, despite your language barriers, you guys really made this entry shine!
Maybe next year should be collabs :D it's really cool to see how ideas and artists come together.

Ahh another sweet one.  Man that wolf is HUGE. Good thing they're pals!
In Dreamberries by Czarine - Posted Jan 12, 2019
This is gorgeous! I adore the colours and the scene and the ah. everything! Redlance looks so soft and kind here.
In A Lifetime of Love by Dreamweaver - Posted Jan 12, 2019
This is probably the EQ story I've reread the most over the years, it's such a stunning and heartbreaking moment. The illustration definitely shows that you poured a lot of emotion into it, it's very lovely.
In Belonging by Startear - Posted Jan 12, 2019
Ahhh this is so sweet! I adore these two and their bond, I'm so happy that you decided to illustrate it :)
In Past and Future by jaRf - Posted Jan 12, 2019
100-200 hours?? Holy smokes, you have a level of patience that I could never even strive for! That's incredible.

The result is really lovely, I'm particularly keen on the snake tongue & braid wrapping around him, that's a cool way of tying the past/future together. The snake looks scary but in a very cool way that jiives well with the image.

(and I agree with your FQ comment, some things definitely should've been left mysterious)
In Bonded (This is Home) by Christoph Schilling - Posted Jan 12, 2019
Maaaan this is beautiful! The blue palette works wonderfully and all of the parts keeps drawing the eye to more and more detail.
In Bonded Burdocks by Yavia - Posted Jan 12, 2019
Hahah this is awesome! Treestump has got to be in full "uncle" mode to stand for it, it doesn't look like it's the first time either   :lol
In Morning Glory by Treefox - Posted Jan 12, 2019
What a bold composition! The fact that Littletrill fills up this much of the picture really drives home how somewhat strange the bond is, he could eat Aroree in a mouthful! As always it's technically beautiful and the sense of motion is just   :love
In Soft Sunlight by ShuijE - Posted Jan 12, 2019
I considered doing these two for last years calendar, they do make a lovely picture. As others has said, this looks so warm and soft, it's really well done especially given the limited palette that you've chosen!
In Burden of Command by Rosalie - Posted Jan 12, 2019
Nice! I like the composition, the metaphorical as well as the very literal way that Kahvi and Cutter are standing to the side while the tribes are enjoying themselves.
In My Heart is Full by Maggie - Posted Jan 12, 2019
This is so lovely! I really admire your linework, it's a wonderful blend of soft and hard edges that looks so effortless but is so hard to achieve!
In A Wolfrider's Bond by Wildfire - Posted Jan 10, 2019
Thanks guys! I'll probably do a breakdown post with WIPs so it makes more sense at some point but here's the short version:

jaRf is right, it is a render. I just painted over it at the end because I ran out of time  :lol I decided to try some new programs and that was pretty timeconsuming. The characters are made in Maya & zbrush, their clothes in Marvelous Designer. Hair, fur, trees, and grass etc in xgen. It's rendered with Arnold and the final paintover was done in Photoshop. Because I took so long to mess around with xgen and MD, I had to skip all of the cool compositing, shading and texturing I’d envisioned lmao. It’s amazing that I work with 3D every day and I still manage to vastly underestimate projects like this. I learned a ton along the way though and even if the scope wasn’t quite right, it was a lot of fun!
In Brothers in The Hunt by Sheryl Schopfer - Posted Jan 05, 2019
Ahh this is so cute! Strongbow and his wolf, truly a bond worth depicting!
In Depths of Love by Tamarien Flaten and Solace Enterline - Posted Jan 05, 2019
This is really nice with the thick lineart and delicate shading. The colours feel very coherent, lovely piece
In Playtime by Czarine - Posted Jan 05, 2019
I had to download this and put it into photoshop to figure out how you got that lovely sense of warmth and depth from such a limited palette. I really like how soft it is, even with the crisp lineart, you can really feel the heat from the last bit of sunshine in the desert! And the bond is very sweet, I don't think many people would've chosen this version of the Rayek&Leetah bond!
In Two Prize Fawns by April Suzanne Durfee Landon - Posted Jan 05, 2019
Ohh so colourful! They're so cute together in this picture, really lovely. I agree with Treefox, seeing more of their friendship in the comics would have been great because it really was a sweet bond they had
In Bonded by Youth, Friendship and Mischief by Ric Rijnders - Posted Jan 05, 2019
I can't see the fullsize picture either :(

But the colours of the tree are really pretty and of course Sust would be the one to have to literally pull his wolf down from a tree lmao. Good job on the expressions as well!
