Celtic Kiss by swandog Celtic Kiss by swandog
Commission for Celtic Man, done as a gift for :iconillahie:, of their two chars (gray wolf and Irish elk) and Duncan, Illahie's pet ferret...I made the knotwork and spirals orange and green to symbolize the colors of the Irish flag (since the location is in Newgrange, Ireland), and the kilt in the colors of Celtic Man's family tartan (or as close as I could approximate it, anyway). The flowers and jewelry are also symbolic of the chars. :) (And since many people have asked, I used only colored pencils--mainly Caran D'Ache--mechanical pencil and drawing pens, and the pic took me about 3 months to finish. You can see the WIP lineart here: [link] )

Edit: I never dreamt I would get a DD on this!! :faint: Thank you so much, `cooley and `savagebinn!!! :heart:

I really like the use of shading and colors in this. For some reason a pet ferret present in such a serious/romantic scene makes me laugh a bit. It's that piece of left field that makes you think and not leave after a single glance.

This might be the greatest thing I have ever seen. I am a wolf and my boyfriend is an elk, and I have a pet ferret that looks exactly like that one
