Huhh... it's finished!
As I said I love so much the hyenas since my rpg times, and now finally I had some motivation to draw one.

I used pastels and colored pencils.

Thanks for the looking!

Son of Africa by *Qzurr "A powerful rendering. The effort the artist put into this piece is easily visible even from a glance." ( Suggested by Zethelius and Featured by Katmomma )
What I really enjoy most about your stuff is that you have different styles that you try out and can pull off extremely well, and this is a perfect example. I remember your old cute stuff, and now you're into realistic stuff and it just looks downright amazing.

My downright favourite aspect of this picture is the eyes. The deep yellow, and the shine in the eyes, and the multiple different shades of yellow in the irises just look gorgeous. His smiling muzzle and happy eyes are absolutely adorable, but still maintain 100% of the realism. The fur is amazing and it is all coloured (or pasteled?) in the correct direction, which would just absolutely drive me out of my mind to attempt. It shows that you have a very strong undertanding of fur and hyena anatomy and everything about what you wanted to draw beforehand, and that you just really knew exactly what you were doing. The ears are perfect, and once again you did an amazing job on the fur texture. I find the earrings and necklaces fit in well with the cultural aspects as well as the species, and they also look very nice! The smallest things are detailed perfectly, such as the teeth and the earrings and the medallion, and that kind of attention to detail is what seperates a great piece of art from a masterpiece. And I truly do believe this is a masterpiece.

I just saw recently that critiques were up for this piece, and just had to do one. You're one of my favourite artists, if not my favourite, and this is one of the best pieces of art I have ever seen.
