The Parrot and the Wolf by Lucky978 The Parrot and the Wolf by Lucky978
Contest Entry for :iconthewolfpack:
The theme was "wolf with ______" I chose to do "wolf with parrot"

At first I was just going to draw a traditional wolf and a parrot but then I decided this would be more pretty XD
I have been working on it for a while now but decided to finish it off today. I hope the BG is okay ^^; I was going to do something complex but decided to stay simple because the characters themselves are so busy.


Edit: Just found out today that I am not the first person to have come up with this concept: [link]
I assure you that this idea was not stolen from the original. I'm sorry for any trouble.

wooh! I drew something extremely similar to this back in the 9th grade, except not the same pose and I never finished coloring it because I'm a very impatient person >.>.

Ummm I'm sorry? I'm honestly kind of confused by this comment. If you are concerned that this character is stolen from you, I assure you it is not. If I remember correctly I drew this while I was on a flight to Canada about a year ago (no references...which is pretty obvious from the poor anatomy). Obviously I cannot make you believe me, but for what it is worth- I am no art thief.

I don't doubt you. I just think it's kind of odd that you seemed to be claiming the concept as something of yours and that you disapproved of anyone else using it.

Even back in 2005 when I posted my picture, I had a friend comment on it saying that she had drawn herself a flock/pack of Macaw-wolves many years previous to ever seeing my version. Wolves like this seem like a unique, original thing though, trust me, they aren't by any means. ^^;

Ohhh sorry, I just realized the comment you were refering to "I think I am going to adopt the parrot wolf as a new character, so no stealing!"

Haha this is actually an inside joke with one of my friends. I'm not serious about it by any means, but now I can see how it would seem shallow. I'll take it out of my comment box.

Love! But. This bothers me. The markings on the parrot's right wing are missing.


o.o This is a curse I have, sort of. OCPD

Obsessive Compulsive Perfectionism Disorder.

It's only triggered by certain things.

And this is one of them.

Rofl. Feel loved that I like it enough to eye-twitch at it! :D Great work.

Haha I actually did that intentionally...sort of an informal balance thing. But you know, it's starting to bother me now as well *twitch twitch*

The other funny thing is that the wolf's other leg is completely missing XD I didn't even notice that until like a week after I completed the drawing.

Owo

Now WHY'd you hafta tell me that! XD :rofl:

Nice. :D

It's stuff like that...The little details that go unnoticed...That will eventually get me killed. :P

Like, I got myself STUCK in chest deep snow today...Tried to walk five feet to frame up a picture of a buried cornfield.

lol Cornfield. Buried. In snow. Me....5'2"... <.< >.>

My dad had to help pull me out, and then I got to dig for my boots. :D And sad thing is? It wasn't worth it! The pictures turned out horrible because I chose a rather empty spot in the cornfield. :( lol!

I think going with the background you went with was a good choice. The characters are busy indeed but the topic is also a bit unique (you don't see too many pictures of a wolf and macaw-type bird flying around together!) and I think a background like a complex forest or whatever might have taken away from the characters.
I think you picked a perfect topic c: the colors look great on both the bird and the wolf.

Yes i think the background looks good simple as it makes those wondeful animals stand out more :)
What do the characters mean on the wolf's leg and arm? and in the corner? I am intrigued :)
I also love the way you've done the wolf's tail ^_^
