Auro Concept art by KayFedewa Auro Concept art by KayFedewa
concept art for a main character in my new graphic novel. not supposed to be a polished piece.

I had a pretty bad day. but one that left me feeling strangely clear. one of those days where you hit rock bottom so cant go anywhere but up. I turned off my brain for this picture, and just did whatever i felt like, with no rhyme or reason.

her name is tentative...trying it out to see how it feels.same with design. just a concept based on some cool looking dog photos

let me know if you like her. will put up more concept ideas of her

Even though it's not polished, it's still something remarkable. I too have some days where I just draw with feeling and no thought. Sometimes the greatest things pop up during these times. You never know. :)

Lovely design, simple but recognisable. The name sounds more male than female to me, though.

I agree with *caligis, Aura is a more feminine sounding name, but you can name her whatever you'd like ^^ I really like the design. At first I thought she was missing an eye though, X3. haha...
I really hope you feel better soon <3 I know what you mean about hitting rock bottom. But don't worry things will get better, though I think you know that by now. :hug:

Awesome drawing!! The whole feeling of the picture just screams arctic dog, and so does the name... But I think Auro sounds a little masculine. Maybe Aura or something? Sorry, I really don't mean that to sound like I think this piece is anything less than EPIC. Because it is epic.

Yeah, I didn't want to say siberian or malamute or anything.. Just used the blanket term "arctic" instead. Alaskan husky is so much more authentic! I have never met a working sled dog that was a full blooded siberian husky.

I asked Kay about this and she said there are some, just like there are some pure malamutes, but it's basically what dog you need for the job and why. You'd be surprised how many border collies pull! And alaskan husky is, in general, a kind of blanket term for a sled-dog mutt. The beauty of this particular kind of mongrel is we can get a LOT of body variation for character design while keeping very true to the real thing.

Exactly! There's a lot of room for creativity without going sparkledog... I'm sure you guys are overflowing with ideas, but I thought I'd throw these alaskan huskies your way :D (sale ads from back home)

I do like it. I'm wondering if this new graphic novel is BBA-related or what, I know a while back you said you had something new planned for it.

:iconfablepaint:

No, the story is independent of BBA. That said we did heavily revise BBA's story.

The roughly sketched tufts of black fur look beautifully simple, yet still conveys a lot of reality. This really looks like you're feeling the character out so I'm not sure what she's like, but I liked her upon first glance. Overall it seems deceptively calm, and I feel like there's a jagged edge to her. <3

I hope you won't mind my asking.... but I'm curios to know if BBA will continue of if it's on the 'back burner'(to be continued) possibly? I love your comics and that one sucked me a=in 100%! ^_^
But I won't bug you about that.... but I Do love Tentative's design and gorgeous eye color! Too cool! Hope to see this sweetheart in your new(?) graphic novel! ^_^

Keep up the superbly epic art & comics! You are a huge help in trying to perfect my wolf/canine anatomy especially on certain perspective poses! Kudos to ya on that! ^_^ :glomp::iconkayfedewa::hug:s

It's backburner for now. This project is our exploration of some mature themes and experimentation. BBA isn't far from our hearts and we would like to look at it again, but stuff like this will continue our development as artists and storytellers in directions we haven't gone before.
