I had to figure out what the rest of the wolf class looked like before I could finish the comic pages, so :iconfablepaint: and I took a day to hammer out some designs. Making them up on the spot can be dangerous - background character design is actually pretty important because it establishes the range of what people can look like in your world.

Can you spot Rip's siblings? ;)

Also, these are "grown up" designs. I like to figure out their final look and then "youngify" them from there.

Henceforth, will be crossposting everything I put on DA to my tumblr ( kayfedewa.tumblr.com/ ) but i will usually have more in depth descriptions there. I hope you follow me!

Environment painted by :iconfablepaint: as always!

The top center female is so pretty. She almost has a husky or malamute look to her. XD

Love these designs, wow! For background characters they are surprisingly well done, I wouldn't mind if they were all main characters C: The middle one at the top though, the very rounded feminine looking one, does not quite strike me as a wolf, though. She looks very malamute to me. It could be purely because of the tail shape, I think.

Also, was one of your parents a twin or something?? XD You seem to never not have a set if twin OC's.

I have watched your work for a while and I've always loved your designs and the how diverse each wolf is. Lately though I notice you've been really pushing the diversity further in your wolves, even in background characters. Just wanted to say I really admire that.

Hmms I think Kay said a while ago that she didn't particularly like nor connect with Nightrun, so she created Cricket instead.

Oh man, I love all of these guys! Its too bad they are background characters, because there are such great possibilities for them all! I can't decide on a favorite, my eyes keep going to the plump one in the middle though. He/she is very cute! But I also love Mister Spikey in the front, and the skinny emo one. The fancy thin one has my favorite markings, I think. 

The twins, I'm afraid might look a bit too much like Rip.. although I do like them, because it is nice to see that there are some brighter/richer colored background characters, and I do think you should keep that variety. Actually, with that in mind, it would have been nice to see another reddish toned student.

thanks a lot!
they arent background characters as in "never speak and you just see them behind someone in the frame." more like secondary characters who interact with the main ones but whose personal background stories i may or may not get in to
they will see significant screen time tho
really reddish tones i am reserving for a specific pack - the one swift and blood come from originally - everyone there has red coats!

Oh, well, with that in mind, I really love the choices you've made! I also just went to your tumblr, and noticed that the twins are Rip's siblings. So I guess it is good that they remind me of him!
