Alpha and Nightingale Comparison - Concept by KayFedewa Alpha and Nightingale Comparison - Concept by KayFedewa
The Alpha of Inaria with the oldest Triumvir. Have they met before...?
-------------
starting to feel satisfied with these silhouettes
I put the two together on a sheet while further working on their designs. thought i would share

heres an update of where im at with these two:
-desaturated Night a bit. He was a pretty warm black before
-warmed Alpha's topcoat slightly
-altered Nights hackle marking
-Slight silvering on Nights nose to indicate age
-changed Nights white markings to silver
-removed Alpha's white rim around her mane and also changed the markings above forelegs and hindlegs
-changes Nights Eyes from warm yellow to a yellowish green

thanks for tuning in to the update!

Whitemist could work as a name for the alpha female.

She looks like a Risingwind,but Swanfeather is quite a pretty name too ^^
I love how the female alpha looks so soft and kind.You capture a character's personality just by drawing them!^^
Similarly,Night looks very strong and powerful!

I really love the two of them. I just wonder why don't keep the yellow/gold eyes for Night ? I think that the contrast might have been interesting ?

If you want to indicate age, add some grey hair around the eye and muzzle. elderly wolves and dogs go grey in this area especially black ones

They're both very beautiful wolves. :D I especially love Nightingale. I have a feeling that he'll become a strong favorite. :>  If I may give a little input here, I think most of the changes you made are great and improve them is subtle but important ways. Night's silver markings though, I feel become a little too blended into his dark coat with that color.  As white, they added a lighter splash that really gave a nice balance and variety, but that's just my two cents. ^-^ over all it's great.  I just thought I'd share if that's okay.

hey blue! Thanks for the feedback -
as far as watcher feedback, its been a pretty even split between people who favor the white vs silver
I do like the white for its dramatic effect, which is why i originally had it that way. But the more i looked at him the more it bothered me how much the white spots pulled the eye. His face is rather dark (no light markings or contrast) so it was being trumped by the loud markings.
I feel by toning those down, his face can act more as the area of interest now.

I think your feeling about him becoming a favorite is likely accurate... because he's become mine! and he's hard not to like, the way im writing him!

Ahhh, yeah, I can see how that would pull away from the face. :3 Well, cool.  Thanks for responding so quickly :D That was really nice of you. In light of your explanation, I do see how the toned down markings are easier to focus on the face now.  Good call.

And oh my gosh! I'm so excited to see him in the comic. :D

Sorry to double comment but I had another thought: It might be interesting to see the fur on their ribs/bellies switched? Since the alpha seems clean cut and petite, while Night is more scruffy. 
Reply
:iconkayfedewa:
KayFedewa Featured By Owner Apr 4, 2014
ya i see what you mean. Night is a bit vain and a fastidious groomer, which is why i have all the places he could easily reach pretty smoothed out. Alpha's belly scruff is supposed to show her general long length of fur - and also balance out that very smooth topline. 

if theres someone i think i really ought to scruff up it's Bear. He has a lot of work left to go.
Im glad you like the changes, as ive said I respect your designs and always appreciate your input, so thanks for always commenting on these!

Of course, I am happy to help :) It is really fun for me to see the development as well, from a viewer's standpoint I always look forward to what comes next with each design. 

And with the context, I think you did great with the belly fur. 

I don't know if it would be overstepping or not, but I'd be happy to try some concepts for Bear? Burly, scruffy males are one of my favorites to play around with design wise.

not overstepping at all. I think a lot of good ideas come out of that kind of collaboration
Erin and I shorted his tail a bit from what it was in my last uploaded concept (its not bitten off, just shorter). He also needs scars from sabre fights!
