The Keeper of Secrets by tarkheki The Keeper of Secrets by tarkheki
Heh.
So, it's not my FIRST anthro art, but it's my first submition of tyhe sort... the medicine/teacher, the reflective warrior, and the keeper of secrets.
My totem horizon.
And I love them all. :giggle:
:hug:

Thankies for guidin' me well! :hug:

I think the contrast came out a little TOO exaggerated, but I only think it's a plus seein' as how I always draw "light" . :D

Pencil on mayfair paper.

This is great art! I am a retired tattooist. I do however still work on friends and family when a good idea comes along with a willing victim. Would you mind if I ink this in skin if I can find someone willing?

Damn! Thats pretty slick for an anthro pic. It's not too often that you see the fur receive that much coloring detail. Your animal pics have always been great.

Some days ago I add to my favourites this picture, but I found the time to comment it only now, sorry^^;
I like very much this pic, I like your technique and the way you did the light reflection.
The characters are very cute adn well rendered, and even if I like wolves, my favourite is the little badger, his expression is fantastic =)
Cogratulations!

Wow.

Keep track of your pencil skills, I'm going to STALK them. And ABDUCT them.
I love the limited color palette in here - having everything be natural colors would downplay the mood.
And. The moonlight brings it all together. x3

They look solid, too. I give you kudoscookies. :)

This is awesome! I've never seen anything this style from you!
It is beautiful!

Im guessing the keeper of secrets is the Badger dude?
If so, he looks like hes the one spilling some nasty gossip about someone else, and the bear is laughing...the wolf is just like "these retards..."

:D I LOVE this,Tar!
Im keeping it ;) :fav:

Great work!
