Artwork Description

A Direwolf from the Game of Thrones world. These are some pretty fearsome beasts. You may or may not know that if you ever see a wolf with its tail between the legs like this it doesn't mean he's afraid, like a dog. With a wolf it means he's about to attack. So watch out!

Me and my mom were looking up pics of dire wolves becouse we saw a monsterquest on it and it was like what her and my aunt heather saw when they were teenagers. She about wet her pants while screaming " That's it!!!!"

Hi! Glad you like it. I'm afraid I don't own the rights to this image - you would have to contact Fantasy Flight Games here in the U.S. Thanks!

May I use this on a website to picture a Shrrg, a gigantic wolf species from the Inheritance Cycle books?

megaflow's picture

Sure! Feel free. Smile

May I link this for a novel? One of the characters transforms into a dire wolf like this and I would like people to understand what they look like in this form

Be my guest. Smile

Do you think I could use this as a skin for my labtop? Great pic.

Hello, and thanks! Well, I don't come up with the titles on these, so you can blame Fantasy Flight if you like. Smile But actually, I think the reason they said "Feral" is because each of the royal children of course raised their own Dire Wolves, and they were the focus of a lot of the cards in the set. So none of them were Feral - this is a dire wolf out in the wild, not raised with the kids.

I like the drawing very much. However, i question the title. The dire wolf was by definition feral. To call it a feral dire wolf is redundant.

Thanks, Tom! I liked doing this one a lot. Sorry I've been so not here the last few months... My attendance has been spotty lately, mostly due to being very busy! Especially so with Con season going on (I went to Dragon Con and GenCon recently). I'll try not to be a stranger!

Glad you liked it, Uwe! I'm doing a few oil paintings to sell (hopefully) at GenCon and Dragon*Con this summer. It is nice to be able to do them once in a while. I even love the way they smell!

Hell that would be a cool pet! Just think about walking down the road with this pet on your site, you never will have any problems anymore – lol –
Hehe – and about your “first love” oil painting (Bills comment) well, I maybe get one finished the next time between all this digital stuff – man it’s great to have all the mess on your cloth again Smile – but oh well I never could hold a deadline with oils Sad - so I just keep trying to get the look of my digital pieces right…

Hey, thanks, Terry! I'm glad you liked 'em.

megaflow's picture

Thanks Bill! I'm (sadly) starting to think of myself as a digital artist first these days, even though my main love is Oil painting...!

Really cool wolf Patrick, I'm enjoying these CCG pictures of yours! Smile

Thanks Natascha - when I started doing the Game of Thrones art (can it be over a year and a half ago??) I did a few Direwolf cards. I didn't really have the hang of doing wolves yet, and they weren't... really good. Smile So it was nice to have a chance to redeem myself!

That's a beautifully painted dire wolf. I had another card for the winter edition myself and faced the challenge of painting "Ghost" among other Characters on the same card. They are so much harder to paint then it looks like. And I wish I had seen this earlier Wink

Wow - favorite eh? Thanks! Sometimes I do things that start to look a little photoreal, and do my best to change them. I'm more interested in a colorful painted style (as I'm sure you've noticed) like my favorites: N.C. Wyeth, Steranko, Frazetta. Not that I'm that good! Smile

Now that is a wolf, the proportions of this particular one feels very real, especially for his face. Patrick, to date, my favourite wolf i have seen. Not too photorealistic (i get tired of those), non too exagerated Wink. 3 thumbs up!

megaflow's picture

Yeah, I'm all over the textures these days... :0 Even when something's smooth I'm scuffing it a little. Glad you like it - thanks!!

Art at its best.
