Wow, I tought that you are from Finland. The landscape is so familiar-looking for me. Beautiful pictures.

Ms. Wilcomb, I have been viewing your art since 2000. I must say that you have improved alot over the years. May I say that without your art I probably would not be striving to be the best were-artist I can be! Thank you so much for your beautiful and inspiring work. You are truly an anthormorphic genius.

P.S. Also, if you do want to know, the first piece of your art I saw was of to wolves, a black and a white, grooming each other.

it looks so real like,your actually there but not. The wolf looks like its searching for something,or its hunting but isn't quite sure where or what it is.

but likewise your eye isn’t darting around, catching background bits or terrain which aren’t the main attraction. If you’re doing this because you’ve been taught to somewhere, or you’re one of the lucky ones who does this all by instinct because you just have a feel for “what looks good” it’s very well done. I wanted you to know that even those small things have not gone unnoticed or unappreciated in your work. Keep up the wonderful work! ~ A Wordy Whuffie

This is probably my favorite of all of your pieces, and I’ve roamed through the entire gallery from very early to current. A few words from one artist (although I cannot come near your style nor quality) which have not gone overlooked. Not only is this a stunning piece of artwork, masterfully executed with your medium (acrylic paints in this case) but you handled your sense of design very well. While your main subject is the wonderfully rendered arctic wolf anthro, you have effectively used the background and surrounding terrain to full effect. The sweep of the antlers at his feet draws the eye back to him, adding to the piece rather than taking away from it. It gives the painting depth by setting objects one in front of the other. To keep the painting from being too angular or dull to the eye, you utilized more than one shape to break up the design. Not only is there a circular pattern, but there is also a distinct set of triangles which also lead the eye to the subject, being formed by the background, his posture, and his spear. Another ‘triangle’ appears from his legs. All in all, it lends excellent mood, and eases the eye through the painting so nothing is missed,

Once I lost my faith in furries after seeing so many dull representations with nothing new and no inner meanings. After examining your gallery, I think I have refound the reason why people do anthropomorphics in the first place. They represent a way to explore and reveal the feelings and meanings we all carry inside. They bring along the anchient and sacred we have already lost. (Sorry about my language, if this doesn't make much sense - but I'm still thrilled).

Wow, i'm too stunned to write anything that makes sense.

What happened to Christy's website? Domain expired? I'll pay the fee.

Guest's picture

I love it. First thing I thought when I looked at this picture was wow this is great. Nice work.

Guest's picture

I have been looking at your work for some time. I have seen many Garou type forms of art, but I have come to a decision. You are the Wolf artist on the net. I would like everybody to know this. They should give you lots of repsect. You are very talented. I hope you keep creating such beautiful things.

I am breathless!!! Magnificent!!! Wonderful!

This is so beautiful and majestic, and your textures are just perfect... I -love- the way you draw anthros.

Guest's picture

This image leaves a strong impression - there's something very powerful in the stooping stare, and the man/animal physique works well, not to mention totally superb lighting and detail - extremely well done and impressive Smile

Nice work of the ancient tranfiguration techs to turn a man and a wolf into 1 amazing being.......this belongs in an art show for a very high price....keep it up.
