This one is for
's Gods, Goddesses and Mythology competition at [link]
I've been entering quite a few competitions lately - I figured it helps me to actually finish paintings from time to time. Every new painting brings up a ton of new problems and in the end I just realize how little I actually know and maybe I can't paint at all and maybe I should just pick up a shovel instead and start some real work.. How depressing.
A tarinrul is basically a shapeshifter that can change into a wild beast, but it can never be quite a true beast - or a real man.
Comments, suggestions, ideas, favs.. most welcome, as always
EDIT: as always I had to change a few things: shading on the shirt, a bit of color corrections and added a shadow on the background.
