Tarinrul by skratek Tarinrul by skratek
This one is for :icondianae:'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 :D

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.

Wonderful... your work gets better and better. The thing I like the most is how you use the textures, everything you draw somehow feels like it can be touched, almost real.
