"One day my gubra stood up, bit my eldest son and ran for the forest. That was of course the day Gahatenge called them back to the wild, and we haven't been able to recapture any of them - it seems the more docile they were, the more wild they are now."— Shehnarga, hunter
Gahatenge is the first illustration of an animal lord of my fantasy world Genius Loci (well, other than the burrmo princes Darous and Darem
, who technically aren't animal lords but were stolen by one and raised as his heirs).
I tried some new techniques here, like the bokeh background and foreground blur, which I saw recently from Ilya Kuvshinov (KR0NPR1NZ
) and liked it a lot. I think it's more suited for his artwork than mine, though; but maybe I'll give it another try.
