Mr. Hankey was great fun to draw, but I must move onto something a bit more serious. Last week I received a request to do a tutorial on a particular character from a book called “Spice and Wolf”. I have never heard of this novel before, but after reading some background on it, I found that it is a very popular book that falls in the fantasy, romance, thriller genre. Anyway the story follows a twenty five year old guy named “Kraft Lawrence” who is a traveling peddler that is on a mission to make enough money to one day open his own shop where he can sell various goods for all to buy. The character that I was asked to draw is a pagan wolf deity girl, who also happens to be one of the main people that the book engulfs in. So, having said all that fun stuff, I will now show you "how to draw Holo from Spice and Wolf", step by step. She is from a land called Yoitsu, and she is a wolf harvest deity that promised some men that their town would have a full, bountiful wheat harvest. Now, the reason why she and Kraft run into each other is because she ran away from the town due to the people that no longer believed in her like all the townsmen used to. Although she looks like a young wolf girl, her real self is in the form of a humongous wolf that people fear. She can take the shape of any being she chooses, and because of this, she is a young girl with ears, and a long tail. Now that she has left the town, Holo wants to see what the world is like after all the years that has passed her by. One thing Holo is always doing, is grooming her tail. She does this because she takes pride in her wolf tail, it's almost a reminder of what she really is. Anyway, I think you will find this tutorial fun, and colorful. When you are done learning "how to draw Holo", you can have a blast coloring her in. That is one of the highlights to any finished drawing I do, the coloring. I will be back in a few with more drawing fun. Peace out and have an awesome sunny Saturday.
