Finished illustration for SaWolf, of his Maned Wolf character Samael! I am so happy I got to paint this scene, it's so peaceful and was so much fun to render. Glowing sunset, sparkling sand, the sounds of the waves lapping the lonely beach, and not a soul (other than a curious lizard who wonders what Samael is reading) to interrupt a good book. I found myself pining for the ocean while painting, and wishing I could be in a place as private and peaceful as this getaway.
