"These past few months my mind has wandered to the darkest of places, concerned about what the future holds. But now those fears have been extinguished after I saw you for the first time.

Feeling your paws in mine for the first time fills my spirit with pride and joy. Emotions that I haven't felt in years and now I'm grateful to feel them again.

I hope I won't disappoint you and now as I hold you in my arms, I feel pride in knowing that you Dawn are my legacy."

Commission for Stormwolff, of his family trio of wolves! This one was so sweet to draw, I almost never get to paint baby animals. And such a wonderful idea too, thank you Stormwolff! The above short story was written by Storm just for this painting. =)

    The lighting tho. Wowzers!

    i really love this piece you made! my favorite part of it is the lighting, making it look like dawn (or dusk), which helps set what the piece means. i like how he sunlight creates an aura around them, shining through their ears. thank you for posting this, it made my day.

      Thank you! I didn't intend on this sort of lighting until the last minute, oddly enough. I was looking through sky references to try to find a nice sky I liked, and decided this would be a nice lighting scheme for the setting. Thanks so much for your comment!

    Those are hands, not paws. Opposable thumb = hand

      1) I didn't write the story, so I think your comment is a bit misdirected
      2) folks in the fandom refer to anthro animals' hands as paws all the time, it's a very tiny piece of subculture vernacular that you will likely see a lot more. We know they are hands, we enjoy calling them paws. ;)

    Family pictures! Good, we don't have enough of these. Also, the art is extremely well done. That pup is adorable. Consider yourself favorite.

      Thank you very much! I find myself wishing I could draw more little baby anthros after making this painting. ^^

        Please do, we'd love to see them, and the fandom is so bereft of them.

    Y U make such pretty?

    Awesome work, as usual. I love the lighting and emotional impact of this

      Haha, thank you so much! =D

    Definitely one of the most precious images I have seen in a while. Baby animals are just the best. Baby anthros? Just as adorable. Your art is always lovely, even if I'm mostly a silent lurker...oops.

    How did this only take 13 hours for such mastery haha

    What a lovely trio. And I'd have to assume, what a lovely sunrise.

    Right in the feels. So precious.
