A image dedicated to my sweetheart as he was having a hard time with life.
This was on my other account [Dezieriah@dA - now inactive] as my final submission before I decided to make the switch to a new account [Mephyra@dA]. This image is a huge part of showing how much I've progressed as an artist over the years. Honestly, I'm extremely proud of this piece. Fur has always been my weakest point, and I'm proud to say that I've finally got a grip on it. Granted, I still have a lot to learn, but this is a major, and good, start. :]
