Redesigned 'fursona' by DiardiWolf
Redesigned 'fursona'

Some of my older watchers might remember that I used to have a "fursona" to represent me on which my ever so terrible current username is based (The "Diardi" part is comes from the Latin name for the Bornean Clouded leopard subspecies).
At the time I only remember making a fursona because a lot of my favorite artists on dA had one representing them too. Because I saw them everywhere, I thought it was kind of a mandatory thing to have as a mostly animal artist (I was young and impressionable lol). It never had any very deep meaning and it also never played part in any stories and such. I also never had any connection to it in any kind of way that went beyond a superficial way of representing me by mashing together all of the elements that I liked at the time.
It was a mix between a clouded leopard and a wolf which at the time were my favorite animals. It basically came down to looking like a wolf with vaguely clouded leopard markings and tail. It also always had a lot of stuff like bracelets, earrings, a hat, a scarf, and a small messenger bag for no reason other than me liking and/or wearing those.
I eventually started seeing it more as a representation of my naive and silly nature back then after I aged and developed more of a sense of critical thinking.

I ended up discarding my "fursona" I think nearly half a decade ago after I no longer even liked the term nor the idea of having one. Due to its unimportance it only occasionally made a cynical cameo in my sketches and silly doodles either as a rug, a pelt being worn, a hunting throphy on the wall, etc.
Even so, I couldn't ever completely discard it out of a sense of nostalgia because it was the first character I deliberately created with some intent behind it, and I also had it for quite a while.

so I tried redesigning it and make it more fitting to my current personality.
I basically stripped it of all bright colors and toned down whatever brighter natural markings were left. It's now predominatnly grey with rusty brown colors which match the wolf part that was supposed to be in there better. All of the excessive spots and markings were removed, and other than a few spots left and right it only has the marbled clouded leopard markings on its back starting behind the little wolfish neck ruff.
I tried blending both the cat and wolf parts a bit better too rather than just slapping a wolf tail on a big cat or a big cat tail on a wolf with some altered markings like I did in the past. Its eyes aren't black, but appear darker because they're nearly always narrowed and rather small and deep-set. They're actually both yellow.
I kept the scarf and earrings (both completely optional) because why not even though none of that makes sense on a creature without opposable thumbs. The color of the scarf changed accordingly as well.
Other than the marbled back markings (not pictured due to a lack of room), it mainly has European wolf and wildcat markings/colors because those animals are a bit more native to where I'm from.

The weird little drawing with the tongue sticking out was an attempt at creating a watermark design based on this character. It also includes my dA initials. the tongue might make it look silly, but it's supposed to be silly in a kind of passive-aggressive way due to the narrowed eyes which aren't really "smiling" along as well as the teeth which are both exposed.


Also, you can see all of my terrible sketch lines which I failed to remove completely.

Pick Your Poison by DiardiWolf
Pick Your Poison
A fairly simple drawing I started and finished in a few hours.

The flowers in between the teeth are wolfsbane, also  known as monkhood, which is poisonous. I added it because I found it fitting with the dog skull.
The other flowers are of soy beans and lupine, which are both very popular foodstuffs. Despite soy being found in virtually every kind of food out there, soy allergies are one of the most common ones on the face of the planet, which for those suffering from such an allergy and/or intolerance might as well make it a kind of poison. Hence the composition.
It makes finding edibles in stores not containing it some kind of Heroic Quest as well, involving loads and loads of label-reading, double-checking, and occasionally being sick from something not being labeled correctly. Going out for any kind of dinner also is often like playing Russian roulette with your health.
As a side-note, because many soy-derived fats, oils etc are processed so heavily they are (in theory) indistinguishable from other heavily processed animal/other plant fats and the likes, producers don't need to label the origin of the soy, which in 90% of all cases, both in the US and Europe, are derived from GMO crops. 

All of the flowers being purple was as coincidence as I didn't know their color until I looked them up. The blueberries are there because I was eating those and because I like blueberries. A lot.

Coffee trader guard by DiardiWolf
Coffee trader guard
Another one of my characters for a story. I liked this inked drawing enough to upload it seperately.

This fellow is a dog of the mastiff type, but not of any breed in particular. In the past, coffee was monopolized by the region it originated from and all the exported beans were roasted first to sterlize them so that nobody could plant their own coffee crops elsewhere and compete on the market. The first coffee plant seeds to be grown elsewhere were reportedly smuggled for this reason.
I based this character off of that. He was the leader of a band of mercenaries who swore their allegiance to whoever paid the most. They also acted as bodyguards for merchants with no questions asked as to what they traded as long as they had coin.
He eventually grew older and quit out of fear of being overthrown by the younger members of his group and left them before that could happen.
Despite being big, he's not a very efficient fighter when dealing with smaller and more agile foes and mainly uses his brute strenght, stamina and weight to beat his opponents.
This is him in his younger days as well. By the time he "retires", he's lost most of both ears, has more wrinkles and generally looks more battered.

Honeyed words II by DiardiWolf
Honeyed words II
This was actually started and finished in October 2014.
I wasn't satisfied at all with one of my previous drawings titled "honeyed words", but I did like the concept. So I drew it again, only this time a bit differently.
I also have no idea for original titles anymore, so I'm just recycling a previous one.

This is still what I like drawing best: ink drawings that make little sense but are full of little things and details in an almost horror vacui fashion.

The dog was supposed to be a character for a story of mine, but I threw in a lot of things based on dreams in there as well along with several concepts of previous drawings which I wanted to draw again.
I had this drawing and a pencase with me for nearly a full month so that I could work on it whenever I had a scrap of time. I think I emptied about two entire pigment liners while working on this.
I might draw more stuff like these in the future too.

I'm just a random caffeine-addicted, semi-nocturnal hobbyist located somewhere in Germania Inferior who prefers using traditional media and occasionally makes crafts. I sometimes upload photography, though it happens somewhere between rare and never lately.
Currently I don't have much time for any kind of art, so large projects are either out of the question entirely or take months to finish.
I'm not much that much of a commenter anymore either, and regularly forget about replying too.

I am fine with critiques on my work, though only on the most recent stuff or things that aren't in my scraps (which are there for a reason). So if you have any suggestions/advice, feel free to comment.

English is also not my first language (my fourth, officially speaking) and I actually hardly ever need it outside of the internet or when reading English novels, so typos or kind of weird sentence structures do happen even though I try to avoid them as much as I can.
