Spirit Wolf, Ever Howling by TwaRavenMotifs Spirit Wolf, Ever Howling by TwaRavenMotifs
From out of the deepest reaches of space, singing a song of the ancients, two great predator spirits give life to the stalking star-wolf of the Milky Way. Combining features of both bird and canine, its form seeks to inspire, its song the electromagnetic hum of astronomical bodies near and beyond. Along the trails of glistening stars in the sky, the winged wolf stalks and sings, moving as a picture of the stars and shepherding along the ever-shifting moon. Its eyes are always the brightest stars in the sky, for the star-wolf sees all, the ultimate predator of galaxies and solar systems. When it grows hungry, its mouth opens as a gaping black hole, and its fangs and claws tear apart the universe so that Creation remains in balance.

(A self-challenge to create something from a few effects and limited pieces of clipart. Clipart to make the wolf's frame is from the OpenClipArt Library, which allows use of their clipart for anything as per their policies: [link]

Hey Man ! It's a beautiful piece and it fits perfectly with my musical spirit :) I create music and I need a logo to officialize some of my stuff if needed. That eclipse suits my "Cephei" alias and I love it. If you want, can you message me about this one ? Cheers.

It reminds me of looking at the sky when it's partially cloudy. the clouds leave open spaces and those spaces take the shape of animals.

I love the placement of everything- a shining star for the eye and a moon in the belly area.
Creative!

Thank you very much for your comment.

Well, if there's a place for anything "Miscellaneous", I think that would do.

I never expected it made out of stars from the thumbnail image of it, I especially like the moon, the brightest of the stars acting as the eye, and the meteor shower (I presume) that acts as the grass for the wolf. This must have taken you some time to complete.
