I feel like the pieces that an artist especially enjoys have a certain immeasurable appeal, and that this one in particular, while perhaps not as elegant as some of your other work, exhibits a great deal more emotion than a lot of your other pieces.
Since you mentioned it originally, inquiring minds want to know: Was it popular at the cons?
I like it. It has a weird atmosphere to it. The roaring wolf is just amazing, the eerie coloring makes it look so cool. The sad dog is a interesting touch. What was your idea when you drew this picture if I may ask?
Ah, people are so single-minded. This should get far more attention than all those pin-up fox ladies. This has so much more raw emotion and meaning than those. I love the ferocity of the snarling head as well as the misery in the pose of the little figure. Beautiful mood. It conjures up the feel of a dingy backstreet after a fight beautifully. Great work!
Something about this just yanks on my heartstrings...
I guess my interpretation is that the puppy-child was hit/abused, (hence the mottled bruise about its eye), and the raging wolf on the right symbolizes how the child-puppy now views the abuser. In any case, the bruise clearly means more than "ow I ran into a door". The fire exploding from the wolf's mouth is the anger that caused the abuser to strike the puppy.
Something like that. I can't really put into words what I feel when I look at this picture... It is truly amazing.
