Drayok by Drayok Drayok by Drayok
I was working on pictures I owed people today and realized that it's been like over a year since I drew Drayok. For some reason that bothered me, since I think most of my watchers now have no idea who he is 0_0

Drayok is my OC from a very long time ago. Once upon a time, it was ok and acceptable to draw wolves, hell, even wolves with wings. But now DA shuns them and I haven't had motivation to draw him.


I never really talked about him, his personality. Drayok is actually quite the coward in that he will most likely run away from a fight. He's selfish, somewhat cruel, and doesn't have much respect or regard for anyone or anything.

Although my username is Drayok, he is not my fursona nor does he represent me. He's just my old old old character who I still very much love :heart:


P.S - thanks for the 20,000 watchers :)

I still like seeing wolves and such; most animals really :) It's always fun to see how different they can look because of so many people's styles..

I'm glad you're uploading stuff again. I love to look at wolves, the different anatomy and styles people give them is always interesting to see. I've never heard of people shunning them lol...

Holy shit, I went looking all around DeviantArt because I knew for certain that there used to be a white wolf with black wings and then the guy who drew him started making keys or something and I was like: 

"NO. THIS ACTUALLY HAPPENED, I KNOW FOR SURE-- I WILL PROVE IT TO MYSELF."

And whaddya know.

I found not only the character and the artist, but a comment from myself from like 5 years ago. 

Surreal.

Just because others do it a lot these days and some think that it is overdone and/or don't care for it doesn't mean that the idea can't be unique, worthwhile and relevant to you--do more art for yourself. I'd rather be appreciated very little or not at all for doing things that I appreciated for myself rather than be hugely popular in any art community for restricting myself. ;)
This is very cool, regardless. :D

PFFT DONT LISTEN TO THEM

and actually i think you'd probably receive less flak because you interestingly stylize n color him since i feel like most people have an issue with the same-silhouette scenedog everywhere.
not that i care that much. let people do whatever lol

Ah... I remember back in the day when it was ok to draw wolves~ :XD: Now even if you draw relatively normal looking non-wolf canines you're still accused of being a furry wolfabo sparkledog....

It's good to see Drayko again. =D

It's nice to see some artwork from you again ;>; I really like how simple but dynamic this is , something about the wings makes it rather pleasing like you can imagine him leaping backwards or the wings forcefully moving forward lifting him of ground C:

I noticed issues with wolves on DA. I think the problem is that too many people got the "wolf-bug" and started drawing them. Not gonna lie, some of my oldest characters in my novels are winged wolves, I've just got too many things from newer novels that I'm working on. Glad to see a new pic of Drayok, the only one I've really seen aside from your icon :D

Beautiful Drayok! I think it's so stupid that people get pissed about wolves, because I have always thought that they are fascinating, beautiful creatures. I don't care if they're popular, that has never affected the way I view them. I just really hate that people had to make such a big deal about their existence on DA.

I miss Twine, though. :c He was my favorite. Your whole Fokks species was awesome!
