My caption was:
Centuries ago, werewolves lived completely separate from human society, isolated and shrouded in mystery, but not considered a myth. Over time, they began to compete for territory and land, and soon werewolves were considered dangerous and a threat. As they began to be hunted, many hid amongst society in their human form and would sneak away to shift, beginning the lifestyle of the hybrid werewolf. Now that the hunt has ended and they’ve long been considered a myth, many have returned to living in packs, isolated from much of human society. Others favor the hybrid lifestyle, or are so used to a human life, could not transition back to living in the wild.

This reminds me of the time I went to the Underground Seattle Tour. I really wish I saw werewolves while I was there. I would have taken a picture of them before running away like a maniac. Green Link Approves Icon

awesome work!
Dracowhip Featured By Owner Sep 13, 2012  Professional Traditional Artist
COOL. Your caption was very interesting. Should become a story all by itself. I have created a story with werewolves and vampires that consider both species separated from humans,at the point that they born in human shape but when reach puberty they must be trained and guided to acquire their respective gifts. Something like that. Too much work overload have make me delay the finishing of this story,but I will publish it soon.
Once again great artwork!

Adaptable werewolves, those who've learned to live in the new urban environment. I suspect that werewolves, being true superpredators, would not be afraid to lurk in the dark places of the world, no matter how choked with humanity they might be...
Felizis Featured By Owner Sep 11, 2011
Your agument seems to be true....but think about it again. Even if they were superpredators...there are just millions of Humans...much more than werewolves. No matter what kind of superpredator you canīt ignore the mass of humans. It would be just too dangerous to risk an obvious fight. Itīs a clever way to hide and wait and survive....
Dust01 Featured By Owner Sep 11, 2011  Professional Writer
Actually, that's what I was trying to convey: i.e. to "lurk in the dark places." A werewolf, despite all its superhuman abilities (and even a pack of them) would still consider it madness to attack in broad daylight with no shelter. The sewers and alleys of the modern city are the new forest.

Absolutely amazing, my fav out of the calendar.
