First, I want to state that this is amazing work! :D It looks exactly like the actual scene in the Balto Movie! I love how it looks like you took a screen shot of a television. I had to double take to make sure. lol.... The shading is very nice and even also. It also looks like the sun is going down a bit because of the background colors. It's very nice. The snow gives the picture the intensity it needs along with the character's expressions. I actually don't have anything negative to say about this. It's very beautiful, and I think you should keep drawing Balto art. You are very very good at it!! :) :iconbaltoplz:

That's beautiful! :) But... I thought Aniu was pure white, not gray and white...?

I... don't understand... she looks pure white in that screenshot, as she did in the movie. :shrug: Well, other than her lineart, and the area around her eyes, that is. But she's definitely not mostly gray with a white undercoat, like you have depicted her here. You can especially tell when her spirit is briefly depicted at the end of "Balto II: Wolf Quest", as she is clearly white there, and Balto, himself, even says in that same movie that he remembers she was "as white as snow."

Ah well, still a beautiful picture, regardless. :) I know there's debate on whether or not the white wolf in the first movie was the same white wolf (Aniu) that appeared in the sequel, anyway; I, personally, believe they are the same wolf, but I know there's no definite answer, either way. ^^

Wait, do you mean my shading? Is that the grey you mean? Because I drew her the exact way she is shown on the screenshot ^^;

No... you didn't. I'm sorry, but she is definitely not mostly gray with a white undercoat in those screenshots; her whole body is clearly shown as being all white, with the only gray being the color the artists used for her lineart (the lines that are used to outline the characters and set them apart from the background). Just because the lineart is gray doesn't mean her whole overcoat is gray. Look at those screenshots: do you honestly think her back, top of her head, tail, etc are all colored in gray? Because they're not, anyone should be able to tell, those areas are white; unlike your drawing (although again, it is beautiful), where you colored those areas gray. Like I said, the only gray on her is the area around the eyes; everything else is white, and I'm quite honestly confused why you can't see that... you must be seeing something that I can't see. :shrug:

You know what, though? It doesn't matter. If you want to believe she's gray & white, more power to ya. lol ^^ It's not that big a deal, and certainly not something that's worth getting worked up over. I just find it odd, quite honestly; you're the only person I've met, so far, who claims Aniu is anything other than a white wolf, as even her canon design is proven to be. But, as I said, I guess that's fine. I'm not gonna keep trying to convince you otherwise, and you can just believe what you want. Sorry I bothered you. ^^;

No, I coloured her completely white, I have no idea what this "grey overcoat" thing you are talking about unless you mean my shading. Here is the flat version:

Okay, the flat version looks great; the color is perfect, and there, she is clearly pure white. There, she does, in fact, look exactly like she does in the screenshot. Here, in the finished version... she clearly looks gray on the top parts of her body, and white on the bottom parts of her body; kinda like Balto's coloring, actually, although not as dark... The flat version looks very nice, though. :)

I'm sorry, I honestly don't know why you can't see it. Even if it's just the shading, I still wouldn't think it would make it look that dark. The shading should be lighter, I think, unless there's a tree or looming cliff or something directly above her that's casting a shadow over the top of her (which, I'm assuming there isn't). Here the shading is so dark, it really does look like you only colored her muzzle, neck/chest, belly, and legs white, while you colored her top part (head and back) gray; you know, like the common timber wolf markings? Or huskies? Gray overcoat, white undercoat? That's what it looks like, or at least that's how it appears on my screen... It's only in the flat version you linked me that she actually looks completely white.

But again, not a big deal, not something worth getting worked up over. As I said before, it's still a beautiful drawing. I'm sorry if I offended you.
