Oh...wow.

This really struck a chord with me today. They look an awful lot like two of my OCs, brothers, one of which is a shapeshifter who sometimes enjoys the form of a fox. And ... the one brother is forced to betray the fox by his kingdom, even though he doesn't want to; and later he holds his brother in a last apology before condemning him. So this ... well, it may be arrogant, but it almost feels like you drew it just for me because it fits them so well and the emotion is just so beautiful. <3 (And of course I hold no delusions that you actually did, you have never met me before.)

I love the nearly monochromatic color scheme and the grungey background. The shading and folds in the old man's clothing are lovely and the emotion in both faces feels so real. Love the hand, it's very natural. Same for that fox tail and the almost bony, almost sleek curve of the fox's back. And the man's hair is perfect, just the right blend of simplicity and detail. Loving the blood, it's not overdone at all and adds just that right punch. I can find nothing to critique; beautiful work.

Thanks for posting this and letting me have a moment with this piece of art. Which sounds weird, but yeah, it gives me a lot of feels. =P
