You know, I saw this at tumblr and I was blown away. I loved the original artwork, and I loved the fic that was written to it, and I absolutely adored this photo. The mask is gorgeous, the pose is so exact and the overall FEEL of it is just like in the original artwork. I love everything about this.
And also, it inspired me. I'm totally going as a version of a wolf for Halloween. I even bought a bat. It will not ever reach the badassness that is this image, but still, it might be fun.
Seriously, though. This is one of my alltime favourite images. Of ALL TIME. Considering I have around 40000 images just saved on my computer, that's probably saying a lot ... You've done such great work with this, and I'm thoroughly (how is that even spelled?) impressed.
