Anundr Ref by Sammy-Harlan Anundr Ref by Sammy-Harlan
"He was the oldest of the lot of them, and so I thought it was suitable to call him Anundr. His features were aged by white fur, heavy eyes, and a wizened gaze. Still, he was more ferocious than half of the creatures at the Median, and by far the stubbornest. Apparently until only a few years ago, he refused to learn the human tongue, so his speech was a muddy mix of growls and words. I loved the way he said his name, Anundr. It was like a soft growl, but with an ancestral power behind it, like something from beyond this world."

Lol a ref with an intro quote :heart: ORIGINALITY POINTS PLS :stinkeye:

Notes on the design
:bulletgreen: His fur is very long at his belly, neck, mane, tail, and paws. The mane does still follow the 3-tiered layering shown here
:bulletgreen: The white areas are NOT markings, but are signs of age. Their location does not vary, but the pattern (if there is one) is not consistent.
:bulletgreen: Anundr is OLD so he's not going to be springing around like a giddy little school girl... not that a bear-wolf would do that anyway! :XD:
:bulletgreen: If he is being drawn at a younger age, his fur is more like the length of Bjorn's: and the white areas are not present
:bulletgreen: He has a big nose and big paws :meow:
:bulletgreen: Any other anatomy concerns can be found here:

Anyway, here is Sidhe and Bjorn's father, Anundr. Sam sort of named Anundr during their second reunion, the name meaning "Triumph of the Ancestor." He is old, even for bear-wolf standards :XD: HE LIVED BEYOND THE PRESET LIFESPAN :stare: He originally didn't have a name... none of the animals did, but Sam sort of gave them names to be able to tell the difference between them. :lol: He named Greleth because he thought the name sounded unpleasant :lmao: Sidhe and Bjorn were two of the few who had names prior to Sam's appearance. Who named them :stare: OMG WHO :faint:

Teehee, I know :meow:

Anundr is Sam's mount in a massive LotR style battle near the end of the book :meow: I dunno about you, but if I saw a woof THAT big with a screaming barbarian on its back, I'd pee myself and run for my life!!! :sprint:

Ahhh Anundr is so handsome :meow: I'm glad that his design resembles both Sidhe's and Bjorn's :la: Their mother is quite beautiful too, as she has the same blue eyes as Sidhe, but she is almost golden in color :wow: Idk if I'll ever draw her... she's dead by the time the story takes place :noes:

SO YAY NEW CHARACTER FOR PEOPLE TO DRAW :squee:
