Wolfiness


This is the first transition into wolf we get to see. I drew a silly half man half wolf just for fun....that's not how it will look. The way I picture it Byron is man AND wolf all the time and the only change that takes place is our perception of him. I am wondering about the nature of the moon and why it effects them. does it bring other powers or perceptions?

Ooh this is interesting, what do you mean by our perception of him changes? So there is no actual physical transformation or overt visual sign of a transformation but perhaps his manner changes and hence the way we view him... his body language, expressions, etc...? Love it...

Sort of. He will be a wolf and to us he changes but to him it's all the same thing two legs or four. He is just letting us see that side when he "goes there" perhaps like a floating object that rolls over we only see what's on the surface. The moon turns only one face to us the other is always a mystery. Still thinking about it.

Think of the moon as a yin/yan symbol: a singular emotional state divided between consciousness and subconsciousness. Sometimes the opposite halves seem similar when emotion is grounded, while other times the division is distinct showing the range of extreme emotional expression. The part we never see can only be perceived by contrasting what we know about the side facing us with what is unknown about the side facing away from us. Byron is both man and animal; but which is the side we see and which is the side we never see. As the moon wanes the division between how Byron appears and how he really is equalizes, at full moon the division is strong and his transformation dramatic. Is showing both man and wolf sharing the same space outside your artistic vision?
