Re: love at first bite, why we love werewolves

Very interesting to hear everyone else’s stories. :) 1. I don’t remember a specific age, but I’ve been fascinated with werewolves since I was a child. I think I discovered them primarily through reading myths and folktales, which probably explains my preference for some of the old school traits over...

All I can do is string some sketches together to make a .gif file, not sure how impressive the final result will be. :P If I do it I’ll make sure to share.

Re: A beautiful werewolf?

Hmm, I didn’t know that about the Underworld werewolves. I’ll have to pay more attention to their design next time I see it. Reminds me of the werewolves in Steve Vance’s book The Hyde Effect. They mostly just grew hair and fangs and more slender/muscular limbs, and different cultures supposedly saw...

Hmm, maybe when I’ve had more animation practice I can try a really painful looking face-popping transformation focusing on teeth.

Re: What have you always wanted to see in a transformation s

I wouldn’t mind seeing something that focuses more on anatomical accuracy. For example, the way that wolves have six incisor teeth and humans have four. I can’t think of a movie where the person had some kind of shifting or popping motion to make space in the skull and allow the extra teeth to grow ...

Re: A beautiful werewolf?

I enjoy seeing what different movies do to create their own werewolf look, but I would like to see more design variety. I think one of my biggest pet peeves is fur. It usually looks long and stringy, and is one uniform color. If they borrowed more of the look of real wolves they could bulk it up to ...

Re: Do You Ever Dream About Werewolves?

I think this one came from reading discussions here before going to bed last night. :D It was a time where werewolves had recently become public knowledge, and everyone had to decide what to do about this. I was known as a human werewolf sympathizer, or maybe some people even thought I was a werewol...

I wish I had a better answer to the topic’s question myself.

Re: Wolf Behavior vs. Human Behavior Vs. Werewolf Behavior?

if the bite only awakens something within then the nature of the person would greatly effect the responses to any given situation. This could make for some terrifying scenarios. It could work especially well if the mechanism of action for becoming a werewolf is a curse, falling back on the horror m...

Re: Wolf Behavior vs. Human Behavior Vs. Werewolf Behavior?

I often like to think of things in terms of how werewolves would be more likely to go undetected, as my favorite stories take place on modern times and familiar settings. For this, I imagine a werewolf with a more human mindset would make sense. Animal instincts would be present but not overwhelming...

Re: The Downsides to Lycanthropy

A disadvantage for me would be if becoming a werewolf altered my scent to be frightening to animals. I could never work as a vet tech again if every cat or dog I approached freaked out as soon as I came near. I did like the idea presented in the Teen Wolf series that you could maybe intimidate dogs ...

Reminds me of something I sometimes see in stories about aliens, where a person who is abducted and returned is left drunk or at least smelling like alcohol so that no one would believe him.

I like the idea of the kindred/familiars. If you are trying to hide your existence from the majority of society a small group like that would be useful as allies.

Re: The link between Werewolves and Vampires?

The werewolf bite was stolen from vampires by Hollywood. It made for a much more compelling story element since it had more potential for unwilling werewolves than, well, taking a human-skin belt and wearing it to turn into one. Going that route pretty much defines your werewolf as a villain rather...
