Continuing with this story: While the brothers thrashed around, Wolf stood up to leave the room. He didn't get very far when he realized someone was blocking the doorway.
"Agh!" Wolf said in surprise "...Hello, Grandpa." He greeted, calming down. "What are you doing here?"
"I was reading until I heard a horrible racket." The old wolf responded. "What's happening?"
"Ahaha... well you see, we were just having a small game of 'who's the alpha', with Canis, Dad, and I..." Saying nothing, Ulfric stepped forward as Wolf moved to the side to let him in. Ulfric walked up to his two sons, causing then to stop, and look up at him.
"Why are you two fighting like a bunch of pups? Cease this scuffle! There's no need to fight over who's alpha."
"Why?" Canis replied
"We all know who the alpha is, and that's ME." The room went silent. Ulfric was nearing his seventies, was he seriously challenging his more able-bodied descendants? The three couldn't help but chuckle
"Grandpa," Wolf said, trying to keep a straight face "Won't it be a bit risky for you to wrestle so seriousl--" Wolf didn't get to finish his sentence, as he found himself falling to the ground.
"...Yo, what's with all the screaming and squealing?" Another voice said from outside. Another male wolf around Wolf's age rounded the doorway, horrified at the scene in front of him. He saw his grandfather holding his father, his uncle, and cousin in a giant headlock, the three helpless against his strength.
"Lupin...!" Wolf called "Help us... beat this tyrant!"
"D-don't you want a chance at being an alpha?" Wolf pleaded. Lupin looked at Lupus next, who had a defeated look in his eyes, along with a posture reflecting it.
"Lupin, if you don't come over here right now, and help us, you're grounded." Canis threatened. Lupin then looked at Ulfric, who said nothing, simply speaking to him with his eyes "Make the right choice, my son." He seemed to say.
Another moment of silence stretched before Lupin found his voice
"I'm a grown man, and I can make my own decisions, and that is to LIVE." With that, he laughed, leaving the four behind.
So I did a Mother's Day drawing, so I had to do one for Father's Day too. As a bonus, I even did a grandfather character. Yay! So while I've mentioned Wolf's uncle, Canis in Tough Love
, I haven't actually drawn him, so he gets his debut along with Ulfric, Wolf's grandfather. Expect Lupin to show up sometime too.
I think Ulfric looks too tall, despite my concept for him being a "badass grandpa" who aged rather well. I drew his face before thinking about how the rest of his body should look in respect to the other characters, so I think he either has the trio on their knees, forcing them down, or they're all lying on the floor or something. I also used Wolf's Project M
design's color palette for Ulfric and Canis.
So yeah, hope you all have a happy Father's Day. Make sure you give that father figure in your life some of your time and appreciation, and if you happen to be a father figure, just know that you are appreciated!
