Wolf by mwford Wolf by mwford
A gift for a family member. This is the first time I've ever drawn a wolf, a very interesting animal!

This drawing was a lesson learned on several levels. Drawn on smooth bristol paper which provided greater control on detail yet was much harder to create large portions of color. In the future I would probably use illustration board and lay down darker colors with watercolors or acrylics before using color pencils, ah well, hindsight, blah, blah...

Thanks to :iconreixed: for allowing me to use one her excellent photos as reference!

11"x14" Bristol smooth with Prismacolors and a cheap box of RoseArt pencils just for color variety.

I always draw a little bit at a time and then maybe work on something else at the same time. That way you can get a fresh look at the drawing so you can more easily spot mistakes.

I'd love to use this for a book I'm writing. The image is really realistic and it makes the viewer think.
Lovely artwork xD
