Thanks everyone.
Yes this is my 1st ever Wolf :)
The brush is nothing special just a fairly big rigger, I am using it for the fur details as the Wolf has quite wiry fur.

Here is a quick up-date, so that is the basics done, just more refinement and details when this layer dries over night.

Hi Jason, watching this WIP for sure.
Great furring.
I'm the Gary (I think) David confuse you with, and your photos are better than mine too.

Painting Fun

Wow, that is just gorgeous work on the fur, and I love the blue background, really sets him off beautifully.....

03-07-2012, 01:13 PM
Looks like it's going to be a stunning piece.

03-07-2012, 01:54 PM
WOW! I just want to rub my hands in that fur! BEAUTIFUL Jason!!!!

Thanks everyone, yes I made the background towards the blue side as it's roughly the wolf's complimentary colour, so should make it pop.
Real glad you all like it so far

03-07-2012, 04:12 PM
Gosh it's just superb!!!
Jason, may I ask what camera you use? I always have such difficulty taking photos(and I know I'm not alone with this issue).
Yours are so incredibly sharp! Can you tell me which settings you use?
I use a digital camera, just trying a new one Olympus sz-10, cannot figue out the setting though....argh! Driving me bonkers!:o :lol:

03-07-2012, 05:22 PM
Jason .... this is looking superb... I can't wait to see the coup de grasse .... always worth opening one of your threads my friend... very much like christmas..

Stunning finish Jason! Your detail is always so amazing! But more important(to me anyway) is the way you use your colors, to portray shape and form.
Thanks so much for taking the time to answer my camera question, much appreciated!

03-08-2012, 10:59 AM
Beautiful finish! Wonderful fur and great, rich colors. :)
