<FONT face="Georgia">Very nice wolf! I love doing wolf sculputures and have done one painting of a lying done wolf and find them very enjoyable. It is hard to keep them from looking like a "doggie" and you have accomplished that http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/smile.gif</FONT f>

Come see my work!!

Edith you are prolific if nothing else..lol
although you have a lot going for you besides that...this is a very nice start with wolves....the eyes are wolf eyes for sure.
it might be more interesting if it wasn't centered though...a bit of his shoulder on the left would make a better composition I think and maybe his foreleg coming across at the bottom as he sits and warns you away with his eyes....great job edith...post more.

I think that you have done a great job with the fur, the impression of texture is good.

My only comment would be along the same lines as Darrell, the pose, would prefer to see it with the wolf turned on the side more.

You certainly are keeping yourself busy.

Thanks for sharing

PS thanks for sending that 'article' to Darrell, it was great, and I'll be sharing it with all my colleagues at work when I get back.

I think you did a wonderful job here and I hope you don't mind my nitpick. http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/biggrin.gif:

His nose is what strikes my eyes everytime I look at your rendition. I don't think you want this as the center of attention. Most would rather appeal to his eyes which seem to recess into the background. If you made the eyes standout and recede the nose and mouth, it would give my eyes a nicer place to rest.
