Finished: Black Wolf

I spent the entire day yesterday working on the black wolf and finished it up last night. I'm not entirely pleased with this did not turn out like I had hoped. In hindsight, I feel I should've painted it on a linen surface rather than the slicker Gessobord panel because I believe the textures would've looked better on the linen textured surface. Also, I think I overworked the texture. Oh well, it was a learning experience. That's what I will chalk this one up to. Let me know your thoughts. On to the next one.

I LOVE him! The eyes have such a sparkle and intrigue, and the background really makes the wolf POP! I don't think it is overworked at all, it is perfect :) Jules
