Wolfsong by jocarra Wolfsong by jocarra
A howling wolf, to be the cover of The Wolves of North America, a portfolio featuring the lupine artwork of ten other artists as well as information on Canis lupus.

This piece is actually quite experimental in nature: it marks the first prominent change in my fur-rendering technique initially described in my fur tutorial. The differences may be seen in the various work-in-progress images ( [link] [link] ) - instead of relying on opaque blocks and mass scribbling, I've done most of the work using soft airbrushing, followed by detailing (which involved rendering fur hair-by-hair). It also managed to drastically cut down the amount of time taken. I'm really quite pleased with it :3 A photo reference was used from one of my wolf calendars, as well as stock texture for the forest floor that was manipulated to match the rest of the background.

20. Adobe PhotoShop 7.0. ~4 hours.
