Random Fact # 3

An opportunity to also write off another EDM Challenge - #44 Draw an animal.

My favourite animal of all time is the wolf. I have always felt drawn to them ever since childhood. I think they are a beautiful animal and often misunderstood. Native Americans see the wolf as a symbol of truth, loyalty, strength and knowledge and you can learn more about wolves at the International Wolf Center.

  3. I love this design. I agree that the wolf is a misunderstood animal. It really is a gentle, loyal creature and should be protected. Good news in WI, we introduced the wolf back in the 70's and they are flourishing now.

  14. Thanks, Maria....these ones are in my sketchbook but I wouldn't mind doing some in larger scale for framing. I have done A4 size sketches in the past and currently have a framed drawing of a Border Collie pup in my studio. :)

    Thanks, Teri and Lynn :)

  18. This really is a wonderful drawing, Serena - I'm really amazed at how much detail you managed to put in on such a small drawing - I'd love to see a bigger version. This one is already frameable, in my opinion.

  20. I love how you do fur! Hair and fur=nemesis for me. This is just a beautiful drawing and does the wolf justice. I feel the same way you do. They must be protected.
