It's been way to long since I have posted anything here - It's actually been a while since I have painted anything worth posting. I miss hangin out with artists! I hope everyone is doing well, I've got a lot of catching up to do.

This wildlife is all AR - Crayon, oil, and knife. Thanks for checking it out!:D

Wow this is wonderful, the lighting highlighting the coat, the undulations in the snow, and the way the whole scene has come together.

Bloody hell!!!!!!!!! WOOOOOOOOOooooooohooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I want whatever that wolf is having!

Really fantastic job!!!!!!! Incredible color control. It all works very well indeed. And furthermore, in conclusion, I wish to go on record to say it really grabs me. . . right behind the eyeballs, in the region of the pineal gland. It's rather startling to have that happen. It's the whole package, but I think it is especially the color. The wolf glows from within. :eek::eek::eek::eek::eek: A memorable balance between your rich cools and your warms. Wow.

Thank you Mary Lou! :)

My laptop has been spontaneousely rebooting on me - so as I was making this painting I saved and exported images as I progressed. I figured I would post them as sort of a work in progress for anyone that is interested on the method I used. It's not very detailed but this was the painting at various stages...
