A big thanks to photographer Neil Chapman and model Samii for the photo that I used as reference when painting the girl.
To my eye she looks like she feels safer with the wolf than whoevers in front of her
much like Daine in Tamora Pierces "Wild magic" - and that's a huge complement !
(Samii is actually my aunt!)
A girl-wolf-combination is always awesome, and I love the background <3
Oh, Anne, this is absolutely wonderful ! It made me think of the wolf animal spirit from Native Americans, especially with the paw tattoo on the girl's shoulder !
I'd be absolutely delighted if you went on with a series of such artworks
Happy New Year !
