#005 Yellowstone Dogs – Wolves no. 12, 20, 21


Wolves are big, long legged and blocky compared to foxes. It helps me a lot to go back and forth between the three ‘Yellowstone Dogs.’ Years ago I realized if a drawing kept looking too much like an animal that was a similar species, but different, I could learn a lot by drawing both species. It helps me focus on the differences.

I just love these beautiful sketches, Elva! Each one has its own beauty---texture, motion. Keep 'em coming ; )!

Wonderful poses of these wolf sketches. And a great way to compare those four-legged 'dogs'

I love all of these sketches! The first one really captures the fierceness--and with such simple lines! I love the head-on shot too...

You are a fountain of good advice, Elva! Good for you for working on noticing the differences in these animals.

Elva, have you considered using a variety of pen nibs to get more variation in your lines?
