Here is a preview of the underpainting of the latest addition to my wildlife series. I'm planning to take it to the same level of development as the second one shown here (called Alpha Wolf).
I just really, really love wolves! I got into painting them when I was commissioned by Tor Books to do some book covers that had wolves in them. To get reference material for the covers, Boris and I went to Lakota Wolf Preserve in New Jersey to shoot a whole bunch of pictures. Just being around those gorgeous creatures was such an amazing experience.
Anyway, I could go on all day about them, but I should just get back to work!
