You are the one who made this? Oo and all this time, I couldn't find the artist D: lol and everyone sees the wolf on my avatar and knows it's me XD But now I know where it came from! O_O *kneels before the art god *
I followed the advice that I got from a book on painting wildlife for the fur texture on this one. I started with a medium tone, and worked darks and lights over on top of that, with many layers.... And it was all done in acrylics.

Wow, excellent work on the texturing of the wolf. I feel the piece isn't as strong as it could be, since the wolf's figure sort of fades into ambiguity at the bottom of the piece. More definition near the bottom would have helped immensely. Still, I'm very impressed with the way you've handled the head. That alone deserves a +fav.
