Tiegan Trotting - Maned Wolf by frisket17 Tiegan Trotting - Maned Wolf by frisket17
I wanted to be a bit of a jerk and create a 'literal' maned wolf. I dig maned wolves. The Louisville Zoo has a pack of'em of part of their endangered species specimens. They're really nifty animals, and extremely tall. Their body anatomy is not like any other canine out there -- really weird porportions :D

They're called a 'stilted fox' due to their colorations being similiar to a red fox, and of their abnormally long legs. I took a few artistic liberties. I'm aware that they are a South American (Brazilian type) animal. However, when looking for names, I found more Aztec (that being Mexican origin) names than Brazilian. So while she is Brazilian in origin, I wanted to play with the Aztec themes -- hence the necklace of turquoise and skull beads (traditional Aztec-like jewelry). In Aztecian (?), Tiegan means: "Little Princess in the Big Valley" .... frankly it was the -only- Aztec female name I could find.

This line art is actually fairly old (several weeks old to be exact) and just now laid colors on it to keep my mind off stress.
Anyway. Yay for mindless canine art :D
