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

The Aztec language is called Nahuatl. :] If you google that, you'll be sure to find many more names ^^

^_^'' this is slightly awkward, but could someone explain to me how you can take regular uncolored pictures with pen/pencil marks and color them like this on the computer? also, what do you use to color them like that? sorry, its just that im new at this and really want to learn how.. your artwork is beautiful, btw!

Scan them, and use a program such as photoshop to color them. You might want to use tablet to color as well. Hope this helps! ;)

Wow, I've definitely fallen in love with your art.

The way you draw fur, the coloring, the seeming fluidity of movement, the expression, and wow, the eyes. Perfect.

You are a fantastically talented artist, and I can't wait to see what else you put up! :D
