Cortez by Eskiworks

Finished this piece in one go last night! Maned wolves are interesting animals. They aren't even wolves, despite their name, and if you've ever seen one they're quite leggy and awkward for a canid! They have an amazing rust color that I find really appealing, and adorable huge ears. So I was really glad I got the chance to paint this anthro maned wolf, Cortez!

    This is so gorgeous. I love all the little details in the face and fur. Looks so soft! I wish I had been able to come to your livestream!

      Thankee! Aren't they cute? I have reference photos of them from my local zoo I've taken, they're so neat.

        Yeah, they're really cool-looking. ;w; I love how lanky they are. <3 I actually accidentally made my fursona look a lot like them because I just LOVE that aesthetic, aaa. And their faces are adorable. I think you captured that well here. :3
