A fantastically detailed piece by the up and coming Ryan Wardlow. I absolutely love the savage look of this piece, the details in the mouth, just absolutely fantastic. I also love the shaggy look of his coat, the coat length by far the most realistic I have had done.
I am well aware that this not my typical reddish fur coloration, but apparently the artist is having some issues with his monitor and even when he attempted to do a recolor, the colors were way off, even more so the second time around. In the original, you will notice that the eyes are red. In his recolor, even though I told him they were supposed to be copper, they turned out 100% green and neither of us know why. So, due to technical difficulty, I let the issues go and did a minor recolor myself, changing the eyes with a color layer and burning the muzzle and chest.
Overall, despite the issues, I love this piece and am proud to finally have it in my gallery.
