It is not always that a coyote can look so beautiful, this ia really INCREDIBLE!!! I live on a tiny Island and when I was young there were no such animal here as a coyote. Now they are everywhere; it is said that they came over on the ice floes from one of the neighboring provinces. I hear them at night, always so close and have seen a few of them but the lovliest was a young one chasing a butterfly in a field one day; it was an amazing sight to see. I know they are responsible for killing a lot of livestock and small animals here but I cannot help but admire their beauty; you have captured something really special in this guy ;)

You'll notice that coyote does have a more pointed and finer nose and bigger hears too.

Thank for watching and for all your kind comments.

do you add like a black back ground before adding the fur or something? how do you make the black back ground to that fur? and again what is the first color the you put to start of painting the fur? is it a layer thing?

just how do you select the color?

Glad to see that you can name the animal. Some people think its a wolf or a fox so obviously big lack of knowledge there.

Good for you!

Do you work off of a photo, or from your mind?
Reply

denismayerjr Featured By Owner Nov 19, 2009
There is no way i could do this realism out of my own mind, all based on photo references from my personal files.

thanks for your kind comment.
