I think it looks awesome because the wolves' eyes are the only parts of their body with black clearly visible outlines.
Their winter coats looks very good and due to missing black outlines the wolves seem to melt into the snowy background.

This is one of my favorite Kipling quotes. I've kept it as my signature for a number of years now. Your art is a fantastic representation of each Kipling quote.
