Mischief by moyan Mischief by moyan
"Keep peace with the lords of the jungle, the tiger, the panther, the bear;
And trouble not Hathi the Silent, and mock not the boar in his lair."


the Law for the Wolves by Rudyard Kipling.

this could be the most difficult rule for the wolves in general. i cannot imagine any 'big bad wolf' to be so demure and settled and does not stir up a hoo-har in the forest with the other 'lords'.
hence, this image that goes with the stanza depicts the wolf in his naughty moment running away after he had some fun disturbing whoever-is-the-big-shot. haha.

to see more traditional drawings of wolves in this series of artwork inspired by kipling's poem, please visit the folder in my gallery: "The Law for the Wolves"

original size is a4 and done by 0.3mm and 0.5mm 3B mechanical pencils, caran dache water soluble color pencils, and maxon white comic ink on drawing block.

for anyone who might be interested, see my work station and paraphernalia here:



reference photo by ~staffdancer:



this is the one of the best taxidermist work i've seen anywhere.

by #dALinkSystem, i recommend color pencil artwork by ~khiton, "Wolf Pup":



to follow up with the 'wolf-cuteness' trend, this one really fits the bill. very cool color pencil techniques as well! :D

Well, the wolf is my totem and I do tend to get into mischief now and again, so I think it is not that unbelievable. =)

Beautiful! It looks like one of the red wolves that live on Canada's north Pacific coast.

thank you. :)
i have to put the reference photo in my artist's comment. you know, sometimes, when i didn't do so because of negligence or i lost the link to the reference, there are scores of people coming after me demanding i must tell the source of my reference. sometimes it sounded like not including credit to a reference photo is almost a crime. so, i better do. ^^;

No, i meant that you put the actual photo in your comments sections. I only put a link to a page where you could find it, so only people who are beig really judgemental can see the comparisson. But your so good that when you put the next to each other the differences are what makes it good (for example different coloured fur :))

Wow! I wish I could draw this good! I've almost finished a drawing called My Fantasy Realm. It is the pinnacle of my drawing skill so far. Its showcasing all of the things I've learned over the past year. Its nowhere near as good as this, but if you want to look it should be up in a little while!
