Cortez by KatieHofgard Cortez by KatieHofgard
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!

Work in progress shots can be found in my tumblr - eskiworks.tumblr.com/post/5818…

9 hours in photoshop with an Intuos 3 tablet

Maned Wolves kinda look like oversized foxes to me. But they are really neat looking. Great picture.

Gosh, I love your art style! The anatomy is flawless, the characters are so realistic, yet still holding a cute, cartoony feel to them, I just love everything about them! And this fella is just so cute and full of life!

one of my grandads friends adopted an orphan cub when they were in their twenties, it grew as a pet dog, but was very, very fat. it died from old age and the pelt is still there at my grandads mate :') they are very rare creatures!

Fantastic job with the pose. I love that the most about your work, they're always in such interesting poses.
I also love maned wolves, though I think it would help if we went back to/started calling them stilted foxes since it would solve all this canine confusion. Poor little vulpines they must get so confused. :XD:

Bubba-Loo Featured By Owner Aug 13, 2013
just a fun fact - they arent foxes nor wolves, they are the only left of the genus chyrsocyon! its not linked at any of the other canid genus
here we call it Guara or Lobo-guara (red "feathered" wolf) Aguara, Aguaraçu or even Borochi!

:iconelementalspirits:
ElementalSpirits Featured By Owner Aug 14, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
That's true, but I think it would still be less confusing if they were called stilted foxes instead of maned wolves since the branch they are closet to are false foxes.
..Or they could just call them something without fox or wolf in the name. :XD:
