Red Dog Grove by KatieHofgard Red Dog Grove by KatieHofgard
[edit] I adjusted the contrast and uploaded a larger image with a smaller watermark. Man, what a little adjustment will do...

[edit 2] Alright, adjusted everything ever so slightly again. I promise I'm done messing with it, it just looked so bland to me! XD

I had to take a break from my job to meet a preexisting deadline for the Rare2010 calendar, and this is my piece! Rare2010 is a calendar of rare anthro animals, with particpating artists Alector Fencer, Ashalind, Balaa, Charreed, Heather Bruton, Mondeis, Nimrais, Qzurr, Sekhmet, Synnabar, Wolf Wind and myself. You can check out other work and more info here: [link]

My piece depicts Indian Wild Dog, also called Dholes. I couldn't resist that red fur color! =D

These Calendars are SOLD OUT!

I'm so jealous!!! My wolves are but lowly life forms compared to the beauty of your foxes.
Seriously though, I love the fur.

Oh, so cool! Denver zoo has no Dholes, but we have African Hunting Dogs, a HUGE pack. They run around and play constantly, it's great when all of them get excited and start "dog piling" XD

Oh god, hunting dogs are awesome to watch. Not near me, but in one of the zoo's here in Aus they also have a pack I saw once on holiday. They are so energetic, and of course me being the biased lover of massive ears and lanky body shapes they are just adorable XD
