About the design
on February 29, 2012
I love wolfhounds, specifically Russian Wolfhounds. They are my muses in a lot of my works. This design features several borzois(russian wolfhounds) wrapped around the shape of a wolf, their heads and snouts coming together to form it between them. Above and in the middle of them is a citadel overlooking a small village, implying the lord of the village has sent out his hounds to hunt the wolf.
A lot of the intentional brushstroke detail has been lost as I shrunk it, so I am providing a link to see the image in its original, high-res format: http://s3.amazonaws.com/data.tumblr.com/tumblr_m06gxtYzrd1qiuqwvo1_1280.jpg?AWSAccessKeyId=AKIAJ6IHWSU3BX3X7X3Q&Expires=1330644208&Signature=%2FISiG635q5UISqn1mPp7E9U6Ncw%3D
