Design Ideas for The Bad and Good Wolves

Life drawing is really fixing things for me, drawing gets more fluid.
Today I had a chance to sketch out some ideas I had for both of the wolves. These are the sheets of variations in shape and structure ( I left other aspects like surface texture, colouring out of consideration). The main references while creating these, were wolf anatomy, of course, and Native American carvings. Influence of their culture will be even better pronounced when we select particular designs and work on their better resolution.

Well, now its time to ask for your opinion. If you have any preference or comments over any of the wolves, drop a line :]

  1. 4 and 4 for me, too. The white number 1 totally looks like a lion.

  2. cheers! :] and the lion one to me looked like a fox :D so ... nothing near a wolf then .. "not work"

  3. Hi JJ

    I like 4 and 4 also but number 1 (Upper page) comes in a close second.

  4. I agree on the 4 and 4 combo :). Maybe a little play around would be cool, on the evil 4 a more raised spine or simply a curved down rear would make it look a tad more evil. And on the good 4, combining the puffed out chest of number 2 could give it a more heroic alpha male touch.

  5. thanks, this give me a great idea :]
    Thanks, Gabriel, some really cool tips!

  6. my issue with 'evil 4' as opposed to 'evil 1' is that while 'evil 4' has the best face, something about its shape says 'monster' or 'reptile' not 'wolf' - I'd suggest a hybrid between 1 and 4...

  7. yeah, it's really gonna go to further stages of desig, this feedback

  8. Hi JJ,
    Evil wolf 1 is suitably menacing, but I also like the head on Evil Wolf 4. I think you can also introduce more triangular forms for the bad wolf - possibly some spiky fur, or pronounced ears, claws and teeth.
    For the good wolf, I think you need to give a more noble appearance - maybe a little more graceful , as opposed to the brutish, primal ferocity of the bad wolf

  9. thank you Justin, I'll try and work these suggestions out and hopefully tuesday we can further discuss it ,
    Cheers! :]
