Black Fantasy Wolf by merimask Black Fantasy Wolf by merimask
Just finished: another Fantasy Wolf mask. This one is all black with very dark gray makings and a frosted white muzzle.

The mask, like all my work, is made from top-quality 8 oz leather, hand carved and shaped with no molds or forms. Each is a one-of-a-kind original. The mask is painted with colorfast Liquitex acrylics and sealed with an acrylic clear coat, for durability. It will come with black organza ties for wearing and a suede leather tab for hanging. Signed and dated by the artist.

The texture and detail in this are outstanding! Im loving all the furry bits added into this! I can only imagine a wolf standing in the wind. And i love the curl on the ears. Great great job!!

Thanks! Yeah, all those curls add motion. Very dynamic (and hard to sculpt!).

Very pretty. This one sticks out to me, besides the other fantasy wolves you've made, if only because it has a sort of... I dunno, somber air about it. It might just be because I only just woke up, but hey! :D Beautifully done, as always.
