Wolf 3 - Winter Wolf by DiamondDustTaxidermy Wolf 3 - Winter Wolf by DiamondDustTaxidermy
Disrespectful or immature comments regarding hunting, taxidermy, or the use of real animal parts will be ignored. This wolf was legally taken in Canada where wolves are not endangered.

My third wolf mount, a pedestal on a snowy rock base. The backing is pigskin suede with a gold braid, and the base is an artificial foam rock with a dusting of artificial snow and some pine cones.

Again, I had lots of issues with this since I'm still a beginner, but it's much better than my first and second wolves. I improved on quite a few things and after this mount know what I need to work on to make the next better. This one will be used as a showroom piece. Critique is still always appreciated.

I'm excited to tackle some deep snow now and see if I can get that to look realistic. This was my first experiment with the artificial snow.

It looks really good. And there's something life-like in her eyes, like she's still seeing everything around her :)

The nose and lips still look a little rough but overall your progress has been exceptional.
