Kinkou by scenceable Kinkou by scenceable
Kinkou is a ooak (one of a kind) fantasy wolf sculpture. She's made from polymer clay over a wire and foil armature, and painted in acrylics. She has a boy length of about 4.5 inches, and is about 6 inches tall to the top of her ears.

Kinkou was a trade with *mangakasan an was a lot of fun! I don't have much experience doing wolves or dogs so she was a fun challenge for me. I hope to do more wolves in the future!

The beads are polymer clay attached with mohair. I am currently closed for trades but may take more in the new year. If you are interested in trading keep an eye on my journal, I will announce there if I open them!

If you're interested in a commission, I have information on my website here: [link] sculptures start at $200.

If you are interested in following my sculpture work and seeing progress photos feel free to check out my facebook [link] or tumblr [link]

Thanks for looking!

Nice! I really like his fur. That tail looks almost curly, and the way you've got the, uhm, accessories to curl and hang still is wonderful. :meow: If you're up for a little feedback I would be happy to help out, but only if you want. :B

Thank you! And yes, feedback would be lovely! I don't want to keep making the same mistakes if I do tackle another wolf in the near future! :)

Sweet, so long as it's welcome! :) H'okay, so here's what I've noticed (with this one and the last you did). I'm seeing some trouble in the facial area.

[link] <--- That's a picture of a rottweiler looking in the same general direction as you have Kinkou facing on the left of the image. I picked a rottie because 1 I ADORE THIS BREED SO HARD and 2 they have a Very prominent forehead. D'ya see how there's a distinct L shape dip right there between the eyes, where the muzzle drops down? I've noticed that with yours, that dip is highly downplayed. [link] is a photo of wolves (clearly) and when comparing that side-view with the side-views seen in Kuolema you're also rather shallow in that dip (considering it's a demon-wolf with extra long features that's something to consider, especially as that dip looks rather shallow in Sikaltkatu's images). Still, I think you may take that shallowness to a bit of an extreme.

Now, for the sake of being fair, there are plenty of dogs who don't have a large dip. One prime example is my dog Mitch, a mountain cur - [link] (the brindle). His face is very shallow, especially when compared to my mother's dog (the tan and black in the background). Still, he has more of a dip than these two have so far!

Final note is muzzle angle - I think, from the eyes to the nose tip, you have it angled downwards a little bit. I think it looks that way because you have the dip so shallow and because you have their bottom jaw tapering up towards the nose. Even dainty fox faces [link] don't taper very much, and they certainly don't angle downwards. [link] That's a fox with a nearly flat forehead area, a lot like how these have turned out, and there's certainly some tapering from the muzzle tip back towards where it widens at the jaw. But still, very clearly there isn't a downwards angle to it. And honestly, I think that's caused by the ears - you see that fox's ears, how forward they are, following the nose? Kinkou's ears are positioned forward, but are a little too far back and low on the head to work, I think. They point higher than the face does in general, giving it a slanted appearance. That's compounded by the shallow nose dip, making the eyes seem to sit more on the forehead than they point forwards. You also may want to consider lifting the nose a touch - Kinkou's is directly on the front, while the foxxy pic I just linked to has it squarely in that Top Corner. That is, I believe, the basic nose position for all canines is up in the corner more than directly in front. The upper lip area seems a little short and rounded, on top of all of that, which would have a lot to do with the illusion of a downwards angle (especially when coupled with the nose).

Hopefully that was helpful! I really like your fur and I'm impressed with how quickly you picked up on the base anatomy of their rib-to-hip area. The feathering and claws are spectacular, especially on the back right foot with Kinkou, and the expressions you give their mouths is sublimely perfect. You even work in the ear-fluff on the inside and you seem really good at keeping everything proportionate and translating the basic eye shape. You've even got the skin/fur ripples right when it comes to layering them on the shoulder as she looks over her shoulder! It's really very nice over all. :meow:
