Taming the Wolf Back Cover Painting Stages

I’m currently painting the back of the Taming the Wolf book cover. Here are stages one, four and eight. Only a few stages left to go, including the wolf and some details. The wolf may prove difficult as I am working from a number of photographs, some of which aren’t arctic (white) wolves. We’ll see!

I created this short video from the stills I captured throughout the painting process. I will also create a longer motion video of the entire process from drawing to final book cover. Song is ‘Easier’ by Grizzly Bear.

In these two stages, I worked on the bridge of the nose down to the mouth. This area has proven to be the most difficult. Still have some work to do.

In this stage I concentrated on the forehead and left eye area (right side of the painting). I’ll wait till the end to do the eye details as the eyes are the most important part of the painting.
