this is a relief carved wolf with a woodburned detail and backround. based on the project by fred and elaine stenman in carving magizine. i liked it. drew my own wolf and did the picture.
the wolf is relief carved and part of the fur is woodburned the entire backround is woodburned then colored.

enjoy.
