Maned Wolf Portrait by Nambroth Maned Wolf Portrait by Nambroth
A small portrait of a Maned Wolf, as observed at the Denver Zoo.

Despite the name, maned wolves are not actually wolves, nor are they foxes (which they sort of look like). In fact, they are the only member of the genus Chrysocyon, and are not related to any other canids alive today. It is thought that they are perhaps the sole large land predator that survived the Pleistocene extinction. Either way, they are a very old species, and are really cool.

Acrylic paint on panel, 5" x 7"

You work is incredible. I love realistic animal paintings. I have always been fascinated by Maned Wolves since they're so prehistoric. You really are a very talented artist. Thanks for sharing your work!

Hey can you check out my artwork? It's not that great, I turned 13 in late February (as if my age should be an excuse for the poor quality!) Haha.
Thanks so much! :painter: :jedi:

Can i actually marry you? this is amazing! i can really see the beauty of the fox and you've really captured the pose well. it's white inner ears are so detailed and wonderfully shaded. the sahde of the eyes under the brow of it is wonderfully contrasting and well shaded as well as the lighting on the lower lid of the eye! i've never seen better texture on a canine nose before! and the background really highlights the whole thing so gorgeous! i love it in every single way!
