Wolf Fur

Post by SolitaryHowl » Mon Sep 22, 2008 3:45 pm

I was wondering...does wolf fur 'flow' in a specific pattern for each wolf or does each wolves' fur 'flow' differently? And can someone provide a diagram on which way the fur 'flows'? I'm digitally colouring a picture that I made on wolves, you see, and I need to know.

Sorry if the question is confusing, and if need be, I'll clarify...I can't think of any other way to word it right now.

This diagram is from Drawing Wildlife by J.C. Amberlyn; copyright to that person. I do not own this diagram, and really shouldn't be distributing it >> I scanned it from a book. If you are looking for a good book on animal anatomy and fur patterns, etc, check this book out at your library or buy it online or in a store. There is more to it then just this diagram. Do not redistribute this image.

Wow, that image in the bottom-left is a good source for anybody looking to learn how to draw canines. Thanks for that, SD.

Do you mean; "Does their fur go backwards/forwards" .etc? :? Cause if you do,I think it goes backwards.

Great, thanks, that's just what I was looking for! Don't worry, I won't redistribute this image. I'll have to check that book out, thanks! :D

No, I don't mean that. I guess I should have been more specific. I meant, is there any pattern that wolf hair grows in or 'points in'.
