This drawing was inspired by my sister in laws native background. Native American full moon names were established by eastern and northern tribes. Moon names are are similar to the horoscope symbols as Taurus, Cancer or Libra. The Wolf Moon is for January. Said to be called the Wolf Moon because the wolves are out in the bright light this time of year – anxious and hot on the the trail for a feast to slake their hunger in the lean winter month.
As with all my drawing, i strive to add as much realism as possible. This drawing was interesting for me because i have never drawing like a moon. Im really happy with the texture and the look that the moon has. I was debating on whether to add a a black background behind the moon but i think it looks good with a blank background. Of course the wolf is the main focus and wanted the moon to compliment it with the rough textures and contrast. This drawing measures 11″x14″.
