Inside Sulfite the Sulphur Wolf.


Sulfite the Sulphur Wolf.

Let's all be honest, only chemists would really understand anything about sulphur so I won't spout on about it. All I really know is that Sulphur is a chemical element and it occurs naturally around volcanoes.


Background story:

Sulphur wolves have a bit of a short temper and won't hesitate to gang up on a traveller or merchant. They are found throughout the Valley of Fire but more prevalent in Volcano Alley. They are very territorial and usually live with their packs with a dominant matriarch.


Yellow isn't a colour I had ever used in one of my dolls before, so I decided to take the plunge and order some bright yellow fur. Once I received it, I was kind of stuck on what to do with it. Until I saw some sulphur crested cockatoos that usually hang around my area. If you're unfamiliar with these birds, they are pure white with a bright yellow crest on the heads, and I thought to myself, 'that's it, sulphur!' I decided to go with orange eyes for Sulfite as some sulphur is an orangey colour, I also decided to go with orange for the longer tufts on the back of his neck; a characterising of many of my dolls, representing the creatures life force. And once again the black eye tufts draw you into his eyes while the white highlights under his eyes break up the solid yellow colour.
