Background story: The Red Wolf is a powerful Spirit which resides in Kalatha and guardian of Wunderkammer. No one has ever seen it but have felt the full effects of the being, many recall seeing a red shadow pass through the darkness, feeling a weight described as gravity.
The Red Wolf is somewhat like a phoenix, sacrificing itself to protect the land and reincarnating into the beast once more.
The creatures life force is represented through the black tufts on the back of its neck, once the tufts disappear, the wolf then reincarnates.
The Red Wolf is my most special and interesting creatures, he stemmed from and idea to encourage creative thought and connectivity with other artists. Originally a collection of purely visual sumi-e inspired illustrations that I hand painted to portray a story. I wanted to invite the reader to create their own interpretation of the story based on how they perceived it.
I decided to make the character into a physical form.
The Red Wolf has a resin face and paws that were cast from an original sculpture hand crafted by me. His body is made from a thick pile faux fur which was designed and sewn by me, with the black accents hand dyed. The Red Wolf has a wire armature inside making him fully poseable, his face was furred by hand and then painted in acrylic paints.
The Red Wolf is approximately 35x20cm head to tail.
