The request I get the most often when I travel around the country is realistic animals and I have digitized numerous collections over the years. Wolves has been requested a lot lately so I decided after a lot of deliberation on which animal to do next I chose wolves. Instead of releasing a collection with 20 or so small designs I decided to do fewer designs but make them larger so that I could digitize even more detail into them. I created two different versions of most of the pieces of art; the first was a realistic version full of layers and shading. The second was a charcoal sketch style of it so you can see how beautiful the design is in one color. All of the large wolves actually have a layer of appliqué in it as the base. You won’t even notice it when the design is finished but it keeps the stitches from sinking into your fabric while minimizing stitches as well. The designs all started out as pencil sketches and it was up to the creative team and I to make them come to life. The designs all come in multiple sizes.
