2009 Werewolf Calendar
~~~~~ Arctic werewolves live in significantly colder climates, often in the arctic circle. They spend more of their time in beast form than other werewolves, to make optimal use of their fur. They have thicker fur and bodies, and shorter ears. They can afford to be near or even in their homes this way because of the sparse population in the area.Order your copy of this wonderful collection of unique art from a diverse body of artists.

December in the 2009 Werewolf Calendar. I was going for a heavily minimalistic and cold feeling with this piece but hopefully it isn't boring as is. I hemmed and hawed about adding body jewelry/paint etc but decided it would ruin the minimalistic setting. For that matter, IF werewolves existed, those living so far north with scarce populations of other werewolves would have little need for tattoos or body jewelry. Secondly, Werewolves would likely identify each other by scent not unlike wolves and body jewelry might also cause fur matting, which would leak precious heat from the body and/or break camouflage in hunts. But my primary goal was for the viewer to first think it was a regular arctic wolf, but upon closer inspection realize the limb proportions were not right for that.
