that is really a pleasing wolf Noora. I wish I could say what it is I like about it, but it just hits me the right way. (Wolves have to look "wolfy" -- that is, they have to look realistic without looking like dogs. It's a hard spot to hit. The old Schleich wolf that you used for comparison is a great example, for me, of hitting that spot. It just looks wolfy. That Schleich model, by the way, is the most diversely painted figure I think I've ever seen. Every version of it that I see is painted differently. Yours is painted right? It almost looks like a .... crap, I forgot the word for a completely unpainted Schleich model.)

I agree with everything in this post, Scott!
I know it's hard to explain but you did it perfectly.

There are not many wolf models I genuinely like, the old Schleich being one of them (don't own it though).. :)

Thank you Krista! There aren't many wolves I like either. Very few that I like a lot. Some of the vintage wolves look nice promising (like the Lineol), but I don't have any of them.

(I remembered the name of the unpainted models, Rohlings or Rohlinge.)
