Thank you Teresa and Under the Willow. I worked very hard on my drawings :3
Do the markings on the wolf mean anything specific?
Depending on the tribe, North American Native Americans used face paint to depict many things. I am most familiar with tribes in the Midwest (Lakota, Dakota)Natives would paint their faces when they went out for a hunt, went to war or for spiritual reasons after a vision. I used the color red on the face of my wolf drawing because red is often associated with war or battle. Since the wolf is a spiritual animal for the Native Americans and it is in a battle to save its own life I added the red paint to the face. I also added a blue paw print to the leg to represent having survived a battle. Natives would paint their horses with different symbols, the symbol would depend on if they were going to battle or had survived a battle. My wolf is a survivor but it is still fighting
