I have done some more work on my wolves. I am thinking about basing now, and think I have to go with a greenish plant covered base. I may try water effects. I've found that the basing choice makes a huge difference in how a model is perceived, so getting the right base created is important. I will put up a tutorial on whatever I come up with. I wonder if the failures would be more interesting for people to see though.
I really like painting wolves. I may have to end up playing them.
