The wolf isn't floating in the air now. I added a base paint for the rock and slowly added in some color.

I worked on a commission in between waiting for the paint to dry on the wolf. Right now it looks like a cat in a void of green. Sometimes works in progress can look really weird. The green I am placing down is the base coat for the grass that the cat is "hiding" in. Not the best image since it's an 11x14 that won't fit in the scanner.
