The first thing I noticed when my doe skulls arrived were their beautiful sutures. We’ve been working with line and mark quality in my drawing class so it was really inspirational to see such elegant, natural lines
My current collection, or rather the majority of it. It’s been a little over a year since I started collecting, and I’ve enjoyed every minute of it!
I’m not as avid a collector as I was in the beginning, due to the fact that I don’t feel like I’m missing someone. The collection feels complete, and though I have a few other species and mutations I’d like to obtain, for the most part, I’m not actively on the hunt for new critters. For now, I’m enjoying the atmosphere this bunch has created in my home and utilizing them to furthur my understanding of nature and spirits.
Almost done setting up my room :)! All the coyotes live in here plus my collection of natural oddities. Now that I have the blanket fort, I’m going to convert my bed into a makeshift couch for visitors.
So I’ve been annoyingly excited for over a month about getting this guy. Totally worth all the sleepless nights XD!
I don’t even know what to say other than he’s freaking majestic! I never thought I’d obtain a white wolf, at least not within my first collecting year. But he’s wonderful, and fluffy, and fits in perfectly into my band of misfit wolves :3! His most unique feature is his blackened muzzle. Totally natural, and gives him the similar look as the arctic marble color mutation.
I’m unsure of what to name him. My first choice was Amarok/Amaroq, but the legacy behind that name is for an alpha, which I’m unsure if he’s going to live up to that rank. We’ll see in time. It’s only his first day here after all!
Collection growth from July of last year until February of this year (there’s about 5-6 pelts that have been added since then). I haven’t figured out a good way to photograph my full collection nicely without taking them outside, which I’m afraid to do because I live in an apartment complex D:! If I can, I’ll probably take them to a random open field and photograph them there sometime during the summer.
Phantom’s making his debut at the end of this month. Though he’s beautiful as a pelt, I wanted to add a few accessories to tone down the ‘dead animal’ factor. It took a while to find something that complemented him without overpowering his natural elegance.
