William Grill’s Wolves

William Grill is an English Illustrator who recently released a book The Wolves of Currumpaw and his sketches are fascinating. William spent a week in New Mexico, where he sketched at a wolf sanctuary. The story is based on Lobo the Wolf and Thomas Seton seeking him out to kill him for a reward. View more of his sketches on the Guardian.

All of his sketches and final art is completed with colored pencils, and I love the quality of them.

At first drawings started off very loose and gestural, I forgot how quick you have to be to capture a figure as it moves. You can feel self-conscious drawing this way but there’s certain honesty to a drawing done in a few seconds
