The Wolf and The Raven by EclipseSiren The Wolf and The Raven by EclipseSiren
Stories of the wolf and raven are common in Native American lore. They tell of their partnership in the wild. This is taken from the fact that wolves and ravens are often seen together in the wild.

Ravens will follow wolf packs waiting to feed after the hunt. Stories tell of times where the raven will even lead the wolf pack to a location where prey resides. In the end both will share a meal.

Ravens and wolves also have a lot in common in the way they live. Both are social animals, both have the ability to make a wide range of sounds which they use to communicate, both species are also very playful and at times have been seen playing together.

So, here they play.

One last note: I don't mind people using this as a reference, or even trying to copy it exactly, but please reference me as the original artist.

I'm sorry I hadn't seen your comment till now. I am answering your request posted about the wolf and raven picture, as to weather or not you could use it as a tattoo reference, from my new main account. That is perfectly fine by me. I appreciate that you asked beforehand and am honored by the thought :)

Thank you very much! I won't be getting it for another year or so because my artist lives in Germany. I'll be making a special trip there just for the tattoo :) I like it much better there cuz they use a topical numbing agent so big tats aren't a big deal. Once I get it, I'll post it and let you know if you want to see it?

nice nice. I love the detail in it. I'm currently working on a traditional art piece of a raven and a wolf. Those are my two favorite animals. I can't seem to get the lines right though. I'm glad you let ppl use this as a reference, lol without out it i would've pitched the drawing I'm working on away. Once i post it, i will reference u as the original artist, like u said above
