The wolf mesh is about 17k polygons and there are four hair systems for a total of 60k hair primitives.
I used Maya for modeling, Shave and haircut for the fur and mental ray for rendering.
My goal was to have an animatable wolf model with fur keeping an eye to the render time per frame.
For an HD 720 rendering it needs about 10 minutes per frame.
I rendered the image in one single pass and there is no post work but some contrast enhancement in Photoshop and the compositing of the background image.
I had a great time working on this guy!
I hope you like it:)

Amazing! I thought it was a real photograph. I thought to myself, "I hope the photographer wasn't actually that close, cause that wolf looks like he is mad."
I'm amazed at what Maya can do! I am soooooo not at the point to be able to work with Maya, but eventually in college we will be working with it. If this is the kind of stuff I can do, WOW.
