eerie01 - Animated Water coming to PD Howler

Note: The elevation map and coloring of this actually came from a picture of an eagle. You are literally flying through its neck  feathers and face. Puppy Ray make it look different, but this is how it came together. From an eagle.

Also keep an eye open on the Facebook group for Project Dogwaffle and other related groups like the Howlers, and especially native American tribes like Navajo, Cherokee, Apache, ... some in Spanish, especially when the tribes are close to Tex-Mex, and some in French, near Quebec and Canardian Cree, etc plenty and multiple groups, there's a lot of inspiring art, colors and more, if you're looking for dream catchers, tomahaks (perhaps as an inspiration for your next game dev and you need more weapons?), teepees, eagles, buffalos, and of course more howling wolves, inspiring landscapes, monument valleys, and beautiful people of all ages, there's a lot to be inspired by.

And our youtube channel of course at

Finally also keep checking Dan's site at - and please consider reading his animal fantasy books.

Speaking of howling Wolves, here's a cover of "Wolves" by Romy Wave:

hope it inspires.

The Dogwaffler of the Moment:  Frank Bonacquisti

It's always a pleasure to re-visit Frank. Especially if you're into the art of Eagles and native Americans, Indians/Cowboys stuff. 

Granted, it's an old page, but the art remains young at heart. Maybe it's time for a refresh?
