Default My lone wolf

Hey Guys, tell me what you think, I cut it from 1/4 birch ply - made the frame from trim and finished it off with sea foam green velvet type material for the backing.

Good cutting but the color of the wolf seems to blend into the background. Just an idea but more of a contrast might help it all stand out better. Thanks for sharing your work.

Quite interesting. Not too sure about the background. I agree it blends in too much with you main subject. I think a darker background or different color would make it stand out more. Maybe changing the frame to something more rustic would look good too. I do like the cutting itself.
