Sabretooth: Open Season #4, Cover. 2004. Oil on masonite, 16 x 24".

These photos must have been prior to my joining the gym. It doesn't look like the "ab roller" in the foreground is doing much for my midriff, either. But I know what you're really wondering: where did I get such great mouth reference for Wendigo? Well, I always use gapingmaws.com for all my open-mouth animal reference needs! I love the internet.

Wacky Reference Wednesdays No. 16 features another photo taken for this cover... still just as embarrassing.


  1. This has always been one of my favorite paintings of yours. Thanks for sharing that reference site, it's awesome! I'm going to end up using that one a lot!

  2. I love the Wendigo character! I bought the Spanish-language edition of "Mitos" is a masterpiece, congratulations and thanks!

  3. Embarrassing photo reference aside...that's a beautiful painting Paolo. Very nice.

  4. I just stumbled upon your page, I love your work! Beautiful detail. I will be sure to visit again. Thank you for the inspiration.

  5. Do I sense a hint of unnecessary self-consciousness, Paolo? Tsk-tsk.

  6. Thanks so much, everybody!

    Christina, it's more than a hint, but it's necessary.
