Twilight Wolves Among Characters Who Actually Look Cool


4) The Wolf Pack, The Twilight Saga: New Moon

The wolves each had to have human eyes but wolf features, and six separate distinct personalities -- not to mention fur that moved realistically. The animators at Tippett Studio went to a wolf sanctuary and spent time with the endangered wolves, getting to know them. They even created their own "Frankenwolf" out of pelts from already-dead wolves. The result was a set of digital creatures which arguably had more personality than any of the humans on the screen.

io9.com ran a piece yesterday that covers the top 10 Computer-Animated or Motion-Captured Characters Who Actually Look Cool.  And what do you know?  Our Twilight wolves ranked in at #4 on that list, we'll take it.  The rest of that list is below:
