Yeah I feel like I wasn't able to completely nail it. Mine does more look like camouflage or patchwork, the shapes of the diffeent colors in the Tam in the inner part of the logo seem more rounded, selective and clean-cut?
There's also a subtle use of gradients which I completely ignored.

Also I feel the need to mention that I painted over an actual howling wolf photo, I found it on google but I don't know if it was stock art or not, so I'm not sure if I'm moving in the grey area here or if I did something illegal. Generally when the outcome differs enough from the original, there's no copyright issue at hand. I'm going to fiddle more with it maybe tomorrow or the upcomming days and try to make it fit more the inner style, unless someone else wants to do that :)

What if instead of going realistic you tried making them look simpler, flatter… Like the background mountains and trees. As they are now I find them a bit distracting.

The inner logo looks more selective and clean cut because I ignored a lot of info when I was making the shapes. Instead of trying to accurately get each color on the coat I tried to make them into as few distinct groups as possible. Then I used the gradient in each color shape to show the range of color change within that shape. Does that make any sense? Hope that helps you get the right look.
And for copyright i think youre fine.

I think most tams are a little bit leaner than actual wolves. Those two look a little bit chubs!

It does look great though! And you knocked it out so quickly!

I love your work, they are very well made BUT they look like wolves not like Tamaskans.

The chest is far too big, and there isn't enough tuck-up, legs look a bit short might be because the chest is too big though, the back is a bit too straight and the tail seems somewhat not bushy enough..

I'd also like them to lean a bit in more on the center part, and that the legs that lean isn't as stiff more soft like the ones on the old one that "cup" the center..

I'm gonna go out on a limb here and guess that Nino meant to type 'strong' rather than 'string'?
