I promised to do a couple of studies of the wolf. As I know there are many canine artists on deviantart and back on my old account people asked me for a tutorial on how to draw their anatomy properly. So here it is (:
It ain't perfect, but I tried to put all my knowledge about their anatomy in it and tried to gather as much information as I could. Yet I wanted to keep it simple, no difficult terms etc. (;
I wanted to submit a large sheet containing everything but it would look unorganized. So I split the sheet up in 3 parts. This one is about:
* muscle structure
* body silhouette
If there are any mistakes in the spelling, note me and I will change it (I still am not a star in English xD ) P.S.
These sketch and study sheets are just the way I have learned to draw wolves. They are just guidelines, of course you don't have to draw them this way. Draw them as you like and use these as anatomical guidelines to help you understand their movement and shapes (; !
I do not own any of the reference pictures I used for drawing these, they are just studies for improvement and to help others out (;
I want to point out that I am NO EXPERT
in the field of wolf anatomy or canine anatomy or other animals their anatomy. I simply learned how to draw the basics and I still have to learn a whole lot myself. Thus these studies are NOT perfect. I want to point this out since many people ask me for advice when it comes to drawing canines or wolves and think I'm an expert. But I am not :,D
