Wolf Anatomy - Part 2 by Autlaw Wolf Anatomy - Part 2 by Autlaw
TumblrYoutubeTwitterFacebookFlickr



This is part 2 of the tutorial I am making about the anatomy of the wolf (:
I tried to explain a couple of basic poses and less basic poses like the wolf standing on it's backlegs and jumping.

There are many more poses of course but I only included the most basic ones, so If anyone has requests on how to draw a certain pose, just tell me and I will gather all requests on an extra sheet with the poses explained on it (:

Part 3 of the tutorial will be about details like how to draw the head, teeth, ears, eyes etc.

Ps. If there are any mistakes in the text please tell me (I am not a star in English) xD


P.S.
:bulletblack: 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 (; !
:bulletblack: 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 (;
:bulletblack: 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 
 reference pictures I used for drawing these, they are just studies for improvement and to help others out (;

The paws are indeed hard to draw at times, I still have some trouble getting them right at times x3 Though some good references will help for sure !

If you need some help with finding good references, I used to learn a lot from how wolves look and how their features look from Monty Sloan's photographs (: You can find a lot of his photos on this site ! [link]
