Wolf Anatomy - Part 3 by Autlaw Wolf Anatomy - Part 3 by Autlaw
TumblrYoutubeTwitterFacebookFlickr



Part 3 of the tutorial I am working on (: I decided to split up the third part into 2. The last one will be about details like the ears, nose, legs & paws, eyes etc (;


Oh and if there are any mistakes in the spelling just tell me and I will fix it right away !


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

Great tutorial, but a wolf's ears are only pulled back when it is snarling when it is fearful. An aggressive wolf will have its ears pointing forward in a gesture of dominance and confidence.

I have question about fur - I can draw a wolf that is showing aggression by snarling, raised tail, etc, but I would you to display it through more subtle means, like raising the hackles. If you would help met out (well, even more than you already have, much better at drawings wolves now) I would appreciate it! :)

Thank you for this! I have been struggling with wolf snarls and a couple of their face angles and this really explains what the anatomy looks like.

Incredibly helpful, even if you're still going for a simplistic cartoon-y style.

No problem :) The only thing that needs tweaking is this piece's use of "species" and "subspecies" interchangeably.
