GIANT CANINE ANATOMY TUTORIAL by photografever GIANT CANINE ANATOMY TUTORIAL by photografever
MWAH HA HA HA HA HA HA!
Here is my ma-hoo-sive tutorial that I have promised you, my dear watchers!

Now, I don't claim to know everything about anatomy- mostly I make it up as I go along! XD
But I hope that this covers the general anatomy- I wanted to pay particular attention to legs, because I know they can be the trickiest parts!

I have a seperate anatomy on drawing heads here: [link] but I might update that soon

Anyway, like it says, if you have any questions, just ask me! :)

I hope this helps!

All stock images used are from dkimages.com. The discover section is great for finding low res images just to help in terms of reference for anatomy!

Combined this with how I used to draw a wolf base to make my own style of drawing, but this was a main factor for my current wolf base, and I am actually posting my wolf WIP now.

I am sorry, but this is hard to comprehend, because my brains that 'fantastical'. If you could make another, using circles to indicate the chest and hips, that would help greatly. If you can't, well, I can deal with it.

Sorry if I bothered you at all :D

I know this is an old comment and the artist didn't reply, but would it help if I sketched up a skeleton for you? My canines aren't fabulous because I'm doing more of chibis now [too busy to do cgs] but I could take a few minutes out to sketch up something with a full structure like you asked.

This seems very useful. I hope many other people will agree with me that it is indeed, very useful, AND accurate as well

My response (thumbs up or thumbs down [5 in a row being the max and most useful, if none is there, it is neutral]):

I love how you present this tutorial and demonstrate things with actual photographs of canines doing different poses. There's not a lot of tutorials that will do that. It's very helpful~ This tutorial definitely deserves a :+fav: :D
