Anatomy of a Wolf - A Tutorial by Junryou-na-Kokoro Anatomy of a Wolf - A Tutorial by Junryou-na-Kokoro
*huge sigh* Finally finished. This is a re-vamp of an older tutorial that I made in 2007 :pointr: [link]

I spent half the day on this. I researched all the anatomy, hand-drew (in pencil!) the drawings, and then compiled it all together in Photoshop. May I go to bed now? =,= lol

I hope y'all enjoy this and that it helps you!

SKETCH! PRACTICE! STUDY!

ffff I wish I had a zoo I could go to to sketch wolves *A*

I want to get better at drawing them, especially since my fursona is a wolf :iconuhuhuhuplz:

What do you think is the best alternative to this step in 'SPS?'  ;u;

Ah, well good alternatives are to sketch the animals that are around you. So if you or someone you know has a dog, you can sketch them! They have similar anatomy, so it'll help you get an idea.

Another way of going about this step is to sketch from photographs or from videos. Photographs help with getting the details down, such as fur or muscle structure. I like to find YouTube videos of animals in motion, and gesture draw from them to get an idea of the way they move.

Hope that helps! Best to you on your drawing quest. :D

Google images! :D Or search a video of wolves on youtube to get the best environment of the zoo as you can -since at the zoo you cannot freeze the wolves to draw them! Just don't pause the video or this will take away from the reason for drawing them in motion. Blind contours and speedy sketches where you barely look down at your paper will really be good practice!! Once you have a numerous amount of sketches, you can start to see improvement in your drawings where you've memorized body shapes and such. Be sure to try different positions, don't linger on one specific view or else you'll find yourself struggling to draw something other than (for example) a 3/4ths view! Hope I helped! :)
