wolf eye Tutorial: [link]

edit: I'm not totally sure if I should upload all poses I've already finished. 'Cause they belong to my book - so, what do you think? I'm sure one or two of you want to see them but it's still harmful to upload all...Mhm..

Hey people,

here - as promised - are the first basic poses of wolves. (Also usuable for other canines)
Actually, I've finished more than 70 poses but didn't want to upload them all at the same time in the same file. That would be a little bit too huge for some of you |D!
So, I started with the basics: lying and sitting

Sorry that it isn't that elaborated but these poses come under a chapter of one of my books I'm publishing and I am not allowed to upload the original pages (that goes without saying, hm..? my publisher forbid me to do it.) The book itself is much more detailled than here. It explains a lot more about anatomy and specifics parts than I can show here but anyway, I hope you like it!

:bulletred: I visited a lot of breeders and other scientific institutions in order to have the best references which exist: The real life! I had fun but it was also a lot of work. So, if you want to use any of these poses, please, credit me!

"Other pages of the "wolf-chapter" deal with internal anatomy (muscles, organs, senses, how they work together and how it looks like in motion/animation), ages (puppy, adolscent, adult etc.), fur, behaviour and a lot more. It also shows differences between species, many poses (lying, lying at the back, sleeping, playing, running, walking, sitting, standing, attacking and a lot more), expressions, examples of mistakes many beginners did/do and explains why they are wrong and shows a way to do it better, how to colour them in different styles (comical, realistic, ...), some topics about werewolves, etc."

If you're interested or have any wishes, let me know!

I cannot tell you how LONG I was looking for this thing. I spent several hours of frustration, annoyance, and my hope being repeatedly crushed just to find this thing.
But I love it so much!!!

I've always used DA for references so I finally decided to make an account. These are great notes for me to study from. Thanks

Excellent. I have a wolf carving I started years ago, decided to take another stab at it and realized I'd lost my original (only somewhat useful) references. And here you give me basic wolf anatomy and a look at a wolf sitting from several angles! Excellent. Woot. Yay. Seriously, I scrolled through a large number of google images, but couldn't get a cohesive idea of what a sitting wolf actually looks like as most people just put up or draw images from only one or two angles, max. And usually the same two (front and side) angles.

Thank you for posting this tutorial, hope your book's doing well!

Super handy I like all the different views. I want to try drawing less busts more bodies and this looks like it will be helpful.
