I'm not totally back because I had to undergo another surgery after I went to the Leipzig Trade fair and my work and studies take so much time. Because of this, I didn't find time enough to paint detailled pictures or to answer all of you at the same time, but I try to do so. I don't want that you have to wait for my replies for so long but please, don't get mad at me. I promise: I will answer, soon!
Back on topic: This here are the first pages of a tutorial I'm working whenever I find time to do so. I began with the basic steps of the anatomy(bones, muslces, organs of wolves and will end with the colouring, animation and different species/poses/expressions. I hope you'll like it and if you have any questions or wishes: Let me know ^^
Page 3 and 4 will appear, tomorrow.

I'm always looking to improve my anatomy, but there is one thing I struggle with, and that is how a canine would look in various poses (I tend to draw side views only). I know the obvious answer is to study the anatomy, but would you have any other suggestions?
Easily one of the best tutorials around about drawing wolves. Not just a few lines, "This is how you draw a woofie" by a 14 year old. You show us why the body looks the way it does by laying the bone structures on top of it, and also the wrong way including the wrong bone structure. Too bad this is normally not considered entry level stuff because the amount of information one has to learn can be overwhelming. And many people are too lazy! This is my favorite way of learning however, starting at the root level (with almost anything really), and making small steps at a time. Well done!!
These are so detailed. Really. These will definitely help me from now on, especially 'cause I've just learned a whole bunch of things about canines that I probably never would have known until I saw this. Thanks for the awesome tutorial!
