Hey guys! Recently I've been trying to expand my resource material, and because I draw a lot of canines I sought out to get myself both a wolf's skull and a canine anatomy sculpture. The skull as shown below is actually a museum quality replica of a Dire Wolf's. After taking some human anatomy classes last year in both facial and body portraiture, I learned the importance and value in understanding the skull for drawing purposes. It's so fundamentally important for accurate and authentic human portraiture, so naturally, it's the same situation with any other creature you draw as well. Secondly I invested in getting myself a canine anatomy sculpture which just came in the mail the other day! All of the subcutaneous muscles are visible, which means these muscles are located directly under this skin. Drawing those complex poses and perspectives has just become 10x easier!
These are excellent desk resources for all canine artists! I wanted to share this with you guys, seeing
