Uhm, well... I've been drawing a little more, but I haven't been able to produce anything really pretty. So I made you guys a tutorial. 8D
A lot of the time I see people mixing up features from canines and felines (usually they're too used to drawing one of them) So I made a list of facts in the hopes that it may be helpful to someone. I tried to do the most generic shapes of canine/ big cat types, so I went with a wolf and an African Leopard.
Just as a disclaimer, I am in no way an anatomy expert. I am not forcing this way of drawing on anyone. x3 The absolute best way to learn anatomy is to look up references and study life!!
Also, sorry it's so sketchy. I was too lazy to lineart all of this. Yugh... Plus, I think the construction lines are actually helpful to see in some cases.
If anything is unclear, just ask and I'd be happy to clarify. :3
