Canine v Feline Face Anat Tut. by Daesiy Canine v Feline Face Anat Tut. by Daesiy
Part 1 --
Part 3--

UM, anyways I decided that I wanted to make another one of these canine vs feline tutorials since many people found the last one very helpful. :3 It's designed mostly to help artists who are used to either drawing canines or felines, but want to try the other. However, it can be used by anyone. XD

Remember--Nothing can replace drawing from life! These tutorials are just a starting place to point some stuff out. You may use the images in this tutorial for reference, however be warned that I make many mistakes while drawing too and it's a much better idea to reference from photos!

Also, I'm in no way an expert on this subject. I'm just a teenager who wanted to share some things I noticed about anatomy.

Hopefully my wording on the tutorial is understandable. I have a hard time explaining things sometimes. XDD

Art *Daesiy
hopefully it will actually post this time

Your art and this is extremly helpful! Thank you so much for this! :love: 

I always used to draw the feline's muzzle like a short canine's! So this helped a LOT! :heart:

I love the following caption: Do not make felines short-muzzled canines! WRONG!!!

Yes people, you can even make a bear like a fat canine, with a tiny muzzle. That is exactly what I did to a bear when I was little. It looks awful and still does, but my felines, and especially canine (particularly wolves) have gotten whole lot better. And years after, I find this tutorial and you should of seen my face when I read - Now this is where people do the "most" mistakes!

I was like - "I kno' right?"

Well, if I follow this tutorial this awkward conversation may never happen to me again:
Me: *drawing*
Person: "hey, I like your drawing, that's a cute cat!"
Me: "thanks, but it's a wolf..... T-T"
All in all, thanks for the comparison!
StickeyTheWolf Featured By Owner Mar 12, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
That used to happen to me ;-;
DeadWolfgirl Featured By Owner Mar 14, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Does it still happen to you?
StickeyTheWolf Featured By Owner Mar 15, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Sometimes, but that's not my fault. ;-; My family just can't tell the difference.

Rinzekatze Featured By Owner Aug 28, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
This is some serious anatomy face off hahaha i love this because it's never easy to find this type of tutorials specially on wildlife art, if people follows this steps then everyone will understand in a better way how wolves and cougars are naturally made, I mean the general concept, because no animal can be equal to another, you've done a great job! ;)
