Need help on wolf furry
« on: August 03, 2005, 06:28:21 pm »
I was wondering how to draw the muzzle from a front view becuase all I can do is a muzzle from the side view on if the muzzle is pointed down. Also on eyes, I keep changing styles and don't like it, Im about to switch to yet another style and want to know: what is the best way to do eyes?

Muzzles from front view are difficult to get initially. It took me awhile, but I used plenty of reference pictures (like the one in your avatar, for instance) and copied the shapes I saw.

This thread should help.

I tried searching through my archives and I found a few picts that may help.

Pict 1

An older pick, but probably one of my only pictures with a wolf from dead on front view.  The femme wolf on the top right is the one I'm referring to.  As you can see, her muzzle is completely foreshortened.  The only way I can think of to describe how to draw it is to think of a cat's muzzle, only extend the distance lengthwise between the eyes and muzzle.  That way, it will give the feel of an extended muzzle.


Pict 2

Another oldie.  This one has a slight downward tilt to it.  It's actually quite similar to the above picture, but the nose has been pushed down a bit farther.  If you draw a wolf head in this pose, remember that only part of the bottom lip will show.

Pict 3

Almost completely downturned head.  The nose is down quite a bit, and barely any of the bottom lip shows.

I'm not sure how much this will help, but at least I tried.  The best advice I can give is to keep practicing and look at other artist's work if you get stuck.
