critque my sketch?
«: January 09, 2008, 12:23:13 PM»
click to enlarge it because it's probably going to be shrunk.

ignore all the other doodles are it. i'm really only concerned about the one that's standing.

i'm absolutely terrible at the frontal view. even if i looked at a few tutorials, i still don't feel i have this right. somebody better at this perspective help?

One thing I see is something that you see a lot when people start out with people.
The legs seem to come from an angle from the torso. There should be a flat space, where the chest should be, since the legs come up from the shoulder blades.
Try these pictures http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/0/0a/Standing_jaguar.jpg
A jaguar, shows the chest well.
A wolf, in sort of the position you're looking for.
Here's a maned wolf, also sort of in the position you want. Maned wolfs are nice resources because they're thin and have spindly legs so you can really see what their structure looks like.

The front (left?) leg looks a tad bit too slender to me, and the head rather large. The ears look off to me, but I'm a big lover of extra-long animal ears. x3

But a very nice shot at a frontal view! <D

It looks very fantasy like. Not realistic or completely wolf but like you added some things. I pretty much fail at frontal view. xD (well, i can do the port 3/4 view)
I agree with the chest thing, but wolves actually do have very slender legs and shorter rounded ears (not dagger/knife point). Still, it looks nice to me.
