Arven's Basic Tutorial To CANINES by ARVEN92 Arven's Basic Tutorial To CANINES by ARVEN92
GIGANTIC FILE! Download for best quality!

Soooo, I promised this to way too many people to just leave it hanging there O:

A complete tutorial on the basics of canines. Neato, huh? :D

Especially dedicated to :icontowathestallion45: who asked me <3

So, this tutorial explains roughly what is to know when drawing a wolf. Also, I added a section on how to "characterize" your wolf in order to turn it into a character. Aaand yep. Cheetah is silly.

Also, did you guess which character is which in the minigame? :) Feel free to leave a comment below and check the answers! :D

I really hope you enjoy this^^

really helpful tutorial ^^ by the way, I was showing your amazing work to my father and he asked me which font you used in this tutorial ^^' sorry for the weird question from my dad xD and, as long as you want to of course, but if you have the time and the patience I think it could be great if you could do a tutorial about shading depending on the time of the day and special light source such as fire in a cave, glowing stuff in a dark place, etc... of course, as I said, it's just a proposition :) I know you must have so much things to do with both of your comic, commissions and stuff for you, but one day, if you have nothing else to do and you're bored... why not xD sorry to bother you with all my stuffs ^^'

My, thank you so much! (And sorry for the late reply)
For the tutorial, I used Mighty Zeo 2.0 as a font :)

And thanks for the proposition too! That's not a bad idea at all, I'd love to make a tutorial like that :) If I ever do find the time, I'll be happy to make it :)

(Hopefully my coding works, dose not want to. XP) [i] Midnight: Wow, this is a really good tutorial! I used it, and I must say that this is one of the guides that when I finish it, I'm happy with how it looks! It was fairly easy (The body.... oh, how it's a pain no matter what I do.... -3-) and I really like your art style! Thank you for posting it, it really helped me with my art! [/i]

You don't know how helpful this is :'D
I hate paws though .__.

And the charaterizing part is one of the hardest things to do.
My characters look all the same, I haven't reached that stage yet where I'm able to draw normal wolves with proper anatomy.
Then I can start to make them more unique and different from each other.
You need to know the rules before you can break them, don't you x3
Thanks again for this tut!

Hoho my, I'm so happy you found this helpful :D

Yeah, I see what you mean :P Characterizing is quite tricky, but lots of fun at the same time, cause you get to unleash your fantasy XD

That's true though, you need to know the rules before you can break them XD

Not a problem!
