Dog ear notes by ZabbyTabby Dog ear notes by ZabbyTabby
Ok so Ive been making little note things like this for myself to help me when drawing from memory, and i thought id share it :)

This is the first, ill be making one on paws, noses, eyes, etc. :D which one would you want next?

Im bad at explaining things and its sloppy but I hope it helps with the basic dog ear. But just know each dog breed/species has its own anatomy :)

PS IM NO EXPERT LOL!

Look guys if this helps you ill be very happy its meant to help people and me, but just to say something: "how-to-draw" tutorials and things are good for extra tips and stuff. But when it comes down to drawing something life-like or anatomically correct--Tutorials are U-S-E-L-E-S-S. If you really want to draw something liifelike, then use a reference--or even better, real life! Even a cartoonist will still need a reference to get anatomy right!! (wether they copy it strictly or just for help). Dont get me wrong, all artists should be able to draw from memory, or atleast SOMETHING from memory, but if you want to really improve its good to use references occasionally! It really helps you learn on your own and faster. Even though I draw alot of my poses, etc from memory I still use an occasional reference for things im unsure about! Using references or real life does something that tutorials cant--they bring your drawings to life! Just something to think about :)


hope you guys like! :D :D

One on noses:

What would you suggest for dogs that look like they have no ears?   Central Asian Shepherd Dog for example?

I didn't realize anyone still looked at this! lol.  Do they have no ears, or just battle crop?  You seem to know more about the breed than me so just curious :D

They have natural ears, but I believe its a battle crop, if not shorter.  I'd take a look at the breed, google image search works well.
