Similar Deviations

So many people have been asking me to make a feline tutorial, but since there are tons of different types of felines, I would have to make several tutorials to cover most of them. I decided to start with cheetahs, and I'll be doing tigers and lions at some point along with smaller cats. I am not doing every kind of cat, only cats that I'm used to drawing.

Anyway, I hope you find this helpful~ :meow:

Here's the Shading and Lighting part. I tried to make it as understandable as possible, so if you still have any questions ask and I'll try to answer as best as I can. :)

Here's the lining and coloring tutorial. I just thought that it would make more sense to do this one first. :XD:

In case you don't know, saturated means more colorful (bright hues) while non-saturated/desaturated means paler or grayer (dark/pale hues).

This is part 2 of the tutorial I am making about the anatomy of the wolf (:
I tried to explain a couple of basic poses and less basic poses like the wolf standing on it's backlegs and jumping.

There are many more poses of course but I only included the most basic ones, so If anyone has requests on how to draw a certain pose, just tell me and I will gather all requests on an extra sheet with the poses explained on it (:

Part 3 of the tutorial will be about details like how to draw the head, teeth, ears, eyes etc.

Ps. If there are any mistakes in the text please tell me (I am not a star in English) xD


P.S.
:bulletblack: These sketch and study sheets are just the way I have learned to draw wolves. They are just guidelines, of course you don't have to draw them this way. Draw them as you like and use these as anatomical guidelines to help you understand their movement and shapes (; !
:bulletblack: I do not own any of the reference pictures I used for drawing these, they are just studies for improvement and to help others out (;
:bulletblack: I want to point out that I am NO EXPERT in the field of wolf anatomy or canine anatomy or other animals their anatomy. I simply learned how to draw the basics and I still have to learn a whole lot myself. Thus these studies are NOT perfect. I want to point this out since many people ask me for advice when it comes to drawing canines or wolves and think I'm an expert. But I am not :,D

EDIT: Edited a bit of information. 

:wow: GOODNESS! Thank you kindly for the Daily Deviation on this :) I am glad it has been helpful! :D





The return of this beast after how many years of being offline? (Since 2012)

OKAY, so if any of my tutorials that were stored were every asked for more than anything -- it would be this one. 
I went through and edited a few things from this that were incorrect and added a few things as well, so I hope it is a bit more helpful now than it was back in 2011. 
To be honest, I stored it because a lot of what I wrote and drew out was not actually very good. The information was there but the drawing skills weren't. I did keep some of the older things (like the eyes and such) because regardless whether or not they're perfect they are still just basic information on how to achieve the right look. 

Regardless, while this tutorial is aimed to help build feline anatomy, I ask that you do not trace it or copy images from it directly. Referencing is one thing as it helps you learn by eyeballing. This is aimed to teach you how, so hopefully it will. If not, I apologize. 
** example I did eyeball the skeleton image from another one for use in this tutorial so, it's possible to eyeball things for reference and still get it basically correct :3 I wanted it to be as close to accurate as possible so... I studied closely O_O


It's HUGE but... it has a lot to it so... please don't be scared, haha!

It is based solely on FELINE ANATOMY and shows the 'how to's some feline artists may look for, and the 'uh-oh's of what many beginner feline artists make. I tried to make this as well rounded as possible without making it too extensive and wordy like all my other tutorials. 
It's sorted into sections with each one giving explanations on the individual parts of feline anatomy. I do have other tutorials on anatomy which can be found in my gallery in a folder labeled 'tutorials'. I didn't cover the overall body anatomy because I am sure there's a bunch of other tutorials out there. 
However, I did go over the areas most beginner cat artists get stuck on. 

Please forgive my typos, misprints, and all other assorted grammar 'whoopsies'. I am only human.... ^^;

Also, while most of the information within should be at least 90% accurate, these are the basics and not the only way to do these things. Every part of this is open to vast interpretation so... don't feel confined to do things my way, heh... 






PS: These tutorials contain some old art and so the watermarks will be different. However, I assure you I am SterlingRuinsFall337. You can look it up, haha! 
Oh, and here's a more in depth tutorial for feline paws -- Fancy Feline Feet (tutorial reload) by NinjaKato as I didn't cover it too much in these tutorials.



You are welcome to share this but please do not remove the watermarks to stake claim to any part of this tutorial.

 

Thank you for looking and I hope this helps!

This is the last part of my study/tutorial on wolf anatomy. This was a fun one to do because I like adding details (:

Again this is just the way I learned to draw wolves, it are all studies I did analyzing existing pictures and video's. It's not perfect and I still need to work a lot on getting the anatomy right myself as it is hard to apply it to drawings.

I hope the tutorials will give an insight in the basic anatomy of the wolf though. And remember that trying to draw these kind of sketches yourself will make you learn even faster ! (:

P.S.
:bulletblack: These sketch and study sheets are just the way I have learned to draw wolves. They are just guidelines, of course you don't have to draw them this way. Draw them as you like and use these as anatomical guidelines to help you understand their movement and shapes (; !

*Edit*

The dialogue has been changed to the original text.

Here’s the other part to the bubble tutorial. This is how I make my glowing speech bubbles for night scenes.
