Thank you! Unfortunately I don't have much time, and the time I do have to do critiques is sporadic. IF you ever have something in particular, please feel free to note me :)

Thank you Voidrae, I appreciate it :)

I am not talking down to anyone. I think only you are reading it that way. I presented objective information. I don't think Mearu would have "Accepted" the critique if she thought I was being unfair or rude.

we don't need a lecture on wolf anatomy

This critique is for Mearu's benefit, not yours...there is no "we".

Frankly, YOU are missing the point. Mearu put up a request for critiques, so I gave one. Whether or not the information I gave will directly alter this particular piece is not the point. A critique is used to help the artist improve. If Mearu can take the information I provided and use it in some way to improve upon future pieces, then I have done my job as a critiquer. Whether or not Mearu accepts the information I've provided is entirely up to her.

The tibetan wolf is a subspecies of grey wolf (Canis lupus chanco). The proportions work the same way, the foot (paw to ankle) is still much shorter than most artists depict and is at about the same height as the wrist.

Legginess has nothing to do with the proportions. Even maned wolves (not true wolves, but very "leggy" canids) have these same proportions [link] :)
