Wolf Guidance by ArnaTornwolf Wolf Guidance by ArnaTornwolf
Because this was a request of my friend, some convenient things for drawing were added.
There was a simple mistake in one of motion frames.
Fixed it and upgraded to guidance from motion reference 03.

These were not made to use for animation at first.
So it was not smooth when animated.
Then, I reworked it to animation templates, I guess it works.
But, might be not enough frames...

Maybe need a supplementary explanation of eye colors?
Some people claimed that blue eyes are wrong.
Probably, they imagined vivid like sapphire.
Wolf's blue eye is not actually perfect blue.
When blue eyed pup was born, its color is light blue. And, it will turn to grayish gradually by aging.
So sometimes this color is called gray or blue gray.

I noticed you mentioned the blue eye color, but, I'd also like to bring up eye color. The blue, as you mentioned, isn't really blue as much as it is grey with a hint of blue. But, that's not considered eye color because all mammal eyes do that, as the eye color itself takes a bit of time to develop. In addition, wolves do not have brown eyes, in fact, brown eyes are highly uncommon. It would be more accurate to say that common eye color is yellow/gold, orange, and yellowish green. Silver and blue eyed wolves seen in photos are typically either photoshopped, or, the photo itself is taken in lighting that causes very light yellow eyes to look silver or blue due to shade and lighting angle, where as brown eyed wolves seen in photos are typically taken at a lighting angle or lower lighting, causing them to look much darker in color than they actually are.

hello, I try to understand your comment again. So answer again. Therefor So sorry about my English skill. About wolf's blue eyes, you are almost right. But  blue eye are called 'blue' though it is not fresh blue. About brown eyes, I believe it's so common. I refered  a lot of Materials. And, my local zoo has 4 wolves, but 3 of them have brown eyes.

The paws/legs and muzzle is what really gets me. I just can't figure out how to shape them, it's the slightest curve in the muzzle to make it look like a dog, and the paws... I just can't draw those types.
