Animal Studies- Dog

A few quick sketches I've drawn of my dog. I wanted to understand the movements a four legged animal makes as they walk, run or pounce. Drawing my dog from life really helped me to think carefully about the weight distribution on each limb, and consider which way the body leans as the animal moves into a new position. I'll be doing more animal studies over summer, as I hope it will help me with traditional animation.

  1. Lovely sketches Cat! :)
    Just a suggestion - might be worth numbering the images (or at least the pages) so that if anyone has any comments about a specific drawing, it makes it easier to see which one they are talking about...

    1. Thanks Jackie :) I'll make a note of it
