    Help with Anubis

    Well, I'm a bit stuck on this drawing, I like how it's turning out, but I don't want to work on it further without figuring out some anatomical issues, or other.

    I think his right arm looks rather short (even if it's pointed backwards), because there is barely any variation in it's thickness.



    I'm not sure about it's foreshortened foot, but I can't really point out what's wrong with it. I like your use of colour though .

    Hey, It's looking nice, but I think changing your background color would help Your values. Also, it would allow You to put some of that color into the shadow areas on his body to make it more interesting and bring some warm/cool contrast.

    It doesn't cost You much to leave a comment in my sketchbook, and it can help me a lot.

    Thanks for the advice, I worked some more on the drawing and hopefully fixed some things. The foot still looks odd to me, as well as his legs. Could someone help me with that?

    I dare say so

    I go barefoot a lot, you pick up some things about feet, I highly recommend the practice to anyone having troubles with feet.



    If you look at toes, together, individually, you'll notice they're shaped to fit snugly against the toes next to them, they're very compact. And they're not very tall. The horizontal line is about where the end of the nail should be, the vertical lines are a rough estimate of all the bones/tendons/muscles going up into the foot, the slash from the big toe to the ankle actually marks one of the largest and most muscular parts of the top of the foot (over the rest of the toes is mainly tendons and bone and skin)

    ... [/more information about the foot than you probably really needed] But hey, if the paint-over doesn't help, something in there^ should ^^;

    The only thing i can see that REALLLY stands out, is the right arm is a bit short, if you lengthen it, i think the whole picture will come together quite nicely!

    Maybe angle the muzzle up a few degrees? looks a little droopy, though the ears are fantastic!
