    Creature design WIP

    Hey everyone. Started this creature design today, and since I have little experience with non-humanoids, I'd like to know what I could do better.
    Cheers!

    nice cleanup this helps a lot

    okay, so what I'm noticing is that the anatomy is looking more like human proportions than animal proportions for the legs. The rear legs I imagine would be shorter to match the front legs in distance from the ground. I recommend finding some reference pictures of animals (like an alligator) and using those leg proportions to help you.

    Btw this guy has some really nice animal drawing tutorials:

    be sure to get some anatomy refs from lizards and such to see how nature has handled such problems
