Drawing Dogs

This is a digital prep sketch for a private commission I'm working on.
I must say, regardless of how good your understanding of human anatomy is, each new animal type that you have to draw comes with a new set of anatomical knowledge that you need to study up on.

Photo reference is obviously essential, but as soon as you need to deviate posture from the photo reference, and your knowledge of the relevant anatomy is not at least backed by a few hours study, you'll run into problems.
