DEV>Felines vs Canines tutorial - General morphology

Recommended Posts

I had this idea back in 2016 but never came to it. However, since I have had some issues with people calling my obviously feline species (siderians) wolves, I thought....where does that come from? Is that just a lack of knowledge about what really tells felines and canines apart? That becomes quite evident in some common mistakes that I see a lot in both felines and canines, but mostly felines. Felines seem to be harder to draw and canines come more naturally, so I think it is useful to compare them and show where they consistantly differ.

Since I draw nearly exclusively felines and some other carnivores (and because I'm a bionerd) I have studied carnivore anatomy in detail (even as part of my biology studies) and felt like sharing this knowledge now. Hopefully it helps people to draw more realistic and anatomically correct felines and canines. I have illustrated the features mostly with wild members of both families. Just enjoy these elegant, fascinating predators!

See here part two: Feline & Canine faces:

There are two more on the way!
- Feline & Canine phylogeny and anatomy: more about skulls, skeletons and muscles and how this is linked to phylogeny.
- Feline & Canine morphological details: in depth comparison of eyes, ears, paws, tails ect.

I've fixed most of the typos, language errors and inconsistancies in the drawings, but I may have overlooked something. If you spot a typo or anything, please let me know
