Interests

Drawing anthro/furry heads

Journal Entry: Sun Mar 8, 2015, 1:48 PM
I've been trying for a while to find tutorials or references or something focused on anthro/furry/animal face and jaw stuff.  Specifically, how things look/react when the jaw opens and closes.

I have this problem where I'm not that good with envisioning "soft" materials flexing/stretching, so when I imagine a jaw opening or closing, I end up with this image in my head that just doesn't work right - basically, instead of cheeks doing what they actually do, all I can see is them splitting in half to go along with the jaw.  This is only compounded with the longer muzzles of animal/anthro heads, plus the added flexibility/mobility of cheeks and lips in order to get different expressions with an open or semi-open mouth.

That said, anyone know of anything I can look at to get a better idea of how this all works? x3

Don't post random statements as a reply to other, unrelated threads.

Better yet, don't post random statements like that, there's no functional purpose to what you said.  There's no way I can respond to that without just being random myself.

Hey, you were very kind and courteous to me in IamAnthro when I popped in to socialize, I hope that you don't mind me watching you.... Courtesy and thoughtfulness is rare these days unfortunately.

No worries :meow:  It's just so much easier to be nice, ya know?  Being a jerk just makes me feel... well, like a jerk :giggle:
