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
