Sure I get yah. But I'm happy with the results. The pose is more fun/natural and I distilled what I think mutt should be down. But that's just my rendition of what I think and anthro mutt should look like, it's not the definitive one. I would like to see how others would approach it. In the bigger picture, I'm moving on to doing Sasquatch.
Thanks for the comment. Didja see the anthro whiptail?
