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?
Heheheh, I don't consider myself a true furry and I actually own my Photoshop license! Moreover, most of the illustrations I post I do in Flash, which I ALSO own a copy of! But I suppose me being a furry could be argued. I always say, I just like to draw girls with cat ears and tails. I don't pretend to be a cat-dude or anything.
I'm actually hoping they replace Whiptail since it got nuked. I don't like it much; it looks like a Hot Wheel, and in a bad way; one of the flimsy ones covered in chrome that broke in like a week you'd find at the bottom of a toy box. My current personal explanation is that it's Dutch's personal challenge to himself; if he can make Whiptail work, he can make anything work.
