The main problem that emerges doing full body stuff I think is proportion. This is highlighted by the dog’s peanut head compared to body. Also the orientation of the body parts especially legs. For example: which direction is the knee pointing?
While doing these drawings I am really trying to picture the squash and stretch occurring especially around the eyes and cheeks like a rubber band being pulled at either end. Also I want to stay true to the underlying structure particularly the cranium and having the rubbery features wrap around this.
I am still having trouble with proportion of say a jaw to the head. I need to find an effective way to counter this. At the moment, I blur my eyes and try and picture the two shapes as a single object, draw a straight line from eyes and see how far above below nose sits and measure length of jaw/ nose/ ears in relation to head.
I still need to work on the way that the eyes stretch from bridge of nose to high on head. On my drawings the eyes sit a bit low and flat. I think the pupils need to point to the thing they’re looking at and bulge slightly.

I finally worked out how to put an animated gif in Blogger. The wolf's head is too small on all drawings and same problem with eyes too flat
