    Critique on start of dog sketch needed please :)

    Please bear in mind from the reference picture that our dog Simba has uneven, dodgy looking ears, so comments on the ears not being even are well..unneeded

    But yeah, other comments/critique very much appreciated. It's hard to see the things you've done wrong or that look weird when you've been staring at it for an hour or so...

    I think it looks very good... better than I can draw.. I will have to see it filled in, as the drawing right now reminds me more doberman than shepherd... but that's not a bad thing as you are not done..and im not telling you to change it or anything

    It might be because I've just done the outline and haven't added his fluffyness I see what you mean though! A new crossbreed :P

    Check the size ratio of the ears to the muzzle. The muzzle looks a tiny bit long, but I am not certain on that.
    There is one thing that , though very small, makes a HUGE difference, and that's the angle of the eyes. Hold a pencil up to the image and run it from the left point of the eye (the tear duct area) to the right point of the eye. Is the pencil truly horizontal, angleing upward or angling downward? The dog in the photo has what I see as upward angling eyes, just very slightly . In the drawing, they look to angle downward. This can change the "feel" of the character tremedously. Certianly in human portraits it is absolutely paramount to have the eye angle right spot on.

    He does resemble a German-bred doberman in the nose a bit... but the ears are defiantly, unmistakably shepherd(: Keep up the good work!!

    You are an insanely good drawer! I wish I half your skills..
    But since you're looking for critique, something about the eyes seems maybe a little lower, or more squinted for some reason - probably because you're not done
    Eh, what do I know??
    Anyways, it looks really good so far. I look forward to seeing it finished
