These are very good!

I've never taken a art class outside of grade school so here goes...

I wouldn't worry too much about the snaring wolf drawing. Of course, with referencing or drawing from a model or whatever, draw the lines and forms you see not the lines and forms you know they are like in the 3-D world. Example: From the photo you'll see that the wrinkles on the far side of the muzzle appear straighter than those on the viewer's side. You see this effect even though you know the wrinkles on the muzzle curve symmetrically on the wolf's face.
Try emphasizing the black part of the lips on the lower jaw too.
Both of these are small adjustments. But other than that it's better than you think. :wink2:

Thank you very much!! =D I can see how emphasizing the black of the lower lip would help ^^ I like your suggestion of drawing what is actually there, not what I know is... that is osmething I do every time I draw anything, so I will work on *not* doing that!

Thanks very much!! I'll see if I can find that book, as well :)
