Just an old abandoned commission that I ditched since it turned out to look way too much like the references I used for the angle. I am, however, not fond of how the head on the closest dog is... too late to fix but still, it bugs me.
I think this is excellent! You did a very good on the anatomy, especially the dog that is closest to us; you can tell that it is a dog and not a wolf. I wouldn't worry too much about references, references aren't cheating so much as a way to go about helping you in a drawing.
The forehead is a bit short going on the right side of the head (the dog's right), so I could have possibly extended it a bit more to the right giving him more of a brow. Here it kind of gives him a more 'cycloptic' look, heh, even though that could be blamed on the angle, looking at it now I see some ways I could have fixed this but eh, it's alright Too late now, but glad I noticed it. It'll help me to prepare for this angle again in the future
