I honestly can't
be an ass and call this African canines, but technically
Hyenas aren't canines... so the only two that are here are the AWD and the Jackal...
A-HEM! Anyway... This was pretty much a challenge I got from a few people who asked to see me draw different 'canines'... and so I looked up a few and voila!
Mostly from Africa but I figured most people go with foxes, wolves, and coyotes so why not give the other lovelies some attention?
I've found a new love for Aardwolves ;__; they are f*cking amazing and cute! Probably smelly but omg, they are so sweet looking haha! Them and Striped hyenas. Those guys almost always look so easy going lol, just dozing along with that lazy look on their face. Big stubby muzzles and shaggy coats. CUTE-CUTE-CUTE!
Always loved AWDs and Spotted hyenas, not too much on about jackals (they're neat in the own right of course) but their ears are so damn fun to draw ;__;
Here's my thing... yeah... I tried to mix my semi-realism with my cartoony style... not sure how it worked out but eh, worth a shot. Sorry if proportions are off a bit, I did reference to get things as right as possible but I'm not a machine, there will be mistakes I am sure of it X3 EDIT: Because quite a few people have stated this: yes, I'm aware none of these are by genus canines... but for nomenclature's sake I put canine because one associates these animals more with canids than felids (which they are more related to).
Please stop saying 'they're not canines'... I know.
