Synetai wolf leg by Alessio-Scalerandi Synetai wolf leg by Alessio-Scalerandi
Detailed project of the muscle structure of a digitigrade biped, in this case a wolf from my comic. The bone structure and some other things are visible here:

:w00t: Amazing detail!
It looks like something you'd find in an anatomical referance book.

I need ur help with wolf anatomy. Man, my wolves suck. This is just perfect. I see no faults here at all.

Holy shit.
This is incredible, and agreed; the foot is remarkably well done.

This is a beautiful study, and definitely a unique one as well. Cool, very cool. Lovely muscle. :)

I really like how you did the detailed work! It must took you a very long time to do something like this. I know it would for me :)

So a normal-shaped canine foot would be unable to support bipedal walking?
Alessio-Scalerandi Featured By Owner May 23, 2006   Traditional Artist
You can do a simple experiment to find the answer: try walking on the tip of feet. It is possible to walk that way, and with slightly stronger fingers and pads under them it would not hurt, but the balance would be really awful. I think longer/larger feet are necessary for balance...

I have nothing to add to this. I'm not so good at dog anatomy, but it looks almost perfect. :clap:
I've looked at your bone chart on your site: I suggest you to use a human-like pelvis, because I think it's the best solution for a prolonged bipedal stance. Apes and birds can have a bipedal stance, but birds have a very peculiar structure fit for landing, and apes can't stay on their feet too long because, if I recall correctly, their glutei aren't enough developed for it (or something like this, I can't remember correctly :confused: ).
As usual, you did an awesome work.
Alessio-Scalerandi Featured By Owner May 23, 2006   Traditional Artist
The pelvis will be quite human-like, there is just an extra part on the back, under the glutei. I'm gonna draw it better later. :) I think you may be right about apes, the glutei are exceptionally large in humans compared with other animals and they keep the legs straight. The glutei here are developed as much as human ones.
