Wolf Drawing Part 2

I imagine the next number of posts will have you see the anatomy of a drawing or, at least, how I work my way through to the final construction. Inevitably there is a portion of the body that isn't quite right. Tracing paper allows me to do surgery, so to speak, as I can add or take away as the need arises. There is a lot wrong with this image: the back is too short, the legs aren't long enough, etc.

 Here you can see those corrections but now the head seems just a bit too large for my liking. So, inevitably, just to straighten out my head a bit, I started another completely different drawing. Sometimes it helps my eyes see more.
