Internal Structures

Below I have drawn a dog skeleton that is of similar appearance to the Komondor as well as the female human skeleton. I found this really useful as it helped me learn the structure of a dog more so I should bring across the dog in my final portrait with this in mind. Also, I can see key similarities and differences between the two skeletons that I could bring forward into my portrait.

I then took my drawings into Photoshop and created silhouettes with them. I think this was really effective as the silhouettes help me focus more on proportions and outer shape and size rather than the detail for parts such as the ribs. I'm going to use this silhouettes in another way though. I will be taking parts of them and combining them together to start the hybridisation and then connecting them properly so that it doesn't look like some unnatural skeleton.
