Paw reference guide by Canyx Paw reference guide by Canyx
Download.
I made sure the images are high quality so that people can see more than just a mass of fur with claws sticking out the end. In fact, I made sure people can see every strand of fur between the toes if they choose to look. Okay maybe not. This was supposed to be 2X the current size, but my computer can't process something that huge. The images are still great though.
Nothing annoys me more than references that don't actually help, so I hope this collection of paw photos comes in handy for canine artists out there!

Black dog + sunlight = great overexposure shots.
The fur on his toes was cut recently so he has more traction, but that also helped in this case!

If you would like to see other external canine anatomy guides, let me know. My dog is trained to hold poses/not move if I tell him to, so getting good resource shots is just another excuse to give him praise and treats : )
