Dog Body Type Feature

Journal Entry: Sat Jun 18, 2016, 1:57 PM

This is a supplement to my Theoretical Dog Genetics guide Theoretical Dog GeneticsAs a kid I remember being confused by the logic of dog genetics presented in cartoons. When two dogs had puppies, the boys looked like the dad and the girls looked like the mom. I can only guess that this lack of originality was an attempt to cash in on the new character's resemblance to an older character that had already won people over, but where's the fun in that? Being the animal nerd that I am, I wanted a realistic guide to prevent such blandness.
How to use
Much of this has not yet been proven in studies with real dogs, so if you want to learn more about a real dog it is useful to research the specific breed or likely breeds that are in the dog's background.
Each locus is a spot which can hold two possible alleles out of any number present in the whole species. All together the alleles (genotype) give the final appearance (phenotype). To decide the appearance of offspring, give each parent a full list of genes to describe their appearance and "breed" them by randomly sele
. I am using thumbnails from dA so that artists will get the credit that would be harder to give taking pictures from other online sources. The goal is to educate anyone who is curious, as well as to provide artists with references that will improve the realism of their work.
I am still learning, and guessing the correct color can sometimes be difficult even with an ideal photo or the dog itself to examine. If you spot any mistakes let me know.
If you see your picture here and don't want it to be let me know and I'll take it down.
If you would like to contribute a picture for reference send me a link. Photographs need to be clear, in good lighting, and show enough of the dog to provide a good reference for markings.
I will be going back and adding to this whenever I find new references.

Critiques

by W-Lupus

OK, now that I have some time I’ll let you know what I thought with a proper critique. =) The spacing in the intro dream sequence seems ...


This is a very intriguing concept. The Spider takes from a single person to help many, but doesn’t even need to kill that person to do ...

I will try to offer critiques on a wide variety of things when I have time, but my main focus is likely to be prose.
