I need to sketch more open mouth expressions on animals. does anyone have tips or some different resources? I realize this is a slightly odd request, but out of all the aspects of a body, for some reason the mouth is the scariest for me. I want to branch out with expressions more and getting used to how the inside of a mouth looks would be useful. for the sake of current commissions, canine mouths are most relevant but I'm open to tips for all species.

I tend to you a lot of reference photos. I draw lots of canines, so they are my strongest point.
I suggest searching videos of dogs and wolves fighting, play fighting, growling and whatnot, and pausing when you find a position you like so you can draw it!
