So, uh, I guess I just decided to explore this side of tg for the first time.

This is something I may or may not finish. Approve?

Anthro's still stick to human anatomy and proportions, unless you really want to mod them up with digitigrade legs and other paraphernalia.

Damn, look at that tiny-ass head!

If by tiny ass head you mean, "Anatomically correct and proportioned properly" then yes.
No. 13136 ID: 09a2fd


I mean tiny-ass head. I don't understand how you can't see that.
No. 13137 ID: 840177

It is a bit tiny, specially on the guy on the right.
No. 13138 ID: 7acb8e

Actually, it's about right. The clothes make the man... er.. anthro. Here, take a gander at this picture I just googled

Look at that bitch on the right, her head is SUPER TINY.

Bulky angular clothes make the person look bigger than they should. I'll concede that the head is on the smallish side, but it's totally okay.

If you're going for humanish, lengthen those midget legs, if you're going for animalish, then really I guess they would be fine.

I've always secretly wished more anthros would have different shoes... something less human.

I think it's just a smidgeon too small. Here's what I think looks right. The one on the left seems ok to me.
No. 13140 ID: 09a2fd


Eh, the think the left is still too small, but the right is a definite improvement.
No. 13141 ID: 56df8d

I think you have to actually make an slight increase in 'furry' head size, because the structure of the head is actually very different, but it varies between artists I guess.
No. 13143 ID: 09a2fd


Exactly. If you try to make it the same size as a human head, it's going to look very awkward. But, yeah, as you said, people tend to have their own style. I'm not going to go out and say my style is very realistic either.

oh yeah, also, here's a thing about that thing you posted.
No. 13160 ID: 654514

Remember that everyone has their own approach, some people tend to exxagerate the fur size, and they lose features by blending them in the actual fur and not latching them properly on the skull structure.

This is to be expected when you are dealing with anthro's , you will have comic-book ish features.

Hey Fidchell. It's great to see how your coloring and lineart has improved (also noticable in the quest).

However, I would like to mention the figures you draw seem sometimes a little "stiff" or "wooden" and as a result seem not as lively as they could be.

I think this may have something to do with many of your drawings having either a full frontal view of the face or a 90 degree view of the face, regardless of the body, which makes the people seem to be "feeling uneasy".

This might be more of a "arragement" or a "composition" critique than a straight critique of your drawing, since you seem to know where to put your lines or colors (as we can all see).

Anyway, keep up the good work!
No. 13576 ID: 09a2fd


It's all thanks to you guys. :) I wouldn't have improved as much in such a short amount of time if it weren't for pointers I've been given along the way.

As for stiffness, do you mean I should do more pictures where the characters' look in a more 45 degree angle or something? I'm not sure I follow.
No. 13577 ID: 132b99

need full head rotations. start facing left and redraw the head every 5~10 degrees until it's looking right

indeed, and far left and far right look kinda different.
No. 13588 ID: 2992d1

"Stiffness" anon here.

Maybe it's just part of your style. Well, do you know the feeling, when you see a drawing and the objects and/or persons seem to "float"? As if they don't have weight. And as such, the arms and legs and the head seem more like part of a doll, instead of being organic.

I can't seem to express it properly, and as such, you should probably ignore what I say. :)

I hopefully do not sound unnecessarily negative or discouraging you in any way (that would be terrible!).
Thumbs up again for you gallery here and your quest.

How I draw gun?
No. 14062 ID: 1444d5

>How I draw gun?
With judicious photographic referencing.
Tips: ejection ports almost always face right (to eject cartridges away from the firer), the mode selector switch is positioned above the grip (where the thumb would be able to easily operate it), the stock should be tucked under the arm (or placed against the shoulder) of the same arm that holds the grip, and fingers should stay out of the trigger guard until you've already aimed and are about to fire.
No. 14063 ID: 09a2fd


BAH! Yeah, hardly used any reference for this if it wasn't already obvious. Hope I haven't offended any gun nuts here.
No. 14067 ID: e563b5

Gun looks fine to me, passable anyhow. But it's how her hands/body are interacting with the gun that seems 'off' here. She needs to be conforming more to the weapon. 'grasping' it... not merely palming it.
No. 14099 ID: c84373

It's also not resting in the same arm it is being held by.

And the running sprites animated.
No. 14231 ID: b85f8c

I think you should have the animal's spine flex a lot more during that animation- it looks rather stiff. Try looking at pictures/videos of cats running. Also having slightly uneven movement between the foreground and background legs would make it look better. It's currently rather difficult to even notice that the background legs are there.

The cloth detail and shading is quite good here, probably the best part of this picture I'd say. I'll also note that I respect just how much trouble goes into drawing a long muzzle with foreshortening (personally I would have added whiskers but I notice a lot of artists tend to drop them, especially for female characters.)

If I may, how exactly do you do you affect your fur patterning. I would guess the smudge tool on a high setting.
No. 15006 ID: 09a2fd


Thanks. :) The thing about the whiskers is that, you are correct, the lack of it somehow gives off a more "clean" and feminine look, so I just went with it in her design.

The fur detail was done simply by brush strokes with a tablet pen, but with a special brush preset under the "Other Dynamics" function that makes the opacity AND size different with pen pressure.
