Art critique and advice; beginner artists are welcome to post here; includes an oekaki. (NO FLAMES)

Artists, read before posting!

Before you post your art to ask for critique, please read these tutorials. They explain the basic principles of drawing and figure drawing. Most posts where these basics are missing will never get a response, as people are quite frankly sick and bored of explaining over and over that you would have to pretty much learn how to draw first, before you could improve.

A fox bitch

Yes, I used Daz and Photoshop. I'm not trying to be Michelangelo, I'm trying to make something I can fap to. I only drew it because 3D pics are banned almost everywhere and because I wanted real feet with actual claws.

So is there any hope for any CONSTRUCTIVE criticism or am I wasting my time?

Thanks.

The head doesn't fit seamlessly with the body, there's a disconcerting division of styles. So, where did you trace the body from?

No.1473 - Link Quick Reply Reply Report 1473

Personally, i dont think there is anything with the head, however the right knee, leg looks a little odd with the white. there is no defanition where the knee ends or begins, but i do understand that it you are trying to give a 3d look, well, thats all i can think of, it looks great otherwise, happy drawing~!!

Critique of my latest WIP

this is a hard pose for me because of the foreshortening involved as well as the angle. I seem to be having trouble with the proportions mainly on the female...can anyone give me a hand with this?

No.481 - Link Quick Reply Reply Report 481

Why do you finish these up within such a short time of posting them here? It seems kind of useless.

The face on the chick is kind of bugging me, particularly the bump on the far side of her face. It looks like an absurdly bulging brow, which has very little place on a female character.

Them shoulders are pretty huge too.

Something I'm worried about is how the junk is the only portion you put much effort into. The breasts and the genitals are all polished up fairly well, but then everything else is just thrown on as an afterthought. I get the idea that you may find it arousing or you really don't care enough to work on anything else, but it looks really, really shoddy. Furries ain't gonna care, but artists will.
Try not to fall into the trap of only finishing what you want to finish as fap fodder and then losing interest in the rest of the image. In any case that you do it, it's kind of pointless to post for critique.

Brush up on the anatomy of the buttocks down to the toes. The torsos are acceptable, but the butt and thigh on the girl look really strange.

I guess the head could be slightly bigger or make the neck not as thick, though that's probably just my bias. Asides from that I can't find much wrong with it. If you're unhappy with the pose see if you can find a ref online of an animal in a similar pose and work off of that. If you're still unhappy with it practise drawing him in different poses to get a handle on how the character's body works and what you want the proportions to be like.

First TF

Studying for finals got so boring that I decided to spill my woes into some mature art.
I've never painted anything pornographic before, so I feel like i've crossed a pretty thick line.

This is a Dragon TF. It's got allot of crazy shit going on and it's very loose - about the point at which I'd show it around to some buddies and get feedback before polishing in. Unfortunately, showing this off to my circle of friends would yield some pretty shitty ramifications LOL.

Illustrating the action of a transformation proved to be extremely difficult, so I don't really know if that reads.

Please let me know what you think. Thanks.

Rant: Facial expressions

This isn't a request for critique, but rather a critique I have for artists (especially up-and-coming ones) that are making explicit art.

Please, please study facial expressions.

It annoys me so much when I see the generic 'amused' expression all over the place, especially during intense sexual/sensual moments. STOP IT!
It comes down to suspension of disbelief - If your subjects' facial expressions do not match what's happening in your scene, the suspension of disbelief is broken, and you lose the interest of your audience.

The most glaring example of this is in O-Face pictures. I can't tell you how many pictures I've seen on this site and others depicting an orgasm, where the characters look as though they've just been told a mildly amusing joke.

TL;DR study faces. Examples to follow.

<-- First example. Excellent.

Stop being an idiot. You don't need to be an artist to know how something should look, and he didn't say he wasn't, anyway. You strike me as a whiner if you think he's being a douche for presenting legitimate critique.

I'm surprised to see this thread still around. Although, I suppose /crit/ doesn't get too many submissions compared to the other boards :<

Don't get me wrong, I'm absolutely shit at drawing. I'm trying to get better, but fuck it's hard (heh. heh....). Still, pointing out stylistic elements that don't work well doesn't require a good artist. It just takes someone who's willing to look, and speak.

In related news, I've been watching a live streamer recently who does a really amazing job with faces, all the time. Her FA is Jailbird ( http://www.furaffinity.net/gallery/jailbird ). You guys should all go give her some love.

So it's my first time here and my first time at drawing adlut material.

Whilst I am not hugely satisfied with the piece it is only the first draft, the image's subject has encouraged me to stick it up on here and see what people think. So here I am.

Comments, complaints and constructive advice all welcome.

Thank you.

All right then, concrit (and also my first post on Fchan, woo). In my opinion this image is boring. Drawing is a visual language and your image always needs to tell some sort of story, even if it's just supposed to be spank fodder. Who is this character and why is she in this situation? Is she enjoying it or not? I can't figure out whether she's supposed to be cheerfully showing herself off to the viewer or struggling and squirming in humiliation, and that's a pretty important distinction.

I'd suggest thinking about the situation you want to convey and starting over with a new pose that is designed to show that story. Pic related is two possible approaches. #1 (unwilling) has the character struggling - note that with a 3/4 view you would be able to see some of the spreader bar and I've pulled the tail up over it to highlight its existence and add a bit more flavor. #2 (willing) is more like your still pose, but with body language to show that she's quite happy where she is and enjoying the looks she's getting.

Tl;dr: give your character a personality, the work will be a lot better.

I can see what you mean and I can already see the way in which your sketch conveys a lot more about the scene. Thanks very much for the advice and I'll give it a go.

Hey guys. I'm not traditionally a furry artist, and I'm not used to drawing women either (huge fucking faggot.) but I was recently commissioned by a close friend for a generic slinky dragonwolf bitch and in the spirit of the thing I figured this would be the best place to come for a pragmatic opinion, even though most of your are developmentally disabled knobs. And I say that with all the affection I can muster as a shallow, jaded dirtbag homosexual.

Also, I added a gimpy pseudohand so idiots can tell her tail isn't fucking suctioncupped to her spine. A decently-drawn limb will be inserted later.

No.1494 - Link Quick Reply Reply Report 1494

She needs just a little wider hip area or taller buttcheeks. She will still be slinky-esque, it's just that her hips are too thin currently and she has manbutt.

Women's cheeks are often either exaggerated length or widthwise, whereas men's are usually more round or even all about. Google Frank Frazetta and take a couple minutes to see how he draws backs and butts on his women. He had variation so don't just base it off one picture.

First Sexual Furry Attempt

I've drawn anthro's before an I even have my own fursona but I've never thought about trying to draw yiff or stuff simaler before. So this is my first attempt in drawing a sexual picture. Of course since one of my enjoyable sexual content is based on overly large dicks, monsters, bondage, and just submissive females so I drew a female spotted cat getting enter in by a tentical.
I'm sorry if this isn't allowed here but I did want critigue on my art being this is my first try. I think a shirt wasn't needed in my opinion..
