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.

And for those of you who want it a bit easier, we also have the whole thing as one neat rar with all three books in pdf form.

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.

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..

I'll post what I consider my two best drawings. I want to see If I can get any improvement specially in textures. As you see, I've tried some stuff, yet I want it to look realistic and I don't get it. Not that they're bad, they look kinda comic styled but is not what I'm looking for.

Also I would ask for any other crit concerning anatomy, lights or such.

Your answers are at the top of this board ^_^ Just a texture hint though, you shouldn't just paste it over the top of the surface, take into account the volume of the object you're putting it on.

Focus on the anatomy more before trying out textures.

There's much room for improvement, study muscle structure

well... I mean you can't really mess up flat colors. There's really nothing much to say about it.

Try shading?

No.1492 - Link Quick Reply Reply Report 1492

You can if you have a terrible color palette

You need to use less saturated colors. Some neutral toned background and not so much contrast between the colors on the character. It's pretty painful to look at right now.

Long time lurker, first time poster. I wanted to share what I did tonight and ask about work process. For the last three hours or so I spent my time drawing at Posemaniacs, studying Lynxes and sketching out a concept for redrawing a video game character as an anthro Lynx. I want to ask around, how do you approach a project, decide on line weight when inking and most importantly how to stay on a project. I have this debilitating perfectionism that tells me to restart every 30 minutes because something's not right, and its driving me crazy just to get this far.

The character is Vanessa Z. Schneider from P.N. 03 from the Gamecube that plays more like a SHUMP than a third person shooter.

>>1304 No need to be disagreeable, just pointing out that levels will fix the problem will probably be just as effective.

Anyway, four major things that jump out at me:

-Muscles. It looks like you've put some effort into studying them, but I can spot a few minor errors. Remember paying attention to muscle structure is extra important when you draw characters that are naked.
-You obviously at least know the basics (things like basic anatomy, construction, etc.) so I'm not sure why your linework is so shaky? You've already committed to drawing furry porn, you might as well be more confident about your lines.
-If you follow the midline down the torso, you will see that the genitals are off-center. Additionally, it seems like one leg is wider than the other.
-Never crop a drawing at a character's joint! It looks awkward and draws the eye right off the page. If you absolutely must crop a character, try to avoid doing it directly at a joint, especially a major one like the knee.

The ribcage extends beyond the pectorals, so make sure you don't start six-packing too high up the torso ;) Pay attention to the pose as well. If it doesn't feel comfortable to you, then it shouldn't be comfortable to the subject. Locking his hands behind his head would have been a more stable way to support his arms. Speaking of arms, don't over-fold them at acute angles, especially if the subject is muscled. Find a full length mirror and take pictures of yourself in these poses to help with natural poses.

With 99% of "criticism" being shit like this, it's no wonder that the number of producers of furry-related stuff decreases daily.

A tiny bit of shading is all you really honestly need, like with this first one. I'll put up a bit of a modified picture to give you an idea.

Besides that, it looks good.

If you don't exactly know the whole shading thing, there's some pretty cool tutorials floating around in the internet. There's also the way you can teach yourself, set something near a light source and just practice the shading. There's a bunch of different types of shading, but I prefer the one that I used in this picture.
