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.

These were brought to my attention by Aeresque#Artist. Courtesy of Scribd: Drawing the Human head, Drawing Dynamic Hands, Dynamic Figure Drawing
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.

If you think you know a good basic tutorial that would fit in here, feel free to contact me under Xenofur in IRC and I will add the link.

>>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.
