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.

This is my first attempt of any kind of sketch using Photoshop,
So can people just recommend how I can fix it, what needs to be changed/added and any more appropriate brushes that are available etc. Thanks heaps, hopefully if I get the hang of it i might be able to contribute some proper and descent works D:

Congratulations, babby's first dog dick.
Now away you go, back to your playpen, while the grownups ponder REAL arting.

I asked for feedback and info on how to get started, Asshole.

Then don't post dog dick. It only colors you as a yet another dograpist.

Want crits and bits and delicious nits? Draw characters, you're judge by anatomy knowledge, and cocks have no anatomical value on the large scale.

Or quit drawing altogether, you're just going to further pollute the talent pool.

Read the Original Post.
I'm asking about how to get started, using Photoshop and brushes as an art medium.
I don't have issues with the anatomy of animals and humans, drawing on paper with pencil; again I'm asking for a guide in the right direction using a completely different medium. I'm sure you know the difference between using a traditional medium for art and a digital medium considering you seem to be so judgmental.
Plus your previous comments?
They aren't justified. How about you back up your statement or obnoxious opinion before posting.
Any one else willing to give me some actual advice?

Not justified?
History of /crit/ has it that anyone who posts just dicks or noobish porn will never improve or don't care to. If OP really wanted brush help, he'd put up a blank canvas with squiggles instead of a badly drawn dogdick IN RIDICULOUS HIGH-RES(which is a clear sign for attention).

Enjoy having a dead board, Deatzh and all the other awesome critters left because cock-choking chodes.

That's possible the most idiotic comment I've ever heard.
Seriously, you're an idiot. And just fucking immature.
This is the reason the furry fandom is so frowned about, because of twats like you.

No.1466 - Link Reply Report 1466

Then clearly you should lurk the fuck more, since you imply the fandom can be respectable.

Try post a dogdick in a seriously pro place like CGsociety, even if you're asking about brushes, you'll be ripped so many new holes you'll have an extra dozen places to shit from.

So you say that you are here to ask about brushes and that the original image is irrelevant, given this the fact that you have chosen a high res bad dragon toy as the basis of your argument inevitably leads to the question 'why?' Whilst this is probably not the end of your artistic career as we know it, given the context of this site and its content, I can see where the above arguments are coming from. Perhaps in future you should consider the impact of such a so called irrelevant decision before making it. After all this is the Internet and giant dog penis comes with its own pre-prescribed statements.

As opposed to what? Disgusting non-realistic?

all of you brothers are making contributions to a thread begun by an individual who's desires are to start emotional distress.

Obviously normal, humanoid penises. Looking at dog dicks is too close to bestiality for some peoples' liking.

You people are all stupid as hell, that's all I have to say. This is a fucking furry art board, deal with dog dick, or stop being a furry.
