I don't do furry often so any critique is welcomed.(Reposting cause I didn't notice previous thread hitted bump limit.)
i hope you guys dont spend 'all' your creative energy making furshit when it could be channeled into cooler things in life.
>>6941001Nah. It's fur shit or nothing.
>>6940935Why does maid marian look like she was drawn in scott pilgrims style?i clicked on the thread just to ask that.
>>6941001>cooler thingsLike what
thank you to the book ! i should have started reading it sooner
>>6941283The style looks familiar. Is this you?I like your stuff. What did you mostly learn on?
>>6941285Yeah thats me, thank you!I started out just looking at art I saw on Twitter and studying drawings that I thought had cool shapes, colors, shading, things like that. The only problem is that artists don't really show you the steps they use for construction or anything, so I just winged it a lot of the time. It took this long to figure out how to actually add depth to the face, haha!
Sticks, reposting since the old thread died and I'd like some tips.
>>6941001you are free to list those "cooler things in life"
>>6941378fucking a deergetting fucked by a horseeating out a foxblowing a mulegetting plowed by a bullmaking love to a wolfrimming catbanging a pig
>>6941283Are you talking about that how to draw book mentioned in the last thread? I was asking if it really was good or not. If these are the results maybe I do gotta give it a read
>>6941422Yeah the manga furry book. Pretty useful!
>>6941001I want to channel my creative energy into cooler furshit.
What a great thread to post some Braixen doodles.
>>6942023Damn I wish I was a fox person and I could have sexy with another humanoid fox just look at that sexy snoot is gonna boop
I just want to say that this thread is the biggest motivation I have to get myself out of permabeg hell Someday I will post a cute wolf girlfriend here and you all will like it, someday for sure
>>6942318I’m rooting for you anon! I want you to be my little pog champ.
I haven't drawn much in the past week because I just bought a house and have been fixing up a bunch of shitbut got to doodle on my phone today
>>6940935I want to see her arranged married to a Sultan camel/goat.
>>6942531She looks like she ends up with fat old balding virile pog champ pigs
>>6942659I don't know what that means exactly, but thanks I think
>>6942688some kind of ntr or ugly bastard fantasy
>>6942683>>6942688Verbal tic. My bad. Pretty much what this>>6942692 said.She looks very cute senpai. She's so cute I want to lewd her.
i should be more methodical with perspective stuff i think, this got very messy very quick. ended up having fun drawing it though, despite some patches of frustration throughout
>>6942711Looks quite nice all in all. I mean I see no problem here dude.
>>6941311I feel. You got a blog?>>6942531Silhouette’s alright but you’re chicken scratching way too much
>>6941422>>6941555The Tuttle one?
>>6942957Not really. I have a twitter, but I just post random bullshit along with my art. Its not worth looking at lol>>6942958Yep, that one there
>>6940935interested in making furry art, but too scared to show anyone my work irl. do you anons openly share your work with others or do you just post to FA or something?
>>6942957>chicken scratching way too muchYeah I agree, it was on my phone with a stylus barely bigger than a toothpick though.
>>6942711nigga you are light years ahead of some people here, me included
>>6941375the pupils didn't look right, it's like she had a "thousand yard stare", they were also straight vertical instead of aligned to her head. here i brought them closer together so it looks like she's looking at something closer (and mirrored a pupil so both highlights are on the same side)
>>6942802>>6943113sorry, i should have been more clear, i'm happy with how it turned out! i just had to constantly draw then redraw things, when i could have gotten it right from the start
>>6943128I thought I put them close enough, guess I have to put them closer next time.Thanks man, not sure why I don't see that myself
>>6943086I post online. SFW and NSFW are on separate accounts. Even before I started doing furry I rarely showed my art to people irl and if someone does ask I just show em the SFW stuff.Don't be afraid to show people, just remember that most people outside 4chan don't know what "furry" is and think drawing animal people is as normal as animal characters in cartoons n whatnot, so just say you do cartoon stuff. Obviously you should only show NSFW to people irl who are OK with it, furry or not.
>>6941375I like your lines, g.
>>6943170Thanks, anon. There's a mix of skill and subject matter concerns that keep me from sharing openly, but I'll give it a go.>>6940935Making a character for fun. Would appreciate general feedback before I get into details, clothing, linear, and coloring.
>>6943086I just post online even though nobody ever looks at em. Which is good because I can't draw yet. Honestly the biggest problem is that the furry community is just full of crazy good artists younger and better and that feels like shit.
>>6943086No one IRL knows that I draw and I like it that way. I just post on Twitter.
This actually is my first try drawing furry stuff... since this on mind, so any critique is welcomed to get better.
>>6943086I would never show any of this stuff to someone irl
>>6943496Should make the breasts stick out more.
>>6943519you mean make them bigger? bacause if I just move them foreward I think it would make her torso appear as standing upright instead of being bent backwards.
>>6941387You know the bitch is literally not there. Everything about that world was a supposition of a psychiatric expectation of things of this world. It was literally just as shitty as this one.I couldn't find a place anywhere in the works to even consider it a potential hypostatic https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hypostasis_(philosophy_and_religion)
>>6943657Anon, no! D:
>>6943657Enjoy your vacation anon!>>6943086Most of my IRL friends and family follow me on social media, where I post my shenanigans. They don’t know I have a FA, where I plan on posting my nsfw. If they found out tho, I wouldn’t care. Most of my adult content is just nude pinups. >>6942711This is excellent!>>6942531Cute!>>6942023Cute!!
>>69430860% irl people know I even draw.Close online friends know of my SFW stuff.Only absolute randoms get to see what I actually draw, I'm a coward.
how do you guys feel about my poorly drawn pokemon haha.. honestly just glad i drew even if it was for 5 minutes and put like zero effort in. NEED to start the habit
>>6942711Don't overthink perspective. I feel the idea behind of learning the technical aspects is just to build a frame work of it then go from there. But personally, I feel intuition is ideal. Though, sometimes learning a bit of the math wouldn't hurt.>>6942023I will destroy Braixen...>>6943694Am inspired. Still working my drawings to mimic how you're rendering. I'm currently coloring this one.
>>6943487That's fucking fantastic. Like really top tier. I love it. Do you have a blog? Is "nueler" your name?
>>6943487>>6943788Argh, I'm dumb. Says on the bottom. Anyways, wonderful work anon.>>6943787Lovely Isabelle!
>>6943788Thank you anon, appreciate and yes! My user name is "Nueler".>>6943791Lmao, thank you. Still working to gid gut on that kind of art, lol.
>>6943791>Lovely Isabelle!I hate her, but had to draw her...
>>6943787Sorry not everyone can be naturally perfect at everything like Gummy’s natural intuition
>>6943858https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SUdTxXkecr8>Man is a thinking reed. But his greatest works are when he is not calculating or thinking.
>>6942531>>6942688https://files.catbox.moe/dl7fhi.pngAnon.I am sorry.I had to do it. I can't help myself. I have to let it out of my system. She's just too cute to not play with - that and it felt great being motivated again once in a while so I have to thank you for that too.>>6943487That's some cute stuff man. She is both cute and healthy all in all.>>6943694Quite cute and deadly. Plus the overall vibe is that of those old comic stuff.
Another doodle!>>6943787Maybe you can destroy one, but can you destroy 3 (three) Braixens?!
>>6943254Cute gote! Got a blog?
>>6943982thanks, anon, I really appreciate it! I don't have anything I post to just yet as this is my first attempt at a character. Maybe once I get some pieces done first, though.
>>6943995Dude you should open a twitter account, I'd totally would follow you, my dude.
>>6943928kino as fuck
about 2 hours-ishforehead was causing me trouble
>>6943787> Still working my drawings to mimic how you're renderingI’d be happy to answer questions or share any techniques. Very cute Isabelle! I’ve been finding it easier lately to erase using the selection tool, as well as fill in darker areas by selecting them first, then running my pencil brush over it.
>>6944122>s well as fill in darker areas by selecting them first, then running my pencil brush over it.Oh, I was wondering how you were getting that kind of texture in really dark areas. I'll give that a try next drawing.
>>6944122NTA, but what device do you draw on? Love your lines and how expressive they are
Drew this a while ago but and focused on different things. Does this pass as decent furry art?
>>6944143Maybe. I might jerk off to it later.
>>6944143Here another one. I went on a binge of her and the rest is nsfw.
>>6940935Throwing out my Marian swap sketch.
>>6943781i like them. practice more, they look pretty good for a 5 min rush
>>6943781Good boy! Keep practicing, little dude. And don't forget to have fun!
>>6943903>“Smarter not harder”Maybe that works in the realm of menial tasks but watching others draw isn’t going to significantly effect your own results.I recognize you by your art because as every Spanish mangaka at the top has told me, “every artist has their own style”. We’re all prewired to draw a certain way with early stages of practice already showing what our styles are going to look like. Nearly a decade later, R-MK’s kemofurry art has been the same style, just with photorealistic rendering and all of the artists who’ve intentionally attempted to emulate his abilities, even the good ones, failed by lacking his talent. He has a big following for being the only one capable of what he does.I, nor anybody else will ever have your gift. Just because anyone can learn to draw doesn’t mean anyone can do what you can
>>6943496the left tiddy is so large it is being pressed by the sweater but right tiddy is small enough to leave space when finger barely tugs on the shirt, try having the finger pull the shirt further down while supporting the bottom of the breast upward with the palm to make it appear larger and increase nipple visibility
I started strong but had brainfog later so had to simplify it. Anyway panda.
Haven't felt this good about a drawing in months !
>>6943694Love your drawings anon. Do you use ref for them? I never find a ref that I like and end up drawing from imagination
>>6944320didn't notice the beast-size difference, thank you
Anyone know this artist? I wanna study their cel shading. I tried image searching this on yandex and google images and turned up nothing.
>>6944598Looks like Jaynaylor
I might as well ride the wave of being motivated/inspired while it last. Its fun drawing furries again once in a while.>>6944076>>6944065Lel thanks.
>>6942711The laptop and stove should bend with rest
>>6944322I like the subtle chest squish from the sarashi
Another child tier drawing but at least I did it!!! I really really need to just go back to figure drawing and maybe look into a good perspective course cause this is SAD!
>>6944958Worst problem is pressing the pencil too hard. You have some potential otherwise.Don’t start posting lewds here until you’re good at it though. You will be made fun of
>>6944130Can’t wait to see what you draw up!>>6944134Thanks anon. Currently drawing on ipad, with procreate. >>6944435I find myself using refs more for things I absolutely have no idea how to draw. One of my favorite things to do when I don’t know what to draw are gestures. Practicing gestures is great to memorize poses.Still chipping at this commission here of a DnD party.
I quit Twitter a long time ago. whats a good place to share furry art? I have a newgrounds.
>>6945282Messed with the idea with the selection tool. Going to toy around with that approach and see what I get.
>>6945282Which iPad model do you use specifically? Lovely drawing again btw!
/beg/ here I'm trying to understand how the hell does the neck and hair connect in this angle but I'm drawing blanks, anyone have some tips for drawing birbs?
sketch of a flapjack octopus guy to get the idea down, i need to iron out the anatomy, especially the neck area>>6944789ah, thanks!! now that you pointed it out, it's so jarring to look at. good catch!>>6943787thanks anon. yeah, i definitely agree! i think i need to build up that intuition through more practice and also trust my intuition more when actually applying things. also, cute isabelle! makes me want to draw more animal crossing critters>>6943694thanks anon, this is really clean!!
I'm gonna start using AI kemono art for reference
>>6945836I've used some AI images as practice. It feels nice to inject a bit of soul into that which is inherently soulless.That said, it's just a fun exercise. You may as well just find the source images.
Guess I'll ask here as well, Are there any decent "bite sized" videos on youtube about perspective that could help me get started? My brain can't handle long lectures unless im there in person
>>6946111>My brain can't handle long lectures unless im there in personI have a problem learning as well, I need someone to help me personally. Videos while might be useful are just stuff I can't assimilate, same with anything writte.I think my brain is broken or I'm just retarded
>>6942318I believe in you!
>>6945675It’s not much, but here’s my method. Hope it helps!
>>6946337Forgot to add the detail where you can try the beak method on various beaks, in case the different beaks drawn seemed confusing.
>>6945391It’s looking great. Really gives it that sketchy feel. >>6945393It’s the 10.5 inch A1701 iPad Pro. I wanted to buy the 13 inch one, but could only afford the 10 inch at the time. It’s the 2019 model. Currently saving up for a newer model.
>>6946337Built for Big corkscrew cock.
>>6946431Build for ducks if thats what you mean.
>>6946337oh shit, you. I literally had your account open to find referencethanks man
movie night is RUINED.
>>6946504Now I'm just reminded of that scene from Chicken Little if anyone remembers that movie.
>>6946648jiffy pop is lethal
My gallery is mostly nsfw but Cryphalen on FAI'm trying to work on backgrounds and coloring, my line art has improved a ton and while I still have more to improve on I'm trying to focus on my much weaker aspects.Criticism welcome
>>6947209Here's another, no background, everytime I try I hate it and scrap the background and upload without
wip again, wanna texture this and stuff asapprops if you can guess the source
>>6945689part 2, idk if i want him to be skinny or buff>>6947382taran fiddler? looks really cool!
Anthro crocodile I'm working on. Yes, the pose is supposed to be stiff.
Slight redesign of an old OC. Will render this tomorrow because now I'm tired.
>>6947435Please use a reference, arms don't look like that
>>6947435post blog if you got any. I wanna see your gallery
>>6947403Thank you anon, hoping to improve!Is that b*ra octodad? Cute!!
>>6947209>>6947215no crit, but really cool stuff, anon.
Just finished drawing this
>>6947209Sensational lioness btwWould any /fag/s tell me how they go about making multiple iterations of their art a la "paper doll" (changing the facial expression, clothing, shadows, etc). It seems the only way to do this on the software i use is to just duplicate everything into its own folder and forego parity - and hope that i dont have to make an edit on the foundational layers. This seems lazy of me to think but maybe there's a better way on another software? Thanks in advance
>>6947209Really nice work anon. Don't even care about the (lack of a) background because that pose is 10/10
>>6947960>SAIpost full imglet's see those zonkers anon
>>6947960I just wanna say that this is really nice too. Loincloths are fucking HOT
I'm animating my rabbit character again, for the first time in 5 years. Feels weird to have Flash open again after all this time.
>>6947960It’s perfect.How do professionals get this far?
Y'all are really good. Meanwhile, I'm still having trouble with basic body shape. Have this, I suppose.
>>6948133Keep going, little guy! It already looks kino
>>6948124I have no idea, I can't even get character base poses right not to mention fucking god tier anatomy. It's as if my brain just refuses to learn. I'm at a loss too.
>>6948124Thanks man. Im no pro though haha>>6947382>>6947647Epic stuff - blog?
opinion on the grayscale render this far?
>>6948300Looks good. Maybe add some hard-edged shadows?
>>6948314will definitely do afterwards
>>6941283Speaking of books I remember seeing this one somewherehttps://e-hentai.org/g/2436371/11f79df5bc/It's not specifically furry related but it has good pointers for body structuring and manipulating anatomy.
Haven't made a long post in a while so have a sticker>>6948300Not a rendering expert but looks gud>>6948133Getting gud at art is about breaking out of your comfort zone and working on what you're not good at. It can be downright crushing when a genuine effort to do a study or practice turns out subpar (in your eyes) but just remember it's ok to not hit the ground running, so long as you get back up when you fall down. That being said, doing silly doodles that make you smile are just as important because it can help you let loose and relieve stress.>>6947960I plan and isolate the parts of the image that will vary. The head and all of it's features (inks, color, shades etc) gets a folder for each emote. The one time I did an alt for a painted pic I just straight up painted over the base image on a single layer. A madlad friend of mine does the same. >>6947901Sheeple>>6947647VERY based chad modeler>>6947435Very strong horse, the distinct musculature is very interesting>>6947412Cannot wait to see it uncropped>>6947209Good sexy pose, just be careful of the grass creating too many tangents>>6946962I LOVE HER>>6946504How do you fuck up jiffypop, shame on her>>6945348All of em, don't stay in one place>>6945282Yeah this is lookin pretty kino>>6944958Just keep going at it anon I believe in you! Don't listen to that either guy, post ALL the lewds>>6944644Nice kick>>6944598V nice catfish, chunky tails are kino>>6944143>>6944146Ye this counts>>6943694Unironically best pic in the thread>>6943487Make the left leg point out more>>6942711Turned out pretty great>>6942531Very neat doggo
>>6948493>none of my art taggedI see how it is
>>6948563Maybe if you weren't an ugly doodoo head who smells bad and probably licks windows, we wouldn't have this issue.
>>6948493God dang that beta art looks very nice.>nice kickThanks famalan.
>>6948493mass replyers are soo cringe
>>6948633You're cringe. We are free.
>>6948633maybe on /mu/ topster threads, but i think being able to have someone who acknowledges everything is somewhat encouraging
>>6948563I do not acknowledge loli bait
>>6947647haha thanks anon! haven't played octodad, was just feeling like drawing an octopus guy. and jeez, that looks great dude!
>>6948633Big words for a post with no image
>>6948677>everythingyou are wrong here though?
>>6948765>someone put effort into a pic>I'm not gonna critique it because... I'm just not gonna ok!?wew, I feel sorry for that anon
For those of you who do commissions/money stuff with your accounts, I have a question. I have a separate gmail account that I want to use for PayPal for stuff like possible commissions, kofi requests, whatever. It's a pseudonym, so I don't care about business account shenanigans and whatnot.My question is: if I have this email linked to my normal personal PayPal, can I select which email/info is shown when people send me money? Or would I be better off creating a whole separate PayPal for the second email?
I never get to post here because all my stuff is nsfw lmaoLet me know what you thinkhttps://files.catbox.moe/vbpqx7.jpg
>>6949290>https://files.catbox.moe/vbpqx7.jpgCute and healthy anon. Would grope.>>6948997I want to wash this kitty.
>>6949524>Would grope.I bet she'd be the type of girl who'd want you to.Here, have a bat-thing I drew a bit ago too. It's not technically porn but...May I be stricken down if it is, I guess.
>>6940996Something seems off with the arms>>6941375Draw bettr (it looks good, add color to it now)>>6941722You're on the way>>6942711Cool and funny>>6943487Something about the left eye and left leg feel off>>6945282unfiltered sovlHave some Bluey dad brianrot
>>6943487Epic first try, her left leg seems too long and also the perspective on her left eye is wonkers
>>6948927Well, perhaps I am! But I speak in respect to the concept of mass repliers, not to this specific example.
>>6943961Finished this. Not perfect, but I like it.
>>6950471I like it too senpai. Good job.
a pic I made for a friend
>>6949590You got a blog where you post your stuff? This is neat!
>>6950506Very cute. I really like how you do eyes. I tend to keep the pupils in mind when I forget how to draw them lmao.>>6950517Hey thanks! Not sure if the rest of my stuff will be what you expect, but you can find me at https://www.furaffinity.net/user/wistfulporpoise. All the rest of my links should be there. I try to post full-res on e6 or catbox, if it interests you.
Lineart is nearly complete on this crocodile. It's a very autistic piece: it's supposed to be a Jain Tirthankara.
>>6950531>Very cute. I really like how you do eyes. I tend to keep the pupils in mind when I forget how to draw them lmao.thanks, I wish I could do better. My art always looks so janky and amateurish. idk
>>6950730Yes, yes, but is it decent, art-wise?
>>6948280just vibin'original ain't mine
>>6950709I don't really like naked men but I think it's cool. The kneecaps could use a little bit of work I think. One on his left Is too high, and the one on his right looks like it should be protruding out more because of the angle of the leg. Trust me, I know you can do it.
>>6950531i have feelings for this bat
>>6951063Would you like to make a request for her? I'm sure she'd be flattered.
>>6951070can you draw her doing a silly face? such as a :P or a :O ?
>>6951133That sounds nice anon. I'll try and work on it tomorrow.
>>6950709I gotta level with ya anon, this guy looks silly as fuck
>>6950709Jannies’re gonna LOVE this!
>>6951177I gotta be honest anon, my hip is killing me today. I can barely sit. I'll do my best to deliver bat girl but it might take me a bit longer.
>>6943781Cute! Seeing two base line Pokémon next to each other reminds me of Mystery Dungeon. The habit builds up slowly, congrats for drawing today! :)
Shut up, Bradley.
>>6951851That's okay ! Take your time, anon.
>>6951882I might work on this more later, but this is all my back has tolerance for right now. Thanks for liking my character anon, I hope this makes you happy.
>>6951755I'm thinking of abandoning it and moving to something else, because I'm trying to render it and it looks wonky to me. I appreciate the criticism.
>>6951964cute!!! i saved
>>6950531>>6951964What do you use to build ur figures? Bean, boxes, ovals/circles etc?? very nice i love it
>>6952066You're going to hate me, but for the first one, I can't remember. I think I started with either boxes, or ellipses representing the ribs and stuff. For the one I drew today, I started by using a 3D model as reference to work out my initial pose idea, then I used a box. If you can't tell already, my process isn't very well-defined. I've struggled a lot with construction and finding a method that clicks with me. More often than not I just go by feel, which is incredibly unproductive and frustrating, but sometimes it works out.If I'm really having trouble with something, I'll usually start with the rib-ellipse, or a box, just so I can at least try to establish a center line. Honestly, at least for me, establishing the center is the most important step, because a lot of my stuff is really skewed (as you can likely see). I'm getting better I think, but...well, it's been a struggle. Sorry I can't be more helpful, but I'm glad you like the drawings.
>>6952091do you have a blog? i would love to see more of your art
>>6952091Nah you're fine, I'm currently struggling with finding a method that works for me as well and just trying to study from other art and try the different methods. I think preferably id like the box method to click because I assume itd be easier to imagine the Mannequin that way. Thank you though and ur art is pretty :)
>>6952167Yup, I linked my FA in the same post as my bat. :> Thanks anon.>>6952173Thanks! It makes me really happy to know that people enjoy some of the things I draw.
anything seriously wrong I don't see?
>>6952300Use variable line weight. You obviously have some understanding and skill, but a single static line width just flattens everything. Clean lines are such overrated advice, depth and implied shapes are more pleasingAlso third panel took me a while to understand, Is the cat trying to throw the pillow under the lizard's legs to catch the egg? Why are we seeing the cat from an overhead perspective then?
>>6952322FInally some actually good advice thanks. I didn't include a horizon line/background so that could lead to confusion. Panel 3 and 4 are basically the same perspective.One of my fav artists snowskau, who I try to refrence in my linework, does include a slight amount of line width but more opacity based linestrengh. Something I still have to figure out with photoshop
>>6952338Oh now I get it, the cat is divebombing forward and we're looking through the lizard's legs? Yeah, that's definitely a tricky angle to pull off. I tried extreme perspective stuff recently and it was a bit screwy as well, definitely my weakest point. But at least you're trying stuff, I respect slightly weird extreme perspective more than I do just okay super easy 3/4 angle posesMaybe put the pillow more in "front" of the cat, as it is, it looks like it's "above' the cat which causes the perspective confusion
>>6948124cel shadingno I'm not kidding
Another doodle! >>6950495Thanks anon! Are you gonna finish that drawing? Looking pretty good!>>6952057Amazing
i tried doing a different kind of style for this drawing and im surprised at how much better it looks than my usual art, i'm kinda curious as to how i could improve it. i should post something other than a boring headshot later
>>6952461Its an old drawing so I dunno if I'll have time to finish it. I am just thinking of making a poke-OC of some sort in the future.
hey bros returning after a very VERY long hiatus involving anything art related. I got an iPad during black friday and have been trying to learn procreate. Here are 2 of my first drawings, thought I’d post here before anywhere else.Anyone have a good read or video about eyes? I just can’t get them right. Same with feet but I can always just cut those off :)
>>6952710Oops I forgot to turn a layer on for the image on the right
>>6952710Grumpy milfs in robes smoking cigarettes is very much my jam. Well done.And welcome back. I hope a new drawing tool reinvigorates your love for drawing like it did for me. How do you find Procreate so far? Looks like you're adjusting pretty well.
>>6952718same and thank you very much, it means a lot when its from a stranger- and procreate is a little overwhelming to be honest, lots of gesture shit you need to learn, and there are a million (and more!) brushes to test. plus im only using the usb-c apple pen this week until i can get the gen 2 next week, my apple store was sold out and ive heard the pressure sensor makes a world of a difference for tapering. and yea im psyched to start art again, i always felt something was missing in my life. its been like 11 years, since high school let out.
>>6952733>gesture shitAh yes, the reason I bought a separate bluetooth dongle for hotkeys. I use a Surface Studio though, so the gestures aren't as fleshed out. I'm sure you'll be fine. also jealous of your pen. The Surface pen is actually quite good at what it does, and a lot of reviews do it injustice--it works just fine. But the Apple pen does seem to perform better. I just have no use for an iPad.>11 years, since high schoollmao, you're basically me. Took me 1about 14 years to get back into it though, again since high school, but it's been going really well. And judging from your work, it's going well for you too. Just remember not to give up even when it's rough, and I think you know all to well it will get rough again. You have at least one anon in your corner.
>>6952367yea exactly. You're looking trough the legs. I mean you only improve when you push yourself out of your comfort zone as tacky as it sounds. Only drawing characters standing or sitting from another characters POV get boring fast. The only thing I'm still struggeling with are the cat's huge tits. idk how to make them visible but not look silly trough her nightgown
Gave this a shot
>>6940935Is furry art still earn money? I just realized I can draw both sfw and NSFW very well and want to utilize all my free time to earn more income.
>>6953041>Is furry art still earn money?Not gonna make fun of you for being ESL, but if you have to ask it's best Not to bother with it. For those who draw furry art, yes you can still earn money for commissions. But if you're good at your craft doesn't matter the subject you can make said cash no problem.Obviously, in your case you suck at art and instead of asking if there's money involved, post work so we can help you improve. Otherwise, study more Loomis.
im a bit late but happy thanksgiving!
>>6951133POV: you're watching horror movies with your demon bat gf as she wears your shirt that's a bit too big for her.>>6952972I love this pose, and you did it so well. Great job, anon!>>6953101That tail is so big. What it do? Lovely work, and happy thanksgiving to you too.>>6953274Very cute! As you can see, I'm not great with expressions myself, but if I were to offer you any criticism, it would be to work on the placement of her snout a bit. I feel like you should see the other side of her head there, or her snout should be wider (generally speaking, the cheekbone is the widest part of the skull).
love to draw the gay furry art
when do you start signing your stuff without it looking pretentious?
>>6952461>>6952057Thank you very much!
>>6953680>>6953686These are awesome.
>>6953531thank you, kino, saved, big tail, happy thanksgivingsorry im very excited
>>6953572how do you do that thing where the arms are darker on some parts ?
>>6953695That's just shading/hatching/linework, anon. There's no trick to it.
>>6953698oh, well it looks cool and i thought you should know :)
>>6953765I'm not the artist, but I agree, it does looks cool. It's very well done.
>>6953954lovely dragon, draw more of her!
Anyone else love making memes for your tabletop group? Every so often the other players will dig up memes I made from years back for a laugh and it's a great feeling.>>6953955>>6953976Thanks lads!
>>6953954>>6954037Very lovely style. Do you have a gallery?Btw I platinum'd Elden Ring AND Bloodborne. ;)
>>6954038I do, if you can stand FA or Twitter. I don't know if you're allowed to post links, but I'm 60percentscalie if you feel like looking me up.
>>6954042>TwitterNo. I nuked my shit ages ago. I only deal with FA and stuff now, which hasn't done me any favors, but we're in the middle of an nsfw social media apocalypse, so it's the best I can do.Also I DID look you up, and you're quite good. Well done anon!
>>6954051Thank you very much dude
>>6953954>>6954057I love how clean your lines and shapes are! If you don't mind me asking how'd you get this good?
>>6954057No problem, fellow low-voiced chad. I call it like I see it.HOWEVER I must know why your little bad twink doesn't have the bat nose in a lot of pics. Don't deprive us of bat nose.
“Hurry up and strip down! I gotta practice my fundies!”
>>6954060I don't have any special way of doing it. I just try to break whatever I want to draw down into simple shapes and leave a few nice looking angles here and there when I clean up. Angles are interesting.>>6954066Well, those are actually several separate bat characters, and none are actually mine, they're owned by two good friends of mine. Sometimes they commission me, and sometimes I just borrow their bats to doodle with.
>>6954073You're so fucking good, goddamn. I swear to god why the hell am I getting mogged the hardest by the furry general
>>6954081He's not good, he's just gay.>>6954084See? It's practically cheating.
>>6954081I've been doing this for many years. Just keep drawing and you'll get there in no time dude, don't worry.
>>6954087Also I realized belatedly I posted pr0n and that seems to be a no no here
>>6954087I sure hope so. I'm still on my 1st year of drawing. It is pretty embarrassing getting absolutely wrecked by 15 year olds who draw 7 hours a day since they were 3.
>>6954092I'm sure you're better than you think anon.
>>6954093Nah, not right now, not yet. I posted once here and quickly deleted it after realizing that I'm just too beg for this general. I have no doubts that I'll get there though. It'll take a while but I'll make sure I get there.
>>6954095You will, but trust me when I say, learn to take pride in your work early on, even if you're not as good as you want to be. It will set you up later on down the road, and make the whole journey more pleasant.
>>6954092Everybody starts somewhere, and the first step to being good at something is sucking at it. Also, try not to compare yourself to others too much. Instead, compare yourself to you from yesterday, or the week before, or one year ago. It'll help you grasp the progress you've made, as well as how far you still want to go.
>>6954097Oh, I do. Especially when I go outside of my comfort zone and still manage to hold it together. It just wears off quick is all. What can I say, it's hard being someone who really wants to draw things but (probably) doesn't have true love or passion for it like actual artists. Ah well.
>>6954107Yeah, can't teach passion. You gotta find it yourself.
>>6954115Mmhmm. That's the real source of comparison for me, really. Not just talent or skill, but how I can tell that these artists are fortunate enough to have found their passion early and use it as fuel ever since. Meanwhile wannabes like me get told how art's not for me since I just don't got it in my soul. But yeah, enough about me. Keep up the great work. Someday I'll be standing where you are right now, I hope.
>>6954121What kinda stuff usually inspires you to want to draw? Do you have any artists whose styles you'd like to try to emulate?
>>6954086its true. being gay gives you +2 dexterity which gets added to you art rolls.
>>6954136Fug. I wish I were gay, but I just can't quit tits.
How do you guys get ideas for drawing things like animals and such? I wanna draw all kinds of zany and wacky things bur I don't want to copy people's characters and poses. But at the same time..... ohhhhh they just look so good, I wanna do it so baaahahahahaaddd.....
>>6954125I just wanna draw wolves. And I do have a lot of other people's art in my inspiration folder but I've never copied them 1:1
>>6954081>why the hell am I getting mogged the hardest by the furry generalThe best artists on /ic/ (people that actually draw) congregate here.
>>6954495Of course, the people who just draw what they want because they love it without a care of how weird or degenerate it is have the most exp points by far kek But yeah, that's why I hope to develop that kinda passion too. Someday for sure.
>>6954279You're going to end up copying poses eventually. There are only so many. Might as well just draw and not worry about it.
>>6954610That boy is THICC. What is he supposed to be?
>>6954610Those arms look like bargue plates. Man, I copied that entire book and felt like I didn't learn shit.
>>6954610Oh this is going into my anatomy studies folder. And yeah those bargue arms though, damn
>>6954668>>6954707I'm not really doing them "correctly" but I'm finding them to be a useful exercise regardless. I'll probably try spending more time than half an hour on them when I'm done with the semester; for now they're just a fun warmup in the morning before classes
>>6954913Geez, I hope to get to your level someday. Even doing simple sighting exercises take me about an hour. (And yeah I know I messed up the shadows bad)
>>6954936thats good! my best advice is look into “blocking” and “blocking out”. values are the most difficult to really get with round, non-planar forms, and a lot of forms can be made more geometric snd planar. thats kinda the point of bargues references and stuff like that one angular face lighting model. focus on the darkest darks and lightest lights first before approaching the midtones and halftones; you can make really appealing, interesting, and dynamic art with just two values.
>>6954997Hmm! Thank you! I always heard about working light to dark and vice versa, but I often get the order confused depending on what I'm doing. And also forgive the confusion, I already got the notional space box and the shadow block-ins on a different layer, then I used the blending tool on the main layer. And also I don't know how the blending tool works. I just picked up digital last month and still figuring my way around, my bad.
>>6955007Don't worry about it; blending is honestly the hardest and most opaque part of the process to both do and learn so I don't blame you. I think when growing up we all smear our pencil sketches and call it something like "shading", which is really just smearing the values together. There's a lot of dogma vehemently against using blending tools for that reason, but its still useful and something I use when smoothing out a soft transition or sculpting out a rounded form. I also use procreate and the smear tool is pretty simple, just use a variety of brushes with the tool and see which gives you the best and most appealing results. Try to be reserved and directed and intentional with your use of it, hard transitions between different planes should remain hard, and your values should stay clearly defined between lights and darks. Also, try stuff like hatching, using a limited number of grayscale tones in value studies, and other stuff like that as exercises from time to time. I'm still learning myself and haven't even really gotten to painting in color all that much
>>6954936https://youtu.be/oa8lkr5_nM8?t=150https://youtu.be/8U_h3fw7VRc?t=1585Two simple sphere rendering videos you can follow along. I assume you already know that stuff about terminator, center light, highlight... The one about rendering veins is cool
>>6955035Thanks! It's been so long since I've had to shade a sphere for a class. I've never been very good at light & shadow so it's good to get a refresher. Also >>6955024Are there seriously people who scoff at blending like that? Everyone in this 1 art class I took earlier in the year had at least a few worn out tortillons in their tool box. And I really suck at hatching but that limited grayscale value palette sounds like a fun tiime. For my cherry I just layered the pencil strokes like I do irl.
I'm a little on the fence about the colors on this one.
>>6955130yeah, you'll definitely come across the discussion when looking at rendering/blending stuff online. the blending tool is argued both for and against at different points in the ctrl paint series.
>>6954610Your drawings motivated me to try and draw a more muscular body. Holy fuck it's hard. Maybe I should start studying instead of just drawing cartoons.
>>6955132I remember you, where is the green one?
>>6955395thats awesome anon!! drawing more detailed bodies in terms of fat and muscle is tough, but really rewarding and fun and it'll be hard to stop once you've started! keep it up!
>>6956517Sybil is a NIGGOAT
From a drawpile
about to copy the entire yoh yoshinari sketchbook in 5 days. I'll become a God!
>>6954099Yo anon, it's me again. Just wanna say sorry for my mini meltdown back there. I get that I got no right to complain, I literally only started this year. I've been out too long, seen too much. My brain demands things my hands can't make. I'll do my best regardless. Next year, I wanna at least reach mid-/beg/. I hope in 10 years I can reach the quality of your works. Good day/night.
>>6954057I really like seeing your stuff>>6954610woah, grabbable>>6956517texturepilled>>6957170nice body, idk how to feel about the eyesStruggling to draw for fun and making it look good at the same timeDecided to make a fish version of a sona
>>6952710back again with a new pic, I spent monday practicing eyes and finally got a shape I like. hope you guys like this hooligan ratand if anyone has any critiques pls let me know, be as blunt as you want idc
>>6954099What good is that if someone wants to emulate your style specifically?I don’t just want to be better, I want to be a carbon copy of who I idolize, I’ve been told by inspirations that it’s impossible because “Everyone draws in their own style”
Thoughts on this? She's supposed to be a librarian crow character.
>>6957645Not bad! I’d say fix a few minor anatomy issues. Her torso doesn’t look like it’s connecting to her rib cage. Also he stance is leaning too far.
>>6957645>>6957778She looks great bro. This guy's critique is spot on as well. Also she's dressed quite "adventurously" for a librarian
>>6957838>>6957778Thanks for the feedback!
>>6957231the arms look like like he hasn't eaten for 2 weeks but his thighs say otherwise. Practise some more anatomy and the composition of the body that you want 2 draw.>>6957295Very cute but I'd make her belly a bit thinner around her outline. Make her outline a bit more feminine.>>6957645Center of mass seems a bit off so that it looks like as if she's about to fall on her beak but It looks great.>>6958179you know what you're doing. it would be pointless to point out errors in a heavy stylized pice
most soulful thread on ic, honestly.
>>6958475>I'm ovulating, babe *wink*>No way, fag. Breakfast time!lmao
>>6959068Agreed, and not just because I'm a furfag. Everyone here's really good. A lot more receptive to beg works and quicker to give advice and critique too. Not a lot of the other generals are like this, maybe the drawthreads but that's it. As I've said, this general is my biggest motivation for me to get out of permabeg hell. Wait for me, senseis. You'll all see.
>>6959082I wanna get good enough that someone calls me sensei one day.
>>6959092From where I'm standing right now you're already one compared to me. Keep practicing and get better anon, you and me. We'll get there.
>>6957295>>6957645>>6958179only just got here but these are all rad
>>6959179>>6958179especially this one, what a rat
Some concept art of a businesswoman Kobold. 1/2
>>6959391>>6959392Niiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiice. Is she the boss? Does she have a twinky male kobold secretary that she uses on her breaks?
>>6959391It's always nice to look at your art! Also what brush are you using?
NEW THREAD WHEN????
>>6959420Thanks anon. I’m not sure what her background is. She’s a character I was commissioned for a nsfw comic a buddy of mine asked me to draw for him. >>6959474Thank you too anon. Brush I use for my sketches is an edited “Peppermint” on procreate. I just lowered the brightness mostly to get a more dense pencil look
>>6959782Never. Art is kill
>>6959782>>6960050New thread is NOW !!!>>6960070>>6960070>>6960070
