Sorry, yeah. Not very constructive of me. I looked at it harder, and it's not as bad as I thought, but I think the problem lies mostly with the lower legs.

I think you tried to squeeze the whole character onto the page, because you end up drawing the upper half pretty well, and then it becomes shorter as you approach the bottom. I have admittedly done a lot of this in the past.

Sure thing. Your upper halves seem pretty good. On the other hand, your lower halves are far too stunted. It makes the characters seem a little malformed or something. Although the colouring is very good, It is quite apparent on >>12554

Am I right in guessing you draw the characters from the head down? I used to do the same, and when you run out of space (for the page expiring, details already drawn below), you distort the proportions to make it fit. I used to do it all the time myself.

Pic is something I did five years ago, and you can see that the legs have been shortened to accommodate the characters already drawn below.

I don't hope to come across as rude or something, I'm just trying to help.

I don't think you're being rude at all. In fact, I am quite thankful you're taking the time to write all this down for me. :)

And yes, I do draw from the head down, and I am in full agreement with your saying of how I try to fit the full body in by comprising the proportions. I used to draw characters really small and now I'm having a hard time keeping them fitting the page. :P

Thanks for the red line too. I can see now how short the legs are!

If they're getting too large for the page, you expand the page. This is digital media; you don't have so finite an amount of canvas to work with. If you want the characters to take up a specific amount of room, rough out the general shape of their body before going at it.
No. 13078 ID: 09a2fd

I guess I should've been more specific. I was talking about traditional art. :I
No. 13090 ID: 2563d4
Even if you don't take the time to block out the general body shape, you can help bound the character better by just drawing a couple of lines where the top of the head and the soles of the feet are supposed to be, then a mark halfway for the base of the groin.

(Also helpful as an early check for the character's balance.)

Actually, it's about right. The clothes make the man... er.. anthro. Here, take a gander at this picture I just googled

Look at that bitch on the right, her head is SUPER TINY.

Bulky angular clothes make the person look bigger than they should. I'll concede that the head is on the smallish side, but it's totally okay.

If you're going for humanish, lengthen those midget legs, if you're going for animalish, then really I guess they would be fine.

I've always secretly wished more anthros would have different shoes... something less human.

I think you have to actually make an slight increase in 'furry' head size, because the structure of the head is actually very different, but it varies between artists I guess.
No. 13143 ID: 09a2fd

Exactly. If you try to make it the same size as a human head, it's going to look very awkward. But, yeah, as you said, people tend to have their own style. I'm not going to go out and say my style is very realistic either.

No. 13160 ID: 654514
Remember that everyone has their own approach, some people tend to exxagerate the fur size, and they lose features by blending them in the actual fur and not latching them properly on the skull structure.

This is to be expected when you are dealing with anthro's , you will have comic-book ish features.

Hey Fidchell. It's great to see how your coloring and lineart has improved (also noticable in the quest).

However, I would like to mention the figures you draw seem sometimes a little "stiff" or "wooden" and as a result seem not as lively as they could be.

I think this may have something to do with many of your drawings having either a full frontal view of the face or a 90 degree view of the face, regardless of the body, which makes the people seem to be "feeling uneasy".

This might be more of a "arragement" or a "composition" critique than a straight critique of your drawing, since you seem to know where to put your lines or colors (as we can all see).

Anyway, keep up the good work!
No. 13576 ID: 09a2fd

It's all thanks to you guys. :) I wouldn't have improved as much in such a short amount of time if it weren't for pointers I've been given along the way.

As for stiffness, do you mean I should do more pictures where the characters' look in a more 45 degree angle or something? I'm not sure I follow.
No. 13577 ID: 132b99
need full head rotations. start facing left and redraw the head every 5~10 degrees until it's looking right

"Stiffness" anon here.

Maybe it's just part of your style. Well, do you know the feeling, when you see a drawing and the objects and/or persons seem to "float"? As if they don't have weight. And as such, the arms and legs and the head seem more like part of a doll, instead of being organic.

I can't seem to express it properly, and as such, you should probably ignore what I say. :)

I hopefully do not sound unnecessarily negative or discouraging you in any way (that would be terrible!).
Thumbs up again for you gallery here and your quest.

How I draw gun?
No. 14062 ID: 1444d5
>How I draw gun?
With judicious photographic referencing.
Tips: ejection ports almost always face right (to eject cartridges away from the firer), the mode selector switch is positioned above the grip (where the thumb would be able to easily operate it), the stock should be tucked under the arm (or placed against the shoulder) of the same arm that holds the grip, and fingers should stay out of the trigger guard until you've already aimed and are about to fire.
No. 14063 ID: 09a2fd

BAH! Yeah, hardly used any reference for this if it wasn't already obvious. Hope I haven't offended any gun nuts here.
No. 14067 ID: e563b5
Gun looks fine to me, passable anyhow. But it's how her hands/body are interacting with the gun that seems 'off' here. She needs to be conforming more to the weapon. 'grasping' it... not merely palming it.

No. 14231 ID: b85f8c
I think you should have the animal's spine flex a lot more during that animation- it looks rather stiff. Try looking at pictures/videos of cats running. Also having slightly uneven movement between the foreground and background legs would make it look better. It's currently rather difficult to even notice that the background legs are there.

The cloth detail and shading is quite good here, probably the best part of this picture I'd say. I'll also note that I respect just how much trouble goes into drawing a long muzzle with foreshortening (personally I would have added whiskers but I notice a lot of artists tend to drop them, especially for female characters.)

If I may, how exactly do you do you affect your fur patterning. I would guess the smudge tool on a high setting.
No. 15006 ID: 09a2fd

Thanks. :) The thing about the whiskers is that, you are correct, the lack of it somehow gives off a more "clean" and feminine look, so I just went with it in her design.

The fur detail was done simply by brush strokes with a tablet pen, but with a special brush preset under the "Other Dynamics" function that makes the opacity AND size different with pen pressure.
