Just practicing some shading techniques.
I really like this style of shading, fun and not so realistic it bores me. I think I might have found a a soft shading style I like^^

I really dig the light and shading. They help bring out the angelic qualities of this piece.

I really love that shading style <3 it's not too toony but not too realistic either and goes well with your art style. I also love all the floof <3 you did a great job with the textures for it

Thank you^^
Well since I changed my species and I don't care who knows who I am and it's pretty obvious anyway XD I'll be spamming artwork of Farron soon.
Finally made use of that adopt I got a couple months ago^^

Yes, yes, and yes! I love seeing these sketches! In fact, I might enjoy seeing those more than actual pictures.

As for the picture on the top of the page, I have a few suggestions:
There's a lot of really good contrast in that picture, but I would personally argue it's too much. This may be due to the background. I don't really like how the background here is so dark and is essentially the same shade and color as the character. The shading on it looks really good, but the particular shades of it made the body look aesthetically displeasing.

One thing I see in a lot of furry digital art is the shading is really really good because it's so dark and bright, but it's too much. This makes it look aesthetically displeasing.  I know you are trying out some new shading techniques, but if you don't want it to look so realistic, slightly damper the darks and make them slightly lighter, maybe a little less gradual. Gradual shading is great, but it can be painful for the brain to look at if that's all it sees.

If you want a more realistic drawing, you're going to be much more detailed, considering taking off lineart. Lineart is essentially the quality of non-realistic drawings.

This new drawing is amazing! The shading on this one is definitely the style you would be looking for! I prefer this style myself actually.

Thank you for the critique^^

Now for the bg on the first pic. I can see what your talking about, I still don't like the color, it took me an hour to find a color I'm okay with. I try to make my bgs the same color as the shading color I use to make the character look more like they belong in the pic while the whole pic is just kinda random. It didn't help that the colors I used blended in with her main coat color making her blend in more than I want. Actually one of the main reasons the pic is so glowy(plus I like making glowy stuff)
I also trying for a more magical look while still delivering semi-realistic shading which is why a lot of my stuff is so dark and so light, also my laptop makes darks look lighter so its hard for me to judge how dark it really is. I will be experimenting with less darker darks though :3 Also my next pic I'm working on I'm gonna experiment with the lines so they don't stand out so bad. I just get lazy with messing with lines and I don't wanna ruin the picture >.<

I'm a huge sucker for orange & black, so to me this is amazing.

I love the earlier sketches, too.

Omg I love Farrons design, please say you're keeping her after SCW. The combination of gray, black and orange look great but don't look halloweeny. And her outfit looks awesome and definitely contributes to the character. I love the way you draw her, she always looks very confident which definitely adds to the character

I will be keeping her after SCW, I love her too much, kinda making a story while daydreaming too. Just like all my other "stories" I'll probably never post it though, I'm not a writer >.< I even Incorporated a reason for that I hate cats thing I was doing XD
Thanks^^ But I did not design her fur color/pattern design, I got her from SweetPuperoo an FA a couple months ago.

I take (most)credit for the outfit though(she was kinda based off of another character) XP I love designing fantasy clothes I haven't done it in a while and recently got back into it.

She has a sensitive side as well heres something I'm working on. First time doing something like this so tell me what you think and don't be afraid to critique.


Some questions, mainly about the dead girl.

Is the head tilted too far back? Is she being held wrong? Does she not look limp enough? Do naturally curly tails stay curled after death or limp?
I want this to look emotional but crappy anatomy takes away from that.
Thank you^^

Note- Final version will have blood, may have clean version. Is it okay to link the pic here with a warning if theres blood, or clean version only?
If the a dead girl is too much for some members, let me know so I can either remove it or link it

OMG THIS IS SO CUTE! CAN I TAKE HER HOME WITH ME!?


For the newest picture, the sketch, I think the leg closer needs to be moved to the left more. It looks like she's turning slightly to the right instead of forward.
Since she's walking, the back leg (the one behind), actually the foot itself should be slightly slightly turned outwards. Just more of a balance critique here. Itll just look a little more natural.
Or you could the whole leg right a little. That might work.

Consider mirror imaging your drawing to see your own mistakes.

Seriously though, that first picture is sooooo cute. *Saves image to phone

Hot damn, why are you so good?! Even the variety of styles and everything, gosh. So jealous @w@

I also really like the sketches; normally I'm not one for concept sketches for movies and such, but its cool seeing a furry character be planned out, I guess :lol-fox:

Uncle-Noob - No you can't take her home, she's mine D:

Eagle God-Heart - I'm not a good teacher. You may use my art as a reference though. All I ask is you don't straight up copy them and don't be afraid to develope your own style^^

Miskatonick Wyrm - Thanks, I am currently open for commissions over at FA, only for sketches and cell shaded art though.

Platypus - I have nothing better to do so I draw 24/7 .o.
I love seeing concept art, its interesting to see what characters look liked and originally planned to be before they were finalized. I'm more interested in game concepts though :3 For awhile I actually wanted to be a concept artist so I practiced drawing quick sketches and designs a lot, but I gave up that dream since I don't think I'll make it there.
Glad you like them though^^ I love designing characters, reason why I have so many XP

In my own opinion, I hate this pose. It's a dynamic pose for sure, but I never thought it was dynamic enough because I thought it was so generic. I don't know what you did here, but it looks really good! I wouldn't have been able to pull it off with this pose, but you did it. That's what I find most impressive.

speaking of style ive been wondering about that. is it just me or after so long almost all styles will be "taken" i mean there are only so many ways to draw somthing. but either way i have to admit i may take so inspiration from your work but i'll do my best not to copy your style because ive heard enough crap from the art community not to do it.

Uncle-Noob - Thanks, glad I was to take something boring and generic look nice and new^^ Assuming your talking about the chibi, maybe it was the music. I know its not uncommon for artists to listen to music while drawing and feel the emotion of the drawing but thats what I do.
I was listening to somthing fun an upbeat which made for a very fun and upbeat drawing. I get into my art way more with the right music. You can almost tell what kind of music I'm listening to(or lack of) by the way I have drawn the characters.

Eagle God-Heart - Well you honestly can't copyright a style, it'd be light copyrighting wolves .3.
Even if you "copy" a style over time you instinctively make it your own, adding things you like, removing things you don't like, etc.
For example, my main artwork style would be considered anime. But even though its considered "anime style" I developed it(and still developing it) I've added and took away things I like, therefore eventually making my own style which is unique to me and recognized by my fallowers(or at least hope so, I feel as though I've been blending in >.< )
Style just happens, you can't really help it. Honestly don't be too scared of accidentally "stealing someones style", like I said style is not copyrighted and everybody starts out mimicing somebody else style. I started out drawing in the Pokemon style :3
Anyway when I said "don't straight up copy" I ment more as in "don't copy exact pose and every detail I put into the artwork your referencing" not "do not copy my style". I really don't care if someone "steals my style", if their not doing it out of malicious intent or just pure lazy-ness they'll grow out of it, make their own style and move on.
I would actually feel really honored if somebody admired and referenced(or "steal my style" ) my art in the beginning of their hobby since I'm not a good teacher and very nervous when being social so I can't actually help/teach people the way I want^^
I don't approve of art theft whatsoever, but I'm very lenient when it come to beginners learning off of my art, because I was like that too at the beginning:3

Sorry I typed a bit more then it was originally suppose to be ^^'
