Artroom for improvemnt
« on: January 05, 2014, 03:39:49 am »
So ill post some art from time to time and i need you to help me improve my art by telling me what i should do. So ive been having trouble on anatomy in terms of what makes a human animal hybrid anatomically correct, or in this case close but stylized.

... I can't seem to find fault with it. Awesome!

edit: Maybe, uh, shorter neck for the right one? Other than that I really can't find anything wrong with this OTL

Honestly, these look really good as-is; you have an amazing grasp of human anatomy, and even animal facial shapes.
If you DO want to make it scream "furry" more, however, you could add more fur, like you said...a lot of people add some fluffs/hints of fur where the body bends, like the shoulders and elbows. You could also always make the legs more digitigrade/unguligrade, if you're so inclined

Agreeing with the above two members. I really like this piece and think your anatomy is great.

As for the fur, it does not really need to be drawn in, it becomes more noticeable once the picture is colored. If anything, you can add some on the elbows, cheeks, maybe chest fluff or crotch fluff.

When I used to draw, I would make little "v" on the body to show fur, and I later realized that this was like, really awful and just made the picture look bad.  I did a quick "how to draw fur" in the FurAffinity search bar and found this.  Yeah, just searching for things really helps a lot.   And good job once again.

Perhaps this link will work. I actually looked at the description of the picture and there's a Youtube video on how he did it XD

I'd say work on resolving your marks, that sounds a little odd, but right now your forms are hewn from what an old professor of mine referred to as "chicken scratch". It's fine to work this way while learning, but as you grow you'll want to build from abstract clumped marks or simply place longer more confident lines.

The anatomy will work for what you want, if it is a bit stylized, but that seems to be your goal. Be aware of shoulders and chests, there is strange asymmetry beyond what you would normally see in a human form, particularly in your left figure. As for their heads, look to nature first and stylize from that, it will tell you how to properly construct your shapes.

As for colors its hard to say, it would be helpful to see examples of your recent work and what your goals for this piece are.

Ill also be careful on the body symmerty i see where you got that i didnt notice how crooked the figures are thanks for pointing that out. I will also post a colored piece next time im hoping to get more advice. Thanks alot theo!

Oh come now, friendo. Your art is practically flawless for human anatomy! Take pride in it, I wish I had that skill
