I'm really excited to get a tablet, but it's going to be a while and I'm have trouble being patient. On a similar note, drawing a traditional reference sheet is giving me problems because it's so difficult to properly mirror an image.

Here's something that'll hopefully help

If we look at a few references, we can come to the conclusion that their facial shape is of a triangle:





All you need to do is experiment with using a smaller triangle as the base of your sketch, I tend to use triangles when drawing Regal a lot, I simply smooth out the rough corners and I start the line art

However, if you don't want to your sona to be anatomically correct, then bend the rules and experiment with long snouts and shapes

Hope this helped

When people critique your stuff on your for sale post *thumbs up emoji*. Because that totally makes people want to buy my stuff. I also love how they critiqued the caracal because I missed a natural marking but the space leopard with wings and crazy colors was a ok

Yeah I'm totally fine with critique but I don't think critiquing adopts or commissions is the time and place to do it :/
Haven't had the problem myself but I cringe every time I see it on an adopt for sale or on a finished commission. It makes people not want to buy or feel their commission they payed for isn't good enough even though they loved it.

---------------------------

Why can't I get the motivation to draw when I actually need it :'3 I got three trades, a commission to do and my motivation just went poof x.x

I have no idea how to draw the right anthro hands.
Here's an old reference I used:

Wow I actually tried this and it's quite helpful. Idk why I couldn't find one for paws in this style, it was all just hands with paw pads.

Pinterest is your friend, I have one and would get anthro tutorials and references recommended to me all the time

Tmw someone sees you drawing irl and they ask you to draw them.
I'm always to myself like, "But... I draw furrs and one-eyes freaks... I literally don't think when I draw."
But what I say is, "Hehe... cant right now." or something of the sort
