I feel like all my designs use the same boring patterns (stripes or spots) and I think I need to start branching out more and getting more original but idk what to do

Was satisfied with my art and now it seems very shitty again :P

I have super stiff poses, bland facial expressions, shading is atrocious, eyes are super square, hair is super stiff and cardboard-like, I can't draw open furry mouths super well, clothing folds are super exaggerated and simplistic and I have no idea how a body fits underneath clothes and fur tbh.

Pixlr (editor) isn't working right. It won't show images when you upload them, and various other things are refusing to load

I really hope this is just a temporary bug and not a system compatibility issue, considering I'm (still stuck) using Windows Vista
I was excited to go over a traditional drawing of mine digitally today, but I guess that's not happening

I always have the urge to try new styles
I wish I could stick with one

I agree
Especially if they don't even give credit to pictures they used when they do it

I feel like a lot of my characters are pretty much the same aside from species. I feel I put too much of myself into them so they all end up the same but with minor differences whether that be physical appearance or personality(probably why most are a sonas temporarily).
I really gotta branch out more and keep that stuff to sonas only but its so hard xux

honestly, my biggest beef with furries is how badly they treat artists. ive never come across a fandom filled with so many art thieves and people with entitlement complexes thinking they deserve a full fledged illustration at a budget of $2. do they realize that in the art industry, a full illustration generally runs $200+, sometimes 1k? probably not.

Yeah I 100% agree with this
And how people are like "I only have $3 in my PayPal :(( " to try to make people feel sorry
