Big hunky men, how do you work?! Well I can't even draw a small man how am I suppose to draw a big buff one XD
Been really in the mood to draw some big non-cutesy males, especially with some of my tiny girls but dang why does male anatomy have to be so hard to draw?!

As much as I like where my style is going I think I lost the ability to draw non-cutesy stuff .o.

Anybody else just get those random spurs of inspiration late at night, and like its way to late to start a big project so you leave till the next day and just totally loose your motivation to do it.
I've been wanting to start a new fursuit but my motivation comes so late at night and I wait then my inspiration and motivation just poofs for a bit XD
Its so annoying ._.

USING REFERENCES ISN'T BAD
YOU ACTUALLY NEED TO USE THEM IN ORDER TO GET ANYWHERE
PEOPLE NEED TO GET THIS THROUGH THEIR THICK SKULLS
STOP DEMONIZING REFERENCING. AND IF YOU'RE AN ARTIST, USE REFERENCES.

People give away so much free art that it ruins people's perception of what art is really worth

so artists struggle to sell a piece for just 3$  ccccc:

Kinda same for the first part~

And yeah.. Traditional art doesn't get much love on the Internet and I think it's because of the quality of the picture's picture. There are times when the lighting and angle are just off and take away (or in rare cases enhance) how the drawing actually looks in person. Take my drawing over here. It looks horrendous because of how and where I took my picture. Also I couldn't scan it because the picture would appear too bright for the dark scene.
