Just a small question about my drawings
« on: March 05, 2017, 09:41:37 pm »
Hey everyone... Firstly, this is not a "My art collection" topic, but I just wanted to ask... Will I get any hate if I post drawings that may not be awesome and perfect? I mean, my skill level is not rock bottom, but still far from perfection.

And can you give me the most useful sources/tutorials about drawing furries that you read/seen?

Dude, no one here is going to insult your art. I've never seen anyone insult art on this site, just give constructive criticism. I'm not a perfect artist either, I'm far from it, but I still post my stuff.

No, however you will get constructive criticism if you ask for it-However I've noticed that the comments left here on the Art Board are rather subtle

Generally there is no such thing as 'not awesome and perfect' art, because everyone has different preferences

As for the sources and material for furry/anthro anatomy, you can usually find a lot of good tutorials on Pinterest, Tumblr, Google Images, and even here-

Hope that helps

Hey there! I can promise you won't get any hateful comments if you post your art on here ^.^
This site is super friendly. The most you'll get is some constructive criticism, but it's never mean.
Here are a few references and such I've used~

I'd also suggest using reference images of the animal you want to draw to get some bits of anatomy (ie cat muzzles, different tails, face shape, etc), as they can vary between species. Hope this helps!!  :lol-fox:

yo as the above people have mentioned, you won't get any hate here for posting art. The references I use for anthropomorphic animals are actually zootopia characters, I just Google "zootopia character concept art" and it comes up with some cool stuff. Other than that I normally go straight from drawing the four legged animal to the animal being upright. Pinterest also has some great stuff, and so does the deviantartist TheShawdowedGrim for feral wolves. Good luck, hope to see some of your art soon!
