Thank you Flint! I enjoy drawing a lot of stuff happening in my pictures, to make them more interesting.

Nice job texascat :)


After my long break from drawing (today for the first time since April 2011 I took pencil) I made this:

I have to admit, that after so long break it doesn't look so bad, it's rather on same level as my previous works.

Woah, great job jopencjusz!
And you haven't picked up a pencil in that long? I must say I'm very impressed. you should draw more often, you could become a great artist. :)

I also have a little bit more art to post from the past month. Its mostly just Sonic-related art for friends and such, but oh well.

It's at least slightly better than the last one.

Relevant and illustrative of that idea, though a sketch and not necessarily 100% anatomically correct:

Then again, look at Mobi's stuff and compare it to the skull - nothing close to the skull structure. Yet Mobi maintains consistency in style, proportion, and quality.

I think above all, have fun with it, no matter how it looks, and keep working on it to make of it what you want. Practicing and enjoying your work will, IMO, always produce a more genuine product, no matter what that product is. :)

Edit: (Also, I'm going to guess that skull pic TC posted is from a domestic dog.)

Thanks for suggestion texascat, but I'm right now working mostly on general my skills in general and I'd rather prefer to work on my own style, not necessary 100% correct with skull structure.

But in the first place, I'm doing it just for fun and this is most important ;)

I really like drawing uploaded by DingoVolf in Scratch's Fan Comic, it's link to this

I like that much this style, that I've decided to do something very similar to compare and see how it'll works for me. Today I've made sketch and this is final effect:

Image

It could be better, but I think for the first time it's not that bad. I think I'll try to work on this style and do some other, different drawings in it.

What do you think about it?

I did a art trade with a guy on FA called HindruDenver. I made him a song and he drew me a pic of my fursona. I think he's a fantastic artist. He doesn't have near the rep that he deserves.

No problem Texascat ;) And thanks to your changes on my drawing, I see that for sure eyes should be lower. Other things rather are ok, it's only matter of improve right now.

Alastair, this looks great! I'll need to check this guy gallery, because I love this drawing.

That should put a post by Mctwisp at the top, and if you go down a bit it shows grabbing an image and deconstructing the figure. Developing a good feel for building a basic structure from which to bring out a figure is just essential. Don't feel bad about borrowing figures and body shapes from art and pictures to better understand good figure building, just make sure to credit your source.

Wish I did, but you should be able to find all sorts of ref images online. It can get a little technical, but looking up material on mammal anatomy can give some great insight on why they're structured they way they are and what bits go where. For instance, the ears are just huge funnels with articulating musculature that go all the way down to the back and bottom of the skull on the sides where the auditory nerves actually reside.

Thats true, but its also not true. It really depends on your style of drawing.
Me, I have a very cartoony WB-like style, so I focus much more on the overall look of the character. I don't spend time worrying about scull structure or realism, I spend my time trying to make the character look as interesting as possible, while still looking at least a little proportional.

For example:
If a more modern realism type artist where to see this, what would he say?
Image
He'd probably tell me that the character on the left's jaw has totally dislocated from the rest of his body, while the character's jaw on the right has completely dissipated into the rest of his face.
Then he'd throw a basic body structure book at my head and tell me to start learning.

By normal standards, he's completely right, and the characters are all completely out of whack, but by cartoonist standards, the characters would be considered fine. Why? Because they look funny without looking so off model that they aren't recognizable as the same characters. The goal (and challenge) of a cartoonist to is to create expression in the best way possible for the characters being portrayed, while still keeping them recognizable to the audience. That is how I approach my artwork. :)

You're welcome :)

Oh, it's old thread made by Res. Too bad he's not here :(

I've read Mctwisp's post and it's really good stuff! I also need to admit, that for none of my drawings (and probably it's easily to see) used anything to create skeleton, or something like this. I'm always starting from drawing with all details I put on drawings. Don't know why I'm doing like this :P


And here is my new drawing, this time I've tried to draw my fursona's head in different style:

Image


It's my second attempt with different style and I don't know what you think, but personally, I think my drawing looks better at this new in compare to my older drawings. I think I really should work on this more. Maybe later I'll add to this one whiskers.

As I said on DeviantART, you did a much better job on this one in comparison to the last one. The proportions and perspective look really good.
Again, you did a Great job! :D
