    Colored Pencils

    Here's a quick video I did showing how I use pencils: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S2vn_TVBw9c But like the person above me said, it's all a matter of personal technique.

    First Reference Sheet

    A note on style that I want to point out as well is to avoid black and white colouring, because you can't properly shade and highlight them. Use undertones. His fur is sort of rust-coloured, so blue or violet undertones in the black would help them pop. Same with having yellowish undertones on...

    Group Collab: Large-scale Comic Project

    I'm in the process of trying to get a comic started, but I lack the attention span to do the whole thing. I've got characters designed, pages written, plot in progress, but actually drawing the thing is where I get stuck. And then I had an idea, and after a few days of thought, I've decided to...

    seeking some critiques

    REDLINE: http://www.furaffinity.net/view/6208675/ First, it looks funky because of where the image cuts off. Generally, you want to avoid cutting off around the knees and elbows. For one, it leads the eye off in odd directions, and two, it makes the drawing seem unfinished. You're working...

    Discussion: working in variety to anthro heads

    Seconding what's said above, you certainly can change up more than just the muzzle or ears. Depending on how human you want your character to look, you can even change up width, how the eyes are set, how gaunt or round the face is, et cetera. There's also the oft-overlooked factor of age. Most...

    Critique and stuffff

    I'm actually going to disagree with Arshes slightly, on the topic of colour. It's very green. Working on one colour palette is not necessarily a bad thing -- I do it frequently -- but the green seems to be all hovering around the same value. The desaturation of the background trees is good. It...

    That Simblet book is amazing, and I like seeing that other people are using it. The one thing I notice about the nude is that the angles are very harsh, especially in her hips. Something about her shoulders, particularly the right, seem vaguely disconnected as well. I think it comes down to the...

    The chute still seems a bit off because the perspective doesn't really line up. It looks like she's going off in one direction whilst the shaft is facing a different one. I'm also not quite fond of the inverted saw blade effect you have going round the edges. I'm not quite sure what it's trying...

    Bristle's Digital Commission

    I'll take one. Let me get some references together. :D

    I tried something different

    What? WHAT? WHAT!? You have GOT to be trolling. Seriously. You can't work out how to do a sketch layer in Photoshop? Sketch brushes? As long as you use a different layer to ink, you can use whatever tool and colour you want to sketch.

    Fishing for critique

    I'm not sure that the colouring style really supports the lack of outlines. It makes everything, her head especially, seem disconnected. I'm also not a fan of how shaggy she is, especially on her arms and legs. Even though nature doesn't care for an animal's gender, our minds do. That level of...

    Looking for a critique/redline~

    To start, that is amazingly cute. Cherish this, because it doesn't get said often on this board, but I really like this style. There are a few things I can see that could use a bit of work, but they're all fairly minor. Her hands stood out first. There's not a whole lot of internal structure to...

    Zombies and a consulting detective - Need help with flow and comp.

    Points addressed: Got rid of the portrait orientation for the purposes of having a larger area to work with. Ideally, that's what I'd like to keep, but I'm not sure how to make it work. I definitely do not like the square. Adjusted Holmes' arms and added the missing cricket bat. I'm still not...

    I tried something different

    Yeah, and? I used a Pensketch for a few years, before I finally had to replace it because the company went under and you can't get the nibs for it any more. Wacom really only matters if you're doing higher detailed stuff. What you're doing, basic cell shading with sketchy lines, could be done...

    Zombies and a consulting detective - Need help with flow and comp.

    The two guys in the front are not zombies. Should have made that a bit more clear. I'll update in a bit, but I wanted to check up on this before Arthullu thought that I was lunch. But there's a lot of good advice in here, and I'll address it properly in a bit.

    red lines needed please

    Even if you're drawing with biro, you still need to do the form before you do the shape. Everything feels disconnected because you've drawn the clothes and the body at the same time. Get rid of the biro and get a pencil. Work on undersketches, and draw the whole body before adding the clothes...

    Lacking uniqueness :/

    Style comes about from what you know, what you don't know, and your own interpretation. I find copying styles to be the most pain-in-the-arse thing on the planet, and can't stand when I get a commission that's asking me to do Disney style or whatever. I don't see the world the way Disney does...

    Stiff Joints

    lrn2multi-quote. Why has this been such a problem in here lately? Cripes. And I'm glad that I came in here and gave this thread another look. One more name to add to my list of people to ignore when they come in asking for help, because it's obvious that I'll just be wasting my time.

    Zombies and a consulting detective - Need help with flow and comp.

    I'm doing a thing for someone who has requested BBC!Holmes and Watson fighting zombies. I'm trying to go for a sort of 'hero' pose for the main image, and five cut-out scenes in small frames around the edge. Right now, I'm having issues with the 'hero' pose. It just... isn't working...
