    The By You/For You Policy

    Nylak, I was thinking the same thing about the idea collaboration. Also, not every piece uploaded by a commissioner is also in the original artist's gallery.

    The By You/For You Policy

    As an artist, I like it when people post the work I do for them. I also enjoy looking at the galleries of patrons to see what else has been created for them. Some patrons have cool characters or fun ideas and I enjoy seeing everyone's interpretation of the ideas! As long as the posters are...

    Fox anatomy alrigh?

    This is really sweet Eos. I love the coloring so far! Attached is a redline I did for you. I hope the notes are clear enough for you. You are on the right track. A few strokes of the pencil will create the right curves you need. Watch the proportions and work on your paw anatomy. I hope this...

    Critique this please?

    I can't see it either. Don't assume everyone can see mature artwork, a lot of folks have the filter on.

    Comment mine, I'll comment yours.

    I think everything Stratadrake said is great except the smudge tool. Don't use it, it looks bad. I would like to add: Never use a completely desaturated gray in piece that has color. It looks dead. Don't use flat white and don't use straight black. Have some color in your "grays" and it looks...

    Before you post your Character - Check those Proportions!

    If you are curious how other artists compensate for a digitigrade stance, measure it out! How many heads tall is it? At which head or measurement do the knees fall? The ankles? I don't recommend copying another artist's specific proportions. There is often a lack of consistency. Sometimes...

    The tail and the clothes

    I imagine that anthros would have holes in their pants/skirts that button up around the tail! Real life equivalents are dog pants and diapers. If you look them up, you can see how the fabric has been built to accommodate a tail. Apply this to a skirt design and there you go.

    They are only suggestions, like a reference photo only not accurate. :3

    quick Critique

    Howdy! So I see that this guy is supposed to look a little emo. Ok! First of all, the proportions you have going are off. You have the hands right up at the waist, even though they seem to be hanging by his sides. If you stand up, you will notice that your fingertips are about mid thigh. The...

    I'm far from the best inker out there, but here is a quick exampe of how varying the line weight can give your piece a boost.

    Different Art Programs?

    I use Corel Painter. It mimics real media so you can paint as if you are using oils or watercolors. It's a very intuitive program to use. However it costs quite a bit. You can download a 30 day trial to play with from the website...

    human anatomy?

    Don't limit yourself on learning just male anatomy! Learn it all. I strongly recommend looking at the Andrew Loomis books. He was a great teacher, very easy to understand and chock full of wonderful advice on everything from color theory to composition and of curse, anatomy...

    It depends on what you are looking to do. Right now your lines are very clean and create a flat, cut out looking image. This is perfectly fine in its own right. If you want a bolder look, determine where your light is coming from and have thin or even non existent lines on the light side, and...

    I'm obsessive. Are these legs lopsided?

    It looks better now there there is a bit of bend to the knees. The back paw is still a bit far back in the picture plane, it would be floating and a bit too short because the upper leg is a bit too short. But it does look much more solid than before! :3

    Where Should I Start?

    Just look at any animal that sits and see where the tail goes!
