Your stuff is really good. We're about the same level with very similar styles! :3

If I were to guess you prefer freeballing, mindful of anatomy in your head and only very loosely sketched out beforehand on canvas, would I be correct? I bet you got that way drawing with a pen exclusively your whole life?

(I'm assuming a lot but your stuff looks so similar to mine.)

Everything looks fine to me. Nothing looks unintentional. I wish I could color like you! I'm new to using digital art programs so I haven't developed that skill at all so far.

Is the bull neutered?. I would think that his genitalia would be more visable. Also I would have made the bull's tail smaller/shorter.

Thank you! I’d love to see your work.

That’s pretty much it in a nut shell haha, nice work! Definitely drawing with pen a lot. Digital art didn’t exist when I strarted to draw in 1992 (aged 9) so it was literally sketch on paper lol

Thanks so much for this awesome feedback! You’ll get there with the coloring and once you do you’ll breeze through it!

Be kind! It's in sketch stage so it's all rough and a lot of stuff will most likely be changed, like making the feet better and stuff... 3:

Just strange that we draw so similarly, it was blowing my mind a little!

EDIT: I don't know if this needs to be labeled NSFW. He's going to have a skin tight space-suit on so it's not technically nude..?

You are right, we are very similar! Your anatomy is brilliant :3
If it’s not nude I don’t think it’s breaking any forum rules

I start with the head but I draw a skeleton map first, starting with the head, neck and shoulders and working my way down. Drawing a “flow of action” line to help with direction

I basically draw stick figures to get my proportions right and then add more details.

I saw a tutorial one time where they drew a head first, then a line for the spine and carry it through all the way down to the tip of the tail, making sure the spine/tail sticks almost down in between the butt-cheeks at the base. I always try and make a skeleton map when I start but it's never very much use to me, so I usually just work may way away from the bum with extremely limited skeleton mapping.

We all have ways that work best for us individually :3 if it works for you, do it, The end result and the fun you have is all that matters.

Your style is great and you're going for diversity (poses, characters, corpulence) in your drawing which is really good :)

In my opinion you're doing great as it is and you'll improve steadily just by keeping this diversity. But if you need some specific pointers, I'll say to work on the hands. They lack logic of joints and palm like in your last one, or for the fox at the left of the fox trio.

If you're looking to improve, without more specific input on your part (like what you wanna be able to draw), I'll suggest backgrounds, clothes/accessories and exaggerated expressions. If you wonder why, it's respectively for volumes/materials/perspective, volume/materials/creativity and volume/creativity/accuracy. At least that's my view about it :)

Anyway, really great drawings! Keep up the good work :)

I am not too sure what you mean here. The fox's hands on the left in fox trio has palms - so maybe I am not looking in the right place? The reason there is lack of finger joints is because the hands are meant to be very cartoony (similar to that of Mickey Mouse). However I would love to discuss this further (if you are happy to) because I could be missing something that you see and I don't

Yes I agree I really need to work on these things. I have started doing some backgrounds lately but I am still not very confident (eg the fun workout link). As for clothes - very much my weak area lol. I find clothing difficult.

Thanks so much for your feedback and I hope to hear back from you some more regarding my hands.



Saw a chubby male porn

I'm almost interested in getting a commission :V
Hahaha awesome thank you. Believe it or not that was my first ever attempt at an obese character.

@Gem-Wolf
Here you go for the hands:

Sorry for my bad writing skills with tablets -_-

I suggest to you this video that might help:
I can’t understand your choice of words (eg: fingers bent with siblings when not tense - and - too much bent joints - and - higher above fingers rounder)

However your edits on the art I can see where I went wrong and I appreciate that :3 I will watch the video too thank you very much for your help *hugs*

@Gem-Wolf You're welcome!
Well I'm sorry, English is not my native language but I'm trying my best. That's also why I did a picture ^^" Didn't know how to explain it without visual help!

So "fingers bent with siblings when not tense" -> try to bend your little finger, you'll see that the finger next to it will bent too. That's what I meant.

"too much bent joints" it was "too much bent - joints" - the finger is too much bent backward (towards the upper part of the hand), seems strange in this pose. "joints" was because the joint can't usually bent that much backward, just to tell you to remember to think about the joints and their direction even without drawing them.

"higher above finger, rounder" was for the line you're doing for the junction between the phalanges and metacarpals, you draw it really low on the upper part of the hand, which flattens the hand and breaks the volume of the fingers a little. Rounder because if you curve it a little more it gives a sense of roundness and volume too.

Hope that helps, and glad to see that you find the video useful :)
