I don't sketch often or that well, but I like to do it and am willing to hear from others for tips and hints.(critiques are ok)

Looking good.

Nice thing about art is it's creativity we can share with
others. 

Thanks for sharing.

for some reason this one reminds me of Zoigberg.

Great work! I think that last one is my favorite out of the bunch so far too.

If you like bobcats and anthro, you might like to take a look at the Khajiit race from Skyrim if you're looking for extra ideas. Khajit seem to have a pretty similar facial structure, and there are some cool ideas for patterns and general face sculpting on some of the character models.

Thank you Holt5. I'll look into that. 8)

Reference art is always helpful. I have found many good ideas from looking at
art by others. It's not to copy, but learning how they do details. It's the small
details that changes a good drawing in to a fine one.

Keep up the good work. :orbunny:

Yes it is.. I usually reccomend people practice what they find the most
difficult to draw.  I find this works well when learning. Some people
avoid what's difficult and it can lessen the quality of their work.

You should draw what you enjoy as well. After all that's why we
draw, for the enjoyment of creating art.

Keep up the good work. :orbunny:

Thanks. I've been kinda' busy with classes, so been doin' more haiku than sketches, but I'm stickin' with this last one for now. It kinda' reflects me a lot. Feels like I got that nailed for now.
