Michen's Furry artwork [May contain mild nudity/swearing]
« on: February 07, 2017, 06:14:34 am »
As per the rules of this site, I'll only post artwork of furry nature here.


Here's one of my first drawings I made since I started drawing as a hobby. It doesn't look too shabby for a beginner. Yeah, that's all I got. It pictures Michen, my snow leopard fursona. I'll redraw it later, though it might take a while before I can start with it...


 I had an art trade with Firox from The Furry Forums, and here's Flareon from my part. I tried my best, but there are still a lot of things off. Guess that just means I can learn a lot just from this drawing I can take with me for my next drawing (that's why I made the art trade in the first place).

Constructive feedback is more than welcome, which is why I created this in the first place. These are fairly old drawings, but I figured I can still learn from them anyways.

It's always nice to see new artists and their work.

Keep up the good work. :orbunny:

Sorry for the long wait. I tried to play around with shades a bit, it's not very well done nor very visible on the scan, so I'll check how to solve that.

This drawing is recognisable as Jesus on the cross for some, except it seems... off. Lightly said. There are some Christians who don't like what I did here. I chose to do it this way with a reason, that being that this simply appeals more to me. I also did this because I knew not everyone liked it (I actually wanted to make it even worse, but a friend advised me not to). Some Christian groups sometimes critisize other Chhristian groups with disastrous results, sometimes with the best intentions. My personal faith seem to clash with what other Christians believe at times. Here in the Netherlands Christians in general are getting more critique from non-Christians. So yeah, there you go.

Constructive critisism is welcome.

I wanted to make something else, but that appeared to be too difficult to actually complete for me. So I decided to make something else instead. This is what came out, and I really like the result. Arms and legs still are a problem, which were the biggest problem. Let me know which 'foot' looks better.

As always, constructive criticism is more than welcome.

Your right foot looks more plantigrade, where as your left foot looks more digitigrade.

Also, hands typically narrow at the wrist before widening into a hand. It would give yours more definition.

Women typically have wider hips than men. If you taper them closer to the width of the torso he might appear more masculine.

Keep up the good work! As for your picture of Jesus: Others can go suck an egg. It's your relationship with God. You are accountable for it, not them. People have been depicting Jesus for nearly 2000 years, and all of them are wrong (nobody knows what he looked like. I seriously doubt he was some saintly looking white guy).

I wass actually trying to create a female lioness. You know how God is usually portrayed as male? I wanted to focus more on God's female side, because God has that as well. Well, that and a male lion is harder to draw. I should mention it more clearly next time.
People seem to draw Jesus with their own cultural background in mind, so I'm not really doing anything new there, since the furry fandom is kind of an entire subculture in it's own way. That makes my art just as valid as theirs.

Keep posting your work. I am glad to see your getting some
feed back.

Men like to feel they control society.  So the belief that God is
a male would follow. Personally I doubt a God would be limited
to any gender.

While I agree with this, Jesus was male. If you are trying to depict a female feline, hmmm. What if you lengthen the torso a little bit and make the shoulders a little less broad?

Funnily enough, 'God the Father' chose to represent Themselves as a male despite being genderless. Or both, I don't know. Does it even work the same for someone who isn't physical? Either way, They have both a male and female side who are equally big. I just refer to God with 'Them'. Not to be politically correct, but just because it makes more sense to me. And it has become kind of a habit by now.

Yes, Jesus was male. But Jesus was also human and not an anthro lioness. Also, John 19:23 suggest Jesus was crucified naked, but he's depicted as covered with a cloth, like, everywhere.

I'm not knocking your depiction. I like it being 'different', because different wakes people up.

Jesus's modest depictions were either made or are modified by a prudish time late. I want to say it was the Renaissance, but I could be wrong. Early art did show him naked because you are right, it is suggested that is how he was crucified, and how people typically were crucified at the time. So if you want to make her naked, then do so. Show where she was stabbed in the side, and where the blood ran down and caked onto her from her many wounds. If you want to show it to us, I'm sure it would be welcomed in the adult section. Adult here spans a lot of things, not just the ones people search when they're lonely.

That's great to hear, because I love to be different sometimes. It's part of who I am, I think differently than most people. I see other options, other obstacles and I have a different focus on things. Some of those different focusses can be very interesting. They can make for great artwork if I have the courage to make it. And here, I showed that courage.
Don't worry about me and the adult area. I know what I can find there, and also what I can add there.

As with all artists we depict our work to suit ourselves. Not to others
unless your paid to do so.

The main thing to remember in choosing a gender, race or species. You
need to follow physical norms. Otherwise the viewer will be confused.

Now if your drawing a fantasy creature then your allowed to do pretty
much as you wish. Anthropomorphic creatures tend to follow a mix of
human and animal. Then norms for both will likely be needed.

So it's a good idea to study animal and human structures of both genders.
 Even if your drawings are aimed only as cartoons, and not realistic.

If you are after some sound advice on the way things are to look, pointers and what to look for jump on YouTube and have a look at 'Scribble Kibble - What level is your art?' Many of the other episodes in the series give lots of pointers too and will also point to other peoples work for review and advice.

Like the artwork, the last one you did reminds me a lot of Lilith. If you are after a more female representation of someone on the cross I would recommend checking out that. Neon Genesis Evangelion and Rebuild of Evangelion are good reference points for Lilith. If you want a more biblical reference though a lot of it has been removed or simply ignored from modern literature but its out there.

Oh right, I forgot about that YouTube video. I've seen it before, but rewatching it can never hurt. I'll have another look at the channel later.

Sorry for the late update, we had a few problems with the wireless network in the past time.

It's Michen again. This is probably the drawing I'm going to remake forever to be able to see better how my drawing improves over time. There's now a bandage around the right front paw, and the scarf is now light purple instead of blue. The head is way too small now that I look at it (my dad commented on that too), but I think overall they came out nicely. I'm quite happy with it.

As always, constructive critisism is welcome.

Heeey! It's been too long since I uploaded something!

Meet Zila, a female character I wanted to use in RPs and future art work. I tried to do some shading for this art piece, but after a while I just gave up on that. And the colour pencils we have here are uhh... still the ones of bad quality. Needless to say it didn't quite come out the way I wanted it to. :/

Anyways, after finishing it I still liked the restults so I'll upload it anyways. So let me know what you think. And now that this is finished, I should start on the next one so I can upload more than 1 drawing every 2 months for a change.
