Either fursuit design is ok, but if it were me, I'd go with the grey. Simply because a black suit design will make you hotter since black will attract sunlight and heat like a sponge.  x_x You'll end up cooking yourself to death in a black furred fursuit.
:O We don't want that to happen
*sniff* *sniff* What's that smell? Oh, Sciex is roasting... in his fursuit oven.

Yay. Finally posting a drawing after FOREVER!

I did this drawing while listening to owl city and testing a pencil to see if it is worthy for the harshness of exams (it was how I relaxed before exam day). (which I happened to have to write in pen due to rules) I can finaly upload my work without my parents having to see it  :D. I took this pic with my Android tablet and I might of changed the brightness a bit? idk..

Let me criticize myself even though this was a quick sketch.. Looks good, right hand is a little weird, proportions are good except for left elbow looking bendy. Head is angled too much but I think it looks good anyway. The t-shirt was drawn well, maybe needs some small creases for detail and the right ear is too small. Since it is closer to the non-existent camera it should be larger. Once again, need to work on making a pose other than standing front on doing nothing. However, I do like this pic :)

Sciex, that's pretty good - especially the body proportions.  I like how you furred the arms, so I'm taking notes on that. ;)
If you do a digital version, can I suggest maybe making the head a little bigger and rounding the ears?

ok.. so I started doing a sketch on the back on my English assessment and of course it turned into a drawing.

He's supposed to be lying down on grass etc. :)

I'm pretty happy with this drawing so far. Criticism please :D I want to know what corrections I should make before I shade it. What do you guys think? I think I might need to make the Abs look a bit larger. It doesn't seem to fit and it makes the body look to skinny (when it isn't)

Also, he is supposed to be lying down on the ground relaxing. Looks at the second half of Misers post on the previous page* I'll look into that :P

Yea. I'm going to move the snout more front on. Atm it looks crooked. I want him to be looking up so it's not at the right

Edit: after standing in front of the mirror (I really need to do some drawings based off reference photos) to see what curves go where I have realised that I have made quite a few mistakes (all of it. Lol). I'll just redraw this picture on a piece of paper and plan the anatomy out. The angle of the elbow needs to be allot less. It's a good thing this thread is about learning to draw :)

Over all it's a good drawing for someone that's learning.
You should see some of my early work.

There are a few things it needs, but shading would help
it look better.  Just keep drawing. You probably should
work on heads more. Then body structure..

Keep up the good work. :orbunny:

I really need to do some tutorial some time XD

anyway.. I just drew this at school on a desk when I got bored.. left it for a day.. decided to trace it onto a plastic sleeve and then traced and modify it onto a piece of paper.


The legs look att weird cause I don't know how to draw legs :P It's alright though ^^

Edit: Just for those who want to know what a sitting wolf should look like. Here's a link: http://fc00.deviantart.net/fs71/i/2010/240/f/2/sitting_pup_wolf_48_by_snakegirlshilach-d2xhc3e.jpg

I should really try drawing with reference pics some time :P

Very nice - your art is getting better with each drawing; I bet if you used a reference image, you could produce some pretty good sketches ;)
Also, for the legs, you might be able to give them a more natural look by making the back merge more with the body... I'm not entirely sure how to say what I'm thinking there.

Reference pictures are always good to use. Disney artists go out
in the field to view, and sketch real animals. They use reference
models in their studios as well.

Drawing well from memory comes with lots of practice.

Keep up the good work. :orbunny:

I occasionally play with Photoshop now and then and I edited one of Akita's drawings. (I'm posting this in my thread with her permission)

original drawing: http://forums.furtopia.org/artwork-announcements/akita's-art-journey!/


Modified colors a bit, changed the eyes a bit and used the dodge tool to remove most of the dark lines in the white fur, made the glasses look as they were reflecting light to cover up the mess I made with editing the colors, cropped and added a white surrounding with a large soft brush


duplicated the layer, applied the oil painting effect and used transparency to get a mix of the two


Added some shadow with the burn tool


As for my own art I haven't been drawing anything lately. I should be getting my stylus for my android tablet within a month.. but that's not stopping me from drawing because I do have pencils and paper. (I'll find some motivation sometime)

Just testing some head drawing :P



Trying to follow this tutorial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uNsIEysbaGs

I can't draw the first angled head (I've been trying) so I'm going to practice that. On the image above the first head is from that video, the second is from another video and the last is one I just randomly drew. (The last one is lioness or panther or something)

I turned this drawing into my new avatar


Yay! :D New avatar. I have to fix the snout though.. It's too thin currently.  (Hopefully I'll eventually be able to make one that's not side on)

I actually kinda like the first angled one better for some reason...  That angle can be really challenging sometimes.

And good job on the new avatar by the way. ;)

I didn't scan my images. I captured them with the camera on my tablet. I used Photoshop and my Wacom tablet to create my avatar as I'm still waiting for my styli for my android tablet to arrive. But yea.. you can scan images in and then trace them :P

Edit:
I've retraced the muzzle ^^

So the very left is the drawing, the middle is tracing, and the last one is when it's been coloured.

Second edit:
I made the other image into a digital image:

Your doing well Sciex . You might try shading a your colored work. Shading can make
a colored drawings look really nice.
  
It's always good to try new things, especially if they are  hard to do. :orbunny:

I'll only use the rainbow flag version where it's safe to do so :P

This was made with this outline (created by FelisRandomis): http://www.furaffinity.net/view/11657593/

The color design of this version of my fursona was done by raverix and slightly modiified.
