All looks nice. Akita.  You should try some dressed up furry characters
yourself. I rather like seeing furries dressed in human clothing.

Hope you have a nice holiday weekend. :orbunny:

Beautiful! You have a great art style! :D

I'm gonna take a stab in the dark and guess the band is Blur. :P

Thank you everyone for the awesome compliments!

To Old Rabbit, Even though I love drawing other characters in clothes, I would prefer Keito to be a feral character! :)

And to Timberwuff, sadly it isn't Blur (Even though I love Damon Albarn), but I get where you are coming from!
Here's the hint , the album is called "The Beginning"

Ohh I know this why didn't I realize it at first(haven't listened to them in a LONG time). I have this album on my tablet, is it "The Black Eyed Peas"?

*ring ring ring ring* Boom boom pow! :D Amducious guessed it! Yes,  it's Black Eyed Peas!


I promised that I'll do a parody of your choice.  What you would like to see? :) (E.g your fursona in an iconic picture)

Hmmm the cover of the game dlc from Dishonored "Brigmore Witches"  . I was actually surprised I remembered it's been ages(literally like 3 years no joke!) since I listened to them!!

I'll start on it Monday! I want to take a Sunday off :) . This will be a fun challenge! One last question, there are two characters in the cover. What should I do then?

And I know? The last time I listened to them when the album "The Beginning" was released! It was nice coming back though. More music to listen to :D

Daud is the one being attacked and the woman is Delilah you can put her as you if you want or somebody else's fursona.(basically replacing Daud with Amducious and Delilah with who ever you want or yourself.)

Holy wow! All three of those requests you did look amazing! :D
I especially like the piece you did for The Wise One, the bulky proportions seem very appropriate for a tiger, especially the feet! I really like how you're using cel-shading, too! The stark, polygonal contrast between shaded and light areas makes it look crisp! I want to say it would make a very fitting portrait for a character in a video game because of that touch.

...And now I'm thinking how cool a furry version of Halo would be. Wolves in power armor seem very fitting, for some reason.

Thank you so much Photalysis! Your comments is always well explained and lovely to read! :D
I was thinking about working in a game/art industry either as an Animator or an Illustrator! But that's my future plans . When I will finish high-school, which will occur in three years , I consider taking a 3 years animation course and later 2 years Illustration/Character design course in college! I just hope that I will be good enough to find a job in the industry *wistful look* . For now, I try my best to practice .

Here's my first animation ever! It was a simple running/jumping cycle of my friend's character! It was a test run with pixel animation! I consider making more animations soon!:


I also did a quick animated icon in my toony style! :D :


20 minutes character design of my friend's character, Zirus!:


This was a personal piece which I tried doing different style of shading, but I failed utterly! I went for more touching piece since I was feeling down at the time:


Amducious's parody! I went for a more painterly style :D :


And a piece for my boyfriend's birthday! I also wrote him a poem  :-[ :


More to come! :D

You've developed a very nice style with the kind of glossy/fuzzy high contrast method you've been using.

It all looks really nice.

Your work is improving all the time Akita.

I was referring to furry characters for clothing practice. Your
feral characters are fine as is.

You did a nice job on the animation too  :orbunny:

Great job on the running animation, and Is that salmon I see in the second animation? I had some of that last night (:. Terrific detail on all of them, especially on  Amducious's parody. You've improved a great deal, keep it up!

At this rate, I have little doubt you'll have a competitive skillset by the time you have a degree. That is my conservative estimate. You've got the passion for it, now you only need to let it take you where you need to go! I only wish I had started drawing as soon as you did.

The animation immediately brought back fond memories of the Lion King tie-in for the Genesis.

I like your new avatar best of these new drawings. It looks cute and has good taste in seafood! :D

As for the piece you posted that you're not happy with... It's very good that you're willing to experiment and share it with us! Trying new things is how you grow as an artist, if you are afraid to do so you it will only hinder you. When you hold back, you're held back.

Guys, I cannot thank you enough for all your amazingly inspiring compliments about my work! That's what pushes me forward!
I really appreciate them all! I wish I could write to you individually, but I'm feeling really sick . I am really grateful for your support nonetheless!


So this is my crappy attempt at digital art  :P :D . Oh well, I will learn soon enough! :


More to come!

Some of you know this drawing from last year. It was my first full attempt at digital art.

I wanted to redo this picture, as I thought it had potential if I tried enough. This took like 2-3 days , 5 hours a day . Do you think that I have improved?
I learned about SAI texture option, and it is great to use as a substitute for custom brushes!:


I just wanted to say. NEVER give up on your art, work hard and you will improve!

I'm sorry that I haven't posted in a while, I was feeling really sick to do anything.

More to come! :D

This is off the charts amazing, a huge improvement from the original. I think you did very well on this restoration!
:) :) :) Reminds of when I restore some of my guns that they look totally different after, and I see this in this art piece, totally changed.(kinda made me think of that)

really nice job on the newest one. the improvement between those to pieces is amazing (they look like they are from different artist)
if it wasnt as fluffy and the lighting wasnt as beautiful then it would look like a photo ^^

Your doing very well Akita. Digital art just takes a bit of practice. Otherwise it's much
the same as using pencils with a good drawing pad.  Of course it's a lot easier to erase.  :D

Keep up the nice work. :orbunny:
