Drawing The Aged
« on: March 08, 2009, 05:48:44 pm »
I might not get much help, but one thing I am trying to do when  I occasional draw Furry character is not to  make them look only like 20 something year olds.  Unless I am going to do a 20 year old character. It is one of my main pet peeves about furry art. The question is who do I approach and older character say 65 rather than 25.

I'd say more ragged fur around the ear area and some fur discolouration in places.


Please give 'em a click ^..^

I had to draw an aged Equitaur a loooongwhile back(1st few months after I 1st started drawing) . I ended up making him bony with long stringy hair to show ancientness in him.


Days Past(an ancient equitaur reviews his past conquests)
My suggestion would be to look at aged pics of both humans and animals.

I haven't gone much beyond your age (about middle).  I'm allready pulling up character lines and silver, personally.  i think I've had some silver since 30...it even scared my mother.  it's hard to conceive "mature" appearing furs, although old people seem to pop up every now and then.  don't forget, the time-in greymuzzles (rather than the chronological ones) are thirties, now, AND this is a young-people's fandom.

Sav: that pic musta been back there, allright.  all you needed was a little more spine height.  I look at an old-man mule every day.
