Don’t give up if your first drawings aren’t perfect. Art is not something that can be learned overnight. Drawing is a skill that must be practiced and supplemented through observation, so keep a sketchbook, and take it with you everywhere. Look around you, draw what you see. Visit the zoo and sketch animals. Sketch people at the mall. The more you draw, the better you’ll get. See this article [link] for more animal sketching tips and resources. Good luck!

Which... what? All of my art is pencil lines with digital coloring in Photoshop CS3 if that's what you're asking. :)

Wow! Just got your book Draw Furries about a week or so ago. Helped a lot with some of the things I've been having trouble with. I had no idea that you had an account here though! Your artwork is amazing

Oh, thank you! I'm so glad. :) I have a sequel book called "Draw More Furries" coming out to bookstores in November. If you're interested, I'm currently taking preorders for the book on my website. [link] As a bonus, I'm giving away original art from the book with every preorder. :)

Oh, wow! I had no idea about that! I eagerly look forward to the book And I'll definitely keep the preorder in mind, just in case I can manage to figure out how to order things off of the internet.

Do you have any tips on how to get an interesting pose looking in proportion? I look at a lot of references but I still can't really imagine how to make something different look right.

Oh, good question. If I was drawing an animal I hadn't drawn before, I'd do several pages of warm-up sketches from photographs or videos (preferable so you can see how they move) to feel out their form, proportions and personality before moving onto thumbnail poses and the final illustration. The warm-up sketches can really help loosen you up and get you ready.

As for proportions, try measuring the size of the head to other body parts. Try to find landmarks that you can use to double-check yourself. Also try flipping your drawing (by holding it up to a mirror or shining the light through it to see it from the other side). This will give you a fresh look on the drawing and may reveal problem areas or lopsidedness that you didn't notice.

Good luck! :heart:
