    Your animals are very expressive with their own personality. The studies have been coming along well, too.

    With that said, I think you should be more careful with your lines. Right now it looks like you are "petting" them. The various sketches you did of the cats and such are much cleaner. I can read them better, if that makes sense. Just try to develop more confidence in your line work and make sure they all have a purpose.

    Post up the color pencil work when you're done! Keep drawing.

    You have some really cute animals in here. If you want cleaner lines then maybe you could try a harder pencil for that. I noticed that using 3b or 5b is good for shadowing but not so much for putting down clean sketches. When geo advised me to use 2h i really saw a big difference. Also its important to sharpen your pencil a lot to get cleaner lines, if you use a soft pencil you will need to sharpen a lot more.

    Hey, i wanted to suggest to you the gesture tool from pixellovely you can choose all kinds of animals also.

    keep up the work. and yeah you are totally right about me drawing too light.
    i think its just some fear of putting down lines that you cant remove afterwards. This and the fact that i use a 2h pencil.

    Your cartooning in those animals is so awesome. They really catch that lively, Disney-in-a-good-way vibe. Bring back the coloured pencils! They're a great medium for colour practise, as long as you blend them together, use strokes of complimentary colours etc.

    You're on a good track, get in plenty of practise. That portrait of the dog in post #22 is lovely.

    First I want to say I love your avatar pic! And yes like others have said, your animals are looking really good. The people can use more work, but that just takes practice, just keep studying from Loomis, etc, photo refs and the like and it'll come
    Not sure if anyone responded about turning a grayscale to a color image, but add the color to another layer and play around with the different layer types, mainly color, overlay, softlight, then you might want to duplicate them too if needed to double the effect. It really just takes a lot of playing around to get it right. Then when you do get it how you like it, you might want to flatten some of the layers and paint over it with color to boost it more. So that's it in brief... I'm sure there are tutorials around I just do'nt know any off hand.

    Hey there buddy, very nice sketchbook.
    I see that you are very much like to draw animals
    and that is just great. I do not have anything to
    criticize, you are doing fine, you just keep up this
    pace that you are doing. For an advice, I would say
    for you to draw maybe more human figures, but that
    is just a suggestion, not a must of course. Take care
    and keep posting my friend.
