    Sci Fi Anthro Style

    Style I'm trying to develop, science fiction anthropomorphic animals. I use Art Rage Studio for line work, then throw it in Gimp. I use a little 3D when I must.

    Bright acidic colors =/= good picture.

    It's clear that you are aiming for the cute animated cartoon style, but you are making the typical mistake of trying to imitate the line drawing instead of thinking of structure, form and anatomy. There are multiple other problems here. Get Loomis, Norling and Blair, and practice structural drawing. In pencil, on paper, from life, start with boxes, eggs and teapots with a single light source.

    Your reply shows just how much you misunderstand what style is in the first place. Think of it this way, style is the decor of your house. The paint, the curtains, and so forth. Now how far are you going to get without actual walls, floors, etc. to put that stuff on?

    It's the same with style. Style goes on top of substance, and you show that you're resistant to learning that substance the same way pretty much every good artist does. Arenhaus has some very good advice there, especially Preston Blair's Cartoon Animation. I'd also suggest The Vilppu Drawing Manual by Glenn Vilppu, but any of those sources is a good start.

    Unless you're not serious about getting better of course, then you can feel free to imitate the artists over at Fur Affinity. Your call.

    Was that sarcasm? It was kind of incoherent.

    You shouldn't bother about style at all. Styles grow organically or are designed, but in either case you should have a skill in the actual drawing, you know. If you don't know how to draw or have gaps in your fundamental skills, it will show no matter what style you try to create.

    Not every style uses anatomy from human figures, this style is supposed to be exaggerated, it's not supposed to be based on realistic figures. I'm sure you know this but it seems I upset you and you are trying to troll me. I've seen your art, it's very good, but it's all blatantly ripped off LOL. You seem to miss the point of what art is. I'm done responding, you speak for the whole website.

    Don't be arrogant. Your making an argument from ignorance. All styles from professional artists even if they aren't realistic stem from the knowledge of realism. Otherwise you going to have no direction. Don't come on a site and asked to be critiqued and then spin it around when you are the one who doesn't know what your talking about.

    There's like 10 thousands styles of art. This site focuses on 2 or 3 styles art. That's OK, but what's sad is you can't admit to it, and you criticize anyone else with a different style. You're all not fooling anyone. I didn't expect praise, this is exactly what I expected. So have fun, getting your paycheck, drawing forms, bullshit artists lol.

    You weren't critizised for "style", but for the lack of fundamentals in your work. Fundamentals are universal to all (representational) styles. That's why they're called fundamentals, you know.

    It is clear you are offended as you snapped instantly at the initial critique. I believe Arenhaus gave you sound advice. Know the fundementals and you will be a better artist, there is no arguing with that, it is fact. Look at the early work of Picasso before he started Cubism, that is why none doubted his style. I don't personally like Cubism but respect the man regardless.

    You don't have to agree with a crit but you should try not to get offended and conduct yourself in a better manner, you will be both a better person and a better artist for it. Remember you don't have to agree with the crit, which is fair enough, but people are only trying to help and you should respect that.

    I would like to give you a crit, but I know nothing about the style, however I still wish you success with your art.

    Your composition and colour sucks big time. You have been given excellent advice. If you think this site only has 2 styles, why the hell did you bother posting? Lurk moar, read tons of threads. Come back when you actually want to learn.
