    love those humans.
    but what i meant is just the opposite of the mouse lady. namely a human with mouse attitude,so to speak. you know,to give a human facial characteristics that make us think of him as a fox or whatever else animal.

    edit: f.ex.that guy from harry potter 3,who was the rat.

    I really like your work. Drawing cute animals is a much more marketable skill than drawing decapitated babies with robot arms. It also has a greater range of expression. That is to say, there's an extent to which we can all relate to the outraged horse wrestling with the puddle of disgusting ick. I feel the same way when I talk to my bank. By contrast I have nothing in common with three headed cybernetic mutants. So I have a good deal more admiration for what you do than a lot of other stuff here.

    You asked about people being disturbed by anthropomorphizing. Cartoon animals are very comfortable. They're humanized enough to be relatable yet they retain those personalities of animals that we find endearing. "Furries" on the other hand, can be bothersome because they're more like human/animal hybrids.
    I couldn't sit through "a shark's tale" because they chopped off Will Smith's head and stuck it on a fish and expected me to think it was cute. It wasn't cute it was macabre. I looked at it and said "My God that's Will Smith's head! With a fish tail sticking out of it!" But that's just me.

    redpaint - Thanks dude - I'll take that under advisement Guys deserve to be drawn well too y'know!

    Car2nist - lol, yeah I should change the title every now and then. Thanks!

    alexx - Thanks!

    the_allejo05 - high compliment indeed! I don't mind at all - this forum is for learning, isn't it?

    Canifex - oooh, okay, I got you. sure! I'll try something like that. Should be a challenge.

    Gilead - Thank you! I'm sure three headed cybernetic mutants are marketable in the gaming industry, right? So...would you classify what I've done 'macabre' or more like Disney's animated Robin Hood? Always one of my favorite movies. (I didn't like Sharktale either...too 'hip')

    Blahm - At this point I'd have to move to Australia I think - that's where Disneytoon studio is. Nothing wrong with Australia! I'm working on it.

    You know, I rarely look at the sketchbook forum so I just now noticed I have 4 stars! Thanks guys!

    sigh. I think I need a break...a day or two...the creative juices are running very thin...sorry.

    No I wouldn't call any of your stuff macabre at all. But the Furry type critters, like the girly at the bottom of your July 11th post, are pushing it in my view. That's getting to be less like an anthropomorphic animal and more like a girl with an animal's head. Which can still be great for Fantasy and mythological stuff, I don't dislike it, but it's moving out of the cute territory and into the groutesque.
    Groutesque can be wonderfull and in a strange way even sexy if done right, but it won't wind up on any Hallmark Christmas cards or Disney cartoons.

    Gilead - Grotesque! That's not good. Well, it's not intended to be 'cute' - the stories associated with her and others like her are definitely not 'cute'. I wouldn't intend for them to be anywhere near Disney-ish stuff. Thank you for sharing your opinion - I really appreciate it!

    Gloominati - Thanks! Keep posting yourself - you're doing great!

    Okay, I seem constitutionally unable to take a break. I did these last night waiting in line for Harry Potter 6. I am such a geek. Couple portraits from ref and a horse of course!

    Nice update!
    I like the expressions in your faces, they look really great.
    It fascinates me that for example the wolves look so loose as if you can just bash them out of your pencil. You know what you're doin, man! great!

    The wolves are looking great. It's a very small thing, but the front legs seem to be a bit too smooth. It was pointed out that they seem a bit long, but when a wolf has its front leg straightened, it's pretty much just like that. I'm thinking though, that a little splotch of fur could break up the uniformity so it doesn't appear too tube'ish.

    Also, I know animals get so much of the attention here, but your humans, they're fantastic!

    Great stuff!

    bumskee - thanks! Well, not really - not like Fellah's. 'I try and I try - there's just no respect!' hehe, jk. I love the Emperor's New Groove - such a zany movie! Anyway, wolves' legs are pretty long, but I might have over exaggerated. Thanks for stopping by!

    Carnifex - I take it I found a critter you particularily like? Glad to oblige! And thanks for the correction...but I honestly don't mind!

    Gloominati - hehe, I don't mind. I call everyone 'dude' anyway. Probably shouldn't...

    Craig - Thanks! They need more work tho' - so I like to pop them in evey now and then. You're right about the wolf - I have a tendacy to draw things too smooth. Why can't I render like Fellah? :cries:

    Okay Carnifex - snarling wolves! And some humor...sorry, I just couldn't help it...

    Welcome to the Zoo!**Mucha**May 26th**

    If it's too faint, the wolf is whimpering: "Can I stop now? My lips are hurting!"
