you can definately say that we are weirded out by too human beings. just think of a robot that looks like a real human but doesn't act so.imagine the blank stare he gives you-it's DAMN creepy.
about the dragon-aw c'mon you can do better than that! it looks like some manga-fan's pathetic attempt to make cool eyes and a twisted neck-without knowing there are bones underneath. let's try to do this more simple. make a tiger/cat,who is either a)dripping wet or b)stuck in some slime and trying to get out.
show me some! you've got it in you!
Carnifex - I guess so. hm. Didn't like my dragon! *sniff* Ah you're right, I was concentrating more on 'ugly' marks than anatomy. Y'know, some people say cute is hard. No way! Cute is easy - UGLY is hard! Well, I put a foal struggling in some mud. How about that? Or did you want completely covered in mud?
Horse! And kitten! Yay for cute!
Okay, if anyone is interested, I just started this thread in the "Tutorials, Tips and Tricks" subforum: Animated Animals 101
yeah,like that. take it further. make the slime alive,trying to grip and pull the horse down with thin tentacles that hang like spiderwebs. like,make it thin slime.
awesome tips on the "drawing animals" btw.
That cracked me up! The way you draw seems to reflect a happy personality (for the most part). Thats why its enjoyable for me to see. Alot of what people draw seems to be "Anti-Cute". It makes sense that you're having a hard time with the dragon. Maybe try doing a cute dragon and get most of the features, then make one thats ugly. As for the tiger in a dripping mess? I'll leave that up to canifex
Carnifex - Thanks! Hopefully it'll be helpful, and I hope to learn loads too! hehehe...I think you'll like this one...
Quinster - Thanks, I love cute...'spose I'm stuck in a rut sometimes, which is why I like everyone's suggestions. Dang! Just remembered - I'll get to your squirrel bartender here sometime...
Pesmerga - Glad you like - more of the same!
All right Carnifex, you wanted slime? Behold, slime! I was just going to do the first one, but when I showed it to my roommate she was horrified! "You can't leave it like that! Show him beating the slime, showing it who's boss!" So that's why...
This is a continuation of my furry question - do these weird you out, Carnifex? Hopefully not - that's certainly not my intention!
yeaaahhhh that's the way to do it! when seeing the first pic i was going to suggest you make a comic outta it,but you already did that,so...do a follow-up! i love it!
about the furry-nope it doesn't freak me out. that would be like getting freaked by mickey mouse.
although less fur is more appealing i guess...
Nothing much interesting today - wanted to study backs (suck!), did a girl (really sucks! gah, Fellah's not the only one who needs to do more... ) and a cloth study from the drapery tutorial. It's sideways, in case anyone's wondering...
Patience and practice...lots an' lots of practice! Even after all that, you'll still need to practice...dagnabbit...
Okay, one more page for today! More girls - they look a little better, thankfully. And a unicorn! Their deer-like bone structure allows them to travel amazingly fast, while their wolfish paws allow them to hide their tracks when being trailed by humans.
