More of an constructive critique for my work in this thread. FPP 818

Understand I have very dodgy Internet, not gonna be here for long, couldn't directly receive the image, so I had to screenshot it, which is over to the left. My main concern is perspective or the button string's color, since come people says it looks like X for dead. I temporarily have the resources to draw more, but I definitely need to learn to draw better so I can let go when it's time to let go.

Perspective for this photo is like, is it 3/4th or is part of it actually in a shifted position, which ruins the streamlining, and makes it look like a Picasso painting.

Btw, is my drawing good? Learning to draw more than just heads.

FPP 820

Drew this in class after finishing my work.

My home tablet (bamboo connect) 's micro USB side broke, so one is on its way now.

Can't draw for shit on MSPaint with a mouse.

Whetever I use Photoshop for drawing, my art skills seems to multiply. I dunno, is it a placebo?

And apparently, no one gives a fuck.

Anonymous 842

I don't see any glaring flaws or obvious things that need improvement. What are your areas of concern?

FPP 843


You know, improper perspective?

Like a person's countance in a typical Pisacco painting, but less severe?

FPP 844


For example, I think the eye button away from the view seems off.

Anonymous 845

I think it just needs a slight, millimeter or so turn inward. The rest of the head and face are fine, really, perhaps the nostrils could use a bit of turn.

FPP 860

Studied it, decided it was the right perspective.

But the other image, What is the flaw?

Not really an artist, just wanted to say…
Scalemate looks cool. And honestly this looks good to me.

Well, thanks.

Kind of working on the anatomy.

Limbs are my biggest problem, along with Body Height/Width ratio.

Got some eye outlines here (Blue spot's size is irrelevant at the moment, it just a stand in for the button.)

This is the default fem. version (still working on it, for some variety)

FPP 947


Also a pet peeve is on top of the head on both version (it's canon in-comic, but I can't figure out how to put some distance between the tips)

FPP 948


Ah, I found a solution.

How does the hand in the bubble looks?


File: 1350934633411.jpg (88.73 KB, 500x474, Fortuna DrayaColourlessMeena.j…)

How are you colouring this?

FPP 967


Coloring? Two things:

For this project I'm extracting from Limbo, which is already black and white in the strict sense.

Another thing is, you mean the characters or the BG?


File: 1350936238551.jpg (219.48 KB, 500x685, Silhouettes.jpg)

I mean the white pixels surrounding the cliffs.

FPP 975


Well, I'm retexturing the cliffs soon though so…

FPP 976


Do you like the hand?


File: 1350937554461.png (70.97 KB, 500x500, Fortuna Anthro WIP 2.png)

Best part of the image.
I suck at hands and usually hide them.

FPP 980


Just try to copy your hand. It worked for me pretty well. I can draw a full-pledged hand if I want to.

I know how to draw a hand, just been preoccupied with hooves and things like them.

>First time trying to draw a hat on a dragon, let alone a drooped beanie.


Well, people generally don't have the reference you have. You're drawing something that's definitely not a pony and we don't know what it is that it is.
Can you post the thing you're trying to draw as an example?

FPP 1249


It's a scalemate.

The original doesn't look like what I draw at all…


Got inspired by this BEFORE I started drawing:


But I VERY generally base it off these:


(Scalemate's the official name, but I like to use the word Plushdragon)

FPP 1250

File: 1352403709084.png (168.16 KB, 600x776, dhsyearbookad.png)


I mean slightly vague, not VERY GENERALLY.



File: 1352404873293.png (301.87 KB, 1131x858, Fortuna Anthro - Skyware.png)

The middle one makes the best reference. It's somewhat like what you're trying to do. I'm no expert on this kind of thing but it looks like you want to do a thing like anthros.
Take the human body and look at what makes it up. Use the human base to work with things but make some of the features more animalistic. In this case make the hands more pointed like an anthro fox or a dragon's claw, the head shape should be based off of what you have and the rest should be moderately human.

FPP 1350


Actually, I'm trying to do pointed fingers for females, and blocky fingers for males. If I do it anime-like, then I might do both.

And I'm trying to imply a MSPAFA later, which comes with a story and, with it, rules… So that's why I'm kind of not following the rules, because I'm trying to be a bit of my own niche.
I can explain the rules if you want.
