Hey Greypuppy, I just made an image laying out some of your anatomy errors and ways to fix them, Imgur, they're numbered so you can look at what I'm talking about as you read. ^ ^

1.) Placement of the shoulders; to allow for a full range of movement, they're set a little lower than you have them, and the collar bone is set lower to reflect that (and is also part of what keeps our shoulders where they are, if you set your hand on your collar bone and lift your shoulders you can feel how it changes.)

2.)How the chest, armpit, and shoulder all come together; this is a common issue that most ppl fix once they realize that all those muscles connect on the shoulder. The hollow of our arm pit is formed by the muscles bending around the arm bone to reach the outside of the shoulder. The reason our pecks bulge when we pull our shoulders in is b/c those muscles are what's doing the pulling.

3.) The s-curve of the spine; Unless you're forcing the spine flat, the spine has a natural curve from the tail-bone to the base of the skull, this don't just effect the side-view, but also how the pelvis and rib-cage position themselves. The best way I could depict the way they tilt if with the two pink cups in the drawing. I exaggerated the tilt of the hips in the example drawing, but it still gives you a good idea what they're doing, all the same.

4.) The muscles on the top of the legs; just as we have the bulges of muscles on our butt and back of the leg to pull our leg back, we also have muscle running from our pelvis to our knee that helps us lift our leg. Even if you're not very beefy, you can still see part of that curve on the top of the leg, think of it as however bold the under-leg curve line is, the top one is at least half as bold a curve line.

5.) The muscles and tendons meeting behind the knee; you're drawing wouldn't bee far off the mark on a character with a heavyer build, but with someone so skinny, the hollow behind the knee would be more apparent. This is because behind the knee there's a hollow where the muscles have pulled to either side so they can attach to the kneecap. Sometimes there is a sort of square lump that lines up with the kneecap itself (forgot to draw that version, sorry, ^ ^ ' ) but for a skinny person, usually it just dips in right behind the knee as appose to a little below it as you've drawn.

6.)Where the thumb connects; not a big issue here, more just that there's another link to the thumb, and the flesh attached half-way across the palm. Went ahead and gave you a clear drawing of the hand bulges and pads, I find it helps for the placement paw-pads.

Hope that wasn't too overwhelming, I figured I would tackle this critique with all I could think of since I'm thinking of writing a 'how-to' book on drawing figures at some point.

There's some minor issues with knee to ankle to paw placement, but since I didn't know how exactly to explain it, I couldn't add it to the drawing.

And if you ever want to really get a good feel for anatomy, the book I would recommend is Classic Human Anatomy. It's full of good drawings and a lot of technical anatomy stuff (which was a little daunting when I first looked through it,) but it's really helped me to understand not just how things look, but also why, which is great when you're having to make images in weird poses from scratch.

TL:DR - Just go look at the pretty picture, Imgur

Traditional materials are the best place to start. Don't worry about anything fancier than pencil/charcoal and paper until you've got the basics down.

What you need to do first is study the Principles of Design and the Elements of Design. These are the first things students are taught before they can move on. Usually, they are taught alongside Drawing 101, where students become familiar with these elements in practice, drawing mostly contour drawings of still lives. You should also be learning about linear perspective. You should be focusing on how to break objects down into simple forms, like cylinders and cubes and cones and spheres. Learn to draw with your arm and not your wrist; you can do this more easily by drawing on large paper (18"x24" or bigger).

Once you've got those basics learned, you can move on to learning about drawing with value. Charcoal and a kneaded eraser work best here, I think. Start doing still lives of single objects, like eggs or fruit, small geometric forms like cubes and the like, and focus on how light moves around these objects. One thing our professor had us do is to wipe our drawings down with a chamois frequently. It keeps you from getting focused on your drawing, but gives you a vague guideline to continue from. It makes drawing more about process than product, which is ultimately your goal if you're learning; to understand the process of seeing and drawing.

Once you've got the concept of the process and how value works, start increasing the complexity of your still lives. See how large you can make them. Get some big boxes and chairs and stuff and set them up in the middle of your room and draw that. Then start drawing the room you're in. Now, go outside and draw the buildings outside. You might notice that they're like a larger version of the boxes you were just drawing!

If you can, take some classes at your local community college. They'll really help you along learning these basics. If that's not available, most schools base their teaching methods on Betty Edwards' Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain. Pick it, and the accompanying workbook up, and you'll be well on your way.

You should also look at Andrew Loomis' books to help study most of these principles. George Bridgman is another godsend for learning to draw, as well as Burne Hogarth and Louise Gordon.

You should always be studying things from life to keep your skills sharp. Always remember that reference photos aren't cheating. You'll find that more often than not, they're a necessity.

I also heavily recommend you check out CtrlPaint's videos. They're focused on becoming a digital artist, but have a section devoted to traditional work and its importance in digital work. He also goes over the basics quite well and provides links to outside resources, as well as homework assignments for every video. Check it out, watch a video a day, and do an assignment with it, and you'll be putting yourself on the fast track.

One thing about drawing is that it's going to take a lot of patience. It takes a long time to develop your skills. Don't get discouraged! Learn to handle criticism, both good and bad. Critiques are your friend and whether you agree with them or not, they'll help you grow. Never ever rely on the excuse "It's my style!" because more often than not, if you have to use that line, it's a mistake you don't want to fix, not a stylistic decision. I've seen many people with great potential fail out of the art program I was in simply because they couldn't handle criticism.

I too like books with anthro characters, but there is a lack of quality in what is available. Here is a short list of posted in an earlier thread:

I would recommend looking at the reviews on flayrah. Personally, I have not found much in the way of quality furry literature, but I have read a few.

The Sacred Book of The Werewolf by Victor Pelevin. There are two kinds of furry books: those writen by furries and those that are writen by non-furries. This is one of the latter. I do not have the time to give a full review, but if you like werewolves, kitsune, eastern philosophies, Russian culture (or at least curious about it) eastern and russian folklore, and supernatural romances, you might just like (I did). Furriness - 6, Quality - 10 [I want to add that this book has very mature scenes]

Ringworld by Larry Niven. This usually shows up somewhere on the top 100 sci fi novels. However, this is another book not written by a furry, and it shows since only one character could be classified as "furry". Furriness - 4, Quality - 10

Rise of the Wolf by Curtis Jobling. I have not read much of this so far, but from what I have seen it is high fantasy. So far, I have not been impressed with the writing, which is why I haven't finished it. Furriness >5, Quality <6

In Wilder Lands by Jim Galford. Another high fantasy novel, but this one was much better written. I will be buying the sequel when comes out, for whatever it is worth. It does have a few problems, namely that many characters and the world need to be fleshed out more. Furriness - 9, Quality - 7.

Spice and Wolf by Isuna Hasekura. Yes, I know it is not exactly furry, but OP may still like it. One of the main character is a wolf "god" who takes the form a young woman, and the other is a traveling merchant. The setting is largely inspired by post dark ages Europe and is not overwhelmed with fantasy brickabrack. Furriness - 2, Quality - 8

I am going to pick up Red Sails in the Fallout tomorrow for my kindle, since the sample is holding my interest. I might also pick up Argo and Ten Thousand Miles Up. These last two books are short stories not novels.

Edit: misspelled book

If you are looking for something you can find at a place like Barns and Noble, Urban Fantasy is likely what you will find most fuzzy. Lots of werewolf in the city type books.

[Kitty and the Midnight Hour (Kitty Norville Series) By Carrie Vaughn] ( - Urban Fantasy. Liked a lot of the series. It is fun and doesn't take it self too seriously. Spunky Midnight DJ (thats a werewolf) starts taking calls about things that go bump in the night and it leads to fame and adventure.

Skinwalker (Jane Yellowrock, Book 1): A Jane Yellowrock Novel - Another Urban Fantasy. Skin walker that prefers the form of a cat takes up the job of head of security for a vampire. Bit gritter then above, and can bit a bit hit or miss.

Both of the above should be available locally for almost everyone. I have a huge pile of books I could sort to find others. But on to actual furry things:

Turning Point (Sholan Alliance) Bit old, and slightly dated mass produced book from the 80s that was vary furry and it is an impressively long series. Young lady from a colony world meets a telepathic cat and bonds with him.

Off Leash (Freelance Familiars Book 1) One of the better feral books I have ever read. Main turns into a 4 pawed feline familiar and bucks the trends.

[WindFall] ( Young Husky meets up with old friend in a town a show was made about and discover a little bit of truth exists.

[Exiles Return] ( Bunny who retired to a uncolonized rim world is called back to represent Earth.

In Wilder Lands: The Fall of Eldvar Kind of an game/RPG style series. A homeless ringtale (of all things) ends up assisting a fox and eventually falling in love. Did I mention undead are slowly covering the world?

Mindtouch - This book is fairly intresting and one of the few books that I have ever read that features a almost romantic platonic relationship.

Bait and Switch - While I don't think this book is everyones cup of tea, it tackles identity issues in a interesting way.

Portals of Infinity (Series) - While I wouldn't call the series great books. Its fun furry action. Human stumbles in to a portal ends up becoming a champion of a fuzzy god, gets the girl and saves the day.

Some stuff that you can find for free:

[Ted R. Blasingame] ( Writes a number of books worth checking out. Namely: Sunset of Furmankind and its available for free.

[Fel (James Galloway)] ( Has tried vary had not write furry fiction but almost everything he writes has something fuzzy or a lot of fuzzy. Check out: Spirit Walker, Earth Bond and Kit. All 3 are free.

Reference! When drawing a character always rely on reference! No need to reinvent the character unless that's what you are going for.

Draw what you see not what you think you see. This tip is a bit more ephemeral though and ties into references. When drawing from reference really look at how each body part curves and connects. There are usually a lot of subtle curves.

Anatomy is your friend. Once you understand how anatomy works you can kinda bend it to your will. You can mold it and still have it look "right."

Other than that, to get rid of the hairy/scratchy looking lines, commit to the lines you draw. Don't constantly redraw the same line over and over trying to get it just right! (unless this is a rough sketch, then scratch away!) Usually for inking a drawing you should have a rough idea of where you want your lines to go in pencil. Practice the line you are going to draw in your head. Ghost your line a few times. And then commit and put your line on the page. Dont go so fast you cant controll the line but dont go so slow you get all the tremoprs in your hand to show up in the line.

Hmm, for other tips I wish I knew when starting, dont be afraid to reproduce someones art. Copy (do not trace) it onto the page as close in detail as you can to the original image.

Im a huge advocate of this book as well, its hugely eye opening for a beginner if you have no sort of training. It does contain lessons and requires you to have supplies on hand but its well worth the effort of going through it.

Lastly here is the first time I drew Fidget and the most recent redraw attempt! The first was when I first started drawing about two years ago. The second was about seven months ago.

P.S. Keep ALL your drawings. Whenever you feel like you are not making much progress go back and look at them. You will definately notice your progress.

(copy/paste from another one of my posts, it's all useful stuff though :3)

Here are a few sites that I have found useful in developing as a furry artist:

  1. Some of the very basics of setting up your tablet to be most effective

  2. Great for beginning digital artists

  3. A pose generator, great for practicing anatomy. Practice these and your drawings will look less stiff and more dynamic

  4. More figure drawing practice

  5. Animal Drawing Practice

  6. A youtube channel with a ton of useful tips and techniques for drawing figures

  7. Hands/Clawed hands, More Hands, Even More Hands!

  8. A Book focused solely on drawing furry art, and another. and another, and yet another

    Becoming thoroughly familiar human and animal anatomy and being able to draw them well will bring you 90% of the way to where you need to be to draw good furry art and the rest is putting them together through lots and lots of practice. Good luck!

    edit: Almost forgot! I would love to see some of your art :D

Yay, I'm a religious figure now. Take that pope. >V

But seriously though, I'm just a starting point. when your'e drawing you should try to have references open unless you're really familiar with your subject. I've seen a lot of foxes, but I've got 6 or 7 tabs of fox pictures open right now for a modeling project I'm... pursuing... very slowly... >.>;

The best tip I can give is ignore what the "how to draw manga/anime" books teach you. Instead look for the Andrew Loomis books for great reference material for humans (since, you know, most anthro art is human bodies with a few animal features tacked on). I also liked Anatomy for Fantasy Artists for a few pages of info. Anthro wise, there wasn't a lot that I've seen (though it's been at least 5 years since I looked) that isn't just the artist showing off their work without teaching much. I did like Freaks! however overall, it has a variety of artists giving tips and covering a good array of styles. I'm particularly drawn to the art of Brett Booth, but he's a comic book artist, so his artwork is detailed to the ridiculous much of the time.

u/Tossoutaccountt · 1 pointr/furry

Narrows it down quite a bit, and needlessly so.

I recommend The Architect Of Sleep. Not written by a furry, but when I first joined the fandom and was looking for anthropomorphic-themed novels to read, this was on the top of the list, and for good reason. AMAZING world-building!

u/BlackCherrieDraws · 2 pointsr/furry

I'd recommend studying this book: . I bought it when i was a kid, and as my skills grew over time, i was able to follow the tutorials and now i have a style of my own that looks nice. Your work looks great for your first attempt. So im certain once you practice diligently over the next year or so, you'll improve tons!

u/scathsiorai · 1 pointr/furry

James Gurney's books are great. There's a couple ugly links for you.

Following artists on facebook has helped me more than anything. Well not more than putting in the time and effort to improve of course. Anyway, professionals are always posting advice and links to valuable resources. Its worth looking for artists that you like and seeing what their process is and how they solve artistic problems.

u/Pseudoboss11 · 2 pointsr/furry

In order to take good pictures of art, you should find the most diffuse light you can, this'll prevent whitewashing half your picture. I've found that sunlight through clouds is pretty good and quite bright. If you're doing this regularly, then it might not always be ideal conditions to go outside and snap a picture. You'll want to invest in an external flash or lamp and a light diffuser So that you can take good pictures indoors. Though you might have a florescent lamp or something that does acceptably, too.

Properly exposing is also important. If you're taking pictures indoors especially, you'll probably want a tripod so that you can take exposures as long as you need.

Also, try to get reasonably far away from the piece and zoom in if you have to, this'll prevent distortion. Try your best to frame the picture well and make sure that the piece is as square against the camera as you can get it.

It'll take a bit to get right, there are people who specialize in photographing art. But once you've got a system down, it doesn't take a minute to do.

If you're working small, you might be able to use a good scanner (though crappy scanners will result in crappy scans, especially of art. They're usually designed for text, which means the the colors will be washed out and the contrast absurd. Make sure you research a scanner before you buy one.) but that's not really an option if you're working on a larger artist's pad, oil painting, or doing anything that's shiny or bumpy.

After my old laptop got stolen, I ended up getting a Lenovo Y410p, which is pretty amazing. I took out the disc drive and slapped in an extra SSD just for gaming. I can play most games on ultra, which is something I could only dream of before.

Phone: HTC One M7 - I've had it for close to 2 years now and it's held up very nicely compared to my last one, which was an HTC EVO 3D that kept crapping out on me. I haven't had to do any manufacturers resets so far, which is always a plus. Battery life is pretty decent, but it's built in so you can't switch it out, so that sucks if you don't have access to a plug, but you can get around that by getting a portable charger. Amazon has a pretty big selection. I ended up getting this one very recently. It came in handy while I had to sit through an 8 hour class the other day. People were fighting over the few wall outlets that were available. Hehehe

For anyone who also wanted it I found it on Amazon and Barnes & Noble websites. Also found the other ones too

Take a look at Lights on shattered water. I haven't finished it yet but I'm beyond half and it's very good so far. There is one sex scene in it so far (if I recall correctly) but it's not focused on sex.

You can either download it for free here or buy it from amazon here There's also one or two sequels.
Also, here's the song that made me check it out.

u/PM_Me_Your_FurryPorn · 2 pointsr/furry

As a non artist, I cannot vouch for the quality, but I have seen these mentioned before

But there's tons and tons of free tutorials online as well.

u/ARandomFur · 3 pointsr/furry

Check out a book called Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain: You'll immediately improve as you learn things like not drawing from symbols and learning to draw what you see. Most people get stuck in the symbol drawing stage when they're in elementary school, which is why it's embarrassing to pick it back up as an adult. It'll look like a child's drawing until you learn WHY it looks that way, and learn the proper way to perceive things you're drawing. It's also extremely friendly and approachable for beginners.

u/SchroedingersBox · 2 pointsr/furry

Constructive reviews of books like this would be very useful. Light on Shattered Water and its sequel, Storms Over Open Fields are on Amazon and also the author's webpage and reviews are always welcome.

I saw this book at a local bookstore back in 2006 and was enchanted by anthropomorphic animals within. Wanting to find more like them, I researched and researched on the internet and eventually discovered the furry fandom. I was one of them before summer the following year.

Amazon link for Children of Steel. The eBook is $5.99 / £4.59 (but free for those with Kindle Unlimited) and a Paperback version is around $12.99 / £9.99.

u/LinuxFurryTranslator · 3 pointsr/furry

I'd add to that.
And be sure to check Stephen Reysen's and Courtney Plante's profiles on Research Gate. There are at least 40 published articles about Furries just from the IARP nowadays and the list keeps growing.

They have low cut and high cut, kinda wish I would have got a pack of just the grey hi cut ones cause they are the most Lowkey and I could wear them around the house without my parents calling me a weirdo
