Eventually you will get to the point where you are using a reference photo, but actually changing the details on your reproduction of the photo to make it look more "real" (even though nothing is more real than a photo!) :3

Managed to draw a disappointingly short time during break (darn you halo4 and League of Legends).
Due to the wonderful feedback i've received, these pieces came out a bit better than my past attempts.

Here's my fursona in profile

Here's Gyp!

Here's Tom!

In reference to the last two: I've been worried about drawing other furs. I still can't represent anything really well and I didn't want to give anyone a bad representation of themselves. I think you all know me well enough to know that this the flaws are in my skill and not in my perception of your fursona. Anyway, hopefully ill get to more fuzzy and feathery and scaley friends in the future.

I got some new art! I've been working on some sketches over the last few months (I've found it a fun thing to do during lectures). Most of them are poor quality but still good practice, but a few were decent. I finally got around to scanning them so here they are.

This is a picture of my good friend Sarah as a snow leopard (she picked an unofficial fursona though she isn't a furry) riding a character from Terry Pratchett's Diskworld series, The Luggage. It seems a bit random at first, but this character sort of represents the whole series, which I've enjoyed ever since Sarah recommended it to me. So this is sort of a thank you gift. http://tabbytim.deviantart.com/art/The- ... -375782110

Two more typical feline drawings:

http://tabbytim.deviantart.com/art/Happ ... -375783476

Thanks for looking and let me know what you think :3

So here's a crappily made comic of an exaggeration of a real-life situation that happened with Tom and me. There are a few inside-jokes/references and the punchline is an 'Archer' reference so I can't guarantee you'll find it funny.

My little brother's critique: It needs polish, but that's not important. The last two panels don't really make sense. You need to have your scenes focused/zoomed more into your character, I missed you the first time I looked at one of the panels.

My daughter's critique: Tabs is Dikkie Dik

(Dikkie Dik is the main character from a Dutch book series for babies and toddlers. He originally appeared in the Dutch Sesame Street where they'd tell short stories from 'The book of Dikkie Dik' to a group of kids; the actual books came a bit later.)

My biggest critique of this is the placement of the words in the last panel. it is a pretty common newbie mistake... readers are always trained to read top to bottom, left to right. So the way you have the words placed right now, you read "NEVER!" first, and *then* "GO TO SLEEP". You'd want to rearrange the words in the panel so that they're read in the proper order naturally.


Other than the fact that I don't get the punchline, I think it's super cute. XD in some alt universe all the FFC peeps should live in this big house together for comic adventures ~
