    For fucks sake.
    I'm not good at drawing human faces. At all.. I don't know how to make myself more clear than this. :/

    I drew humanoid faces with the Raskvel shit before and posted them here and you guys liked the pics in the end. Idk what happened to make that opinion turn on it's head. All this is doing is ruining my confidence in drawing humanoids in the future.

    I get it. The face doesn't look the best, I'm well aware. Just stop.

    Well, I like your take on the raskvel, Emerald.

    Each of those specimens has a slightly different jaw length and structure. The second to last one has a much longer muzzle than the rest. They aren't even the same face.

    Also dat bust :yes:

    An artist knowing his limits is a good artist.
    It means you know exactly what you can do well, and at the same time you have room for improving what you can't.
    Right now, you're in the good side.
    Fuck if someone don't like this or that, you'll never appeal everyone's tastes. Do your good stuff, and people who like it will show up. Practice what you don't do good, and take people's critics: after all you'll learn from it and get better, while most people criticizing likely will never be able to do a doodle.

    And build your confidence in what you do well!:
    -Very organic. Your characters look like flesh and skin and fur, and not just a generic photoshop shading.
    -Proportioned. It's obvious what kind of characters are you focusing, and that's all your skill, not cheap tricks.
    -Coloring. I wish I had half the skill with the damned photoshop.
    -Emotion. Two bunny-boys are kissing. That's thanks to the organic looks, and you manage to give them feeling.


    (Now, technically:
    you're accustomed to draw furry faces, that means you do a lot of nuzzles. When drawing a human face, imagine you push that nuzzle back. If the nose gives you trouble, imagine it's a little elongated piramid, set the shadows from there.
    To be more specific:
    the furry nose has two imaginary paralel lines running from the nostrils up to the brow.
    A human nose has those lines from the nostrils, but they don't run paralel, they run up and meet at a third imaginary line in the middle.)

    I... I don't. What? Literally 99% of furry art is drawn with face at a lateral. You can draw it head-on, but it'll look weird if you do. And besides, that raskvel looks more human in facial features than furry.

    Way to treat with criticism of a single piece. If you put something out there, you are opening it up to criticism and comment. When someone posts a piece on here that sparks something within me and I express it via thread post, I like to point out why I'm doing it regardless of what I have to say is something positive or negative. You seem to be a great artist already and it'd be a shame if you assumed that anything that's not praise is aimed to hurt you or attack your skills.

    I could post or PM you (I do not want to derail the thread now that I explained what I meant to Emerald) more examples if you want to know what I mean. Like ZinkShecoat stated, that pose is absurdly dime a dozen in furry art, but the "cheeky" stare and the smirk are what sells it, not the shape of a muzzle or a jaw. After all, a bird or an insectile anthropomorphic character could sport these features too.

    Whilst I do agree with what you said (Emerald knows what she's doing artistically speaking), I thought that the likes of "try to surpass me before critizising me" had disappeared when Windows Live Messenger did. What will be next, "you say this because you envy the artist"? I am okay with my MSPaint doodle skills, thankyouverymuch :p

    They all look like they just told a bad joke [besides the last one and the Raskvel who have more bedroom of faces].

    I dunno what that WLM remark means (being a foreigner, and someone that isn't one of the "internets people", I tend to miss 99% of those comments. Consider me the hillbilly of the forum :p ), but I wasn't aiming particularly at yo or your doodleing skills lol!

    In any case, that's why I said to Emerald to actually pay attention to critics, is the way to learn ("we only learn from defeats" said Alexander?). Rough as they might sound, critics help a lot. Most will be bullshit and just trolling ("I don't like it"), but those saying "this [insert specifics] looks ugly, that looks weird" is useful, you (the artist) might have missed a detail, or really don't know how to solve it.

    Basically, what I'm saying:
    you can ignore easily some comments that don't aport anything. But if there's a lot more pointing out something specific, it is worth listening. Don't get down or depressed, it means people is actually paying attention to your work, which is always a good thing.

    I think 'Windows Live Messenger' is just another way of saying Betamax, or cassette tapes, but framed in a more recent time period.

    Aren't Betamax tapes still used, tho? I mean, not as a commercial product, but a professional one?

    Been a while since I posted something here. Didn't have anything to really show you guys until now. ^^'

    Started recently sketching a little thing. I was in the sudden random mood to create my own fanmade species/race, and then this guy happened.
    Moth Bun Race1.png
    Haven't thought of a good name for him yet, names are the hardest part for me to do..
    But they're basically supposed to be a mix of lagomorph and moth, and sorta inspired by Giza Rabbits (Which I just NOW found out existed) from Final Fantasy. Naturally born feminine in body, small in size (I'm talking maybe 3 or 4 feet in height), fluffy, and yet hung in the genital area.
    They're also an entirely monogendered/monosexed race of trappy moth-bunny boys because come on this is ME we're talking about here. lol So the idea may or may not not be up everyone's ally.
    I know I know, some people are sick of bugs and bug-like species at this point. But this idea was entirely out of my self-indulgence.
    I mean come on, moths and bunnies are cute! So why not?

    Hope you like them. I'll line and color these sketches later, but for now have the rough sketch.

    So what kind of meat are they equipped with? Is it just sheathed human willies, or are their big boners a bit more bestial? (Alliteration ftw)

    EDIT: They're fucking him, and then they're gonna fuck me... oh my goooooooood.

    Not gonna have sheathed human peens, too easy to me in terms of choice. The dick design is still something I'm needing to think about and thus draw out, as these guys are still a very new idea to me, and I really don't wanna stick with a simple cone design or anything like that.
    I'm gonna see what I can do for a bestial look for their bits. Prehensile and nubbed are two ideas that come to mind, but we shall see.

    While I'm working on developing the mothbuns (Doing a dick design in a sketch or two atm to get a good design concept, and a codex for funsies), I doodled some more Avery. Been a while since I updated so I figured I post a pic of his butt really getting it.

    And another. Just now finished this.
    Another trap boi, a full-blooded Rodenian at that. I have yet to give him a name. (Can't think of one rn)
    Rodanian Boi Bust resized.png
    And since it's a Rodenian, no doubt I'm gonna probably draw something weird involving him at some point in the future. (Lol To think I was grossed out by the whole 'eargina' thing they got going on, now I'm thinking about making use of it in a pic. x3)
    But for now, a simple bust. Ears are puffy looking compared to how I wanted them to look, but I think he came out super cute looking imo. c:
