Fireball flame doggo

Posted May 7, 2020, 9:31:10 PM
Sorry for not posting in awhile. I\'ve been unmotivated lately and felt discouraged for some reason, other than thinking that my artwork is bad. Anyway, here is a drawing of an old character I\'ve kept since 2011. She\'s a flame doggo, and has the intention of bursting into flames when angered. While she\'s angry, it\'s best to keep away for a short while until she simmers down.

    Awe- I'm sorry to hear that and I know that feel. I'm on the tail end of that feel too. 2019 saw me going to therapy for the first time, and I sorted out a lot of spring cleaning, then my best friend at the time "divorced" me from her life with no warning and blamed it on a bunch of stuff that was really nothing stuff. She's going through some shit so it's ok, but it messed me up super bad.

    My process to get back into it was to sleep a lot, have a sketch book to draw what I feel like to the degree I feel like. I hit up pintrest and draw stuff from there like poses, faces, etc... then eventually I started drawing simple art with lots of anatomy errors and I just let that all come out. I did 20 pictures over days and they're all terrible XD Then I managed to get rid of enough negativity to do the 6 fanarts challenge I'm doing now, and the difference from the first of them to the last is huge. My stamina is coming back, and I'm having fun drawing again. I don't know if this process helps, but if it does, then it was all worth sharing ^^

        I am Smile As I said, I'm on the tail end of it. I've been posting some art from the 6 fanarts challenge. I'm.... spending a long time on each picture so they're getting a post each. My current one getting a work in progress cause it's taking WAY too long ^^; I'm drawing though which is totally worth it Smile

    Nice work with the pencils here, they're very consistent in color. Her muzzle came out well, however with the line art of it being one shape, it doesn't mesh into the rest of the face as well as it could. I'd recommend breaking the line at some pint, like close to the eyes (most muzzles are relatively flat on the top, so when it gets close to the eyes and rises, we'd just see the smooth slope as it melds to the rest of the face. Does that make any sense? I might be putting it unclearly, sorry!). To take it a step further, you could add a few lines to replace the top of the muzzle's line which show a snarl, since that's what she appears to be doing. It would strengthen her expression even further- her face as a whole came out very well, it would be lovely to see it even better Smile

    As a side note, she has a wonderful tail, the fluff is highly approved.
