First fur art attempt!
« on: August 18, 2016, 09:31:15 PM »
So (relatively) recently I drew up a pic using ink and color pencils of Nori and I's fursonas (Nori and Calun) as a sort of gift/fun thingy since she's been my absolute no. 1 BFF ever. (FBFFs)



I'm going to be working on more, and naturally getting my skills and everything up as best I can with practice. My biggest concern was Calun's snout and some of his face, where the colors darkened a bit more than planned, so it's a little run together, but I AM proud of the gold/tan and blues there. As for Nori, I'm particularly proud of how I drew her head.

Anyway, just kind of wanted to share my first attempt at a 'true' furry/anthro art! I'm happy to get tips or advice if you want to share anything you think will be useful for me as I keep practicing.

It looks really good.

The colouring is well: typical pencil/pen but that's the way how you prefer making the drawing.
Anyway: a good start

Thanks guys! And thanks, Bricket. I was feeling pretty proud of this, even considering what improvements I can obviously do. I was also trying to be careful, and printed a copy during its halfway point to test colors on a copy that wasn't the original. XD

<3 Thank you! I'm still proudest if Nori's head the most. XD And she's the one all covered by the wing.

Aw, thanks a ton! I still want to improve on my Calun head drawing, but I'm proud of Nori. Not sure how it came out so cleanly!
