*doodle doodle doodle* questions anyone?
what ive done art wise:

- finished Quicksilver's badge, still waiting for payment *taps foot*
- played around with the character illustration for the Werewood book
- fixed composition on kaffe's commission, still tweaking it. im not good with Jedi knight stuff =P
- sketched out Emrys for my art trade with blaqriot

and i got to thinking, what with trying to find dragoncreator on AIM to swap coloring tips and whatnot, does anyone out there wanna ask me any art related questions? im no expert, but sometimes i like to ask other artists how they do something/what their inspiration is/whatever to better help me out.

so..having said that, go on, ask me any art related question you want. it can be my opinion on something or it could be tips and tricks, or whatever comes to mind!

not that simple to explain. ailah has a fur tutorial located here
http://www.thereselarsson.se/index2.htm
which i dont exactly follow *should take some tips though*
but anyhoo, when i do do fur like in Crush and LuffWuffs i actually draw each individual hair in the direction that fur actually lies and fill in the shadows by scribbling/shading with the pencil over the individually drawn hairs. thats just the way i do it, but some people do it a more efficient way, what way that is i dont even know. id like to say pics help, and they do, but you just gotta practice a bit here and there and figure out which one works for you.

I know I already said it, but I'll say it again. Thanks for all your help yesterday. :)

I talked to my friend Skulldog after I ate dinner last night, and I talked to her about feeling that lately my art doesn't reflect my full potential and she agreed, so I ended up drawing something new, and having her critique it, and I REALLY like it. (Perhaps I'll show you the sketch sometime, I do have it uploaded.)

Thanks for inspiring me to get off my lazy ass and producing something I can be proud of when it's done.

It'll be in the mail either late today or tommorow. Sorry for the wait.

And for the question...

Hand/Paws. Any tips for making them look more natural then either very human or very animal like?

the method that works for me is to draw it like you would a regular hand, but make it puffier and stubbier with the joints of a paw. that way it maintains some dexterity, but it still looks like a paw with a thumb! =D
