Art trade For VixensLife - Rilka - by Gamal-the-rookie Art trade For VixensLife - Rilka - by Gamal-the-rookie
My part of an art trade between myself and :iconvixenslife:

The last Trade we did, was a collaboration of Bats! :D [link]

Yay for Trades! :D Very fun to do, Had trouble with the clothes, I wanted to make it look like something a bit diffrent, but I messed up XD Its still decent, I think. :P

Link to her part to come here:
She made Maolin! YEAH! :la: :la: :la: :la: :la:

If anyone is willing for a trade, just ask! :XD: May it be sketches or fully painted, we can do this :)

And as always, feel free to comment if there is anything you find outstanding, find looking a bit too fishy, or simply do not understand!

I am from :iconanthro-feedback:, and I am here to provide you with feedback, helpful tips and hints, and also redlines and greenlines. All based upon your request about feedback on this specific drawing.

The first thing I noticed, and also what I like the most, is the eyes, the hair, the dress, and her ears.
The eyes:
They have improved a lot since last time I critiqued one of your drawings. I like the shape you’ve given them, and the details are clean and yet so effective. They give the feeling of an actual eye. They also fit in perfectly with her face. Which is seriously cute by the way.
The hair:
Her hair is also very detailed, it’s simple, but also very effective. I like how I can count her hair strands, and how the light hit the one side of her head.
The dress:
I’m usually not a fan of these kind of dresses, but this one looks really good, and the character looks so good in it. The amount of details in the light makes it pop, and it looks simply gorgeus.
The ears:
That fluff. They look really good, and I want to pet them like I used to pet the ears of my bunny.

What I think could need more work is the anatomy, and the shading.
The anatomy:
Now, anatomy is a seriously pain in the tail, and what looks good in one person eyes looks bad in another. I’m not saying that this is bad, I just find some things that could been improved.
The first thing is the hand she’s holding on her hips. Her wrist is missing a bit of shape, and her hand looks a bit out of shape, almost like the fingers have just been placed at the end of her arm. The other hand however, looks just perfect.
I found a tutorial on hands: [link].
And for her legs and feet. The leg she’s standing on looks fine, but the feets are a little bit off. I don’t get the sense of anthro feets here. Her toes are a bit misplaced compared to the rest of her foot.
I found a nice example on anthro feet: [link]
The shading:
The fur is so detailed that it’s hard to see where the shades actually are. I get some hints because you’ve added lighter dots of fur on her, but I still feel like the shades are kind of missing. What you could do is to work with shades on different layers. Personally, when I draw I use 4-6 shading layers. It might give it a more shaded effect.
I also found a tutorial on shading: [link], and [link]

Redlines and greenlines: [link]

I hope this was helpful. Thank you for submitting your lovely artwork to our group. We are looking forward to your submissions in the future. You are a great artist, and you will get far with your skills.

Have a great day!

Yes, thank you - This have given me some things to think about :)

Good tutorials too, will look into it.

One thing i Disagree with, is the foot you drew in the red-line, I found it bad XD (the behind one, front is okay.)

Nice work! Your obviously improve your skills in drawing anthros!=)
But anyway I think something wrong with fingers on leg. I guess it should be directed in other side. Something like that.

Not so sure what you mean about the fingers - The hand looks possibly to me, I can even replicate the stance in real life XD

Thanks a lot for the compliment :heart:
