Relaxing With a Smexy Pose by AceOfKeys72 Relaxing With a Smexy Pose by AceOfKeys72
Day Nineteen

A secondary request I agreed to do for :iconmightymousefan78:'s character Furvus Wolf. He kinda looks more like DJ O.o that aside I'm glad I can do something like this. I had to use two references for each hand so naturally there is something different about it. However it's pretty unique in that respect.

I think I can start seeing myself doing Anthro art ;)

This looks really great, though from what you've said and what others said it'd be best if you looked at other drawings of Furvus instead of pics of DJ the next time you draw him.

Only thing I'll say as well is to take your time drawing, if you rush it you'll lose quality in the drawing.

I won't deny you have a point. I had hoped that I could get away w using maybe one or two references at the time I drew this but I see it wasn't enough. And yes it was rushed considering I was cramming to finish as I was doing an iron artist challenge. Maybe I should recreate the piece see if I can get an improvement

I see, I normally don't do these iron artist challenges as it usually take me more than a few weeks to finish one piece, but I'd rather have spent nearly a month trying to create a really good looking piece of work than rushing to finish a piece off and have it look very poor in quality (that's just my opinion though)

If you want to recreate it then by all means, the important thing is to take your time with it and be patient, I'm still a developing artist myself and even if I draw the same thing over and over again, I still think I might end up making it look rubbish.

All I can say is if you want references of Furvus look at pics of Furvus but you can still use Demi's art as a reference to how muscles look and appear on the body.

i've done it a few times and it really helped for where i was at, giving me the time and experience to improve over the course of a few months. However now I'm more focused on trying to improve the quality of my work so it might be a while before i do something like it again. 

I can understand what you mean worrying about whether the quality will be good or not. Thats part of the reason i haven't done muscle anthro art in a while. But i think i'm going to change that. lol and yes i probably will do that. I think using Demi's work as a reference is a good idea howver he is someone who has thoroughly practiced and understood muscle anatomy thoroughly, something i lack at the momet. In previous experienec i've found my work tends to look flat and lack definition he has when i tried to imitate his work. As far as I know I do have some vague idea of how to approach redrawing Furvus but it might take some time and some practice. of course i'll be sure to upload it when i get it down ;)

That is true, he's spent years practising and learning the muscle anatomy inside and out and I'm pretty damn certain he's still learning as am I and as are you.

I'm only just getting a basic grasp of anatomy in my artwork and it's starting to show (if you fancy taking a look at my gallery ;))

And to be honest for a while I stopped drawing musclefur art to make 3D model pictures but I went back to drawing because I really wanted to improve.


I've always been told that the fun in art is to be able to see how much you've improved over time and how well you can draw from learning from mistakes.

for someone that proficient its hard to imagine him needing improvement. however a good artist always tries to improve so I will give you that.  I've more or less gotten the gist of the anatomy regarding proportion of the body and limbs as well as poses to an extent however muscle structure and definition and the way to make it realistic is still a ways for me. and yeah you're right I've seen myself improve a lot and it always makes me feel satisfied with what i've accomplished ;)

Well think about it this way, a martial artist, even if he becomes a master of his fighting style, he'll still want to train and practice so that he doesn't become rusty and he might also learn something else that he has never heard of before.

It applies to all of us regardless of skill level.

This is very nice and you are indeed improving with your artwork :) I do see the DJ look to this, but it's cool as the two are close friends and Furvus takes it as a compliment :) Thanks for doing this :)

probably because i rushed it. the funny thing is I did use DJ for a quick reference but the most I used was getting under his chin. the rest I was using Furvus for. freaky

apparently. i suppose i made his snout too small since foxes have smaller snouts compared to wolves however MMF said he took the appearance as a compliment since furvus and dj are good friends ;)

now that you think about it it is to small. looks more like a cat snout rather than a fox.
