cloudbreaker, two thumbs up, absolutely awesome references you posted there.
I am still on holidays away from my computer, but drawing still the same. Been doing lots of wolves.

Do you guys realize how challenging it can be to draw animals?!

Because of the variety of shapes and textures animals have, it can be real tricky to convey it in a style.
Very few artists achieve good results in a graphic format.  

Any of you read DC Comics' Pride of Baghdad by writer Brian K. Vaughan?! If not, get it out, for Niko Henrichon, Vaughan's illustrator, did a splendid job.


There are some awesome panels! You will note that, even though he gave them a somewhat anthropomorphic 'feel', he used a lot of image references.

THIS is the level of artwork I had in mind. It's the kinda look I had in mind for when the Anis' morphed. And I could see it going real well with the way I draw my Hork-Bajirs and Taxxons.

Yeah, it's beautiful ^^ I hope you can draw something like that!
I really suck into drawing animals... really really! I could draw David the rat (maybe the easiest for me, 'coz I practiced a little to draw my degus), but when I tried to draw Cassie the wolf stopping Jake the tiger from killing Tom who took the cube... My wolf is really really horrible! I can't do anything good, even if I took an example from a cover! The tiger (second version lol) isn't that bad, but it's far from this art *pointing to the picture in your post*
When I find a way to scan my last drawings, I'll show how bad they are lol

I don't know, but when I first looked at it I thought I was *strong* but just about fainted. Then I told myself it was fake and felt slightly better :|
And in that moment, I swear we were infinite.

I'm not sure it's fake.
And that showed me how I can be insensitive, sometimes...

I don't know. It probably is. But it still looks gross!

It isn't fake.  That is a real arm.  I read the story that went along with the picture when it first came out.  But don't worry, the guy did get his arm back and it was surgically reattached.  Still, ouch.

Excellent thread, I really love the supercloseups of the insects. Wolf spiders are kind of adorable up close.. and ants are... not nearly as smooth and shiny as we think they are.

Also I must THANK YOU ALL for enclosing animals in spoiler tags and beg that you keep doing it; not only does it keep the thread from stretching, but for folks such as myself who this series gave animal phobias... really, really nice.
