I've been having a time of lack of motivation for doing art. At least I drew something even if its not very good. I think I'm a little rusty already. Its been a year since I asked to draw Craven. Well better late than never I guess.
Tess belongs to me
Craven belongs to sacerlupus

I'm sorry to hear that you're lacking motivation. I think everyone goes through a little of that at some point. I love the way you posed these two, very cute. I think that they would benefit from darker shading - especially the guy on the right, like under his chin and where his back leg meets his tail. But don't get discouraged, I don't think you are regressing or anything.
patchy [Profile] 2013/7/26 - 15:5:37
I know how you feel, I haven't drawn anything on here for about a year I think. Just gotta keep drawing I guess.
docile_dragon [Profile] 2013/7/27 - 20:47:21
Thanks guys. Yea, I always need to work on making my dark shading darker. I'm doing a limited color picture painter style and I seem to have a little more motivation for that although not much more.

This is the BEST picture I've ever done!! This is a picture of the phoenix in my book...But I totally made up his form just now.. He is so awesome. I love drawing so much.

catgirl [Profile] 2013/7/25 - 22:43:31
I love your attitude. :)
dreyacira [Profile] 2013/7/26 - 14:13:59
Cool looking phoenix! I love all the colors, and the head feathers are great.

Blond fox and gray crow again. Just wanted to draw something quick before my last night shift.

nighstar54 [Profile] 2013/7/25 - 16:33:50
Oh my gosh they're so cute!!
theroguemind [Profile] 2013/7/26 - 23:45:34
I really like the bird, it's super snazzy and the feet are perfect!
dreyacira [Profile] 2013/7/31 - 15:39:50
Thank you both! I have trouble with bird feet, so I'm glad they came out well.

That's you, right? Cool. Is that a computer in a different room, the room doesn't look like yours.
pumadragon [Profile] 2013/7/25 - 14:55:2
Haha, that's what I look like when I'm drawing on the oekaki. Lots of pictures on the wall and stuff. Oh yes, chrome and minecraft.
dreyacira [Profile] 2013/7/26 - 14:12:50
Hahaha, this is a fun idea. I wonder what mine would look like. I love all your drawings all over the walls.

Cute, she's like a little cat-fairy.
catgirl [Profile] 2013/7/25 - 22:38:50
Aw, that's SO CUTE! The lines and the feathers and the big sparkly eyes...and ...and

dreyacira [Profile] 2013/7/26 - 14:12:5
Gosh I love the colors you used to shade her body. They're beautiful.

If this is to gory feel free to move it.

I've found some time to draw again, however I had to finish this before Friday because I didn't know how long I would be gone and it only holds for a week.

This is Applesauce, I created him a while back but just now decided to draw him in anthro form, I changed a bit of things and actually came up with a story for him.

Eventually i'm going to get him commissioned into a fursuit and go fursuiting with all of my lovely friends I've met on deviantart.

although I don't know anyone who makes fursuits I do have friends who own one, seems like all the people making fursuits are busy so I cant get in touch with anyone.

Before I get him commissioned Lucky and chaos come first. (my friend will be wearing chaos)

He was always malicious, thirsted for blood but above all he loved science, he wanted to know how every single thing in the body he cut open a FEW humans to find out.

I just imagined him singing this ( [link] ) as he did his dirty work. I actually played that most of the time I was working on this....

The back-ground-less image of him can be found here ( [link] ) and his original design of him can be found here ([link] )
big improvement from then and now....

heather [Profile] 2013/7/25 - 15:34:12
By the way people I forgot to mention that i'm going to be drawing a picture of all of my friends characters in one piece along with lucky, and i'd like to know who would want to be in it?

its sort of a tribute to you all...

Crazy4dragons, Brownwolfcub, wolven? would you like to be In it and anyone else?

it wont be right away but i'll start working on it once I get some names.

crazy4dragons [Profile] 2013/7/25 - 17:44:44
I commented on dA, but might as well comment here too, I'd love to be included. :)
dreyacira [Profile] 2013/7/26 - 14:11:9
Good shapes on his face and muzzle. I really think your art would be much more professional if you didn't use the airbrush so much, though. It just makes the shading look very blobby. Right now I'm getting from this picture a very cartoony vibe just because of the airbrush and all the really bright colors. I didn't even notice that it was gory until I looked closer. I understand if you don't want to take my critique into account, but I think it will improve your art if you learn to use pen or some other tool to shade. You can be a lot more precise with them and it will look cleaner.
heather [Profile] 2013/7/29 - 14:21:6
thanks for the advise, I find it easier to shade with the airbrush tho, aside from the airbrush I strictly only use pen and dodge. within all that i'm still getting used to all the tools on here, my artwork used to be completely sloppy before I got some pointers from you all. that really helped me a lot and thank you I'm sure that the information that you've given me and then information I already have will make me a better artist. thanks.

She looks like a mermaid!
kestrelflight [Profile] 2013/7/25 - 10:37:35
Na??? That's so awesome! As to your nah, maybe its the chest area thats throwing you off? Don't give up! Its too awesome for that!!!
imagamaker [Profile] 2013/7/25 - 15:39:30
gorgeous work :D
dreyacira [Profile] 2013/7/26 - 14:6:14
Very pretty. I love the eyes and lips, but I think the goldfish are my favorite. That little hint of scales on them is just so great. Beautiful work on this.
[anon]somefrog 2013/7/28 - 7:29:41
Ooh I hope that na doesn't mean you posted this by accident.
Either way this sure is pretty! Your colours and details are so wonderful & I especially like the way you handled that green.
[anon]mindastsya 2013/7/29 - 0:5:38
This looks amazing I love her facial expression, and the colors you picked look fantastic as well keep up the great work! :3

wow i don't know why i worked so long on this
anyway!! this is for inu112

i'm sorry this (and the others) are a little late. some extension i had on my browser kept Java from submitting anything, so i lost a lot of progress on other versions of this guy!!

anyway, this picture was so frustrating. i spent forever trying to fix his arms after i found out how awkward they looked zoomed out. UGH idk BUT

i didn't know anything about him besides his feather earrings so i just made him an egyptian or something because that's so cute AHaahhaHA
he needs to be my boyfriend

okay i hope you like this (despite the weird effing arms)

inu112 [Profile] 2013/7/24 - 20:28:8
He looks so precious! Wow, I love his outfit. This actually looks like something he might wear. haha. Thank you so much for drawing him. :)
dreyacira [Profile] 2013/7/26 - 14:5:21
I agree, his out fit is really cool! I always love your smooth, soft shading.

Oh my gosh, this is one of my best pictures!!!! This must be a good day for me, because I usually am never able to draw this good on the computer!! This is Ashstorm-Every Storm by Gary Allan(I was listening to this song the whole time I was drawing this) and What Hurts The Most by Rascal Flatts. These songs inspire me to draw. Why Ashstorm looks so sad is because Storm broke up with him, and he doesn't understand why Storm would choose Nightstar(Shadowpack warrior) over him. It hurts him so bad, but Storm never really was in love with him. It's sad, really. And do't tell me this story sounds like Squirrelflight and Ashfur from Warriors, I know. But I came up with their story BEFORE I read Warriors, so there.

catgirl [Profile] 2013/7/24 - 19:38:28
Awww, he's really cute, has a sweet face. Poor sad wolfie.
dreyacira [Profile] 2013/7/26 - 14:4:15
I love how you did his super shiny and pretty eye. Are you doing this all on one layer? If so, I suggest you break up the layers - put the lines on the top layer, then color underneath them. It will make it a lot easier to work without coloring over your lines.
nighstar54 [Profile] 2013/7/27 - 9:10:2
Yeah, I guess you're right. I'm honestly not at all computer updated, so it's hard for me to use layers, because I have trouble figuring out how to use them in the right way without destroying my picture. In a way, I'm used to old style drawing, and I am just starting to get kinda good at drawing on the computer with a mouse (I don't have an Ipad or anything). Thanks for the help, though.
nighstar54 [Profile] 2013/7/27 - 9:13:50
Actually, I covered over the lines to give it a special 'shiny' effect. I love using an airbrush to create reflections of light, too. It's really easy and useful, because I can just cover any mistakes.

frost_star [Profile] 2013/7/23 - 17:46:1
somehow I know I will have to beat you.
But I know i can't, what you have draw here is the smallest possible pixel drawing.

Good job.
dragongirl508 [Profile] 2013/7/23 - 18:36:5
but detail however... =P
dreyacira [Profile] 2013/7/26 - 14:0:54

Old character Trevlac, looks a lot different then the last time I drew him. [link]

skullzhead [Profile] 2013/7/25 - 3:47:44
Very nice improvement! I love his colors! That teal-ish color for his eyes compliments his fur awesomely.
dreyacira [Profile] 2013/7/26 - 13:58:50
Great improvement! I like his colors and I think you're doing a much better job with anatomy now.

I donít understand why I keep clawing at a wall that hasnít show signs of breaking down for years, if not my whole life. I donít understand why I continue even while I command myself to stop, I donít even acknowledge that I still claw at it.

I don't understand, and it bothers me.

kestrelflight [Profile] 2013/7/23 - 10:19:29
That's so sad! The wall really does make the picture. Awesome job :D
digidragon [Profile] 2013/7/24 - 19:57:34
thank you
dreyacira [Profile] 2013/7/26 - 13:57:12
I love the dark, subdued colors of this. They are perfect for the emotion you're trying to convey. And the way the fingers are bent against the wall is great, really gives us a sense of pressure.

not as good as crazy4dragons or dragongirl, but I did it!

I have no idea why I chose to be a plaguebringer, maybe it was the zombie factor? He looks super gross and creepy and stuff. Not the best looking dragon ever. Still cool though. My user is Oscramitten if anyone was wondering.

Go FlightRising!

lovelylonely [Profile] 2013/7/22 - 18:27:12
Hail Plaguebringer!
hehe c: I've always been a fan of plague-themed anything.
He looks great!
crazy4dragons [Profile] 2013/7/23 - 8:15:50
Pssh, your Plaguebringer is awesome! :)
She's pretty darn awesome. I like your background as well, really goes with the whole Plaguebringer... thing. XD
frost_star [Profile] 2013/7/23 - 17:53:34
thanks, I think the your Earthshaker is better
dreyacira [Profile] 2013/7/26 - 13:56:6
Seeing all these little icons kinda makes me want to get back into pixel art. I think this is great, the details are so tiny! I really love the shape of the dragon's long neck.
