i'm trying and trying but for the sake of me I can't figure out how does the anatomy work on this one.

while i realize it's over-stylized and that's on purpose, your character has little chance of even standing up.

the throw up of additional effects and various coquetry you threw on it does not help to cover up the fact either.

what is the character doing, exactly?

im sorry but i did not design the clothes... this is a commission for somebody else's character, for, a bright colored background and simple shading. the reference sheet for her character is found here: [link]

the species is mine, though. they are not an actual species on earth, they more or less live in their own society and i allowed other people to make their own characters from my species.

she is jumping or something, not much thought went into this piece.

i appreciate the feedback and critique you have given me. how can i improve the anatomy?

well, i will explain my species a little first. ^^; the tail of the species usually sets on the ground, and is made of light, feathery fur, while if it was made of a dense bit it would hold them down

here is an example of an excellent alien species that has worked with having four arms as well [link]

the legs are animal legs, i got inspiration from anthromorphic animals. here is an example of an excellent anthro artist [link] notice the legs

i have certainly not mastered anatomy, but i have studied it to some extent.

Hyperstylization is certainly hard to master if you haven't yet mastered the basics of regular anatomy. People tend to turn to certain simplified styles instead of studying figure drawing while it should actually be the other way round.

Sorry for the late reply, but my Internets have forsaken me. Anyway.

Notice how the alien you linked has two sets of pecs. one placed on top of another, stretched over something I guess to be an elongated chest area witha few extra ribs. That pretty much means he must also have another set of shoulderblades so he could move his second set of hands right? Anthro is tricky. You take the anatomy of a human, but replace certain parts with that of an animal. Even if you are making up a spieces, you should still rely on basic anatomy. that means your characters should still have two sets of shoulderblades, pectoralis, shoulders, all the little parts that link up the arms to the main body.

Now yeah, I know it might sound a bit complicated and too much work to do figuring all that out. But if you just spend a day or two figuring out how exacly are your characters built, skeleton, muscles, skin, how everything links up to everything and you use real life references, the quality of your art will skyrocket. Don't take me wrong, but right now the lower arms look like glued, not growing out of the corpse.

The pose is another really important piece of good art. How will it affect the composition? How do you want the viewer to check the picture out? Mucha is a great example of that [link] even if you might consider art noveau a bit overdone. Look at how your eyes (huh) go around the picture you start at the face because that's the first thing a human eye notices. Her face is tilted so you instantly tilt your head to investigate it further and you can't help but guide your eyes through her hair and you follow the curve all the way to the cloth that she's holding around her waist. you follow the cloth down to the girl's feet and to the flowery motif ( arabesque? that's how it's called in my language). You go up the lines and onto the clith again. It curves so much you follow it all the way and into the circle in the background. Through the circle and onto the hair and face again. A trip trigerred only by a simple head tilt.
And even if you aren't considering those aspects, don't you want your pose to be clear? Like: yeah, this guy's jumping in anger or yeah, this guy is showing a sword with a kick into someone's face. But of course, dynamic poses are hard, that's why you mostly see characters chilling or nearly posing for a painting.

Work on anatomy. I know it may sound generic, but work on it. That's what every artist, myself included, needs. In four years of Art School, nobody has ever told us how to draw something, they didn't tell us to study how things are built. They just expected us to take a guess and do it right. Go catch up on reference photos or just simply play with your cat. Build body parts out of simple shapes. It's all down to maths really. Proportions are maths, geometry is part of mathematics. Why do you think da Vinci got so good with anatomy?

Sorry if it read hard to understand, but I suspect I might be high.

DREN IS BEST BLIKKIN

SRS

She is the most well-developed and least stereotypical and original fan blikkim I've seen to date ;-; someone just had to do it write and wolfchick was her. 8D

*slaps once* The shading. no. just no. the tail and the hair.

*slaps twice* Her expression. That sly grin, that dangerous eye. :icondatassplz:

*slaps thrice* The way her body twists! That must have been so hard to do DX fff especially considering the shirt and how that would hamper the hint of how her body is turned and such.

This must have been so satisfying to do :iconlazycryplz: I need to get my act in gear-- we're polar opposites when it comes to doing stuff.
