Oof, I’m way out of practice, but I think my fundamentals have improved a lot from the work I’ve done this semester.
Now if only I could get up to speed with my drawings.
The character’s name is “Pyrexia”, by the way. She’s actually a full on dragon, but often takes on a humanoid form so she can better fit through doors or mingle with the smaller races. She’s also got a bit of an ego.
I actually think its really cool seeing the construction lines going on here. Really helpful for defining shapes for things like hands. Also really neat drawing too :3
So to those that might not get many asks or just dont know what pose they might want to do here is the Palette-Pose Maker!!
And I think it goes without saying that if you get a number+letter that dont exist pick again!

Since it was Munday, I decided to do a small art reference project for myself. And then I decided to make it public with the following notes.
From Left to Right, Top to Bottom:
What NOT to do (front):
- Don’t chicken wing your arms! Although it might be easier to hold the rifle, you will make yourself a bigger target.
- Don’t close your one eye! You will lose your depth perception, which is crucial when you are on the move, or are trying to determine how far away your target is
- Don’t keep your legs haphazardly strewn about. You need to make sure you’re balanced!
What to do (front)
- Keep both eyes open
- Bend your elbows downwards and towards the ground to make yourself a smaller target
- Bend your knees to control the gun’s recoil + be ready to move.
What NOT to do (side)
- Don’t put the stock above your shoulder
- Don’t lean back.
- Both of the above reduce your control over the weapon and may result in a black eye, and the rifle flying backwards and out of your hands.
What to do (side)
- Bury the stock of the rifle into the meaty part of your shoulder
- Lean into the gun to keep the gun under control when the recoil of the gun kicks the gun upwards or to the side
- Bend your knees slightly to lean forward, as well as make yourself a smaller target
- The soldier is relaxed and is most likely moving around.
- His eyes are searching for possible threats
- His hands are still on the rifle, even if he has a sling on
Low Ready Stance
- Possible threat has been detected
- Entire body shifts towards threat direction
- Stock is shouldered
- Eyes are focused on the possible target
- Gun barrel is pointed in the target’s general direction, but not directly at the target.
- Immediate response
- Soldier fires off shots while screaming to the other people in his team
- "CONTACT!" or "THREAT!"
Fucking finally! I saw this a few weeks ago and forgot to reblog it and then I was working on something where this would have been useful.
A gift for my lovely boyfriend, Duke, of his maned wolf persona, lookin’ snazzy as always.~
I’ve been drawing anthros (and humanoids in general) seriously for less than a year now, and I’m feeling pretty happy with my progress so far! Still have lots to learn, but I’m gettin’ there. <:
