Hey so long time no see!

I've been recently very unmotivated in everything I do, because of personal reasons, so I thought about uploading some art I haven't gotten a chance to share here yet.

Here's the art:

Here's some icons/stickers that I made of my ocs:
Untitled6~06.png
Here's a piece I did for a friend's girlfriend,in a NitWs style:
Untitled6-1~06.png
Here's a new design for my fursona(more on this in the next image):
Untitled6~06.jpg
I recently decided to change up my fursona's looks, I got tired of his horns and eyes, so I changed it up a bit and made him look a bit better. I definitely like his new look a lot.

Here's the new ref sheet:
Untitled6~07.jpg
Here's a closer look at his new design:
Untitled7~02.png
Ok so that's all I have for now, but hopefully I'll feel motivated to do more soon. Bye!!

Hey I'm back again with some more art.

Here's a few pieces that I drew over that last few months

The first 3 are just busts of various faces of my fursona. I also added these to my telegram sticker pack.
Untitled6-1.jpg_new.jpg
Untitled6.jpg_new.jpg
Untitled6-2.jpg_new.jpg
Then I made 2 different badges for my fusona, one basic headshot badge and the other a half-body badge.
Untitled6.jpg_new_new.jpg
Untitled6-1 (2).jpg
I'll be posting a few more of these today.

Here's a few more pieces.

The first one is inspired by Harry Potter. it's just my fursona in some Ravenclaw robes casting the lumos spell. I actually like the final product a lot.
Untitled7~03.jpg
This next one is just a random piece I did of my fursona's eyes.
Untitled6-3~03.jpg
The final one is actually my favorite piece that I've drawn so far. This was inspired by the dress my oc thing on twitter and someone drew my fursona in this outfit. It was so cool, I just couldn't help but draw something featuring this outfit, so I drew my fursona look injured and tired due to fighting some unknown creature.
Untitled7 (2).jpg
Ok so that's it for now, but if I do manage to finish the pieces I'm currently working in a short amount of time, you might see more soon. I'll see ya whenever, sayonara!

Hey Tako, I like your art and I think your character has a lot of personality! I also like the way you use neutral colours for the base of your design and hen add brighter ones as highlights.

One part of your art you could maybe put some more thought into is your characters’ muzzles, particularly with regards to their proportions and perspective. The jawbone on your lower jaw ought to line up further back on your character’s head; the fangs coming out of it could use shading and shaping so they look don’t look so flat; the horn on it could be angled so that it looks like it is on the muzzle; and the muzzle itself could use some tapering and perspective. You could maybe make a larger bridge that tapers our at a more gradual slow between the top of your skull and your muzzle to make it look a bit more natural.

Lastly, you shaded some folds in your shirt which looks good, but you should try also shading every part of your character.

Anyway, thanks for sharing, and I hope the tips prove useful!
Hahaha! :lol:

Ok noted. I probably won't use any of those tips, and I'm not saying that to be spiteful or rude, I just enjoy drawing without any set rules or guidelines. I enjoy drawing a lot more when I just draw, even if things look oddly proportioned or flat, because I draw for me and I'm fine with that. I'm fine with things looking weird and incorrect, because that's my style and I like it. Also those shaded folds are just lines, I haven't shaded anything in a long time.

Still thanks for the feedback. I sincerely hope I didn't come off as rude.

No, not rude, but maybe a little stubborn. 😉

I’m not the best person to be giving advice on these topics so maybe down the line if you change your mind, you should look up some tutorials on those topics.

It can be fun to try new things, and it might become part of your regular drawing style if you do.
Hahaha! :lol:

Long time no see, mostly due to the fact that I wasn't in the mood to draw anything for the last 4 months but here I am with a few new art pieces to dump

The first 2 pieces were inspired by the Cthulhu mythos:
Untitled27-2~01.jpg
The next one is two variants of the same image:
Untitled28.jpg
Untitled28-1.jpg
These were all things I drew months ago.

The final piece is something that I drew recently and had to use a mouse to make it a digital piece, as I don't currently have my phone:
Neon050720.jpg
Ok so that's about it.
So see ya.

Hey so I'm back quicker than I thought, but I only have 2 pieces to dump here.

This first one is just something I drew out of boredom. It's just simply my fursona being hypnotized I guess:
Hypno080720.jpg
This next is something that took me a few days to do. I wanted to draw something way outside my comfort zone and this is what I drew:
Perspective240720-min.jpg
Both of these were made into digital artworks from sketches, with a mouse, so if anything looks a bit wonky that could be the reason.
That's all I have for now and maybe for a while, so see ya.
