That is beautiful! His fur looks so... real, so warm... almost inviting, you could say. I love how the nails are sharp, and slightly long... it shows that he's still an animal, like he still had claws. The best part has to be the face... it seems to look so smooth, so rounded... perfect... c:
Beautiful! Everything is so smooth yet crisp. The background is great, the burn rust color looks wonderful with the brown. All in all the eyes are what put power into this piece, the drink itself making things a bit more lax and setting a calm mood.
Heh. I'm not really much of a fan of anthro work, but this really blows me away. The humanity is strongly apparent, and I guess that's what sets it apart for me. A lot of anthro work looks staged, but this has a more realistic feel, like you literally just candidly drew this guy while he sipped a drink in a bar.
That's the whole idea though, isn't it? Imbuing animals with human characteristics, both physically and mentally? I don't know why so many people seem to skip the latter.
o_O I don't think I can ever draw again. Everytime I draw something, I'm gonna remember this, and it's gonna look like crap in comparison to your stuff! Your detail and shading and anatomy... everything is perfect! Plus anthros just rule, you get a fave!
This reminds me of when I was playing Spycraft. The soldiers were being attacked by some wolf thing, so I was saying geneticly altered/inhanced wolf. Another person was joking around and saying werewolf.
some of the best drawn art i've ever seen has been anthro art. It requires skill, the knowledge of body composition, the ability to draw fur, basically the ability to draw both animals and people making anthros really hard to draw. Its not something to take a dump on...
I wasn't dumping on anyone's art, I simply stated that I usually don't bother with this type of art, but this artist did an amazing job with this piece.
Go back and re-read, because if I wanted to "dump" on someone's work I'd have said it was crap or something, but I clearly didn't. Don't turn this into a flame fest please. (wasn't even talking to you anyways)
Again amazing work (since it was missed the first time)
