Random from Tutorials

A collection of in my opinion pretty good tutorials. Most of them I like to use myself.

Nonsense, thy name is t0xic! (got tagged)

Journal Entry: Thu Sep 4, 2014, 6:11 AM
This journal does not make much sense, ignore it if you want.
I am just a bit stressed, because I encountered some more serious roadbumps, that will, if not resolved seriously endanger my way into college.
I still will mostlikely lag in the reply department. Currently hiding in a hole some miles away from home (with "hiding" I mean "crashing and raiding the hole owner's fridge", with "hole" I mean "said fridge's owner's place" and by "some miles from home" I mean "like halfway through the freakin' state")

Also, "getting tagged" sounds like contracting an STD. Virtually.

Anyway, to the nonsense part.

10 random facts about myself:

1. I prefer reading books on paper to ebooks, but still have a larger eBook library.
2. I like watching my dog sleep. *notweirdatall*
3. Only animals that I get along with are assholes, which also seem to be the only ones drawn to me.
4. If I have to, I am not a picky eater, which does not mean that I don't have good taste.
6. Drawing is very important to me.
7. Nightowl.
8. I randomly start playing video games. In that times you cannot seperate me from the screen even with a crowbar.
9. I dislike talking.
10. I cannot spell in three different languages, that I am suppose to be able to.

And here the questions I got asked by :devxxlilprankingdevilxx.deviantar…::

1. Do you have any pets?

2. What languages can you speak?
-English, mostly. I used to be able to speak spanish, but I forgot most of it. German, but that is rather questionable.

3. What anime series have you seen?
-Too many to list. Lotsa new ones. Can't remember most of the names though.

4. Do you like playing outside?
-Sure, unless there is sun. Then no.

5. Do you play any sports? (If so...specify...)
-I'm bicycling. Nothing fancy, long treks for endurance. I prefer sports I can do alone.

6. What are some of your favorite hobbies?
-Drawing, playing video games, bicycling, daydreaming, reading, playing with my girls, doing nothing, manual labor (YES! Like sport a nice way to balance out all the sitting about while drawing stuff)...

7. What is your favorite animal?
-I cannot say I have one absolute fav animal. I like many. Canines (wolves and many dog breeds), insects (like spiders, praying mantis, bees, bumblebees...), reptiles (like comodo dragon...), horses and other equines. Exotic birds and snakes. Aquatic mammels. And of course the whaleshark.

8. Do you play any instruments?
-Used to. Flute, trumpet and piano. Still can play the flute a bit, and piano, although learning piano was mostly autodidactic.

9. Do you get bored easily?
-Very. Enough that my family starts to get annoyed regularly.

10. Are you good at making friends?

-Absolutely not. INFP, remember? (don't know? Look it up!) I suck at it and mostly avoid social gatherings.

I tried to get as close as real as possible but I always get stuck with the same carttony anthro art I have. I wish to be as great as you. Yours truely Selena.

Err, I am not good at giving advice.

One advice, one you'll get from lotsa artists, practice. A lot. (something I still don't do :/).
As for the style, if you want to have a more realistic style, look at more photos of animals. Take one species first (like wolves, they are very popular and you'll find a lot of tutorials on wolf anatomy here on dA) and start small. Not size-wise, but from a detail level. First only concentrate on shapes, try finding simple shapes in their anatomy. Like here:
Only work with simple shapes at first, later add more details. The shapes will help you get a better feel for the proportions and stuff and help you later draw animals free hand (no refs).

All in all you started out pretty good from what I see in your gallery. But no matter how you start the most important part is that you take your art serious. If you really want to improve and work on it seriously you will manage. c:

Hope that helps.
