You do beautiful art!!
All I can critique, though, is that on the last fox/dog that you did, on the legs where the grey meets the red, you should have more of a contoured line....it can't be straight like that, otherwise it looks like the muscles are completely flat and there is no bone.
Anything else where you made a straight line like that should be fixed, but otherwise everything is AMAZING!!!

I absolutely love the dragon.... the coloring is so contrasting and you really got creative with that!

thank you so much :) it means alot of me to hear even the smallest of a compliment these are just my progressions from first starting digital art, so far I am most proud of that dragon, and the one I am working on now. I just need to learn how to do decent backgrounds haha

That is great for just starting off! I can't really comment on anything but the horses as I don't do anything but the horses.

What program are you using? I hope I didn't miss this answer because I just skimmed through this post. I can say use bright highlights and dark shadows! It really makes muscles stand out.

Here are some examples that I've made to help with the making things stand out.
#1 & #2

If you have any questions just let me know and I'd be glad to help any way I can.

im now watching you on DA. You do some beautiful work!!

I am using Gimp. I tried Paint tools sai. But that was just a mass of confusion honestly. Lol

I am still getting a handle on my light sources, shading, and highlighting, but I like to think that I am slowly getting the hang of it lol

lilkitty, I'm curious - do you do the outlines as well as the colouring? I'm just confused, some of the pictures have different addresses for DA accounts on them.

(it's cool if you just do the colouring - I just wasn't sure!)
