Like my comment, I guess he got the news that humans are now extinct xD

Also, I'm still looking in to be an animator. I've been practicing the style, and here's a pic:

Janus is kinda scary when he's happy XD

Couple quick pointers without actually going into redlining:

Take the points off your ears -- our wolves' ears are actually pretty rounded.
Janus has tiny squinty eyes (so does Star, by the by)
Count your fluffles! Each char has very specifically placed fluff on their cheeks, chests, ears, elbows, etc.

Keep up the good work!
Zib, go suffer for your art.

Wait. 20 and 20 and 20 is not 50!

Most men with nothing would rather protect the possibility of being rich than face the reality of being poor. --from "1776"

There's a difference between the Electric Slide and a ballet.

Well, just think that you're looking somewhere in between the "bear" look and the pointy look :)

Hey hey just gonna pop in here for a sec and ask if you're doing a little life drawing every day? Drawing fruit, shoes, other people, etc can really help you when you come back to drawing wolves :D I started doing that again and my art has already improved a lot...so dooo iiiit!

Just draw what you see in front of you!

Also, Janus happy is an adorable drawing XD

NO ONE SAID IT WOULD BE EASY *cracks whip* !!!!

hahaha yeah it's hard at first..you get used to it though. It's not as fun as drawing what you want but man does it tone your drawing muscles!

I CHALLENGE YOU to try it for at least two weeks and see how it goes! Every day! Draw like...three things.

Only if you want to, but it's a good way to improve yourself...and drawing things you see in front of you helps with staying on model in animation. It's all about proportions :D

haha actually I used to draw the TV and things when I was sat watching something xD But yes I thoroughly recommend life drawing, it'll greatly improve your confidence with drawing realistically, even if you're not good at it at first doing a little bit every day - maybe just 5 minutes or less - makes a whole world of difference. I think I need to get back into it, other than my weekly lesson I hardly do it at all these days.
