Blue had a great idea to start a thread for questions to artists and about art.

So here goes :)

Use this thread to ask other artists about supplies and techniques, or just little things about art that you're sure are important but aren't sure why :) You can also ask where to get certain supplies, and about art/photo programs and things of that nature.

Wow, this is a great idea, I know that I can improve A LOOOOOOOOOT. I'm trying as best as I can to take this style, but it's still not working for me too much,

Q: How do you draw the paws? That's my main conflict.
Thankkies. :razz:

That's a tough one to try to explain in words!

My best suggestion to you is to do a search for "paw tutorial" on google or deviantArt. I know there are a lot out there. What's good for you is going to depend on whether you're going realistic or cartoon.

Here's a truly excellent one, for example:

OK, then: You've probably heard of polychromos, they're made by Faber Castell. I use Prismacolor pencils, with the colorless blender.

Prisma:
http://wildspiritwolf.deviantart.com/ar ... n-80341343

Polychromos:
http://kankakanka.deviantart.com/art/Illyria-85654864

Have you used either/both? Do you know what the main differences are, or what would be the most comfortable? I'm considering getting a few of the polychromos... but I still like my prismas, so... :D


And who are we asking? You, Uzuri? Or... if we wanted to ask someone in particular, do something like:

To: username here
and then the question


Thanks!
~Koey

Well, the basic idea is to ask anyone who wants to share, but if you want to ask someone specific, just make it the first thing in your post (like Dear whoever ;) )

This time around I can't help; I've only used primas :)

They're REALLY good art pencils: http://www.dickblick.com/zz205/08/

Nice thing about them is that they're available open stock -- you can buy only the colors you need. Nice for me, since back in my Crayola days I had a lot of sets sitting around missing the earth tones :)

OK, thanks Uzuri

SLuna: Don't forget the colorless blender! That's what you use to work with them... that's what I use.

Here's an artist who uses those for nearly everything:
http://wildspiritwolf.deviantart.com/

Colorless blender is a must. :cheese:

Ok, after doing this I would like to ask what is a good way to lay out my line of motion and the basic circles/squares that form a wolf?

Blue- It's difficult to describe the spacing of the base shapes when drawing a wolf. (Actually, I draw wolves so much, I just don't draw the guide circles anymore.)

The best thing to do is trace the basic shapes from an actual wolf photo. Then you can see the relationship. If you want to exaggerate any part, you now know how it will look in relation to the other parts.

Thank you for responding to my question Iris Canine, by now actualy I've tried this basic under skeleton method (just seeing how they all play out) but I have a good question for you.



After doing this is there any good way to get the muzzle in a proper position? Its really hard.

Thank you for your help!
