I just saw Bristolwhip and all the work is gorgeous! You super awesome talented people! I wanted to know if you take reference for animal drawing, because you seem to draw & stylize them so well. I'm very stuck when it comes to animals. Help, please?
All self-taught in terms of animal drawing! My advice is, find a good animal anatomy book or three, head to the zoo, and draw them from life. There's also some really great guides on fiddly stuff (like bird wing anatomy and what domestic cat fur patterns are possible) by `Cedarseed.
Just a little note to say that this is my absolute favorite deviation on dA. :3 The bold colors, the lighting, the mood.. the composition.. it's just all perfect. It's one of my favorites that I actually come back to time and again~
