Fang Is Piiiissed by tribble-of-doom Fang Is Piiiissed by tribble-of-doom
And then there's that one time every year when I attempt to do a digital painting and fail spectacularly.

THIS IS WHY I STICK WITH CARTOONS AND BIG THICK BLACK LINES OKAY.

Cons: The thing that I notice first is the way the ginger color and the grey color meet, it's like they aren't supposed to be..attached. The problem would be easily fixed with some light blurring, though. The next thing is the lack of chest fur. I think the painting overall would have more effect if Fang had fur details on him, especially his chest. Also, The way Fang is facing we should be able to see some of his right eye. The fur is another thing that bugs me. Wolves have fluffy necks, usuallt, and wouldn't have just a few tufts sticking out. I think it would be an improvment if you just evened out the whold chest fur.

Pros:
I really like the way you did the mouth and nose, it's done very well and gets Fang's emotion across quite clearly. I also like the way you did the background. You didn't have too many thing going on in the BG like most people do, and made the main focus the wolf. Your anatomy is also pretty well done, as well as the shading and lighting.

Overall this is a very lovely picture with a few minor mistakes that could be easily fix. Keep up the good work~

This really brings out your talent. It looks like you worked on it really hard. I love how it looks more realistic than your usual work! This is a really good piece of artwork! I also love the way the scars look. You showed that the scars on the muzzle would be darker, and that the fuller scars on the eyes would be more vivid in the color. and the focus, looks as if I am focusing in on hi through a camera. :) Nice work Tribble, you brought a character to his best once again! Good Work!

This is good though!! Don't be so harsh on yourself :3
Keep practicing at it, that's what I'm up to lol...For me it's a lot simpler to paint on top of a sketch rather than to paint within lines and then later try to remove them? If that makes sense...
Some crits, if you don't mind: the angle of the muzzle compared to the rest of the head (looks a little too tilted compared to placement of ears for example), a little more "depth" in scars ^^ this actually just inspired me to paint a very scarred-up person...

(I don't have premium membership to give critiques and I'm in no way a digital painting expert but here I go) I think overall you could have pushed the textures a bit more. You really nailed them in the nose, eyes, and mouth areas, but the fur overall just seems a bit flat to me. I can see hints of texture in the fur in the ear, so I think if you repeated that throughout the rest of the fur that would suggest a bit more texture.

I think another reason why it looks a bit flat is because you used a darker shade of gray to shade the gray areas of his fur. Using black to shade tends to make things look flatter, more often than not. I can see that you used darker shades of orange to shade his orange fur, and it looks good to me, but with the gray you're getting a bit close to black. I would recommed pulling in some colors from the environment he's in; using hints of green on a mulitply layer might help suggest he's more "in" the environment, rather just having him look as if there's merely something behind him. (Does that make sense?)

Either way, I think you understand the basics of digital painting and how it works technically, but I would suggest a bit of research into color theory and texture to make things look more realistic, if that's what you're going for.

Hope this helps, and keep practicing! ^^

Its honestly not that bad, lacking wolf anatomy in certain areas, but this doesnt have to be realism. its more of an influenced style from your cartoons.

This is really good, the shading is near perfect and the anatomy is great. What you might want to do is make the top of Fang's nose slightly less rounded and bring his lower jaw in slightly. As for his ears you may also want to bring them closer to the top of his skull. I hope this helps, I'm a little new at giving critique. c:

I think it looks alright, but quite wobbly. The snout should be more aligned with the eyes to make it look more natural, and although you can still make it look cartoony I think you should've closely references what wolves actually look like when growling. I think you should paint more often tho (:
