Some Herbs for Yellowfang? by cloversongcat Some Herbs for Yellowfang? by cloversongcat
I wanted to do a piece with Firepaw and Spottedleaf so I did the scene where Firepaw needs to go to her to get some medicine for Yellowfang. I have always seen Spottedleaf as my kitty Nakomi, who was hit by a car earlier this year. Her pelt is inspired by my late Nakomi.

I am not happy with my rock. I need more rock practice. My backgrounds are getting better slowly. I teetered for a while on whether to include the cats lineart and decided to in the end.

This took me about 25 hrs to do off and on over the past week when I wasn't sick with a stomach flu.

Anyways. First story art. In the end I am fairly happy with it. I used a couple of pictures from google for reference for the poses. I think I am getting better at cat anatomy.

Wow, you are talented! I can't imagine how much time and practice it took you to be able to draw like this, but it paid off, that's for sure. I am really impressed with the way you did firepaw's fur - the highlights, shadows, lineart...all is PERFECT! I look forward to seeing more from you in the future :) And I believe you just gained a watcher.

Thanks. I'm old and pushing 30 so I have a lot of practice under my belt. I am also going to University for my Bachelor of Fine Arts in Visual Arts so I will get some training in too. Mostly just lots of drawing, getting critique and following tutorials of my favourite artists. I should really start asking for critique on my pieces here in the future to improve more.

Wow, I suppose you do have quite a bit of practice! I only just began using references. I'm working on a piece right now that I'm about to upload that I used a reference - it works wonders. Indeed, critiques are extremely helpful.

References are extremely helpful. I believe you must understand your subject in order to convey them properly. Drawing without reference is like working on a car without the manual. Until you know it back to front you might make a mistake. You'll see yourself improve a lot.
