I happen to make a lot of drawings in my spare time, so I have them all in the drawing part of my Photobucket album. No need to worry because I made it public. So far, I made drawings of Chao (only 2), furry versions of some characters of Soul Calibur II, and characters from my fanfic Hoenn Mirror World (http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=24826).

Here's the link: http://photobucket.com/albums/v250/Ida-chan/drawings/

Enjoy na no da!

Thanks. I'm glad you like them. I might draw some more HMW characters and SC furries over my Winter break.

I was going for a bit of anime styled drawing. It's not easy at all. I had a rather hard time drawing Lyoko.

Not bad... The legs are a bit small since there not really chibbi drawing. Check out the resources thread and look up some tutorials for proportions. You have a kawaii start :3

Hmm... Manga Tutorials look pretty good. I'll use that to draw a better picture of Lyoko.

Sorry to have abandoned this place in so long.

Another Pokemon I made up! It's a Sicub.

Also, I bought this "How to Draw Manga" kit and checked out the online anime-manga drawing tutorials in hopes of improving my art. However, that was a waste of money. I tried drawing Lyoko after reading it, and I made her look WAY too old. I was trying to make her look seven, but she looked like 14...and I hate to see how the other characters would look. Don't worry about seeing their horribleness because I threw those stupid drawings away...the exact same thing that I'll do to that kit tomorrow. And I won't even bother looking at an online tutorial. I'm sorry, but rather than helping me, they ruined me.

Anyway, enough of my frustration. Enjoy the new Pokemon I made.

A very cute Pokemon Nekomajo!

I do agree that the art isn't top notch, but all good artists have to start somewhere, right? I remember drawing like that at one point in my life and remembered the 3 P's: Practice, Practice, Practice!

What I would do is study the anatomy of anime characters and practce drawing that. Bathing suit and/or nude pictures help best in that category but you could skip the nude pics and just use bathing suits and clothed people. Not all clothes are that tight and next to the skin, give it some looseness and maybe some folds.Find a picture of your favorite anime character and draw what you see (Don't trace!).

With the 3P's, anyone can improve.

With me for an example (oekaki pictures):

Now, I find this uber,uber,uber crappy in my eyes

And I kept using the 3P's and improved...

Just don't get discouraged and keep it up! :D

Don't trace!
I'll be honest with this one. In some areas, I DID end up tracing. Some of the pictures would probably be worse than they were if I didn't.
