    Yeah, I've seen it before, and it looks incredible if done well.

    Makes sense. At least you used them.

    People do it, though, and some are incredible with using lineless in colored pencil/mixed-media. Also, heh, I deliberately used up my old sharpies because I otherwise hadn't touched them in months. I've had them since late-last year and early this year, so I'd rather use them up than let them dry out. I have a good stockpile of colored pencils too, but have also been looking for another 24 pack so I keep that diversity up.

    I can't imagine going fully lineless, haha. That seems really difficult.

    Nice! Well, not using out your markers, but getting the new art supplies.

    Yeah, but it's something I'm going to have to practice because I'm working more towards anime and fine-arts styling now...or at least trying to. I was watching a series of tutorials on Youtube a while ago after a friend on FA linked me to it, but I only watched a couple episodes on lighting/shadow techniques that I found applicable with colored pencils. I'm still too chicken to go fully lineless... >.>

    Coincidentally, I just got a pack of regular drawing pens with fine pointed tips and Indian ink (which is supposed to be REALLY high-grade and waterproof). I'm thinking about doing more mixed media stuff since I don't just use pencils/colored-pencils anymore. I was using markers, but used them up on a series of butterfly abstracts I scribbled out earlier this month for the Inktober challenge.

    Yeah, it takes time. I hate drawing clothes, really. It's so difficult to get the folds right.

    Noted... Yeah, I've been having a hard time with drawing details in clothing... My skills have improved drastically the past few months, but they're just not where I want them yet... Guess I just need to keep practicing and see how things develop. I know I'll get things down in time, but for the present...meh... >.>

    Interesting. I think the main problem with the cloak is how it starts to wrap under towards the bottom, like someone stitched it that way. It gives the impression that it's a shirt more than a cloak. I don't think it should go past vertical, and a few wrinkles and folds wouldn't hurt since clothes like to move.

    It's the lack of details in the eyes. They're just kind of there. Other than that though, it's a nice drawing!

    I'm trying a different styling actually, that's why I linked it. Bolder lines, different proportions than what's supposed to be "normal," some exaggeration here and there... Her arms are actually covered by her cloak, so they're not visible, but I do agree about the issue with the body and the way I did the eyes...well, it's Pyra... She's crazy and kind of sadistic, so I guess I subconsciously made them non-expressive. It's just a headshot, so there's not much to really show, but it turned out better than my previous norm. I've actually been drawing crazily all month, but my main stuff's just been crazy butterfly abstracts for the "Inktober" challenge (where you draw everything in ink).

    I like the head, but the body is a little weird to me. I think the proportions are a bit too big. I'm also not sure where the arms are. You're definitely improving, and the coloring is getting smoother, but the body and maybe with the eyes as well. The eyes don't seem very expressive, which you definitely want since the eyes are the window to the soul. The shading is getting better, and the head looks pretty good! I can tell you're getting more confident too, which helps a lot.

    Incinermyn <-I'm sure you'll understand...or maybe not... I like blindsiding people out of nowhere after a month of no response time. :P

    A lot of history behind it all, that's for sure. Now I can go forth and conquer with my new found knowledge, haha.

    In some form or another, I'd imagine, but it didn't become "official" until the 1980s. I think the first con was like in England or something...not sure... I just know a lot of the longer-running ones are in Europe, supposedly.

    Interesting, I wonder if it was ever around before those cartoons rose to popularity.
  14. Incinermyn

    Yeah, they are. Furry fandom has its bases in Disney and Looney Tunes type cartoons. It originated in the 1980s particularly when they started coming out with more "furry" related media like Disney's Robin Hood (where the characters were all anthropomorphic animals and not just in the style of Mickey Mouse) and Disney's The Fox and The Hound (which is considered early "feral" styling in the fandom, since "ferals" are mainly animals with humanlike emotions and expressiveness).

    Cartoons do the same thing, so they're probably related in some way.
