Your colored pencils are getting smoother. I like the faint differences in her facial features.

Thanks a bunch! I used different colors and gradient for the shading.

Since I'm a afan of both the Guardians of the Galaxy (pre-Bendis) and Steven Universe, I decided to draw the 2008 Guardians team members as gems. Emulating Rebecca Sugar's style is fun.

I'll post the colored versions once I finish them.

Here's my Guardians Gems pieces finished. The only ones I haven't drawn yet are Bug and Jack Flag (I could include Nova too).

Nice work keeping the skin tones complementary to their gem type. The choice of background also helps make the characters pop out.

Thank you very much! I chose a dark background to contrast.

I remember the girl with the lion but not the merboy or the aged fairy. Those are impressive!

Thank you very much! The first one was my first pciture colored with photoshop, the aged fairy was fun to do, I got inspired by Granny Weatherwax from Discworld.

Otto, what are you doing here? Nice! I love otters ^_^

Thanks! Me too! The topic was "mix an animal with a plant motif", so I drew an otter with aquatic plants.

If I was in that class, I would've done a Chrysanthimum and spider theme.

That sounds cool! Is there a reason behind it?

Chrysanthemum petals look like spider legs and I love Chrysanthemums.

I decided to make her a full hare instead of a hare-otter hybrid.

If I could do a proper critique, you might want to make the back heel of the feet lift up to give a reference to how rabbits stand on fours. I suggest looking up werewolf tutorials for reference. IT'll make the feet look less fat.

Is the light blue coloring on purpose are did the burnishing dull the dark colors? Please understand, I'm just curious.

To improve the lineart, you might want to use a ballpoint pen or something similar to make the lineart pop up. Scanners have a hard time picking up pencil marks unless you use a digital editing software to make the lineart leveled to the point that it fits what you see on the paper.

Thanks for the critique! Yeah, drawing feet (human or animal) is hard.

I tried using a lighter color, mainly to experiment. Do you think it looks better darker or lighter?

I used ink markers, my lineart is usually thin. This time I didn't use the editing tool tho.

If you could make the colors a bit more saturated, that'll help maintain the original dark color while carrying over the soft touch. Lot of shows like Steven Universe,Gravity Falls, and MLP use saturated colors instead of bright since it helps the viewer gaze on in comfort.

Ah, okay, sorry for me assuming the linework.

Evening, here, I heard art (thanks for the tip, @minespatch) and lurched here, happy to find another subject to stalk follow and support in this worthy endeavour. I see you've got animal drawings, @Ambarina, I'm enjoying the thread. My money is on the squirrel.

But pray tell, a little bird told me you also write. Is there something you could use a willing ear for? I'd be happy to help.

I....kiiiinda write? I have a story I've been working on for years, in comic book form, but I'm too lazy to continue it, despite having it almost entirely planned out.

On a different note, I've been writing fanfiction, but my subject of writing causes me more trouble than ideas. I chose a super-mega-obscure character, originally for shipping reasons, but now because I want to save her from her bad narrative. At first I used her for RPing (since 2014) but now I've been writing her in fanfiction too. 

Any help is appreciated. Thank you again!

Great to see both of you finding each other. Both of you know how to write, so good luck on both of your endeavors.

If only I can be of service, please allow me. As far as game fanfiction goes, I'm comfortable with Dragon Age, The Dark Eye (always!), Thief and Don't Starve (+ Together, of course), however luckily I should be able to be of some use in other fandoms too since the basic principles remain the same. And roleplaying games are always welcome :). I don't know what form of contact you'd like, the forum PMs are a bit limited, but I've got Steam, Discord, DA.

The pleasure is mine, Mines! You know it.

I'm in none of those, though I'm considering playing Don't Starve (I know, I know...). I have a dA, my name is Violeta960, and I'm Ambarina90 on Steam. 

Thanks again!

DA Notes or steam should work for private messaging. Hope they work for both of you.
