Q: I was linked to a tutorial here via critique. Does that mean I'm bad?
A: OF COURSE NOT! Every artist is unique, but every artist struggles in one aspect in some way. Every situation is different! This is an opportunity to improve and apply what you learn to your style!

Q: Can I link others to your posts here?
A: Most Definitely!!! Be courteous when you do so! Some people may be more offended than grateful. Ask the artist beforehand to see if they WANT it.

Original Reference

This is an AMAZING reference that compares the many differences between a lot of Big Cats! I found this extremely helpful since I have a few animals that are fashioned around a Tiger and Cougar (which now my be redesigned because I kinda like the cheetah, ounce, and leopard). Were any of these surprising to you?

Hope you find this helpful!

I know that the HARDEST thing for me to figure out is how to draw men that aren't all scrawny or bishonen lol So, here is a tutorial to make your men show more muscle and give them more variety (because not all men's abs are the same!)This is one of my favorite tutorials due to how in depth they go into it! Hope you benefit from this as well!
