Post Re: Art Dump
Cool stuff Rajani, always like the strong gestures you have in your animals. Two things I noticed, on the walking pose the far hind leg seems stretched just a tad too far compared to the nearest one (although that might just be my imagination tbh), and the knife in the mouth with the cutting edges going into the teeth/gums is probably kinda dangerous. :P
Besides being less cut-inducing I think it'd look more interesting to have the blade laying flat, as you get a more dynamic perspective that way rather than a straight on view. Or you could make the hilt longer so the blade is outside of the mouth, but then you might want to have the blade pointing out to the right to prevent it breaking the silhouette and drawing the eye out from where you want it to look.

zerozaku is site that i think is something like five or six years old (i joined around four ago), the community was previously heavily based of programmers and scriptors, particularly those interested in gaiaonline, and is actually the site i met robby/sothe on, so yes there are memories there for some of us. however, the board in its old state was completely wiped and the site is now under new management- it is very unlike the old version of it with even more changes to come. c: the staff feels very strongly about moving the site forward and we have some very skilled and driven developers on our team. i dont expect everyone to match my enthusiasm, but yes, the site (more specifically the community) means an awful lot to me.

thanks for these awesome tips (and the compliments)!! i agree, especially about laying the knife flat, that would make it look more dynamic, thats a really helpful comment. because this was the concept sheet i was still kind of messing with ideas and kind of wanted to display the knife, but ill keep these ideas in mind for next time because this wont be the last time our cat holds a knife :)

as for the leg on the bottom cat, i think youre right that it may be a tad long, but i dont feel its incredibly far off. cats have really uniquely flexible skeletons and the way the skin stretches over the body can make them seem almost amorphous. i kind of roughly outlined where the bones would be placed here, and i think its fairly marginal: http://i.gyazo.com/05d0ec58e2b86602e5faf7a815eacea4.png though i suspect there are some issues with this pose overall i cant quite put my finger on it.. perhaps the arch in its back is too extreme for its posture?

Np, yeah it looks like it's a little bit too long from your bones indication but it's not a big deal. You could select-drag the end to the left a little and that'd fix it. Same thing with the length of the upper front legs now that I look at it, those seem different in length (joint is lower on the near than far one).

I don't think the back arch is too extreme, it just suggests a slightly hunched forward stance. As it is, hunched forward, tail low and ears turned backwards, he/she seems to be sort of agressively pacing around. If that is the feel you're going for, maybe you're looking to emphasize it more still. I can't really think of how to do that though, don't have much experience on that myself

Why do you care about it so much. You could have just let it go down like how me and Sothe wanted it to be buried, but I don't think I ever got a personal reason out of you why you wanted it back or why it means so much to you in the first place.

Posting a piece of art from John McCambridge on DA, because it looks incredible.

He's definitely got the expression work down pat, that's for sure :p

I'll probably post one of the polandball comics I've been working on here sometime, I'm not a fan of the polandball subreddit anymore.
