Here we have Partran, a little older, a little wiser, and certainly looking very classy. Now this is a tiger that can appreciate the finer things in life!

Character belongs to Partran of FA, image by yours truly.

Like a sir.

I love your art style so much! You do a wonderful job with furries, especially. If it's not too much trouble, I have a few questions to ask: How long have you been drawing? And what kind of program do you use (I'm assuming photoshop)? I hope it's not too personal...

Thanks very much! And sure, I don't mind answering your questions. :)

Hm, well, I've been drawing since I was old enough to hold a crayon (my first real memory of anything arty is a drawing of a Ninja Turtle I drew for a kindergarten classmate). These days I primarily use Photoshop, but I've also had formal training in oil and watercolor painting.

Ahhh, you HAVE been drawing a long time, then. And oils and watercolors, interesting.

And you taught yourself most of the photoshop tricks, I assume.

Do you have any tips on drawing animals for an beginner/intermediate artist, other than practice, practice, practice?

Well, nothing beats drawing from life, but if a trip to the zoo/preserve isn't always practical, photography works, too. It's really just a matter of paying attention to shapes and proportion. All drawing really is is just learning to see, if that makes sense. Practice, practice, practice only works if you can eventually identify problems in your art and correct them.

I recommend reading "The Art of Animal Drawing" by Ken Hultgren as an intermediate book. It's honestly the only book I've come across that isn't daunting or overly simplistic (I can't recommend how-to-draw books that use the old 'draw a circle, now another' schtick, because they don't actually teach you how to think in 3D about what's being drawn). This book in particular focuses on action and motion.

Ooh, I'll write that down. Thank you so much for the tips! That does make sense to me. And thinking in 3D, just that though itself might change my level of drawing. Thank you so so so much!
