More from me


EDIT: Fixed. the anatomy is still a fail anyways.

After i saw :iconlyvlet:'s char i HAD to draw him. SADLY i got him wrong and i was so stupid i even forgot his whiskers, since i dont know when i will be able to upload the new version after i edit it today i will just update.
This character is an albino Fossa even if it doesnt seems like one, i disnt have a photography to translate it from realism to this style im practicing duh ^^;
Will be corrected today.

You have a great style and attempted a very cool dynamic pose. The line work and shading is very simple, but subtle and effective, though I think maybe could have put some of the fur definition you have in some of the longer places throughout the body for consistency.
The biggest issue to correct would be the anatomy. His left arm is misproportioned and awkwardly posed. To help convey the action of the pose, it might help to lower the elbow and raise the forarm, which would require foreshortening. The right arm disappears behind the leg and then seems to bend like it's double jointed. Also the thumb almost appears to be coming from his foot at first. The angle of his left foot should be so that we can see the top of his paw a bit better, and also pointed a little more inward so that if continued, the lines of his feet would intersect insead of being parallel.
Some of the anatomy flaws are in species features. Fossa are feline-looking carnivores, their faces look sort of like a lion mixed with a weasel [link]. Here it looks more canine, almost wolfy. Their tails are also very long and thick.
One last consideration to make would be the motion of the character. He seems to be bouncing upward, so you can make the areas of longer fur have either some pull, like if he's still moving upwards, or sort of float loosely, like if he's reached the peak of his jump. It's a subtlety that can help make it look more alive and moving.
What do you think?

animales blancos = pesadilla de coloreo XD La verdad no tengo ni perra idea de la anatomia de esos animales como para darte una critica que sirva de algo, pero si puedo decirte que es de las primeras veces que veo un sombreado sobre blanco que no sea en tonos azulados y que me convence, fue una buena elección teniendo en cuenta el patron albino y el predominio de rojitos y rosados. Lo otro que me gustó mucho es la pose, no recuerdo si vi este sketch la ultima vez que fui a tu casa, pero mirando la imagen peque por un instante pensé que estaba saltando en una patineta, es muy dinamica y rima con la expresion :3
