Re anthro Rainbow Dash: it looks awesome to me save one thing, and I think it may be a topic of more personal preference. The hoof/foot. I prefer to either see a hoof or a foot. The half and half bothers me. But otherwise spectacular. Keep it up!
It’s a choice, I assure you. It’s a fundamental part of my anatomical formula for anthro characters. For mammals, I insist on following the bone structure of the rear limbs of the original species. For horses, in particular, I can say that the alternative of looking at legs as stumps with hooves on the end does not sit well with me.
Thank you so much for your support, and I hope that you did not miss the finished anthro Rainbow Dash piece, which you can find elsewhere in my blog. You can find it here.
Here is a bonus sketch I did just now, which I hope will help convey the virtues of some of my aesthetic and anatomic options regarding anthro ponies. Enjoy!
Some fox studies as I prepare for my final senior project pitch in the fall~ Even though my kitsune will be much simpler and cartoony, when animating an animal its good to be familiar with their anatomy an skeletal/muscle structure. Unfortunately I could only find a reliable bone structure online :/
I agree about Gigi's body. She looks amazing but having her body is so unrealistic for me because I don't even have her bone structure to start with. For me her body is like a dream body- a dream that could only come true if I had surgery like everywhere haha
Haha I was just telling an anon that her body is dream-like. I couldn’t ever have her figure either xx

TUMBLR, LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT MY FAVORITE LIZARDS!!!!
1) New Caledonian Giant Gecko (Rhacodactylus Leachianus) My favorite lizards in the entire world. They are giant lumpy wrinkle monsters and who doesn’t want a gecko the size of a kitten? These guys can reach sizes larger than a foot in length.
Each locale has different personality (offshore leachies can be more tame than ones from mainland) but they are all unique.
My favorite locale is Nuu Ana for their cute stubby faces and heads, and Poindimie for their beautiful coloring. They make silly grunting noises and are usually territorial. I just love these lovely pile of lumps so much.
2) Gargoyle Gecko (Rhacodactylus Auriculatus) I have never met a garg I didn’t love. These guys have a ton of amazing colorations, and beautiful bone structure! Gargs get their names from the little horns on their head. They are generally calm and easy to handle. My girl loves cuddling up to me and falling asleep. They are such sweet, beautiful geckos!
Tokay Gecko (Gekko Gecko)
I love an animal with attitude. These guys are typically known as mean little sass monsters. They are second largest geckos next to R. Leachianus which also makes me love them even more. They have beautiful coloring and are excellent hunters, and pack quite the bite!
Leopard Gecko (Eublepharis Macularius)
These guys are THE cutest, happiest looking animals in the world. There is no way you can look at a leopard gecko and NOT smile. Look at their faces!! They are so cute I would let them take all my money, my house, and my car. I just want to squish them and smooch forever.
5) Bearded Dragon (Pogona Vitticeps)
My first lizard love, and the laziest animal I have ever met in my life. I saw these guys at a petsmart years ago and my boyfriend and I fell in love. They’re such docile little angels and they make great cuddle buddies. I love an animal I can put clothes on without it complaining. Spiky pancakes are amazing, lovely animals and everyone needs to pet their sag bellies and lizard boobs.
6) Crested Gecko (Rhacodactylus Ciliatus)
These sticky lil buggers have the cutest faces!! Such wonderful smiles, and those lashes, oh am I jealous. They are so squishy and adorable. Basically walking potatoes with pretty pretty lashes. What’s not to love?
7) Mexican Alligator Lizard (Abronia Graminea)
Probably the most beautiful lizard ever?? They deserve modeling contracts, all of them. Not much is known about them in captivity, and sadly most are wild caught. But they are such a beautiful lizard I couldn’t help but include them in my favorites!
8) Frilled Dragon (Chlamydosaurus Kingii)
When I was a kid and someone said “lizard” these are what I pictured in my head. I had a little plastic one too! They are just so amazing looking and beautiful! I want an army of these awesome guys.
9) Savannah Monitor (Varanus Exanthematicus)
These big dogs are so adorable and fat. Who doesn’t love a big dog? I love how they seem to bond with their owners (given proper care and personality) and of course their size! They are incredible animals
Don’t they look like they came out of a video game drawing? Such amazing designs these guys have, and they have a wide color and pattern range. They’re so incredible looking I had to include them on the list.
I have a prompt for you!! Bellarke: im in a diner, you appear and i throw all my coffee on my shirt because I was sketching you and you glanced so i got nervous.
LYDIAAAA!!! Thank you for being an awesome supporter of my fics, I hope you like this :) This feels a little different then some of the other stuff I produce, but it was fun to write and I kinda like it - so hopefully you’ll enjoy it too
When Bellamy swaggered into the diner with a wave toward Murphy working behind the counter and a call of hello to Miller, Clarke was hit with the same realization she was hit with every time he entered. If he ever found out how many stupid drawings she had done of his stupid face she was totally “please don’t call the police on me I promise I’m not a stalker” screwed.
It wasn’t her fault he had a bone structure she could trace for hours or freckles that were sprinkled almost so perfectly it felt like an artist had put them there, and she certainly hadn’t asked to be burdened by his playful smirks and searching eyes, but alas here she was. All she had was a mediocre hobby that lead her to pathetic hours between her diner shifts spent trying to get his chin dimple mapped to perfection.
If someone was truly looking out for her in this world, he would have decided he really didn’t like the coffee here that much and then maybe he would disappear, allowing her to forget about him. Clarke knew that wasn’t possible, the days he was gone were the days she sketched rough versions of his hands on napkins like a student flipping through flashcards as they tried to push every last scrap of information into their memory, but the lie of it kept her a little more grounded. As he sat down at the counter and took a sip from the coffee Murphy had just slid him, she flipped back through her sketchpad and found the picture she was looking for.
I'm white & have a white friend who is interested in genetics. he tells me people of various races have genetic traits such as thicker bone structures than our own and that, for instance, his black friend would likely be able to accumulate more body mass than himself for having been born into another gene pool. Does this make him at all racist in thinking or does it perhaps make myself at all racist for wanting not to engage in such subject matter seeing them as an irrelevancy in our daily lives
Listen, I know science can seem overwhelming, but just because someone claims they’re “interested in genetics” doesn’t mean that you have to listen to them when they spout out a bunch of unsupported, factually inaccurate ideas about genetics that just so happen to support racist stereotypes.
