I see you’re compensating for a lack of ribcage and creativity with an overabundance of edge.
Sidenote:: Since to a lot of people this is really good art, let me explain what I see wrong with it.
Working in animation as a concept artist, when you design something, you want it to look like what it is. This is supposed to be a pomeranian/shiba inu mix.
This is what one in real life looks like:
The dog is fairly bulky, witha heavy-set body, proportionally small legs, a short neck and pointy ears on a foxlike face.The designed critter is very thin with long legs, bulbous paws, a wolf-like face, a big, fluffy tail and very rounded ears. It’s basically a wolf branded as something slightly more creative.
Then my anatomy gripes. It has no ribcage. At all. It’s just a sausage of poorly drawn sparkledog with legs. Speaking of the legs, all of the joints are completely off. The elbow and knee should line up with the chest, and the hell should be higher up. The paws are also just way, way too big. The hair hides it (probably unintentionally), but the head is bulbous and disproportionate. The neck just makes me cringe.
And there are just things in general that bother me. The hair, the earrings, the fact that a dog is bisexual and likes “brutal sex” (i’m not against bisexuality or anything, it’s just that pack animals with a single breeding pair in a pack would have no survival-related benefit from homosexuality/breeding of any members other than the alphas. i’ll talk about this more in-depth at some other point)… where do I start?
Blogger:look ok I know that some developers make alternate skins or looks for one character to stretch out models and movesets but costumes that erase a character's disability are not good. In many ways they don't depict the same person. they are not like playing green peach vs. normal peach in SSB. And people who use them as reasons to draw non-disabled versions of characters should probably get some perspective.
protest:no!!! artistic freedom!!! art isn't supposed to be accurate! I can do what I want!!! fictional characters aren't real and no real person is like a fictional character! fictional characters can do and be anything!
