I really like that your animal drawings have a sense of weight! It makes them seem 'realistic' even in these simple sketches. I think if you could incoporate just a bit of shading into them, it would really take them to the next level.

The horse running towards us is really great, I can see lots of movement there and feels effortless. I recomend more attention on the heads, proportions and angles, they are good, but not as good as the bodies you drew (that are really nice!)

good luck! you are doing really great


These are nice for a childrens book ruff layouts for a story of whatever story that you have in your mindset....so what are you waiting for...go forth and show the smaller book publishers what you have in ruffs and details, or go with an animal series of greeting cards that in my profesional opiion would sell some ....that's how good I thing these loose poses are....very sellable !


Thank you, I really appreciate the kind words! Currently I'm working two jobs which leaves me no time at home during the week. That said, I've committed to writing and drawing at least a little everyday. Right now Im doing gestures on my first break; it's usually less than 15 minutes, 30 to 60 seconds each pose. I know it's really not much, but something everyday is better than nothing right. Hopefully I'll be able to build on my dailies as more time allows.
