I certainly don't post art here as much as I used to. I'm gonna try to change that. :)

Yep, it's an art trade with that good ol' Arbok guy! Remember him?

Sure, it might have taken me 4 months to complete it but hey, better late than eternally postponed.

Here's his side.

Comments and criticism is appreciated. :D

Proportions look really weird, almost too human with too animal of a body.

I'm assuming you're talking about Arbok. Yeah, I was really eyeballing things there and I probably made the legs too long and forgot to compensate for the fact that the legs were bent.

It doesn't help that standing meerkats already look kinda weird to me.

Parts of the anthro-style were intentional though, like the arms and the upper body to make the pose work, but yeah, the legs really should be shorter.

Oh well. Standing animals are weird like that. Gonna have to keep that in mind next time I draw them.

Aside from proportion issues the image looks fine. What size do you generally use for lineart? I've been using 7px as my default for a while, but that is seeming to me to be a little thick for smaller images like an avatar or details. I've switched to 4px for a new avatar I'm drawing up using a multi-layer lineart technique seen on that CtrlPaint site Falcon sent me a link to in the Helpdesk thread.

I did mostly mean Arbock, but it goes on with Dylan too, mostly in the arms i guess?

Oh yeah. I think I made his arms too long.

Granted, these aren't exactly supposed to be all that realistic, but it still looks weird, now that I step back and look at it.

Well more things to think about for the future I suppose.

I use a pressure sensitive tablet and a 15px brush. Most of the time the brush only goes up to 10px because I don't push too hard on it. The size of your brush is more dependant on the size of your canvas. I usually start off with a 3000x3000 pixel canvas and expand it when I need more space, so using larger brushes still works out. If you're using a smaller canvas of about 1000x1000 or less, then yeah, you're gonna have to significantly downsize your brush, or draw on a large canvas and shrink it later. Using a large canvas allows you to work on details and make things look nice and pretty so it looks even better in small scale.
