Scuba jump 8D by CunningFox Scuba jump 8D by CunningFox
A third commish for my most avid commissioner ~scubawolf hes commissioned pictures of MY fursona every time o.O but who am I to question heh.

Im gonna rip this one apart just so you guys don't have to name all the multiple FAILS I did.
1. THE BOAT. I fail at structures vehicles and any sort of robotic things... sooo its no surprise my boat looks flat and fake, wierdly set up between old fashioned and new looking too (I didn't use a reference) so im sorry for the crappyness of the boat.
2. The water and clouds im ok with but I had to struggle with it alot just to look right.
3. happy with the pose and the suit mostly.
4. LOOOOOVE the lifesaver ring hanging up in the back -dork-

well thats my feelings on this one. Got it done fairly quick too.

Holly's going to jump into the water! It's a nice thing you drew the wolf in scuba gear.

Mmkay, cool.
There's only one or two things I noticed wrong with the drawing. And not really wrong persay.
Her muzzle seems to big compared to the rest of her head. And her tail has the opposite problem, it might just be the position and whatnot, but it seems kind of small.

I think its the perspective with the tail flying back but yeah I was kinda irritated with how it looked on the finished product, maybe size was the issue? As for the big muzzle thing thats just my style xD I get that all the time.

I think the water and clouds are wonderful! The way you incorporated a bunch of different blue and green tones into the water is very realistic. It must be uncomfortable pulling her tail through a little hole in the wetsuit...but she looks happy enough. :)

I can't begin to tell you how much the water fought with me but im glad with how it came out in the end. and ouchies yes! Though I assume most anthros/etc would have problems like that with clothing xD Thanks!

Not that you would be doing much in Canada but do you actually scuba-dive?

Otherwise this pic is good :D. I can just image the expression of some fish when they see her inter the water :XD:.

Personally despite being Australian I have never scuba dived. I get kinda freaked out going into water thats deep, Hell I get freaked out a hellova lot more if I can't see the bottom (so I always swim with goggles in the ocean) I have however snorkeled at the great barrier reef which is a real aussie landmark. Buuut the commissioner wanted it so thats what I drew for him x3

^^ would you mind telling me exactly what you think makes it good? Or do you see anything I can improve on? It would be very helpful to my art! Hahaha those poor feesh

Oh! And as for the whole scuba-diving I really hope you will actually try it sometime. I'm a bit strange in a way because my biggest fear is drowning. But I LOVE to scuba-dive! Awkward huh :hmm:?

I do suggest scuba-diving though. My first trip to Cozumel, Mexico was great :w00t:! During the trip I got to swim with sea turtles, octopuses, a shark, and many other great sea critters. I even did a night dive which was amazing! I was scared at first but it wasn't all that bad. And the best part was when I looked up to the surface and I could see the full moon reflected on the water. I got a since similar to that when you look at a perfectly clear sky and you can see all the stars.

Anyway, my point is that scuba-diving is great and I hope you'll try it some day ^^.

Well, as far as improvement I think you have better ideas than me on how to do that. Remember, I'm still kinda an art newb. I think you already said how you'd like to fix the boat abit but here is where I get into what I like about this piece.

1-Texture. You do an AMAZING job at displaying textures! The wet-suit looks very real especially against the contrast of Storm's (thats her name right? ^^;) fur. I also like the shading allot (I ain't good at it). It helps pull out the textures as well. So besides the wet-suit and fur the ocean and boat platform I can almost "feel" as well ^^.

2-Even though this wasn't a very detailed piece (so to speak) I also like how you seem to naturally incorporate certain things into the picture. One bit would be the little bit of rust and flacking paint that you have on the boat. Its little things like that, that I would usually miss and if I did notice them I would have trouble on simply showing those details. I have an overcritical "scientific" mind so I'm always have trouble on seeing what needs to be and what not needs to be shown.

and 3rd-The clouds. Many a person can do a good cloud shot and many a person can't. Yours are very good though and they're just another little bit that I enjoy :D.

Well, I hope this helps you even though I didn't say how you might improve but I will gladly give my thoughts and ideas about a piece any day :bow:. And sorry about all the stuff about my bad art skillz ^^;. Just trying to show how this makes me appreciate art all the more :w00t:!

I find it ironic that I get on so well with still live but not animals. XD Its like an inverse of what most artists I know are like.

Imo the water is excellent, the water closest to the picture is the best. It looks pretty realistic so don't get beat over it. I love the weathering on the boat.

The pose is ideal for the scene...and if you don't mind me saying, I am in LOVE with the water. I think you did incredibly well, especially with the wave feel to it. <3

The fur texture is great too. Looks nice and soft. :D

Also, don't be too hard on yourself about the boat. :) Sure, it would have been a good idea to use a reference, but gee, I think you did damn good without one. :D
