Mercenary by Heyriel Mercenary by Heyriel
:iconcommentplz:

What can I say, I love 'dem hawt animal-ppl and men with long hair. :evillaugh:

Drew this at school in an actual Sketchbook for once (oh wonder) and he's turned out a bit slouchy I'm afraid. But whatevs, miles better than any of the previous ref-less humanoids, so I'm gonna count it as a success! :dummy: I got ideas for other professions/species to illustrate; It'd be a series of sorts, but in the end it's unlikely any of them will get done. Maybe the thumbnails will be uploaded with the next sketchdump? Hm. Y u do this to me life?! Aaaaand I need to get over my fear of shading drawings like this traditionally. I always think I'll fuck up the textures and ruin the paper by erasing too often. FFFFF- D:

Anyway, I hope you guys like it -comments are always appreciated! :la:

No refs used, Skyrim ruined my life

Great work :) Was going to ask, judging by the amount, and quality of anthro work, do you have an FA?

Firstly: Thank you so much for all the lovely comments! They means a lot to me and it makes me very happy to hear that you enjoy the works :love:
And to answer the question: Sadly no. I thought about it but since I don't know anybody over there...would you recommend it? c:

By one side, is a great community, with great artists. And more focused than DA.

In the other hand, I'm sure that you know what's the main difference between DA and FA, acceptable-upload wise...

He looks grumpy. xD
But, that anatomy! :dummy:
Also, all the little details to look at on his outfit. And the way the hair falls. :3

Looks good!! :la: You are definitely getting better at this, and no ref used besides. You should experiment MOAR, try shading traditionally!! :) The Khor demands it. [link] Love that web site.

Long manly hair FTW- until a little while ago, I had not realized that I had rather wavy hair, which was why it would not be combed flat. I decided this is actually better than what I had had in mind before, and that I shall not be content to have it cut so short anymore (it takes at least 2-3 inches to form a curl/wave). Just because most men cut their hair short does not mean I cannot grow mine a little longer. Though it seems to puff up more than just go straight down.

lol Yes, I really should -or at least; Upload the stuff that I do shade xD
And yesss, that Site is just so awesome 8D

Mmmmh, men with long hair are always a good thing! 8D -or very, very short (the other 'extreme'); I think I'm speaking for most women when I say that those 0-8-15 medium short hair+gelled-up at-the-front hairstyles you see most look just really...boring and dumb. :lol:
