Elodie by crisisastar15 Elodie by crisisastar15
This is li'l Elodie right here. My little sis made this character not too long ago C: It's her new fursona and Ireally wantesd to draw it~.

It's a bit unusual for me because my sister has some sort of unique style. It approaches Disney alot more than mine does and she gives all her characters some sort of EXTREMELY cute stuffed animal look X3.
I helped my little sister name her :) and she created her! she loved watching me draw her ^^

I gave it a winter theme because it's that time of year folks :dummy:
The snow took alot f time and this was one of the most tedious drawings I've ever done! it took me like 5 hours (not including the breaks I did when I got up to stretch)
NEVER before has my arm ached after a drawing .-. I think My arm is dead, I can barely move it.

Character,Elodie (c) My sister o3o

All right.
I suppose we'll start with the good aspects. The shading and background are both lovely. You really have a thing for colors, don't you? c:
However, you might have to work on anatomy -- especially snouts. To be honest, I can't tell if Elodie is a canine or a cat. If she is a wolf, her snout should be longer, right? It looks very short. Now, I understand it's hard to show a long snout from different perspectives (believe me, I'm still focusing on that with my art), but you might want to look into finding a tutorial or something. Schnozzes are hard.

I'm really not sure what else to say, because this looks great, apart from the facial anatomy. Nice work!
What do you think?

The background to this beautiful picture is so soft and refined! Really makes you feel that winter comfortness (is that even a word? lol) like when the snow finally sticks to the ground and its this fluffy sheet that makes you want to just lay there or run outside and prance around for the heck of it with no jacket on and then go in the house for some warm hot chocolate :iconinuamazingplz:. Nicely done!

Ah makes me wish it would snow...I miss seeing it :cry:. Crazy weather been going on these days...

Amg, now I want to see your sister's pics, because this is ADORBZ.

And how do you draw backgrounds!? I can't draw them to save my life! :icontableflipplz:

They really are <3 I should post some pics of them some time since she doesn't have a DA :meow: .
And lol. I bet youwould if it meant your life XD, But actually. A background like this was very simple. There wasn't much to add except for the stroke for stroke grassy bushes and the tree's style. (I'm not very good at trees).
I also look at alot of pic refs. And one of the biggest ones was a ref to the scene in "Something There" in Beauty and the Beast. It really helped. :aww: and also a few tutorials here on DA could work out as well to help yo uon the journey to background creation :squee:
