More shading practice

I really love drawing.  I'm not very good at it but it really makes me feel alive.  I get a bit frustrated sometimes since improvements happen very very very slowly.  I was never able to take any art/drawing classes in high school or college.  My parents expected me to be perfect and get a scholarship since they said I was "gifted."  In turn, I avoided classes that posed a risk to my GPA, e.g. Art, auto mechanics, wood shop, creative writing (writing was a huge weakness of mine back then), etc.  Lots of things I wanted to do for pleasure or for practical knowledge I just had to skip over.  I managed to finish high school with a 4.0 but I really regret not just saying fuck it and doing what I wanted to.  In college the engineering grad programs I was looking at had pretty high GPA requirements and I had no room for any type of elective credits.  By the time I changed majors and decided not to go to grad school I got stuck taking all required classes until I graduated.  If I could do it all over again I'd make a much larger effort to make drawing/painting a much larger part of my life.

The model for this drawing was from a picture at
He's been around for years and if you have a thing for women in fur, you are probably aware of his site.

Also, the last few drawings I have done were using vector clip art for the eyes and mouth.  I drew these ones by hand and I think they're a huge step up from my earlier drawings.  I still suck at mouths and noses though :P
(I was going to draw a sub in the cage but I think it would have probably turned out poorly no matter how much time I spent on it).


  1. Nice one, Fur. I especially like the eyes and what you did with her glasses. Good caption as well, and you really don't need a figure in the cage. The implication is what you were after, and that's just fine.
