:heart: As usual, your coloring is sweet. I'm very fond of the different effects you used; the painty feathers, the faint haze in the back...It all works out well.

Not to mention the perspective on that right wing adds a whole 'nother dimension. The way it flattens and skews is just...Wow! :)

A little critique to throw out there...Try to keep your poses varied in the future. I browsed through your gallery and I've seen this exact same pose six or seven times, so it wouldn't hurt to try something new or a bit more difficult next time.

Keep it up! :thumbsup:

:) Nothing a little browsing photos couldn't cure.

I've seen much improvement in your art in the past year, so seeing you stagnate a bit in this area brought it to my attention-If you could work on more inventive poses, your art would be like POW-

Perhaps you could take up sculpting and draw from it from time to time? You can get the coolest angles from those. :D

Just takes away from the majesticness of the picture. beautiful wild griffin-like creature--and then boobs. Sometimes mythical creatures shouldn't be replicated. But of course disagreeing with breasts on a completely feral creature just because it's ~~mythical~~ is ttly rude. so's enforcing the reputations furries are nothing but sex fiend fucktards. but, hey.

I don't see how it takes away from anything in the image; Shin did a fantastic rendition of my character. The pose, lighting, coloring, shading, everything. I don't think the addition of breasts sacrifices the quality of the art. If she had huge, bright pink macro nipples or something, I'd have to agree with you. But she doesn't have breasts because "gee I'm a furry and thought it'd be hawt on a quad animal fapfapfap." I love Greek mythology and art and was inspired by the sphinx (and Greek culture in general) when creating these creatures. I can assure you, there was no sexual intent behind it, I just felt it added a more human-like quality to them, as well as some sophistication. And typically, they are clothed, I just don't have any current designs up because I'm a slacker.

Anyway, just thought I'd mention it since you weren't the first to bring it up. I'm sorry they bother you, but like I said, the intent was not to sexualize the species or appeal to fappers. But everyone's entitled to their opinion! Shin has plenty more boobless-animal pictures to enjoy, which I highly recommend you check out if you haven't already. :D

My only real problem with the fact it has breasts is a) It has no real torso, like a human. So it looks just tacked on to a feral body, which is why I feel it's just 'lol sex plz'. and even further to not making sense is b), the chest of such a creature would be very muscular, and so fatty breasts would just have no place there. *shrugs* I come at things very often from a realistic standpoint, so even if it weren't just for the fappers, it'd still be blegh to me.

I'm sorry for being aggressive over this, but the fact is, he's popular. No one seemed to be mentioning it, and even if I said it in a nice way, I know I'll be flamed, anyway.

I'm also aware of the rest of his art, which is why this bothered me so much in the first place. I didn't want to see one of my favorite fantasy artists become just another fapper furry artist. :/

I think my issue is that Shin wasn't paid to draw a character that "appeals to everyone." He/She was paid to draw my character, just as she is. So if you have an issue with anything regarding her anatomy, I feel it's more appropriate that you go to my gallery and leave a comment like that on something that I've drawn featuring this character. Does that make sense? Then I'd be able to talk more with you about this matter under my own deviation. 'Cause like I said, everyone's entitled to their opinion and I'm not forcing anyone to like or approve of the creatures I design. Feedback, whether positive or negative, is always good (unless it's something like "yiff in hell furfag").

In fact, I appreciate you sharing what bothers you about her anatomy, since I haven't been sure what would look "realistic." Or, at least, more anatomically feasible. I just went off of Greek sculptures and artwork, and...not even the Greeks had that "anatomically feasible" part down when it came to their beasts, lol. So getting more opinions and trying out new designs is a-okay by me.

While your initial comment could be read by others as aggresive, I think it's more of you being pessimistic. ^^; You assumed you'd be flamed (by either me or loyal fans to Shin), so you didn't bother to elaborate about what bugged you. Hopefully, I've managed to reassure you in some way that your opinion --albeit not initially helpful-- does matter, at least to me.

If you're at all interested in tossing more ideas my way, you can check out my original "creature concepts" behind these guys that I made years ago: [link] It's super old, but I mention my intention behind the breasts and human torsos in there. I'll be fiddling with the designs a bit more and will incorporate more muscle, as you suggested.

Shin should make a tutorial on how you colooor~ xD And I almost typed your name as "Sen", then I realized that WHUPS! that's not Sen, its Shin! OH, and maybe feets too? ;3; Or bat-type wings? D: I need big pointers with feet and bat-type wings - mine look horribible. But, uh, that's just me talking, so don't do it just for me.
