Reworking it until it's right is honestly the most time consuming, in my opinion... -m-'

But thanks for the tips! I'm definitely going to keep them in mind!

Favebombing because many of your tutorials are what I learned from back in middle-school before I had an account, and I definitely want to have them in the collection. :D
TheCreationist Featured By Owner Dec 20, 2014  Student Digital Artist
I want to use a version of this to show the middle schoolers I'm teaching art to.  Is there possibly a version without "bastard" and "crappy" in it.   ...hmm Might be able to get away with crappy.  Art teachers live on the edge. :P

MinaMinaSan Featured By Owner May 14, 2014  Professional General Artist
Cool! i really love your style, and this tutorials help me to much! =D

Ah... i don't want to bother you but... the man with the giant chinchilla have a critical injury, maybe a dislocated elbows or the rupture of ligaments O-O (I cannot position my arms like this, neither with a huge weight on theme. Sorry!!!!! ;w;)
shingworks Featured By Owner May 14, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
Lol, yes you are right, that is an impossible pose... a more natural one would be for your arms to be extended more behind you in a straight line. But then the chinchilla couldn't sit upright as easily, so maybe breaking your arms might be worth it to make the chinchilla happy XD
MinaMinaSan Featured By Owner May 14, 2014  Professional General Artist
Maybe if te chinchilla had some back legs or something XD, like this:…

Welll she... tried ;w;
(Sorry for the quick scrap i was working when i did that XD So she have some bad injurys... or deformities too XD)
