    chaoticArbiter an actual shiny eevee (destroyer of worlds)

    I have no idea where else to ask this
    does anyone have any suggestions/ideas/references for like...a pose that is supposed to come across as both panicked/terrified and a little bit defensive
    like. deathly afraid of what is in front of them but also self-preservation instincts dictate 'try to protect yourself'
    I'm trying to draw a thing and....struggling
    and I can't. find pose references for the thing by Googling, I have tried and failed
    and since I'm blocking out most of the face in this
    I need to communicate a lot with the pose itself
    rather than expression
    and I just. I can't picture things in my head for shit, I do not possess a full-body mirror or tiny wooden figure to pose with, and I can't really work with posing software. I have tried. I just....it's hard when I have an IDEA of what the thing looks like, and this, I don't even know what it'd look like at all. help pls

    chthonicfatigue Bitten by a radioactive trickster god

    I would say... Body curved away from threat, knees bent, arms bent, and held away from body in front of face, in fists if unarmed and holding a weapon double handed if armed. Not sure that's helpful, but it's what I immediately thought of as a scared-slash-defensive posture.

    Has anyone here done "character adoptions" before, and how do you get started? Do you have to have a big portfolio of other art first? I'm not great at drawing but am good at character concepts and I wondered if maybe I could try doing that.

    This advice is kind of furry focused but maybe it will be of help. I have not done it personally but follow and have bought from folks who do.

    You might want to look into bases. I certainly know a lot of furry artists do bases that you are allowed to then sell adoptables from. You do not need a starting gallery and audiance but it helps. Lots of folks on FA upload frequent reminders with links back to the original post and then deleting the reuploads after a day or so.

    I have personally clicked on adopts I have seen on the front-page for the second or so they are there but it is not guaranteed that anyone will notice you.

    There are also Twitter accounts buyfurryart, adoptafur, furryadopt and furpromo who will retweet you if you @ them

    Advertising the thread I just made here: Inktober/Drawtober/Artober/etc.! No pressure, no hassle, just a place to showcase your artistic endeavors in this, the most spooky of months (if you want to).

    Planning on offering adoptables for sale on dA, and I'd like some feedback on my starting-point base. I think he's a cutie but are there any obvious bits that need changing?
