Vulponero ~On the Beach at Sunrise ~ by Guardian-Beast Vulponero ~On the Beach at Sunrise ~ by Guardian-Beast
After being severely ill for nearly two months, I decided to try to revive myself by participating in this contest: [link]

This was surprisingly fun to do... there is just something about human anatomy, particularly musculature, that I find fascinating to draw. ^.^; That, and I can just spend hours playing with light and color. The fox is primarily white and grey, if you could not tell, with how color happy I was.

I had not intended to do a full background originally either, but as I dropped blotches of color, one slowly decided to emerge from the canvas. Hopefully, this marks the end of the major art block I've been suffering from.

Any way, Vulponero is the mascot for: :iconanthro-muscle: Anthro-Muscle
and is owned by: :iconfuriousfox: FuriousFox
Happy Birthday to you!

This image was drawn by me, Guardian Beast.

Pfff how to write critique about something this good!
The coloring is very very well done! The background is fantastic.

But there a some little things:
The body proportions. They are a little bit off. His chest and arms are too big. The arms are even bigger than his legs! Because the chest is too big, his taille looks too small/thin.
Last thing I want to day is that the muscles of the forearms are also a little big, compared to the rest of the arms.

Well that's all I have to say. I hardly criticize anyone, but your art so good, if you care for the little points I recommend, your art will become even better!

Keep up the good work, you'll see, it will even get better!

What do you think?

so you were the one to have made this piece. you did such a perfect job on the muscles and proportion although you could have widen the stomach area and ribe area to. also you captured the sunset and highlights to go with the piece so professionally. omg and the waves are to die for along with clouds and sky.
you did a good job really good job.

now THIS comes unexpectedly, I am totally speechless! :love:

I am sheer amazed at how this piece came out, I am usually not too much a fan of digital art (the good old fashioned artist I am XD), but this sure is a wonderful piece of art! =D

The colors are beautifully choosen, the background is simple but very fitting to the overall warm and calm harmony of the pic.

I also really love this wonderfully drawn face and head, it feels really realistic, I truly feel that expression, not every pic can do that to me, that's plain awesome! <3

The anatomy overall is really well done, a few little minor mistakes on a few muscle groups are visible for a muscle-nerd like I am, but dont care about it, even I still do my mistakes, everyone does, otherwise we all just could go and do photos of muscle men, right? XD

Overall it is stunning, very beautiful, really sexy (yes I really mean it!) and an artwork I could stare at for many hours <3

Just wonderful, thank you really much, this pic definetly has good chances to reach the top five ;)

I love how you add the effect of the smooth wind

Wow...just, wow. I have no words for how beautiful and how awesome this looks! The anatomy is perfect, and the pose is quite grand! :w00t: Also the use of colors for the background and such; as well as the shading, blended in quite nicely! And the expression on Vulperno's face is to die for! :squee: I have found yet another favorite for this contest! Best of luck goes to you!
