This is a painting I want to work on for a calendar project I'm doing. This character is a female werefox, obviously in her foxen form at the moment. This pose is rather boring, and somewhat stiff, but I've got it stuck in my head and I thought I'd make a quick painting of it for the calendar anyway. (For August, it's a nice boring month).
In any case, I need to tell you a little bit about this character. #1
she's very skinny, like she looks like she's starving (Very little insulation there). At the same time she's got some pretty good muscles on her. Don't ask me how that works exactly. Her build is very similar to mine. So I sort of use myself as a guide. Unfortunately I can't see my back and I'm sure not going to ask my roomie to take a pic of me naked. Some extra info: She's a "Raekartan grey fox" which is a species similar to our grey fox from a world I developed for my comic, but she does have some differences. She also is what is called a "Kaetif" not just an anthro, so she has her own evolutionary traits that normal foxes would not have. For example, her nose and ears are larger than what a grey fox should have as far as proportions go. I do this for evolutionary reasons, heat loss and better breathing mostly. She also has a very long tail, which you can kinda see in the picture, but I wanted to make sure I got the core anatomy right before I added in the other stuff.
Other notes: She will be wearing clothes, but I want to make sure the underlying anatomy is right before I add them. She also has humanlike hair. The scene, I want to have her stretching on the beach at "suns set," as her world has two suns. I haven't thought much about the BG other than that, so suggestions would be appreciated.
Overall, I'd like an anatomy check. I've been staring at it so long that it looks right to me, but I want a second opinion. I know the pose is stale, but I'd like to keep it that way. I've also tried flipping it horizontally but that didn't do me much good other than the childish entertainment of watching her "dance" on the screen. :)
So have at it.
