Anthro Challenge #104 | Kite by AgentWhiteHawk Anthro Challenge #104 | Kite by AgentWhiteHawk

This is my first time doing AC, I hope I did this right. The color rules were a bit confusing.

Okay so I read the newest Anthro Challenge and got an interesting image in my head. 

Then theme was a kite, so I have a wolf using a flying squirrel as a kite, and then the squirrel also has a real kite. Weird, and probably not possible but I thought it was funny.

It was interesting drawing using a color limitations. I usually have like, 100+ colors in most of my works, so using five is fare. I didn't know if shading/light filters are allowed. I didn't see anything in the rules that said not to, so I just used the colors we're supposed to use with opacity. 


Enjoy my fail :3

Wow! This looks like quite a challenge :D The wolf has a pretty sturdy pose but your still practicing alot of anatomy, but try adding some more movement and make the arm go farther back to indicate that hes running (you know what i mean?)
 The hat is a nice touch but the back of it kinds looks a little out of proportion to front, Try drawing the whole hat, draw the ears over it, and then erase the lines of the hat.
I think the eye should be moved up a little higher. The way you tied the string around his hand was pretty unique, although his thumb looks a little weird. The thumb should a more scrunched up in a fist.
The squirrel looks nice,  but the right back leg looks a bit messy. Wasn't sure what the orange markings on the left front paw were for. Was it shading?
Also its kinda hard to see where the string attached to the squirrel was. it led up to it's left arm and then just disappeared fading out. I think the squirrel snout should be more narrower.
It's not really the anatomy of a sugar glider XD but for a regular squirrel it looks good.
You made a lovely background. It's alot more simple then usual, and its nice ^^ It must've been hard only using those five colors, but you did make a pretty cool picture :3

Thanks :3 This was a pretty quick piece. About 2 hours as apposed to about 8-12 because I had to get to some other things. But I was in a drawing mood so I decided to try some things out :3

I botched some of the anatomy in some paces, and also left out a few things. (I have resizing the wolf's arms so I totally forgot to line the string around the squirrel's paw. Since this is for a contest I'll probably go back in and make the necessary correction.) Flying squirrel anatomy is also really tough. Mostly because there isn't much reference out there of them when they're not "flying." Google images was a wasteland for that, so I pretty much took normal squirrel anatomy and mixed it with a couple reference photos and got this. The back legs were heartache to draw. They look so awkward when squirrels are flying so I pretty much just drew them to be cartoony. And the markings on the paws are supposed to be paw pads (I wanted to make the squirrel somewhat anthro-ish so I did them the way that I usually do paw pads on wolf hands).

Thanks for the advice though. Half of these things I didn't noticed when I was working on this. I was paying more attention to the layout and making sure the coloration was right.
