Dolphin Anthro by RigelStar Dolphin Anthro by RigelStar
Decided I would post this before I have depress myself doing an entirely new one for a class project. Apparently my anatomy is wrong and I'm not working with the markers right and I got a tutorial on inking even though what I was "taught" was what I'd been doing for years. D:<

ANYWAY. The scanner TOTALLY washed this out. Its body is MUCH more reflective and rich in texture in real life. Sadness. Bad scanner. ):

Ohwellz. It's not everyday you see an anthro dolphin. Woot.

Done in Prismacolour Markers. MY FIRST ATTEMPT EVAR. XDDD

I found this on the Society of Vertebrate paleontology FB page! Even if the anatomy is a bit off, which I can barely notice, this is still an awesome anthro. I like drawing anthros, myself, and accurate anatomy is always an issue.

The only things that I can see that are slightly off are the shapes of the dorsal fin and tail flukes and the placement of the legs in relation to the dorsal fin. Then again, it also depends what species of dolphin you were going for. Looks like a bottlenose? Also, the lower jaw should be a bit longer than the top. Regardless, this is still a wonderful drawing and I love the pose.

I hate how scanners wash out shading! I have that issue, too!

this is amazing~ i dont know. i never really concidered dolphins for an anthro, simply due to their lack of legs and arms...but you did it wonderfully! fantastic job!

Your idea for a dolphin anthro is awesome! I am glad to see anthro that is not dog, wolf, or cat related. Good job on your drawing and thanks for sharing.

dude this is your art. If you think its right then its right and no one can tell you anything different. We should use art to express ourselves not to please people. If you like it then dont listen to a damn thing anyone has to tell you. In my opinion, this is the first, and most brilliant, dolphin anthro i have ever seen. :3 <3

Keep doin what you're doin, man. Cause this is amazing. :3 <3
