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!

Great job!  The form is really slender and functional for an aquatic being.  Awesome!
