Judging by the patterns of your shading, you seem to not have a very intuitive three dimensional understanding of the forms you construct your figures with. I'd honestly suggest going back to practicing drawing spheres, cylinders and other basic shapes (with a full value range, without outlines; "you have to know the rules before you break them" applies to light and shadow as well). Your pieces are flat in a way that looks rudimentary rather than stylistic.

I know nothing of canine anatomy so I'll abstain from commenting on it.

ohh. they're not shaded.. ; u ; thats just her markings.

I suck at shading so I was just going to do flat colors till I get better haha.
now i kinda want to experiment with lineless art, though.
thanks~

yeahh, when i started drawing my art was heavily influenced by disney and all those sparkledog artist on dA. u_u I just now started trying to grow out of it and started looking at stock photos of dogs and reducing the fluff to hide my errors & such.
still have a long ways to go though lmfao.
perhaps i'll start at like 3$ and then bump it up as i improve.

matter's sig has helpped me a lottt with my humans so far, but they're still too shameful to even try and get a penny prob.

would there be any particular reason for that?
i don't see how stopping would improve much, if anything at all..

Say if you just draw ferals and nothing else.

Its gonna be extremely difficult to learn how to draw humans with correct anatomy/that doesnt look like animu.

If you're really dead set on never ever drawing humans ever in a thousand years, learning to draw humans probably isn't going to help you much. Most traditional books and teachers use the human body as a teaching device, though, so it's a lot more difficult to learn if you specifically only seek things that improve your canine drawings.

But just stopping completely probably isn't going to do anything to help you get any better at them, no. The difference between the human body and canines is big enough that you're probably not going to pick up any bad habits by drawing one badly while you practice the other; you're not simultaneously learning different anatomical standards for the same thing like you would if you were drawing animu and realistically at the same time. I would recommend studying realistic canine anatomy before you try to stylize it, though, just like anything else.

oh.
well when you said stop drawing ferals entirely i thought you meant like, forever. when i'm looking to improve in them and completely avoiding them wouldn't do me much good.

though when i do draw humans and ferals i have phases. like sometimes i focus on drawing only humans and forget about ferals, then i switch it around, or i comfortably draw both.
but i see what you mean now. let my ferals get a bit rusty then start new on more realistic then try settling into the style i'm aiming for.

my only problem with drawing things realistic is that I start reffing to try and get it as correct as i can, but then I get bored with it and go off on my own or try to make it seem more ~exciting~. which doesn't really do my much good.
i'm assuming patience is something i need to learn as well with art.

i think they mostly misunderstood the fact you meant stylized wolves and not all wolves.

like matter doesn't know wolf anatomy probably because she never draws or studies it. completely ignoring it will not help.
