I was thinking it would be good to dedicate a thread to discussing and sharing our art and drawing techniques with other's hopefully finding way's to improve our art.

(one example I was really never satisfied with this Evzen pic I drew, this was my third attept at drawing Evzen and I still couldn't get it right. The head as someone pointed out was to small and I was having a lot of trouble drawing the legs, at the time I didn't quite get the hang of hot to draw Dave's unique dreamkeeper legs and feet, I was thinking of taking this Evzen pic down and doing a new one from scratch)

sounds like a good idea since some users are artists too. :D

the feet aren't easy including with how Dave does it is very well done, but a lot of practice helps. there are many digigrade feet tutorial's. :D

one thing I have a lot of trouble replicating as well is Dave's Dreamkeeper eyes. I'm more akin to drawing anime-ish eyes because they just feel easier to me. But for Dreamkeepers the pupils are so much smaller its hard for me to draw the right angle the eye is facing, plus the eyes tend to have different shapes along the face.
