The BackYard -

Moderators always have the final say.

Moderator(s): Shoyru, demonred21


The characteristics of this room are explained in the FAQ and in the rules.
Be sure you know what's allowed and what is not before you begin to draw! :)

[!] When drawing 'anthros', please draw more then the head and shoulders. When you only draw from the neck up, it doesn't always come across as an anthropomorphic creature.
[!] Pictures that appear to be humans with no more animalistic characteristics than "ears and a tail" will be deleted. Anthropomorphic refers to a non-human with human characteristics rather than a human with non-human characteristics.
[!] Hybrids are also not allowed -please read the FAQ for this room-

Thank you for reading the rules and have fun drawing :B

I did this rather hurriedly, obviously, so I am not sure it's up to the two star standard. :P

EDIT: Loosely inspired by a picture of Mata Hari which I can't seem to find online >/

Nice work you did a good job.

tish @ 2010-07-16 05:35:39     
Finally found the time to say - I like this.
Like candlelights, soft colors, wispy smoke - all.

splatter-wolf @ 2010-11-05 22:15:01     
wow, nice work. I love the outfit, and the ears.

Bunnylace @ 2010-11-26 04:12:43     
Nice, I like the muzzle form

Tenaciousdiva @ 2011-05-15 19:48:13     
This is so pretty! The linework and colors are gentle and soft, whle the lighting is warm. Good job!

UglyCoyoteNG @ 2012-11-21 21:00:31     
The soft lighitng and beatiful arms and hips are gorgeous in this image!

TheSilverWolf @ 2015-03-11 17:58:24

mewchild @ 2010-05-27 19:24:19
This is my new baby. ;3;
He's of a specie I created last night. xD And they're adoptable~ Want your own? Find me on FA 8D (aelyrin)

Maaan, it's been a long time since I've been here. o3o In fact, I'm pretty sure that the last time I was in the backyard was when I was maybe 15? xD And it got deleted. It's been a long time since I've even been around OC at all, though.

There's no excuse for the background, I'm sorry. ;A; I fail at those and I just wanted to draw Aisu. But then I remembered that if there's no background at all, it would get deleted. orz
Oh well. I'm going to post it (probably without background) at FA anyways. ~w~;;

This was a trial to see if I can still draw with a mouse. 8D

TisForTwee @ 2010-05-27 21:13:57     
This is adorable! I love the patterns on her fur, and the colors. Very nice choice of colors! They look like ice cream: vanilla, chocolate, strawberry, and mint. Yum!

I feel like the background doesn't give her justice though :( I'm no good at backgrounds either, that's why I choose references with little background involved. That being said, its a lot of fun to look for pictures for backgrounds to match your foreground and somehow tie them in. Its good practice too! You could totally find a picture suitable to mimic and play around with this picture.

lol at above comment. It's a heeeeeee
xD I remember you mew ^^ But me and this kaki go way back in the day, a long heist of me not ever really drawing and everyone else giving me eye candy >3

I really love the clean feel of the colors and lines. It's all very well done, and the chosen colors come well together ^^ Good specie.

SammiSolstice @ 2011-06-30 23:29:09

Ah, the Australian summer. Nothing for it but to hang out under what little shade you might find until the sun goes down.

jackalpup @ 2010-01-24 14:27:36

Must say, haven't seen too many koala furries around. So here's one. ^^

NekoBrimm @ 2009-12-07 07:38:03     
Nice pastel-ly colors in the background and on the tree(s). I love the solids work you have on the koala. <3

tish @ 2009-12-07 09:16:10     
Ohh great fur texture!
(well, after wearing fur-related shock out, I see every other aspect awesome too :)

TisForTwee @ 2009-12-18 22:29:24     
So cute! I'm loving the mixture of solids and pastel almost solid watercolors in the background. Totally digging it. =)

Great job :)

Skeeter @ 2010-06-29 21:07:12     
Good job on the fur and the out of focus lights in the background.

NekoBrimm @ 2009-05-13 13:06:54
And done. Even kittens grow up to be cats. (obvious~) This is an anthro version of my boy-cat Moe and the changes in pattern he went thru as he reached adulthood as well as the strange heart shaped marking on his upper back. XD;;;; Seriously!

If the background doesn't work with the image, let me know and I'll fix it. I couldn't come up with anything else that'd work so what you see is what I ended up with. <<;;;;;

HateFarron @ 2009-05-16 19:28:55     
I LOVE the way the fur looks! Also this character has an epically cool design <3

The fur! *_* very nice!!

Aminako @ 2010-09-26 13:21:24     
Beautiful job with the tone and the fur! I love the background as well. Nice work! ^-^

Bunnylace @ 2010-11-26 04:14:05     
That outfit is neat, I like when coats have unnecessary buckles, makes an outfit so much more novel. I also like the color texture on his fur

UglyCoyoteNG @ 2012-11-21 20:59:22     
I love the texture on this image, and the fur!

I love the thick lineart and the shading on this. It would make a nice binder/notebook cover! :)

tish @ 2009-01-13 06:31:27

DinchtGirlie @ 2009-01-22 16:13:28

To make it even better, you could smooth out the coloring on his fur

Dreya @ 2009-01-10 13:28:14     
I wanted to comment on this, too! I generally don't like furries, but this one is just so pretty she looks natural! I love the shading on the blouse, the grass, and the water. It's so well done.

demonred21 @ 2009-01-13 19:08:07     
aww thanks soo much everyone~ ♥

Jade-Panda @ 2009-02-24 21:18:45

Hexonymous @ 2009-05-13 13:18:05     
The cute face is very doe-like. I love that most, and possibly the shading on the shirt.

Nemuri @ 2009-06-01 23:54:04 too cute!

Zeeq @ 2009-07-18 20:56:02     
Hm.. I really like the texture and the colors together. Her face and hair are very nice. Cute and well colored/shaded.

Nice job on th hair and the ear tufts, also the water in the background.

Aminako @ 2010-09-26 13:25:58     
Beautiful paintwork. It's hard to believe this was done in oekaki. Really very beautiful.

candiipup @ 2011-08-11 19:01:07     
Whoa whaaat, this is crazy for something like oekaki. Very awesome :D I'm digging the ears, they're adorable.

Iris-sempi @ 2012-08-10 19:42:29     
Wow This is absolutely fabulous. Im loving the fabric wrinkles and the shading, and how smooth this all looks. Really beautiful.

HecticHeathen @ 2008-08-28 01:50:26
"Kutséena" is Comanche for coyote. I've been wanting to draw a coyote chick all day.

This doubles as a little tribute to my family heritage. Nothing blatantly "Indian" though, just something laid back and set in the wide open FLATNESS that is southwestern Oklahoma.

emberinflames @ 2008-12-22 13:07:14     

Dire Fiction @ 2009-01-27 17:19:18     
I luffs this! Anthros are like my favorite thing to draw! Anyway, I like the style of this. It's simple yet very effective!

....*dies* creating semi-fur is NOT my strong point... I pray my sketchy coloring is up to par!! if not... i shall fix... (while crying)

On another note, will anyone take him home? haha

TwilightButterflies @ 2008-11-15 16:08:59     
lol. he's cute I'll keep him XD

Mrazzier @ 2009-07-23 13:02:05     
Loving the fur over skin effect! :D Awwww I'll take him homeeeee :D <3
