So my style was horrible when I first started to draw on DA, or rather, when I first started to draw period. Originally I took Character design inspiration from cartoons, Animated movies and whatever few comics there were floating around the internets at the time. 
When I arrived on DA, I started looking around for inspiration to add to my drawing style. (which I still do to this day) 
One of these artists was Dashter. He inspired me to stick with the anime/anthro style. Keeping it simple, while being a little complex at the same time.
The biggest and foremost style that inspired me, was Tailsrulz.  
First off, He inspired me to stick with short to medium nose style characters, as it's easier with facial expression. 
Second, If you look at his 2003 pics to where he is now, You'd hardly tell it was the same artist. It's inspiring, it shows how one can grow.
I take so much of his style and adapt it into my own, almost to the point where I feel like I mimic his art sometimes. (though I've never stolen any of it mind you. All of my drawings are hand drawn, and I have a full sketchbook and a half to prove it). Yet I feel like I do have some of my own elements added in for my personal flair. (Not like I know what that is, but whatever)
When I first started drawing, I drew almost a traditional long-nose, with verrrrrrryyyy oddly shaped necks, because I hadn't yet figured out how to mesh the two together perfectly.
Gradually, it changed to where it is now. and I'm pleased.
If Dashter or Tailsrulz happens to stumble on this Journal entry, Thanks to you both for letting me learn from you, through your art.
Snake lineart by Shadowblackwolf5
Snake lineart
So after practicing this one for a looooooonnnnnnnnggggg time,  I drew Snake, from the Metal Gear Solid series. Still have some tech to work on, but overall, I'm happy with how it turned out. I need to work on the perspective a bit more. This and the 3/4 turn of the body were always hard for me to grasp, but, I'll get it if I practice it more often.

So, when I draw, I have the same problems as when I train freerunning. I wanna be good now. As far as artists go, I don't think that I'm the worst one out there, and I feel as if my style is unique in of itself. The problem, I think, Is that I change styles a LOT. I'll alternate between long and medium nose, when I should be focusing on the medium style. (better facial expression) I could do short nose, I suppose, but at that rate, it looks more like a furry anime character. I also tend to be impatient. I don't like leaving a project while in the middle of it, so I tend to waste time and technique on finishing a single project in one sitting, as opposed to taking my time and doing it right...I don't know, maybe I should just stop thinking about it too much.
After all, I'm doing this for fun right?
First sketch dump in 3 years! by Shadowblackwolf5
First sketch dump in 3 years!
Sooooo... yeah. been gone awhile. forgot how to draw, this is me getting back into the basics. I still have a really hard time drawing with a wire frame, and an even harder doing the 3/4 turn of the body. that being said, the gun guy and the girl in the middle were completely spontaneous with only the girl sketch actually using the wire frame. (which also explains why the guy's hand is kinda wonky). It's good to be drawing again, Now, if I can only get back into it. I'm going to try to take at least an hour out of my day to practice.

So I'm officially a fan of Undertale, (Expect some fan art from me in a while) with my top three favorite characters being Sans at number 1, papyrus at number 2, and Toriel taking the third spot. My only complaint with Sans is that you don't truly see how powerful he is unless you take the Genocide route, (seen only through youtube. I couldn't kill off any of those awesome characters). Despite that, I like how the creator gave him this omniscience, and how he is your judge. 
In other news, I've tried to get back into drawing, and realized that a three year hiatus makes you kinda rusty. Gonna take some practice before I get back to form, but Sans is a fairly easy character to draw. The only thing I'm going to have a hard time with is his spiffy coat, (which adds to the awesomess) which I want to try with a black coloring instead of white. 
Gotta run, catch y'all on the flip side

I'll do requests, but I need quite a bit of time. I hardly have any time to draw much anymore, but i'll do what I can.

Can you do my scuba diving wolf from Texas, Richard? If not, that's OK.
