I Draw Animals Stamp by AmethystKirby I Draw Animals Stamp by AmethystKirby
"I draw animals, because I can't f*ckin' draw humans. Trust me on this one."


Still animal-related, but not quite bashing them XD

Not too much to say about this one. I draw animals and anthros because I love them, but also because of this one simple fact; humans and I don't go hand-in-hand in the drawing department. Infact, I weaseled my way out of drawing humans in Media Studies for two years! In my latest project involving a story called The Cat and Venus, I drew the male human with his back turned to us and the female human in mid-transformation to a cat, so she was basically anthro.

And I can't even begin to describe the ridiculous amount of trouble that I had during our nude modeling class where we were supposed to draw our human model for four hours straight. I got very little practice drawing anything other than her basic body shapes and gestures before I would begin to break down having panic attacks and claustrophobia to the point of I couldn't even stay in the college building for more than half an hour before I had to leave while losing my mind and hyperventilating. Thank god I already had the credits for that class, because I couldn't even finish half of it last year.

So, yeah, a very ridiculous and hard time trying to learn to draw them properly, so now I can only rely on anime-esque faces when trying. I'm trying to tell myself,"Humans are just animals too, if I can learn how to draw very basic wolves, then I can learn how to draw a hairless monkey."

Feel free to use anytime!

I can draw humans, but my human style is way back from being considered 'good'. With my animal style, I think I might be working there or getting worse. Anyways, back to the stamp

im using, because this is relatable as

You're not alone. I prefer animals and anthros over humans when it comes to drawing as well. Mostly because I feel like I suck at drawing humans too, especially a caricature of myself.

Hands can be easy to draw if you try finding your own unique way of drawing them. Or, they can be the same as everybody else. Paws, on the other hand, are nearly impossible to draw for me.

People say that a lot. Humans and animals have a lot of anatomical similarities, so I don't see the problem. I think it's more of a case of not being interested in humans.
