Blubbering: Unattractive, loud crying. Characterized by mutters, truncated, erratic breathing, clinched facial expressions and hunched posture.
Hyperventilate-Crying: Forceful crying causing heavy breathing, resulting in the inability to speak or produce sounds even resembling words.
Scream-Crying: Violent crying accompanied with bouts of yelling or sometimes shrieking. May also include slapping, punching or other physical expressions of distress.
Silent Tears: Soft, inaudible crying that does not draw attention; May manifest only in a single tear rolling down one’s cheek.
Sobbing: Heavy crying with a large volume tears flowing steadily; Generally audible but not inappropriately loud.
Sniveling: Audible, but soft crying, also prone to muttering and erratic breathing; May also show signs of drool or mucus.
Weeping: A gentler version of sobbing; Involves soft, steady stream of tears with some times lightly audible signs of distress.
Whimpering: Soft crying usually including few or no tears at all; Often incorporates muttering and/or high-pitched sighs.

could i maybe get some critique on one of my dragonic characters?
just to tell you i have an a pretty toony style and i like it but i’d also like to get some better anatomy
if this is submitted twice then i’m sorry for doing so
aAH I’M SORRY THIS TOOK SO LONG HMM
SO MANY DISTRACTIONS AND SCHOOL AND SUCH AHA
the horn is a bit close to the eye, so I shifted it back on the skull. I’d suggest smoothing out the line above the fang a bit, to give the impression that it’s under the lip (unless you don’t want it to be under the lip, or you just don’t want to- it’s not a big deal with this style). I’d say to either get rid of the line of the snout going into the skull (in that head position, it’s unneeded), or shift it over, as I’ve done in the redline, so that it’s about at the corner of the farther eye. the neck looks like that of a more bipedal creature, with the spine connecting directly under the skull, so I pushed the back line of the neck out so that it looks like a spine that connects more at the back, but is simply bending outward (unless you were going for a neck that connects directly under the skull, which is fine, but it looks p weird on quads)
the shoulders look like they’re missing shoulderblades, so I added them in, and pushed the points of those shoulderblades closer together on the front of the chest (you don’t necessarily need added definition of a shoulderblade, especially with your style, but just make sure the points of the shoulders end more near the front of the chest, and the legs follow more of an angle forwards into the chest, rather than connecting straight up into the spine). the elbows also looked to be at different heights, making the arms look to be different sizes, so I changed that. the hind legs were too long, considering their height in a sitting position, so I reduced their size. also, hind legs tend to push forward in this position, so I tried to push the legs in that direction.
the chest stretches down too far, so I pulled the line back and under the body, to look more like the chest is angling back into the curved-spine sitting position of the dragon
I’d suggest dropping the wings down so they’re more on the back than above the front limbs, but it’s not a bid deal. remember that the wings are arms, so the different sections of the arm should be defined as arms would be (I say this cus’ as you have it, the line of the lower arm of the bat wing is so low below the wrist, it doesn’t even look like it’s connecting). same goes for the bird wing- make sure you place the feathers in a way that indicates an arm, with main lines of feathers following along the curve of the arm and “hand”, rather than main feather lines in straight rows with no sort of arrangement
make sure the lines of the tail curve in a way to indicate that they are connecting back behind the dragon into the hip area
backing up from anatomy, I’d suggest working on your line weight (or changing your brush settings), as the lines change size a lot. this wouldn’t be a bad thing at all, if the differing weights had direction, but it just seems like the lines don’t have any rhyme or reason behind where they change size, so different, awkward parts are emphasized by thicker lines and such
I hope this helps! ovo
this is perfect, thank you!
Anonymous asked you:
