Exclamation Hello

Hey Everyone its Rawrie-Dots/Loverdots12 aha., How is everyone? I'm great just looking for some help!!

So I'm trying to Improve My art with Lions/lioness.
I just need a few tips because i find myself doing the same boring poses because to be honest i don't know how to get out of that habit... And no IDEA on what poses to do and don't really know how, I've tried looking online but just didn't really "excite" me.
So maybe if you guys can check out my gallery on DA http://loverdots12.deviantart.com/ and maybe tell me where i can improve , and Please give me critique me I really want to improve my art...
I've uploaded alot of my characters in my own lineart so your gonna have to go back a page or two. but please give me some ideas and tips thanks guys

I'm going to move this to the 'Constructive Criticism' part of the 'In the Spotlight' forum c: Emotional Creativity more advice on personal situations or for moral support when life's got you down.

As far as your question, the best advice I can give you is to copy from pictures of real animals. The poses aren't always exciting, but once you familiarize yourself with the anatomy, you can start doing some really interesting action poses. Try doing wacky things like 'walking a tightrope on their front paws only' c:

Hey, the drive to improve is half the battle! The other half is practice, practice, practice. Even when you are bored out of your mind with what you are drawing and don't feel you are improving, keep practicing anyway. Eventually your knowledge of anatomy and form will grow and elements like perspective, depth, color theory, etc will start appearing in your art because you aren't having to work so hard on anatomy.

From what I can see you have the technical skill to create pictures just not the anatomical knowledge to draw from in your head. I highly recommend just filling a sketchbook with anatomical practice--not just with different lion poses, but even skeletal and muscular structures. It's much easier to draw difficult poses if you know what is going on underneath the skin and fur.

Don't stop drawing or give up! That is the key.
