Jungles Prey by ToolKitten Jungles Prey by ToolKitten
A Commission! I am working my way slowly through them.

Also, I wanted to post this because, well, its good to show your weaknesses sometimes, and to own up to them. I dont do it a lot on here (that happens more with my peers irl) but I know it can mean a lot to some of you to know it still happens, as odd as it sounds. Sometimes you need to wake people up, to show them that not everybody started out where they are now, and that we all struggle while we learn. Its okay that we do, and its better that we do, and the earlier you can take it in stride, the better it will be for all (but especially us!) :)

I will continue to look to my peers like Ebas and J.Scott for encouragement and stiff honest criticism though, as deviantart isnt the best place for that :)

Drawn and colored by me, Nei Ruffino.

Haha! Well, my only criticism is . . .

Finger off the trigger!!

Yep. Too many people keep their fingers on the triggers, but professionals should know better. The finger goes on the trigger only with the weapon is pointed at something that needs shot. It is a safety precaution.

Of course, I'm saying this to the chap on the left, not the guy who is pointed in at something already. ;)

And also, I'm only pointing this out because your peers aren't likely to offer such criticism. ;)

The real reason I brought it up is because a lot of people neglect this point of safety when handling weapons. So I point it out for their sake, not because it detracts from your art any--which is always gorgeous! :D

Love the pic. When it said Jungle Prey, I was looking for the Predator somewhere behind them.

The work is great Nei, but I have to admit that you are better at the female form than males, but it's not as bad as you may be telling yourself
