This is my half of a sketch trade with =FireMaster13. I've always loved her dragaroo (dragon/kangaroo) character, Domino, so I was super stoked when I saw she wanted to do a sketch trade with me. :D I've also wanted to draw a kangaroo for a while, so double awesome! It was fun to play around with the kangarooish leg anatomy.

The thick border is sort of inspired by [link] by ~neondragon. I'm not sure if I'll use a thick border like this on my sketches in the future, but it was a nice change from my normal plain texture BGs.

Hope you like it!

Good line art. The pencil work representing the fur and muscle tone is something I especially like here. The background is simple and texturized to fit the work very well.

Thank you very much! I might take some more sketch trades after I finish off my to do list (I really want to practice making clean sketches).

Wow man, I really admire the fact that you have strong anatomy xD <3 A lot of people on here have their own styles, and as much as I love that, everything kinda has the same shape in most cases, but yours definitely stand out by themselves and are obvious as to what they are. Kudo to that! :'D Anyway, on more specific terms, I really like this sketch! Love the muscle tones and your hands especially! Me and hands are sworn enemies. xD

Oh wow, thank you for such a detailed comment! I'm flattered that you like the anatomy so much.

And yeah, hands can be a pain sometimes but that's why I always use mine for reference. cx

Aww, You're welcome! :'D

I try, but I can't stay put for too long. That, and holding your hand in the same position on purpose starts to hurt after a while |D
