But I drew 19 digital goats, and I'd really like to know, for a digital goat, how good the conformation is on them. I won't put all 19 up, just certain ones. Help me critique their conformation, yes, even though they are fake. Please?

LA Lancha - LaMancha doe

Lucy - Oberhasli Doe

Opal - Boer Doe (Dappled/Belted)

Cookie - Nubian Doe

Paint - Oberhasli Buck

Leopard - Boer Buck (Dapple)

I picked my most pretty and best specimens.

Hey, that looks really good & the goats look to have really good conformation. That's amazing, I was wondering if you'd be willing to share how you made them

Very nice!

My only change would be to give the boer breeds horns. Horns on bucks and does are breed standard. All wethers should be dehorned, but not the bucks and does.

Otherwise they all look incredible! Good job!

Those are very nice! :) the only issue in any of them that I see is the last one has slightly weak pasterns, but not horrible. Otherwise, they're perfect IMO! :D

They all look great. I agree the pasterns are kinda weak on a couple, and the Boers need horns. The udder on Cookie looks a little funky, and the rear attatchments on the first doe could be better. I like Lucie and the Boers the best :)

But hey, where's the Nigerians? ;)

I basically take a pic or two of goats I like and look at them and draw the lines, not tracing though, but basing off conformation. I then take a picture of the lines and trace those lines on a Photoshop called GIMP. Then I tweak those lines on Paint (not good a tweaking on GIMP) and save and color in.

I understand about the horns, thanks for the info. I only have them dehorned because I am a mostly Dairy breeder (on the site I have them on) and my Boers are with my Dairy's. I breed them for color only. I like to think like it is real. I own actual dairy goats too, but only two.

He's my favorite little one XD lol. If I could have a real buck that looked like him, I would. Thanks for the critique!

Lol, I'm all alone in goats on the site they are on. MAYBE 3 other people actually have a goat DRAWN. My point, they don't show. And even so, I am mainly a dairy goat breeder. It's really to protect the dairy goat by having the Boers polled (I have them made polled so it seems a little more humane). I love em for their color more than anything.

Cookie looks a little weird? Well that messes me up, all my other Nubians have the same lineart, with the same body. Ahh well, I based the udder off a really pretty doe I knew who made a lot of milk. Lol, I might fix it for the next few I draw.

LA Lancha was a weird one. Since I don't draw the udder by hand usually, it was made with line tools on paint. And I didn't want to have to blend the colors so I drew it I guess to hide that spot. She's the only LaMancha and the only goat standing like that. Lol

Thanks a whole lot! And Lucie, yea, I love Oberhasli's. Idk why, they only come in two colors, but they are just so pretty, I had to add a few. I have Lucie and her sister Bee, who is black, and then the Oberhasli buck. Same with the boers, love those new colors!

I missed her before; I think what she meant is that Cookie's udder attachments are a bit too high in the back, and weak in the front, causing the udder to sag a bit. At least that's what I'm seeing. ;)
