Sometimes I ask my left hand to draw stuff for me. Though clumsy, I often find it’s got all kinds of subconscious visual knowledge stored away that my dominant hand glosses over–especially if I’ve been studying a subject a while. I was really happy with how this freaked out horse came out.
OK, so drawing expressive cat faces is easy when you cartoon ’em up, but difficult when you’re trying to adhere to their natural anatomy–especially those mouths!
But tonight Netflix brought me some nice reference in the form of Thunder and the House of Magic. There’s a nice hand-drawn sensibility to the cat’s body motion (when’s the last time we had a 3D animated cat? Bolt?), but that face, that mouth!! Cute, expressive, natural-looking!
Besides, he looks like my fiancé’s kitty, Pixel, down to the white socks!
