Kitties!





Here are some cat studies for a self-directed project I'm working on. Just a little something to keep me busy when I'm between jobs. These are character studies. I want the style of the cats to be somewhere between real and cartoony. I took the liberty of coloring a couple of them in Photoshop, just for fun, and to make my sketches a little more interesting.

Cute!
Yet, somehow I always find anthropomorphic drawings creepy. If these were animatronic, I'd lose it!

Did you use your cats as reference?

I can see where you're getting a creepy feeling. I love that about drawing cats, their lack of facial expression - I find it hilarious and slightly unnerving.

Didn't use my kitties as ref this time. I was looking at the Eye Witness book on cats (bought a whole bunch at the last Word on the Street - they come in handy.)

That's some fancy digital rendering. Especially the orange cat with all that hair.

It's just simple photoshop coloring playing with the brush sensitivity. I learnt it from Tom Richmond's blog http://www.tomrichmond.com/blog/?cat=8
