Cat Faces [Tutorial] by TigerMoonCat Cat Faces [Tutorial] by TigerMoonCat
So, I promised a tutorial and here it is :D

-/-/-

Running over some basic stuff that I've learnt since my last tutorial, and dabbling in manga-ish style and semi-realism.

Also chibi eyes.

-/-/-

i hope you can understand my doodles

i have nothing to babble about here because i did it in my previous deviation. :/

-/-/-

There is an easier, step-by-step tutorial of how to draw a cat face HERE.

where is the best place to start when you draw the whole cat?

i'd say the head, so draw a circle for the head, then the torso and the hips, add the legs and see if that works out, then move onto detail.

don't do detail until the whole cat looks Ok-ish because you will draw a magnificent head and then the body will be small and weird and it will be painful

No offense or anything, like.. I like the drawing and how you explain things.. But I think you need more of a tutorial on how to draw the whole thing, step-by-step. c;

ahh yes D: 

this is more like a reference guide, mostly 

were you thinking the cat face in general or specific features like the eyes and mouth?
(sorry im trying to get a better idea because i really do want to make good, helpful tutorials for people)

Did you make that paper cat head? If you did , could you tell me how to do it? Or link me to a tutorial? It'd be awesome for shado reference *O*
Also, good tutorial, specially the nose part! I never know how o do the nose haha

I made it but it was from a book on making cats from paper. It's a Russian one called "Cats from Paper" by Irina Zhukova
i don't think it's up for sale in english-speaking countries, but you can order it here - www.setbook.org/books/410673.h…
i'm afraid i cant post the actual construction information since that would be infringing copyright laws :icononionwoeplz:
 
you could also make something like this (www.deviantart.com/art/Quadsui… and that'll work :D

i'd be happy to draw up some refs for you though :meow:

oh, well, I can't really understand russian, but I'd buy this book! It looks really intresting and there is various other felines *-* I understand, I'll try to find some other book that are alike this one in english ^^

hmm Yeah, I could do something like that :D It's maybe even better for reference, the problem is actually making it, which would be a lot of work o.o haha

Thank you, but I don't think there is need now ^^ I'll try to practice in this way (the one in the tutorial), let's see if I can get better :D
