Feline - 2020-03-29

Done as part of a 30 minute class.

My current goal is: Improve at correctly capturing the overall proportions of animals


You're doing really well with the flow here, which is super important, especially with felines. The top drawings are really great at showing what I mean, in the top left, that single stroke tail shows confidence and life, on the right, that arching back does the same! However, do not be afraid to make mistakes, with all the parts where you second-guessed yourself and kind of went over the parts a few times, it loses all that flow you had. If I were you, I'd use some kind of sharpie, felt pen or brush pen and do this same exercise again, really concentrating on which lines make up the cat (which you're already doing) and just being confident in your ability, trying to do one line in one stroke. if it doesn't work, that's okay! don't feel the need to fix or go over anything, it's all practise. The one on the second row at the left is fantastic, keep finding the points of movement and interest in each pose (by that I mean, the parts of the pose that are necessary to translate in order for the drawing to register as a cat, etc).
