Hey Anon! Sorry I took so long to answer this—I wanted to do something more in-depth over just a ‘ok draw a circle now MAKE IT AWSUM.’ I also tried to recall from other tutorials stuff in them I didn’t feel like they spoke about.

also—I’m very sorry I don’t have more advice to give about ears. I am not completely confident with them yet! Gotta keep practicing.

As always, I am not 100% correct on everything, so feel free to use what you want and ignore what you don’t want!

Here’s some more tutorials on noses and ears that might be helpful, if this one isn’t:

Step-by-step coloring nose tutorial

Another nose tutorial!

Ear tutorial by the same artist. This artist has TONS of other useful tutorials too, btw!

More noses.

I’ve been having some trouble creating interesting poses so I thought I would whip up a reference. 

First Image - X (this website is really helpful, I recommend looking at it if you want to learn more)

Second Image - X

Third Image - X (has some helpful information)

Fourth Image - X

Another Helpful Website - X

Try drawing a simple curved line as your action line and then a draw pose around that line. Practicing this will help you get better at drawing interesting poses.

You can also go to posemaniacs and find a couple poses and figure out where the action line is for yourself as an exercise.

A tutorial by me. Because I can. 

I used Paint Tool Sai, Photoshop, and this square brush set. Yup.

Edit: Oh, and I know there are a ton of spelling errors, sorry! D:

An awing fuck-ton of big cat references.

And here’s a link to a spectacular image that helps distinguish types of big cats. It’s insanely helpful, and you’d be doing yourself a majour disservice if you don’t use it:

Please note that in the first cheetah GIF, the head has been insolated. When running, the head will bob up and down slightly. Not a lot, but just know how the head attaches to the neck and how that moves when the body is oscillating up and down when they run, like in the second GIF.

How to sketch up a city quickly ^^ CLICK HERE FOR FULL SIZE. This is a rough re-creation of this sketch since there was interest in how I did it without pulling my hair off, and I wanted to share it in case people just need to get a rough cityscape in photoshop quick without the hassle and without the help of other programs like google sketchup.
Obviously this looks very rough it was meant to be and also because I made it in a real hurry, so please excuse some of the ridiculous looking buildings and other illogical appearances. to create more precise cityscapes using this method, simply stop using the brush tool and use line tool/polygonal lasso tool—even using the brush tool and holding down shift is fine—instead to create precise, straight lines. The slower you do this process the more accurate your final piece will be, however the premise of this method is that if you want/need to do it fast, you can.
good luck :D

I made a tutorial about mixing colors when painting! It’s really long and rambly and probably repeats itself a lot, but maybe it’ll be helpful to somebody. It’s intended for people who already have a basic understanding of color theory, so I might recommend this tutorial by gawki if you don’t already know the basics.

Aaahh so yeah. I’m nothing amazing at trees, but my friend Huispe has been asking for this for such a long time now, I decided to finally do it.

Hopefully it can be useful for any of you out there <3

(there’s prolly plenty of typos in there too but I am just so tired right now aughhh)

Someone pointed out something very perceptive about how I draw.  Here’s one of my pages of studies I did a little while ago.  It was me trying to figure out the shape language of various styles.  In essence, I was going backwards, reconstructing the basic parts, and then simplifying them.
