anonymous asked:

perhaps a tutorial about front legs?

yea sure !

i’ve already done a tutorial on back legs, so i guess this will be like the other half to it haha

so ! while a cat’s haunches are a trapezoid, a cats shoulders are like a very skinny and squished half circle. this shape is actually a simplified version of the scapula + humerus bones. it extends from the tip of the shoulder down to the elbow

some things to note about cats is that they have FLAT chests. their chests will not protrude like a dogs. yes, sometimes their fluff and fur may make it look like they have extended chests, but in reality it’s flat

the rest of the leg is fairly simple, it’s just the shoulders i notice a lot of people have problems with. so let’s draw a cat then yea?

i started with the head first, followed by the chest. you can see i used a rounded rhombus for that. starting with the chest + head can help your character feel more stable and proportional and help give weight to the character. then i threw in the shoulders and the rest.

legs are fairly simple, they will get smaller slightly towards the feet. you can make them more muscular or skinny depending on the character you want. 

HERE IS AN EASY TRICK FOR PROPORTIONS. A cat’s elbows WILL ALMOST ALWAYS align with their stomach. The beginning of the leg will align with the end of the chest. (obviously if you’re drawing super longhaired cats thats different but)

What I need to survive is not Gale’s fire, kindled with rage and hatred. I have plenty of fire myself. What I need is the dandelion in the spring. The bright yellow that means rebirth instead of destruction. The promise that life can go on, no matter how bad our losses. That it can be good again. 

Little do you know I know you’re hurtin’ when I’m sound asleep
Little do you know I all my mistakes are slowly drowning me
Little do you know I’m tryin’ to make it better piece by piece
Little do you know I…
I’ll love you til the sun dies…
So lay your head on me…

Keith’s nightmares in S2 got me thinking…

Chcesz zrozumieć, czym jest rok życia? Zapytaj o to studenta, który oblał roczny egzamin. Czym jest miesiąc życia, powie ci matka, która wydała na świat wcześniaka, i czeka, by wyjęto go z inkubatora, bo dopiero wówczas będzie mogła przytulić swoje maleństwo. Zapytaj, co znaczy tydzień, robotnika pracującego na utrzymanie rodziny w fabryce albo kopalni. Czym jest dzień, powiedzą ci rozdzieleni kochankowie, czekający na kolejne spotkanie. Co znaczy godzina, wie człowiek cierpiący na klaustrofobię, kiedy utknie w zepsutej windzie. Wagę sekundy poznasz, patrząc w oczy człowieka, który uniknął wypadku samochodowego, o ułamek sekundy pytaj biegacza, który zdobył na igrzyskach olimpijskich srebrny medal, a nie ten złoty, o którym marzył przez całe życie. Życie to magia

Omega!Tony curiously wondering why Steve has gotten more protective of him all of a sudden. He has always been protective of him, very much so, but he seems to get more stressed, worried and frustrated whenever anything remotely dangerous happens to Tony. Let’s not even talk about missions which Steve tried to ban him from joining in a fit of alpha rage and that ended up with Tony refusing to speak to him for a whole week because he was pissed

It turns out though, when Tony goes for his monthly check up, that he’s pregnant and Steve had been sensing the change within him, feeling the need to be more protective than usual. It all makes sense and Tony can’t help but roll his eyes fondly because of course, Steve was just looking out for him and their growing child. 

When Tony tells Steve the news, he’s kissed very passionately and Steve is overjoyed, placing a gentle hand on Tony’s stomach, his smile soft and warm. 

Tony forgives him for all of the protective alpha behavior in seconds.
