Hey so this is a really long shot but my cat is lost. I depend on her for so much. She’s the living embodiment of my fight for mental stability, I adopted her exactly a year after I was released from the hospital after threatening suicide. She means so much to me and she’s lost because my dad let her out of the house when she was annoying him. I live in Plymouth Minnesota. It’s cold as fuck here and it’s supposed to snow tonight. Please try to get the word around.

i! dont know who i am! who the fuck am i!!! what the fuck do i want to do in life!!! what are even my own interests besides the things i cling to!!! i dont know !!!!

cat face tutorial i guess??

I can try!!! my faces are actually pretty basic/usually follow the same model so this isn’t exactly revolutionary lol  

I always start with the muzzle first no matter the angle, it offers a good starting point and i can judge where the rest of the proportions go from there. (for some reason the video cut out the last bit but i redrew the ears lol). I try to sketch fast so i can get the initial idea/concept out before going back in and doing revisions (this was done in like 6min)

my goal isn’t to recreate the original photo perfectly - the reference photo is there so i can use it as a guide for my proportions 


Here are some general proportion rules/guides for drawing more stylized. I always use the vertical face line to align my nose and mouth. 

thats pretty much it! make sure to avoid having the same face syndrome by switching up your features - eye shape, fur length, cheekbones, nose etc. i tend to favor slanted eyes and triangular faces and short fur!! have fun experimenting

Tabby Genetics Guide

hi hi, so i noticed some people have trouble with identifying/understanding how the tabby gene works, so i thought i would make an easy guide for you!!


*Note - all red cats are tabbies. There is no such thing as a “solid” red or cream cat. If a red/cream cat appears solid, it is because they are a ticked tabby.

There are, in essence, 2 tabby patterns - Mackerel (tiger stripes) and Classic (blotched). The other tabby patterns seen in cats are gene modifiers that affect the tabby gene and change it. 

Most dominant to most recessive - 

Ticked 

Spotted 

Mackerel 

Classic 

Ticked Tabbies

The color on the hair shafts alternates, giving these cats a “salt-and-pepper” look. The ticking gene “masks” the regular tabby gene on the body, which is why ticked tabbies still have stripes on their face, tail, and legs - these are called residual markings.

Agouti Tabby

If a kit inherits 2 copies of the ticking gene (meaning both parents are ticked), then they will NOT have the residual markings. These cats will have a light underside and dark back/body. This is most evident in breeds like the Somali, Abyssinian, and Singapura!

(this kitty has the black ticking along her spine, forehead and tail, but doesn’t have any tabby stripes!)

Charcoal Tabby

The charcoal tabby is a wild variation of the agouti gene that causes a random distribution of black on the pelt. Charcoal tabbies are most common in the Bengal & Savannah breeds, and they have very distinct facial markings. NOT to be confused with smoke tabbies. The tabby gene usually shows through the ticking, although the ticking is still evident.


Spotted Tabbies

The spotted tabby gene “breaks up” the tabby pattern into spots. These spots follow the fur direction and can vary in size. Since this gene “modifies” the regular tabby gene, these kitties still have horizontal stripes on their legs, tail and face. This tabby type is pretty common and is seen most in the Ocicat, Egyptian Mau and British Shorthair!

Rosetted Tabby

There are many different variations of the rosette gene (arrow, pawprint, donut, cloud). This is a spotted tabby with the agouti gene, which causes the hairs in the center to be lighter and ticked. These markings look like leopard spots and are almost exclusive to the Bengal breed. 


Mackerel Tabby

This is the most common and familiar tabby type. This is also the “default” tabby type. These kitties have “tiger stripes” on their body. Stripes can vary in closeness and size by individual

Broken Mackerel Tabby

These mackerel tabbies stripes break and sometimes form “spots” or bars, but don’t be fooled - this is still a mackerel tabby. These tabbies are also very common

(see how the stripes break up into spots on the shoulder and near the stomach??)

Braided Tabby

In the Toyger breed, the mackerel tabby gene has been modified to create thicker and more wavering lines to resemble a tiger. This is called “candle-flame” or braided. 


Classic Tabby

This is the recessive form of the mackerel tabby, and is also pretty common. The classic tabby markings will spiral and create big blotches of pattern on the body.  An ideal classic tabby has a “bulls-eye spiral” on their side and is most often seen in the Maine Coon or British Shorthair!

Marbled Tabby

Sometimes also called a Clouded Tabby, these cats are a modified version of the classic tabby. Agouti (ticked) hairs appear in the center of the tabby stripes, usually in the bulls-eye, which gives them a two-toned tabby look. This is evident in breeds like the Bengal and Sokoke! 


OTHER TABBY PATTERNS

Lynx Point 

This is a colorpoint cat with the tabby gene. Colorpoints have partial-albinism that causes the cooler parts of their body to develop color, such as the face, tail and legs. These tabbies can come in any of the other tabby patterns ^ and paired with the colorpoint gene. These cats will display tabby markings where there is pigment.

Torbie / Tabico / Caliby

This is a tabby-tortie, or tabby-calico. These cats are also sometimes called patched tabbies. They can come in any tabby variation ^ . These cats display two or 3 colors (black & red, blue & cream, chocolate, cream & white etc) and also have the tabby gene. These can sometimes be hard to identify against regular tabbies because the colors can blend and mix to be almost indistinguishable. They will carry the same tabby marking all over 

Smoke Tabby

This is a tabby cat with the smoke gene. The smoke gene is a variation of silver, where the roots of the hair are pigmentless. These cats usually have a dark face mask and darker paws and tail. They can come in any tabby pattern

(black smoke tabby vs black silver tabby)

hey if you get the free time (if you haven't done it before) is there absolutely any way you could do a tutorial on the way you draw grass?

yea sure !! i’ll show u guys the simple way i do grass for our pmvs and stuff. i usually don’t worry too much about it being super detailed bc its only there for a few seconds, and this is a pretty quick method that only takes me like 5min or so to do bgs 

this is the brush i use. i downloaded it from some pack on dA, its basically just a skinny chalk brush. i like the way it feels when i scribble with it 

i usually pick 4 shades of a color for my grass. depending on what kinda tone i want i make my darker colors bluer, redder, or purpler etc than my base

base -> slightly darker -> darker -> darkest

bg is a gradient on my base layer, then i just paint a quick grass layer with my base color. try to avoid doing a straight line bc forests are rarely flat 

then i take my next color and just kinda scribble haha. i layer on all my colors this way, just scribbling on top of each other. i use the color picker to slightly blend them a bit but i don’t blend that much 

i try to vary my brush size a lot, sometimes using big stokes or tiny scribbles. usually the darker my color gets the smaller my brush will be

then i add some grass details. just some scribbly stalks and stuff 

add some trees and shrubs with the lasso tool and blur them and bada bing bada boom ur done. you can add some rocks + shrubs and plants to make it more interesting
