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. 

Zack and Trini have the same taste in girls and Zack constantly flirts with them and encourages Trini to flirt, too. It goes something like this: “Crazy girl, just go talk to her. It’s not that hard.“ 

"Zack, no she already caught us looking an-" 

"HEY YOU, IN THE GREEN! MY FRIEND HERE THINKS YOU’RE CUTE!”

“Zack, no- Get back here you little shit, I-”

“HEY, YOU IN THE BLACK! TELL YOUR FRIEND I THINK SHE’S CUTE, TOO!”

Chcesz zrozumie膰, czym jest rok 偶ycia? Zapytaj o to studenta, kt贸ry obla艂 roczny egzamin. Czym jest miesi膮c 偶ycia, powie ci matka, kt贸ra wyda艂a na 艣wiat wcze艣niaka, i czeka, by wyj臋to go z inkubatora, bo dopiero w贸wczas b臋dzie mog艂a przytuli膰 swoje male艅stwo. Zapytaj, co znaczy tydzie艅, robotnika pracuj膮cego na utrzymanie rodziny w fabryce albo kopalni. Czym jest dzie艅, powiedz膮 ci rozdzieleni kochankowie, czekaj膮cy na kolejne spotkanie. Co znaczy godzina, wie cz艂owiek cierpi膮cy na klaustrofobi臋, kiedy utknie w zepsutej windzie. Wag臋 sekundy poznasz, patrz膮c w oczy cz艂owieka, kt贸ry unikn膮艂 wypadku samochodowego, o u艂amek sekundy pytaj biegacza, kt贸ry zdoby艂 na igrzyskach olimpijskich srebrny medal, a nie ten z艂oty, o kt贸rym marzy艂 przez ca艂e 偶ycie. 呕ycie to magia
