This was based mostly off of lions, but can be applied to most big cats with minor changes!
Hopefully this might help a few people? Haha
I've struggled with paws and legs before, so I made this for anyone who is currently struggling CX
Don't depend on just this too heavily though, these are just sketches! Look up photos and bone structures for detailed reference!I really, really suggest just taking a few hours and looking up references and drawing paws from photos and other artists! (dont upload without permission from the artists/photographers, just for practice!)
Honestly, it helps a ton! CX
I would use photos over drawings though, because artists are bound to make mistakes, and copying other people's mistakes won't help you xD;
For example, The Lion King really simplified the paws and left out some pads, which led to a lot of artists leaving the same details out. Which is fine of course, for stylizing, but if you're going for realism or semi-realism, you should be sure to draw it correctly C:
