Feline Face Profile Tutorial 1 by TamberElla Feline Face Profile Tutorial 1 by TamberElla
I've had this half finished for the last half month or so, so I decided to get my butt into gear and finish it! XD

Please do not ask "where's this cat?" or "why isn't ____ here?" I'll be making a part two and possibly even a part three so just hold tight until I get to the feline you're looking for :)

------

Remember:

-Do not just use this as reference! Make sure to use plenty of reference photos! The purpose of this is to simplify things so they're easier to understand, but it cannot take the place of learning from photographs!

-Every cat will look slightly different! This guide is generalizing- just like humans, each individual feline will have characteristics of its own.

-Learning the skull, skeleton, and bone structure is something I would highly recommend. Your drawings will flow much better if you have an understanding of how things are put together.

-For the tones, I used the common tones for each species. There are many variations. Be sure to look at plenty of photos so your drawing can be unique!
