Hopefully this will be helpful CX

I know this wasn't at the top of the poll, but I'll probably do most of those, and I'd already started on this so I decided to finish xD

Very, very, very, amazing! Great job, but remember some drawings, like the red lined cub face, are meant to be that way, as in like a cartoon style, btw. Not meaning to be rude or anything, I love your tutorials and they've helped my drawing improve!~

Thank you for putting up this tutorial ma'am. It was very useful indeed, so I've tried out drawing the realistic cub, with some practice and some of your tips, it helped me a lot, and no tracing either. I've credit you for the original though. [link]

this is just plain awsome!!!
BloodstainedKatana Featured By Owner Jul 25, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
Your big cat tutorials are absolutely fantastic. Using reference pictures is great, but it really adds another level to understanding when an experienced big cat artist can explain the little things that maybe one wouldn't notice right away on their own, such as different head shapes among species.

Thank you so much for taking the time to make your tutorials. :)
