Feline paw studies by NadiavanderDonk Feline paw studies by NadiavanderDonk
Made these studies yesterday to not forget about the anatomy, thought i'd share. I always find the paw structure the most facinating part of the feline. How the claws is built to retract is just genius. Not the mention when a cat paw is without fur (like sphynx cat's) they actually look like fingers. [link]

My cat is always my model. X3

yeah... the way the retraction/extension of claws work is really interesting... *blinks* webbed toes?  *really*?.. I did *not* know that... which cat is that? or all they all that way?
thanks for sharing :)

Wow, wonderful details! These might come in handy the next time I'm drawing felines.

This reminds me of that one time years ago when I decided to study and draw my sleeping cat for a change. I believe that is also when I discovered that unlike the front paws, feline hind paws only have 4 toes.
