cougar-lion cross thingie by NadiavanderDonk cougar-lion cross thingie by NadiavanderDonk
something random :meow: Wanted to train my painting style more. I still can't get the hang of it >_> but i gues, practice makes perfect?

I know the rock looks flat (used photo texture) but my main focus was the painting practice on the animal ^^ but It would look more weird without it (floating butt plz?)

I liked this drawing vey well. There are many good anime drawings there, but this one really gives a feeling of a wild animal watching you. The pose looks very natural too me. Although I can clearly see it's a drawing, it feels more like looking at a nature-photography.

Now I'm curious... Can cougars and lions have cubs together? 0o;

nope they actually can't. Cause cougars and lions aren't the same genus.

Hehe dont worry about the rock, it's always good to practice special elements of a painting. When u make a pose, do you then look at a photo I wonder, for the details of face, pose etc? Lovely shading on him as on all your other work:)

GORGEOUS. And I am propbably as bias as hell since Im a cougar nut, but this character design is freakin gorgeous as all freakin. <333
What are you guna do with her/him? o-o Cuz Im seriously dying over how pretty and warm the design is. <333



Also...don't you love it when people comment on things like "I dont like this about it" when really all it is is a sketch you do for the hell of it all? XD I cringe when I get those...makes me feel like Im ALWAYS EXPECTED to do something that EVERYBODY is guna like.

You can take the design if you want. I mean its all cougar colours so go ahead xD

ikr. I love constructive critique, but its just stupid when people go " i dont like this" its not like I am drawing to make them happy. So i dont give a fuck. It matters what I like because its my art xD

Levitating butt would be cool "D Or you could draw a chair x'D nevermind xD Really nice hybrid and design :3 It's nice to look at this piece of work ^^ And huh, painting style hm... I think it's still more drawing. Maybe more lineless things =p? (for practice the painterly style of course. this one with lines is awesome in anyway ^^)

Wow, that face XD It looks so epic, like it wants to crawl off its rock and eat your face for looking at it. I love it, I adore the way to make it look like it's just flowing into the movement, very nice <3
But yeah, gotta agree with *ShadeDreams The rock seems to not really fit in too much. But then again, it's a random picture and I suck at background XD
Beautiful works as always though Red :3

I dont care that people don't like the rock. like i wrote in the description, the purpose was to practice painting the animal. I just added the rock there so it wont look like its butt is floating.
