:The Art of Cross Referencing: by Katmomma :The Art of Cross Referencing: by Katmomma
Tutorial By ^Katmomma


Just goes to show you how Vital life-references are to character design. :D

It's how Disney and Dreamworks have done it for years with their characters.

Everything you need to read is above :D No use me rambling down here.


Have fun!

While I understand what Kizito's saying, I believe you said somewhere in that that this is an older piece where you had to use a mouse. ; )

I also say this is an excellent example of drawing from life what's needed to put life into a more detailed personal design.

And...I had no idea there was so much criticism on anthropomorphism in artwork still. Isn't it comparable to a song or book you don't like? Don't like the art, just don't look at it and leave it alone.

This is really great - I can't believe so little people have seen this! It makes me sad to see many artists anthropomorphizing celebrities and other people by drawing them with a generic face and just adding characteristic clothes or hair, while actually modelling the appearance of the anthro character after the human original is so much more fun in my opinion!
+Fav! This shall be spread. C:

This is lovely and very well laid out! Although I'm never thought about this when I've drawn anthro, this has actually made me realise that I DOOOO do this subconsciously!

Great tutorial hon! Lovely shot of Shafer kitty too :3
