My character 8ball, designed by *gr-ay and given to me by =CoffeeNook because those are both lovely women.

I tried to lioness. I WILL IMPROVE. I did this without a ref just to see where I was at. I see my problems with the face now so I'll do better next time. c: This is my first lioness, so I just wanted to give myself a starting point. I wanna get good at big cats because I have a cheetah and a saber character as well...

Hey... Would it be okay with you if I used this as a general pose reference? because obviously, its pretty hard to get animals to do a pose like that naturally, unless you were a decent taxidermist, I assume. And I wouldn't be exactly a decent taxidermist. :P I'll credit you too if you so desire. :)

Aw man, I love this! Why are you so good at poses. Like, why. And I freaking love the way you do paws ahhh. For your first lioness this is freaking awesome, holy crap. As for critique(I don't think I can critique without a premium membership?? Idr and I'm lazy lol) all I really got is the chest/body looks a little thin? Idk I think it'd be easier for me to show with a redline galdfa. That and the nose is a bit long for felines(CAT FACES ARE SO HARD FOR ME. Idk why I just suck even though I know how they're SUPPOSED to look bleh), but that's all I got really. I feel so unworthy critiquing your art omg ;-; Gah but overall, I love this alot. :heart:
