I don’t have anything against dogs, and I’ve tried doing some cows and chickens too, but cats are just so
much more fun easier.
If I show someone a bunny or a kitten, they tell me can you do a “such and such” they are my favorite, why don’t you do a (dog, chicken, pig, cow)???To be honest I haven’t worked at making many other animals yet, and I am afraid I will have a mini obsession with pigs or cows, like I did with bunnies. Once I start drawing them it is hard to stop.
Plus, when I switch animals like say from cat to dog, I am always afraid my dog will turn out looking like a cat. I have to remember to do the ears and nose differently and when I make the switch from cats to dogs, the first few dogs are kinda cat like in their appearance.
First attempt at a cow.
I played aound with cows for a few days, I think if drew as many cows as I did cats I would eventually find something about them that I liked. I just need more practice, or more time to practice. Did you ever notice how big a cow’s forehead is? and that a cow’s eyes are right by its ears? These are things you start to notice if you look at a lot of cows on google.
I’ve been having fun with the chickens, I usually laugh to myself as I finish them up. I just find them so funny. They are always walking around trying to look important with their scrawny necks and bony knees.
Mice are cute too (when they aren’t in your house chewing your walls and pooping on the counter).
Maybe I should practice more pigs too? or is this a dog? The face says pig but the tail says dog. To be honest I think this may have been a non-dominant hand drawing in the truck while Erik was driving.
Well there is no mistaking this one……
