This is something I'm working on that actually doesn't have anything at all to do with Cinco de Mayo, but its such a good fit I had to share.
Its based on my late kitty, Wendell, who loved to eat. He was black and white, and had a bobbed tail, so I'm working out how to show his pattern just right, and am also wondering if the lack of a tail (in some views) makes it hard to tell that he IS a cat. Like in this one, where his ears are hidden, I hope there's enough there to make it obvious he's a kitty. (I just realized I forgot to draw in his whiskers.)
This was my first idea sketch for this.
Something I always do is make a tight front, back and side view of a character, especially if its sort of complicated. It helps to keep proportions right when doing complicated views or perspective.
So my little Wendelito has some work to be done on him, but right now he's going to enjoy a nice plate of fish tacos and some tortillas and guacamole.
