Re: Imaginative Kitten


"We are what we imagine ourselves to be." -Kurt Vonnegut

This little kitten imagines that he is a mighty lion. He can't wait to grow up, and be the King of the Jungle.

Kurt Vonnegut is one of my all time favorite authors, so I definitely had to do an entry based on one of his many many memorable quotes. Thanks in advance for any votes, comments or tips!!

Check out my Hero entry too!!!

Cute!
My comment would be that the cat is reaaally cute and the best part of the design (I think better than the lion, so I wish the cat was the bigger part and the lion the smaller.

Fixed.. lol. I was thinking it was the other way around. That's what I get for not double checking before I post.

That's the one thing about posting a design after friday... the pre-derby thread is usually dead, and it is hard to get good feedback about colors and simple layout suggestions. Now that you say it, I think you are right that I should have flip flopped the sizes on the kitten and lion. Should I just re-sub an alternate version?

Re: Imaginative Kitten



I really like this, but why do the back paws of the lion look like stubs?

Do you think they should look more like the back legs? That is how I had it in my original sketch.

I still try posting in the derby thread after fridya myself - you're right, it's sloooww, but sometimes someone answers. I wish more people hung around in there after, as it's not always possible to finish designs by friday...
No harm in resubbing if you feel like it and have the time. If you do though, I would also change the backpaws of the lion as someone mentioned (or the front) so they match a bit more.
