Don't worry, I didn't forget about Tutorial Tuesday last week! I was just too busy while on hiatus that I wasn't able to post it. 

This one has big cat examples but mostly revolves around house cats. I may make a part 2 in the future that is more directed at big cats.

Enjoy!

this is useful but this one is more of a style choice than wrong  anatomy

Very nice tutorial! I mostly draw stylized/cartoonish felines but I do like to draw realistic cats from time to time, and this should help a lot. Thanks!

Just realized that the opposite side is only criticizing toonish or stylized feline noses and NOT what not to do when drawing REALISTIC feline noses...
There's essentially no point in showing what's wrong with them because they deviate so far from 'realistic' that they are clearly going for a specific style.
IE most people probably don't draw a realistic styled nose on a toonish character -- or a toonish nose and a realistic character.
I'm sure someone out there does - sure - but that person is bad at life XD

Not trying to piss you off, just saying those are pretty - meh - examples of what not to do. Cept the last two on the bottom- someone /might/ try those for a realistic style. So those make sense I guess. xI

Actually I included those because people do often do noses like this when doing realism. When a person has been doing cartoons for so long, they don't really notice things and let their styles slip into the anatomy. Force of habit, almost.

Also I wouldn't say people who do this are 'bad at life'. That's kind of rude.

By all means, if you have better examples of 'nonos' you are free to share with us.

Do they really? Wowee. I guess I just don't see it?
AntiDarkHeart's avatar

Some do, yes. Especially beginner artists who have never attempted realism.

And because it's their first time they use toonish styled 'mistakes' on a realistic drawing?
How very odd. Suppose I can't relate, but I suppose it must happen to someone one. *nodnod*

Not really all that odd.

Again, if you have better examples of what I should put in the "no" section, I'm all eyes.

Yeah I dunno dood *shrug*
Guess neither of us are good at making bad noses? Lol XD

Yeah, I did the "too flat" one for a long time when I tried to do realism.
