:EDIT: New font! Let me know if you would like the older version. 

All group requests are approved!

Have you ever wanted a reference that shows every angle of your beloved character? Well, now you can have one! Compatible with all programs that read .psd files, this laboriously lined, high quality, pre-colored lineart could be just what you've been looking for! And get this- it's free! Free! Yay, life!

File includes: Lineart layer, Feature Base layer(Eyes, nose, pads, claws)displayed in gray, Color Base layer(General coloring)displayed in white.

Haha, enough of that. I know some lines are wishy-washy and sketchy, but hopefully, I've taken the backbreaking work of coloring this in for you. In case anyone is confused about this "precolored" thing, here's how it works(I've been asked this a lot): Just take the base layers, and do one of the following:
-Preserve/lock the opacity
-Create a clipping mask
-(Not recommended)Use the magic wand tool.
You can learn how to do these with this amazing tutorial by…
All layers should be pre-locked, but better safe than sorry!

I really hope you all enjoy this lineart, in all seriousness, I worked VERY hard on it, and even had to redo half.

ATTENTION: There are a few small circumstances that must be met before using this!
:bulletred: Please do NOT remove the watermark at the bottom right corner.
:bulletred: Credit in the description would be nice, even though there is a watermark.
:bulletred: Modification/cropping(If only using one angle, the watermark doesn't have to be present, but description credit is required.) is allowed!
:bulletred: You may use this for adoptables(money, points, anything!), as long as credit is given.
:bulletred: Link me your creation in the comments! I would love to see what you've done!

If you have any questions, suggestions, or comments, please feel free to note me!
Thank you, and I hope you all enjoy!

I stumbled upon your line work and I absolutely love it! I took this chance to paint out my OC for the first time. Thank you so much for creating this. I may even use your cat one as well, if you don't mind. Sometime I get caught up in drawing the character and getting frustrated when I just want to paint my idea out to have a reference to look back to for when I do draw it.

Used here! This base is absolutely fantastic! The separate layer for the eyes and pads is a lifesaver~

It appears you have given permission to use off site (furry-paws), I would provide proper credit.  Also, it appears you are allowing all use all currencies.  Would that include resizing?  Thank you for your consideration and your generosity.
