Big Cat Rescue - part two
The first part of this article is here. :meow:
Big Cat Rescue, in Florida, is home to about 80+ lions, tigers, bobcats, cougars and other species of exotic felines... I discovered, here on deviantART (dA), a few hundreds pictures about Big Cat Rescue (BCR)... I tried my best to identify the cat on each of them, but I may have made a few mistakes... Under each picture, is the link to the cat's biography on BCR's website, and the link to the photographer/artist on dA.

I created Ian Maigua Pictures as a place where I can show you all the skills that I have learned as an animator. As an animator and teacher, I will present these animation concepts in a way that is simple to understand. In this site, I will provide you with some step by step tutorials that will show you how to use these animation methods in your animated films. My ultimate goal for this site is that you will use these techniques in order to tell awesome stories through the art of animation.


I have been binge watching Naruto all day. I felt kind of guilty, so I decided that I should do something productive by drawing my own "Naruto-ish" character.

Do you guys think that this character has been designed similarly to the characters in the Naruto series? Let me know. 
Animation Workstation Digital Painting
Hey guys. I decided that in the next upcoming year I am going to start posting some more animation tutorials on my Youtube Channel. So I decided to start by creating the channel banner that I am going to use for my Youtube channel. 
Hi guys. I decided to draw a caricature portrait of Abraham Lincoln. Does my Lincoln cartoon caricature look similar to the real Abraham Lincoln? Let me know in the comment box below.

Hi everybody

I recently just drew a cartoon portrait of myself animating a cartoon in Photoshop. I would like this sketched drawing to be painted.  My budget for this project is $50 dollars.

Send me a note that shows me your best digital painting. This will help me to figure out which artist I want to work with. 

Let me know as soon as possible.

I am a self taught animator who loves learning about the techniques that were used to create wonderful 2D animated films like the Lion King, Tarzan, and Mulan. This desire to learn the techniques of making animated movies is what inspired me to create my animation website. In this website, I create animation tutorials that show the animation techniques that I have learned so far is a simplified way. My ultimate goal for the site is that I want it to be best animation tutorial guide that is designed to help people became better animators.

Thanks for checking out my site, and also I wanted to let you know that I am currently in the process of creating a head tutorial that I will be releasing this week on my blog.
