Anyway.... here's Kitschy Cute Animals in Action, or
REVENGE OF THE KITTENS!!!
Honestly, I'm on the fence about this one. I like the puppy. The puppy I used for reference, although you might not be able to tell from this, is absolutely THE cutest puppy in the ENTIRE universe. It's just a little fuzzy ball of fluff. sleeping on the floor. So that made it a little better.
The weird stylized cats though... I don't know. I guess that was me trying to get away from my thing about realism, because when the cats were drawn realistically, they were just super creepy, definitely not cute at all. Jessica helped me out, recommending that I make them super loopy with the eyes really far apart, a little chibi-ized (I shudder to admit), etc. Hmm.
What do you think? Cute and adorable or vomit city?
