Domafox here.  As I continue to work with Canine heads, I would like some guide for Felines.  Mostly Tigers, Snow Leopards, or Cheetahs.

Thanks Again.

I dont have any diagrams. But people have told me that when your doing felines, you need to make short muzzles. dont forget whiskers. probably rounder ears. but still somewhat triangular. But some cat like creatures do have round ears and not triangular.

Here are a couple of guides that Tabuu drew up for lions (they've helped me a good bit, as felines aren't my forte... but I'm working on it)




Hope they help...

Here's how I do big kitty heads:



I basically use the same design for each specie, then change it's colors/size where needed.

*NOTE*: The lines with the XXXXX's on them are what you erase.

In comparison between a feline head and a canine head, the feline's head is more circular-shaped while the canine's head is usually slightly oval-shaped.



No surprise, the feline's muzzle is quite a bit shorter and thicker.  

The ears really depend on the species.  Some felines, like the house cat have large pointed ears, while lions and tigers have shorter ears.  Same thing with canines.  Foxes have large pointy ears, while some species of domestic dog have round ears.

Here's some of my own pictures.  Feel free to use them to compare each other.  (note:  Some of these are not my characters)
