A Cat Always Lands on his Feet by flamewarflipsides A Cat Always Lands on his Feet by flamewarflipsides
THIS PIECE HAS BEEN REDONE:

:la::la::la::la:

I'm not sure where the whim to draw this came from. There was a scene in an RP I do with some friends where Mewtwo jumped out of a tree and landed real cool, but that was like, months ago. I tried to draw it after the fact and wasn't really happy with my results. Today I was bored and went to draw it, and I couldn't get the proportions right. Then I remembered, Art Academy will let you take a picture, put the picture on the top screen, superimpose a grid over it, and then show the same grid on the touch screen.

So I spent about an hour getting a picture of myself in this exact position, copied it to system memory, put it on my top screen, and went to town.

Not my best work, but I'm really happy with how it turned out.

Made with Art Academy First Semester as always.

Mewtwo is a Pokemon, and like all Pokemon, is the property of Nintendo. I draw this stuff to celebrate their work and possibly encourage other people to try it.

Now fixed with the shadows I screwed up the first time...

Thanks! This piece really helped me figure out how to do perspective. It was a really important moment in my growth as an artist.

Thanks, but I'm also a lot older than you and took a lot of art in school. You'll get there with time. :)

Honestly, most of what I learned to do right I learned from Art Academy: First Semester. You can kinda see my progression in my gallery. Re-doing lessons in it lead me to the revelation about perspective and shading I had in this piece, and I haven't really looked back. :)

Thanks.

I wish I could learn all by myself, but something about the way my brain works just didn't allow that. It took a game showing me how to shade the same thing several times to really make it click. I guess we don't all have talent, but those of us who don't can make up some of the difference with hard work and education. :)
