Just a random little bookmark I did using a few of the practice sketches I did a while back...
Random felines are random. I really want to try and get my kittens to look like kittens lol and not like mini-cats.
Still not sure I did that here but meh...I'll get there eventually.
No it's not the cats from "Aristocats" :XD: But I can see how people will say that with the white cat as the mum... But nope, white just felt 'right' so she is white.

I should add this::
Just so you know I'm not dismissing critiques on making legs shorter and heads bigger... which is what is the main suggestion.
This… as opposed to this… you can see the differences in build a bit and it may help to show what I'm about to explain::

[[The references I used had kittens with pretty long legs (so I'd assume they were older kittens (a month or two old) and their heads weren't that big |D
In fact I enlarged their heads to try and add more 'kitten' to it which may have worked a bit but kittens are difficult.
More so when they're older because if you don't do it just right they just look like mini cats.
There's something about their anatomy going through the transition from kitten to cat, it's hard to catch the differences just right.
So these kittens are probably about 5-6 weeks old maybe a bit younger.
I wanted to give them that long legged gangly look older kittens have while still being pudgy and floppy (like most kittens are).
The kitten tagging behind is supposed to be a runt...
Still, I'm just not feelin' it... It's irritating :XD:
To be honest with you I should have shrunk down the mum a bit... oh well :c

The references used are pretty easy to find too if you've searched 'kitten' or 'cat' on Google at some point.]]

**(If you want to use this/print it out and laminate it for a boomark, fine, but please don't sell it.)

EDIT: Apparently I have to be specific: When I say 'useable' I mean as a printable bookmark or a mini poster. I don't mean as a base, line art, traceable piece, or a guide for anatomy. Obviously seeing how many people have been saying the kittens here aren't anatomically correct that means you probably shouldn't use this as a guide for them.
Stop tracing/basing this or I will remove it from dA... be mature! Good grief!

makes a small poem

follow me my kittens
follow into the stars
the stars that shine,
the stars that are bright
from the tail to the ears
we will follow eachother all night
