Commission for a lady I met through work of her very fat (and fluffy) cat dubbed Totoro.
He's getting up in his years and he doesn't move as well as he used to and she asked for something cute and cartoony of him.
So I chose to try an odd angle and draw him rolling about with a ball of ribbon.
**Yes, I added in a bit of Studio Ghibli styling to it for effect. Not a whole lot, but some.
It's also transparent because it's going into a little keychain thing as well as onto a shirt (I think?)

Excuse the proportions lol, it's the first time I'm drawing a fat cat like this, and in this pose as well!
So it may look a tad wonky but I kept flipping it vertically to make sure it was looking 'ok'.
Short arms are hard to do .__.
I'm so used to long bandy legged cats :I
Ah well, the commissioner likes so that's what matters :3

Got it done, yay... I'm going to bed, I'm tired.


Sketch:


2 more outside commissions to get done and then I am DONE and I can start wrapping up the others ;__;
I need a holiday .___.

Haha awwww sorry if that was misleading ^^;
The cat's name is also Totoro haha!
I should really draw the real Totoro soon though. Been wanting to for a few years now but never got to it.
