My first character

Hey guys!

I’ve been busy learning design, you know, color theory and all that stuff to make my first full character in Synfig. So I came up with anthropomorphic lynx (cuz I like animals and cat family especially). It’s basically my avatar. Here are some poses:

And here’s the face close up:

So what do you think? It’s my first character, so I need some opinions. Is anatomy correct (proportions)? Are colors toxic? If you were to find this character in a cartoon, would you find the design appealing or would you go “Ew, what a gross design!”?

P.S. There are things I am still working on of course, like how to make shadowing easier, how to make fur without introducing a lot of additional work animation wise and so on.

Hi,
Looking good. Colors are fine. Proportions are ok. You don’t have to worry about proportions since it’s an anthropomorphic character so you can play with them and exaggerate. Nice detail that you kept a whole in his pants for his tail, haha. :slight_smile:
Greetz.

I think it looks pretty nice!
