Cute Animals That Are Actually Pointy

I haven't worked with gouache near often enough and I tend to go for a more realistic style so this was a great class for an artistic stretch! Unfortunately, I didn't really get a lot of work in progress shots.

They're kind of naturally cute so I didn't really exaggerate the look on the hedgehog that much.

I think polar bears are pretty cute for vicious predators too but I did push the eyes and the position of the features a little to make the cute overshadow the teeth that I know are in there (Canadian girl who grew up in the North here!)

This was a great class, it's made me look around and picture :"cuter" versions of the things that I see around me. Thank you, Romica!
