Yawning Cat

Hi everybody,

I took this class because of this workshop:, but I learned a lot. I was always using Illustrator as a program for drawing, with this terrible vectors spoiling all the fun. But I'm starting to get the idea :)

First project I made:

This is my project for the class. I focused on the cat and didn't thought much about what to add to it, so it might look a bit unfinished, but I hope you like it :)


I had a few hassles on the way and I hope you can maybe help out with that. First of all, two sides didn't match exactly - they overlapped, so I couldn't get rid of the edge points. Was it my fault of not following the guides (I was trying to start everything in the middle, but maybe I missed the middle points somehow)? The second thing I was worried about was the fact that the original, right part was impossible to colour as smaller parts of the design would disappear. I haven't had that problem with the duplicated part. Can you tell me what I can do to make it work the same on both sides? Thanks!

I think I just succeeded with the colouring. The coloured version has no background square, so I'm not sure what to do with the whiskers, so they look good, but are possible to include in a pin. Any ideas are welcome :)

Final pin I designed:
