Big Cat Rescue - part two
The first part of this article is here. :meow:
Big Cat Rescue, in Florida, is home to about 80+ lions, tigers, bobcats, cougars and other species of exotic felines... I discovered, here on deviantART (dA), a few hundreds pictures about Big Cat Rescue (BCR)... I tried my best to identify the cat on each of them, but I may have made a few mistakes... Under each picture, is the link to the cat's biography on BCR's website, and the link to the photographer/artist on dA.

Canyon was a male sand cat, He arrived at BCR in October 2003, when he was three months old, with four more baby sand cats. (Extract from his biography) "Canyon loves to climb and spend time in his tree, so keepers placed a den

I created Ian Maigua Pictures as a place where I can show you all the skills that I have learned as an animator. As an animator and teacher, I will present these animation concepts in a way that is simple to understand. In this site, I will provide you with some step by step tutorials that will show you how to use these animation methods in your animated films. My ultimate goal for this site is that you will use these techniques in order to tell awesome stories through the art of animation.


Dewey Run Cycle Deviantart
I recently created this rough animation test using firealpaca. I just need to finish the coloring the character, and then I will add a cool background. I can't wait to show you the final result.
Life Drawing Practice #2
This is a life drawing sketch that I did using one of Senshi stock's photos. My life drawing technique is pretty simple. First I will draw the life sketch based on the actual photo reference. After doing this, I will literally stare at the image for about 5 minutes. During that time, I will mentally draw all the basic shapes that I see in the drawing. This enables me to get a rough idea of how I am going to draw the image without using a photo reference. 

This simple practice will dramatically improve your life drawings. Try it out
Firealpaca Test
This is a simple coloring test that I did in Firealpaca. My focus was to see how I could color a character in firealpaca for an upcoming animation course that I am working on. 
Jumping Frog animation
Hi guys.
I just recently finished a jumping frog animation. I used some squash and stretch because I wanted to prevent the frog from feeling stiff as it was jumping up and down. I would really like know what do you think about this animation? Comment below
Fan pose drawing (Life Drawing)
This life drawing pose was based on one of Senshistock's figure drawing poses. My personal goal is to draw a pose from real life, and then eventually draw the same pose from my imagination. This exercise will develop my life drawing skills.

I am a self taught animator who loves learning about the techniques that were used to create wonderful 2D animated films like the Lion King, Tarzan, and Mulan. This desire to learn the techniques of making animated movies is what inspired me to create my animation website. In this website, I create animation tutorials that show the animation techniques that I have learned so far is a simplified way. My ultimate goal for the site is that I want it to be best animation tutorial guide that is designed to help people became better animators.

Thanks for checking out my site, and also I wanted to let you know that I am currently in the process of creating a head tutorial that I will be releasing this week on my blog.
