Kitten Punches

The other day on the Twitters this brief, yet awesome, exchange went down:

At which point I thought, YES. THIS MUST BE A THING. And thus:

Surprising no one, drawing kittens (or anything) punching Nazis is VERY therapeutic. I HIGHLY recommend.

 

Here's my design process for this piece. To start, I sketched out a few thumbnails to work out the optimal kitten punch.

Once I decided on a composition, I refined the image with a rough sketch. BAM! POW! Go kitten go!

I then applied digital ink via Manga Studio and made the hair extra floopy.

Finally, time for colors! At this point I moved over to Photoshop because it gives me a ton more options for coloring and the text capabilities are much more advanced. Also at this point I had to decide what type of cat to make the kitten. There was no question in my mind; the kitten was either tortoise shell or calico because the lady means business.

 

And there you have it. KA-POW! Just because she's a wee kitten doesn't mean she doesn't pack a mean punch.

 

IN ADDENDUM:

YES ALL THE YES. THIS is the story we need right now.  Thanks Gwenda!
