Neko Reference Sheet by nekophoenix Neko Reference Sheet by nekophoenix
Chibis, for some reason, ridiculously hard for me to pull off.

Neko's quite possibly my most popular character, so thought why not give her a reference sheet :3

Now, this is to emphasise her markings ARE NOT set, they can be swirls, stripes, hell even do your algebra homework on her if you think it'll look cool, and that they're totally optional, as is her gender. Female, male or genderless body, whatever! :3


Will be offering these chibi reference sheets for a discount price! :3

Hope you like!

I don't know what you mean. Do you mean the layout, the character design or tracing/copying it?

I actually offer chibi reference sheets like this for $10 (as in, same base, I'll just edit it to your character)

Oh so sorry for the confusion. I guess what I mean is layout and chibi anatomy. My anthros r not chibis but this chibi design wud make it easier for me to display fur markings for My characters leaving more room for text of the character bio....I will definitely pass ur offers along. Ur chibi refences r so adorable

My anthros typically aren't chibi either - but sometimes these kinds of reference sheets are easier to read. Well, I don't own chibis or anything, so I think it should be okay! If you're using your own style/art.

I always love seeing a full set of swirls on NekoPhoe. Its always such a dance for the eyes. I really love seeing how your pen doodled around. And even if they're not set designs, they SEEM the same thing every time.

Why thank you! Though her swirls aren't set, I like them to kinda look recognisable <3 I don't draw her half enough

Neko has this adorable little :T look that makes me happy haha.

I always love seeing them, hell I love drawing them. The swirls and patterns you did here are just lovely, and I love seeing hearts make it into the design, just something about them and swirls and dots I love seeing. I love their warm colors too and how balanced their blue eyes are with that. Their ears are a minor detail I've loved as well, though I know I've been guilty of forgetting the white dots in the past :'D Is the earring a new thing? I don't remember seeing it before, its a nice little touch I think, especially since it seems to be blue outlined with pink which contrasts nice and subtly with the other colors.

Is the little heart in the speech bubble a constant? Or is it like with their other markings, something that doesn't always have to be there? :3

also the markings on the back of their neck look like a boooooow, just noticed, that's cute. I'm also tempted to draw them again, lawdy :'D

hahaha, I was so angry at the time of drawing her, I think it came across x3

You're always so so bloody nice to me :hug:
The earring has actually always been there(well, since I was 15)! I just sometimes forget to draw it haha. It has rainbow balls on it (gayest of the gays)

And the heart speech bubble thing is optional as with everything else, I don't think I could make any part of her constant haha! (it's just there because it's really on my wrist)

The bow thing just came to me when I was scribbling! I love little stupid cute touches :3

cute cute! that's my favorite thing about her is how inter-changable she is... you know it was stated as a jest, but i think some algorithms could look darn sexah (legit, not scoffing).

You know what, I think they could look good too! One of these days I'll just have to write an essay on her or try to work out an equation :3
Thank you! <3
