I drew this fella a few weeks ago hoping to paint him, but something looked off. I couldn't place it.
So I stepped away hoping looking at it later would help. Nope, still lost.
So I'm hoping to get feedback.

What looks off?
Tips on making it look more interesting?
I just wanted to paint a mopey kitty boy D:.

For the record it's Wilykat circa 2011.
Apparently the hair is actually supposed to be ears on the kittens? So I treated it like ears.

Unpopular opinion I like the 2011 incarnation of Thundercats so so much more than its 80's counterpart. I actually despised the 80's incarnation as a kid, like would bitch and moan when my siblings watched it.

    The nose looks like it isn't on quite right- the angle is off. Also his left eye is bugging out a little.
    I liked the new version, too. It had a more compelling and cohesive story. And the characters were more three dimensional, with their own stories and motivations. Wish they'd pick it back up.

      Alright I'll dig up some references so I can see where I went wrong with the nose and go tinker with the eye.
      That could very well be my issue, thank you so much for the feedback! I can't tell you how much I appreciate it.

      My fiance doesn't like it but his complaints are mostly "they changed it". Such as Snarf being a nanny/pet and the kittens actually being younger than Lion-O. I'm with you wholeheartedly though. I mean I wish the motivations were a bit more developed and such but I still found it a lot less bland than the original. I'd definitely like to see a return too.

        Oh god. Snarf! Not having him talk was a HUGE improvement! Snarf snarf.
