Red Panda Study by synchra Red Panda Study by synchra
This is just some facts and doodles about red panda anatomy that I drew last year. Really rough quick stuff. They're just things that people tend to not notice about them.

I've been studying these little puffballs for quite a few years now so I figure I should share my red panda knowledge with you all!

I also wanted to upload something to test fixing my gallery! ::crosses fingers:: (Wow the uploading process has changed.)

Awesome anatomy ref, I alwaaayys see people giving red panda's digitrade legs and 4 "toes" like most wildlife, its a hugely common mistake! :O
And hey not sure if you knew this little fact but; it turns out red pandas even have slight link to reptiles, as they reason they stick out there tongues a bunch is because they actually can pull scent vapors from the air using their tongues, much like snakes and lizards do! ;D
They're quite little scientific marvels aren't they? x3

Are you sure you're 100% correct on the anatomy on the back legs? cause I've found not one but two other pics/guides that contradicts your "teachings"

Yes. Like bears, they walk on the entire bottoms of their feet. It's locomotion, so just like humans, in motion, you will see them on each part of the foot. :) If you study them at the zoo or in videos, it's pretty easy to see.

That second link is a cat! lol The first one is probably meant to be mid-motion but even then there is a lot of inaccurate stuff out there.

This is fantastic! Thanks for the guide here - I'm making a closet monster who is based (mostly) upon red pandas, so this should help me straighten some design choices out with her!

Thankee! =D

This is some great reference! I'm creating a character that is a red panda or part red panda/part cat. I'm still developing the character.
But this is a nice reference guide to look at. :D

Hey, just wanted to say a quick thanks for making this. I was recently commissioned to draw a red panda character and realized I knew very little about how to draw them. This really helped me get a better understanding of how to draw them! [link]
