Penelope from this sketch depicted gaining her final look gradually - after colouring in Photoshop, she received additional details and shading.

Penny's face was modeled after this screencap from "The Guy of Her Dreams" episode, her fur and flesh colours (pupils, nose and ears) have also been obtained from the picture. Instead bright pink lipstick she wears in the episode, I picked the tone from "The Perils of Penelope" episode I find more matching.

Other design improvements include:

- cheeks and chin Penelope does not have in cartoon;

- spikier ears, giving her more feline look;

- eyelashes she did not retain in the following seasons (we're debating with other Garfield Wiki admins, whether it is an animation error or not, personally I believe it is);

- more detailed eyes with two-colour irises;

- reworked lips;

- and last but not least, humanoid body with female traits. In this case it was modeled after Lana Kane from "Archer TV series".

I use this method to depict the remaining characters I draw - Mona from the sketch is developed the same way.

Penelope Pussycat belongs to PAWS Inc.

alitta2Nice to see each phase! 
To be honest, I prefer the 2nd phase to all, even it is less detailed because of the missing accessories and shading, but that is more like I would imagine in a Garfield cartoon if it was made by Ralph Bakshi :D

TeeJay87Speaking of which, I did draw Mona for that episode 2 years ago and I've been wondering about remake of that 2015 picture. Naturally with both Pussycats on display. ;)

TeeJay87I've been thinking about such make-up for Penny (and Mona), since other females in "Garfield and Friends" also wear those:

- Miss Kitty has blue one

- Lola and Lorelei wear purple one;

- Gwendolyn has green eye shadow

- Kitty's knock-off from "The Garfield Show" wears similar one like Gwen
