Cuteness can easily disarm even the most heartless of persons…at least sometimes. It can certainly make the more soft-hearted smile broadly at a cute kitteh battling with all his might to conquer a pack of pasta or a strawberry gold fish about to be swallowed whole by a shark. (Wait, that doesn’t sound right, does it?) It is remarkable to see how well cuteness can be rendered through digital paintings and it made it difficult, on our end, not to share. For today, at least, we’ve decided to slim it down to cute and cuddly animals.
So here they are, some of the most adorable digital paintings of animals (and other cute creatures: real, living, or otherwise) that we were able to find. We’re certain that there are lots left out there, but we’re pretty sure these 40 samples will not disappoint. If there are any cute digital art you’ve discovered and want to share, or any awesome stuff you’ve created yourself, feel free to share your links below. After all, we do love hearing from you. No harsh words please. Today, if just for today, we shall settle only for cuteness.
