Cat drawing finally "finished" 17th September 2011

Well not been here for a while due to being busy, busy, busy but thought I'd stop by and upload a drawing I've just started. It's a pic of a friends Bengal cat which is an absolutely beautiful looking beast due to the markings on it's body.

Anyway, the reference photo isn't the best unfortunately and a lot of the detail is blurred and hard to see which is a pity but hopefully I can use a little artistic licence to add in details which I know are there but just aren't clear in the ref.

Not sure how many hours so far but at a guess I'd say 10 - 15.

It's A4 in size on Bristol Smooth board using my usual selection of woodless graphite pencils and Mars Lumographs.

Hoping to get this finished in time for Christmas but I think I'm being a little too optimistic.

Critiques, comments etc, are welcomed as usual.

Just been browsing through some of the drawings that have been uploaded here since my last visit and wow, there's some excellent stuff here as usual.

Re: Cat drawing WIP update 20th Dec 2010

Firstly, thanks for the comments as always, guys.

To answer a couple of your questions, no, the cat is not lying on a gun barrel. In the reference photo it is actually climbing out of a bath but I intend to draw it as if it's climbing over a log or a rock or similar. Not sure yet but something slightly more impressive and natural to a cat than a bath.

Yes, this is just Graphite.

Anyway, here's WIPv2. I tend to revisit areas of my drawing as I progress further into it in order to make minor adjustments and correct tone and details etc,. Needs quite a bit of work on the fur up and over the head and towards the animals' back before I'll be satisfied. Not looking as natural as I would like yet but I'll get there eventually.

Once again, thanks for looking.
