Re: Cat drawing WIP update 20th Dec 2010

Amazing, some of the finest work I have see on the web. Hope to get some input from you the more I advance. Well done... The only idea that comes to mind is add the existence of a tail, and possibly the cat climbing over the top of a wooden fence with detailed wood grain, would nicely compliment the cats position.

Re: Cat drawing finally "finished" 17th September 2011

Hi guys, it's been a long, long time since I was here last but due to a hectic work schedule I just haven't been around on the interweb thingy all that much in the last several months.

Anyway, thanks to everyone who commented on the progress of this damn cat drawing.

I finally "finished" it. I say "finished" with inverted commas because I'm not too happy with the end result. Well the background specifically. I didn't plan the composition too well and ended up making the background up as I went along. Also, I only started to continue with this drawing 2 weks ago after a very, very long break. I had to rush through a little in order to get it ready for a small exhibition today. I let myself down by rushing it though because now I'm just not happy with it. Don't get me wrong, I'm really proud of the face, front paws and the log that the cat is on, but the rest of the drawing just isn't up to my personal high standards but I guess we learn from our mistakes and hopefully I won't make the same again. I wish I'd just drawn the cat and the log that it is on and maybe done a bokeh effect/highly blurred background instead of the mess that I put there instead.

As always, constructive criticism is greatly appreciated.

Apologies in advance for the quality of the scan. I wish I could take decent photos of my drawings but they always look worse than the scans.

it think the background having less detail makes the cat pop out better so i think it works just fine :D

Re: Cat drawing finally "finished" 17th September 2011

No need to critique, as you are your your own harsh critic on this one.
I will just commend you on your effort with this piece, and tell you that I think the work on the cat is fantastic.
When a drawing doesn't go as well as I planned, I have a terrible habit of not finishing it, so at least you did see it through.
This in itself will make you a better artist, as you will learn more about what works and what doesn't work.
So well done, and as usual, I look forward to seeing more from you. :)
