She got Class by eidolic She got Class by eidolic
8x10"
colored pencils, pastels, graphite and acrylic paint.
time involved - A LOT!!

Ok so i now love color. i used paints for my first time here, but this is hardly a painting. i really like pastels now. i figure i can get the best of both worlds by using heavy amounts of graphite which i love so much and at the same time, use color. i wanted to challenge myself here, but at the same time since this is my first attempt with pastels i wanted to get a range of practice in. i went with a cat because of its highly detailed face and hairy body. so i got a variety of practice in. i learned a lot with this. ENJOY!! oh and most of the paint was used for the wiskers...

I gotta say this, along with all of your other works are very well done pieces.

I have been requested to do a water color painting of 2 cats for a lady in Canada. I paint many of the same animals you have and did all of them in 2011, 45 paintings in total.
Keep up the great work

Stunning.

As a huge cat-lover myself I have always been quite mystified by their eyes - they seem to tell you what a cat is thinking.
You've even managed to capture the "I'm regal and I damn well know it" expression that all cats look at you with... I can appreciate how much time must have gone into those eyes!

Nice work, man!

I suppose quoting others and saying "I swore this was a photo o.o' " is just a bit cliched, eh?

I think the eyes are the best part, lovely vibrant color. Since you were painting this if the red was the natural background, you could have picked something that wouldn't pull attention away from the cat as much perhaps. Next time, of course do what you want :)
