4. Pencil?

Great eye work. The whole face is so excellent. Not discounting the rest, but man is it hard to get eyes and a face right. You did.

5. Prismacolor pencils

I was looking down at him so the perspective is a little different than usual, and yes, it was a bit difficult to do his face, especially at an angle.

6. Lovely. What immortal hand and eye? You captured his individuality and something universal yet

totally specific in his depths. Those eyes.

8. Thank you!

You made me look at it again to see what you saw in it.

Itís funny how as an artist you arenít always aware of what you capture. Seeing your own art through the eyes of others is quite surprising sometimes.

Thanks!

10. He looks like he's a bit disappointed that he's not worshipped as a god, the essence of feline.

Well done!

11. It's probably more like disbelief that anyone would dare not worship him!

LOL!

14. Whew! What a relief to see that it is a

drawing that you did of your cat. From the OP title, at first I thought it might be a video of your cat doing a drawing. I'm already a bit paranoid.that cats are taking over the world and looking down on us.

I'm no art critic, but it looks to me like you captured more than just the physical likeness of the cat. There's character and personality in the drawing. Looks, in fact, like a cat who could take over the world, if he chose to, but could also decline to be bothered with the responsibility of it.

15. LOL! Cats may very well take over some day

but why bother. We already do their bidding.!

I think I captured just enough of the wildness in the cat that it comes across as true to what cats are like. There is no humanized cuteness there. He looks like he may have been soaking up the sun when he suddenly sees a movement that might turn out to be prey.

Thanks!

16. My cat has two totally separate modes.

One is purely feline wild independence. The other is saccharine, suck-up sweetness. If I had pics of her in each mode side by side, nobody would recognize it as the same cat.

17. Yeah, that personality shape shifting thing they do is really something

They keep us on our toes, probably just because they can.

20. I want to pick him up and smooch him!

You did a great job describing his mass with the shapes of his markings.
