A Cat, Sort Of.....



















This is my first attempt at making a cat. Not really knowing where to begin, I went and stared at my cat Zoe for about 15 minutes while she was trying to nap. Poor kitty. I think she was annoyed with me because she wanted to close her eyes and I wanted her to keep them open.

After studying Zoe, I went back to my studio and drew my first cat face. I realized after I sealed it that I forgot to draw whiskers.

This isn't great but it's a start. There are a number of refinements I will make so that the next one will be better.

I had a lot of fun, though. :)

I think this one is cute. This kitty reminds me of the lion from The Wizard of Oz.

Hi Inga I agree with Summerset it is like the lion, very very cute.love the fur around his face. I don't think I would've noticed the missing whiskers had you not mentioned them :) Belinda

I think she's wonderful, and yes, she reminds me of the Cowardly Lion as well!
I once 'annoyed' my cat Misty, by taking a dozen (or so) pictures of her while she was trying to rest because I wanted to design a sweater with her details and knew I wasn't going to get it done anytime soon.
I think that was about 8 or 9 years ago; Misty's gone and the yarn is still waiting for the design to be worked up...
Someday.
I think your kitty is cute.

Wow, what a cuuuuute kitten. I think it must be a lady cat, that's why she hasn't any whiskers LOL.

I'm honoured to have you join my MAD MAMMA Flickr art doll group, as i have been an admirer of your work for some time.
