Cat Portrait – Completed

Apr. 26th 2012

Coloured pencil cat.

I didn’t work this one as much as I usually do, using fewer layers of coloured pencil, preferring to let the tone of the paper show through more.

Cat Sketch – Work in Progress

A cat I started work on today:

Coloursoft pencils on Mi-Teintes paper.

I want to keep this one fairly simple, and not add as much detail as I usually do, instead utilising the tone of the paper for shading. Whether or not I actually manage to restrain myself, we shall see.

Some people have asked me about how I draw fur, so with the piece I’m currently working on I’m going to make a tutorial of sorts with it.

I’m liking the coloursoft pencils a lot for pet portrait work. I’m considering using them for my other work too, though I’ve never been much of a fan of them.

I’ve been trying out Derwent Coloursoft pencils for this portrait. Preferring them so far over my usual Inktense pencils for pet portrait work.
