Cat by Dragarta Cat by Dragarta
Yay for original titles! So, I wanted to draw something different and practise drawing realistic animals. I've found one really beatiful photo and deciced to dedicate it to my grandparents because they have beautiful white cat too. And another thing - this was my first try with Prismacolor pencils and I must say they are really great!

Prismacolor pencils on black paper, about 8 hours of work

Cat by =Dragarta =litttle-princess says, "I saw this picture a while ago and I admit it! = Dragarta got me. I thought it was real. The way she made the cat's eyes, light and shadow effect.. everything is perfect, and honestly I think this drawing looks more real than the reference she used to do it, no kidding." I have to agree. At first I thought it was a photo but soon realized it was quite a detailed traditional art! ( Suggested by litttle-princess and Featured by WDWParksGal )

Thank you! You should better ask the photographer and reference from original photo. It will be a better practise this way :)

.... When I looked at it, I was like. "Why is this in the Traditional Art category?"
Then I saw that you drew it and I was mindblown.
This is insane. Wow.

How big was the piece? There is certainly plenty of detail and I'm curious how much space you used to create the detail. If you can see by my icon, I like to draw cats and my goal is always to create the texture and detail that you show here.

Your first time with those pencils?! 1) I thought it was a photo at first. 2) I would have assumed you'd been working with those pencils for years! This is absolutely stunning!
