Starlight Eyes by kittytreats Starlight Eyes by kittytreats
This is my cat Starlight who recently passed away. Don't worry though, she was getting old and was ready to go. She was an awesome cat though, loved to hunt >.< So I noticed I didn't have any life-like drawings and I have to submit 3 of them to AI online for my portfolio.. I"m a little nervous that they won't accept me hahaha. Gah now I have 2 more to draw... not sure.. maybe the Ozzy picture I've been wanting to do but I know it will take longer. This picture only took me one day, did it last night at 12:30am.

Here is the refernce photo.

Tools: Gimp to take out the grid via filters, Sandford's Turquoise 2B pencil, and my fav mech pencil: Techniclick II. What's your fav tools? Oh and drawn on Xerox #110 paper.

Thanks for the comment! I spent more time on this one hehe, anyways it's all good, she was old and ready to go. Ah I miss my current cat though, I moved in with my fiance but we can't have pets so I had to leave her at home with my mom. Prob a better place since it's out in the country so she can run around.

Wow, that is kind of weird, actually.. It is the same with me and my current cat.. ^^;
My fiance and I moved half way across the country last year to the city and didn't want to risk taking my cat on the airplane with us (he nearly had a heart attack when I move out to ONT, so we didn't want to risk it again since he is even older now than he was before), so he is with my mother still. :3

Ooh, I'm lovin' that head. Looks exactly like your reference photo!

The back though, looks a little strange. Looking at the photograph you referenced from it's at an od angle there as well, so it's not that bad. The paws could use some work - but overal, I lovely peice of work.

Good luck getting into AI :3 I'm sure they'll accept you!

Thank you very much for the comment! Ah yes! I knew there was a few things that needed to be fixed but I couldn't put my finger on it *LOL* Yeah the angle is pretty weird so I have having problems figuring out how to draw her back. Her paw was hard to do too since the picture was cut off. Thanks again!
