This painting reminds me of the warrior books and I used to love those books :D. It's very beautiful and realistic though, it's almost like I could reach out and feel its fur.

The eyes are so beautiful :heart: (And the chin is very realistic. Kitty chins are hard to draw, at least in my opinion.)
I don't know how, but she looks alive.

Thank you so much! And yes, cat chins are incredibly hard to draw, I thought I was the only one who found this! They're so hard to get looking normal D:

You're very welcome :) It's just maybe that they're so fluffy and undefined and it's not really a human shape, maybe? Please. You must use references? It's so incredibly realistic. My opinion doesn't rate as much but this piece is fantastic. The fur patterns and the whisker-eyebrows... :3

This is absolutely stunning. I just love the curious yet subtle shape of the pupils, in that they resemble the outline of a person. Definitely one of the best cat-related pictures I've seen in a while. <3

Oh my gosh! This is fabulous! I thought it was a photo!

So might I ask, what type of pastel pencils did you use? I have some oil pastels, but they are thick like crayons and I couldn't even begin to get the lovely lines that you have.

Thank you! Yes I hate oil pastels, I can never get any detail with them! I use Faber-Castell pastel pencils (:

But I noticed that you said, in a comment to another... my favourites are probably Conte pastels though".
I'm not sure if they have the same makes here (I'm thinkin' I'm a gonna hafta make a shoppin' run tomorrow), but why do you like the Conte pastels better?

xxx-ellie Featured By Owner Jun 20, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Ohh, no, this is done in pastel pencils (: the other you're talking about is just done in pastels! So yeah. Faber-castell is my favourite brand of pastel pencil, conte probably my favourite pastel brand, simply because it's the only proper artist pastel set I have! All the rest is cheap, shop-bought low quality pastels hehe.
