colored pencil cat

5x7 Prismacolor pencil
This small drawing was a gift for a friend who had recently lost their pet. It was also an experiment in trying to use the style of another artist I have been admiring recently, M. Katherine Hurley . I love this vague, tonal style, especially since my usual work is so linear. I'd love to do some more work like this.
The only thing I don't like about this piece is the shape of the cat's head; it looks a little too human instead of feline. My drawing was pieced together from some bad photos of the actual cat (to see what kind of markings it had) and the poses of some other cats. I need to work on some cat studies before I do more animals!
