Latest WIP, another cat for the same owner


And where I'm up to now. This one has been done mainly in Derwent Pastel Pencils with a bit of Rembrandt soft pastels in the under tones. I'm not including the front paw that is in the reference photo. Giving it a break at the moment as I'm not entirely sure what colour to do the background, so don't want to add more detail until I make up my mind and put the background in.

I have two WIP's going at once so this may get a little confusing haha!
This one is my friends lovely little dog who sadly is no longer with us. Long black fur is a bit daunting I must admit! We'll see how I go anyhow.

Omg, these are amazing. @_@
You're an incredible artist

I'm very, er, artistically challenged. ]:
I stick to stick-figures. XD

****, my camera must be male, it just does not want to work for me!! The original is a much 'deeper' piece, the photo makes it look very washed out

Do you have a link to your facebook profile?

I have a personal facebook profile, but I am thinking about also adding a page specifically for my artwork. My current web site is not updated at all and it won't let me download most images, so I rely on facebook at the moment to showcase my art.

I am finding the facebook page useful Liz, and for free advertising you can't go wrong! Every time you update something your 'fans' get notified of it, where as with a website they have to go out of their way to check if you have any updates.
I know the feeling with the website, I've had to go back to my old freewebs page, the one I paid for started going crappy on me, I couldn't update anything, they changed my settings so my photo's would not upload to the same size etc. Freewebs has worked out quite well other than the unfortunate website address having to start with freewebs.com!!
