A cat called Savannah. Sketch in ballpoint pen and India ink

Drawing of a cat called Savannah in ballpoint pen and india inkHi!
I’m still way more tired than what is advisable for a normal human, but I figured that I might as well stay up until the evening and sleep in the night like normal people – So this is me staying awake!

I decided that I would try and make an effort to make a better drawing than the last one. This is a cat called Savannah, from SavannahsPawTracks.com. I couldn’t stand for the photo of this cat laying back, so I decided to draw it.

As usual, I have a little difficulties with the small details. This perspective in particular renders the head really small, and my drawings being of rather small dimensions in the first place, it was really hard not to mess up the face.. Which I did a little.. It’s a shame, because I really love this cat’s expression !

This’ll be the last one for today. I’ll grab a bite, and then I look VERY much forward to get some sleep!

  1. oh my gosh!!! your drawing took my breath away. I had forgotten to send photos of Savannah and Sage and then this showed up. It is just lovely and one of my most favorite photos of Savannah; we call her Nana. I think the face is fine. She has never ever been trusting enough to lay on her back like that again. It was about 18 or more months ago. I love this and you for giving me such a marvelous image of my precious rescue cat Nana. We have only had her 3 years. She was 5 years old when we brought her home and she was and still is very traumatized from the cruelty of people and likely others cats as she must have been outside and threatened. She is afraid of other cats but is now tolerating Sage. bless you

  2. We love this drawing of Savannah…..it looks like her and I think we remember this photo of her from the blog……………her showing her tummy which is one of those “ultimate trust” things for cats and Savvy being a rescue – well – it’s perfect for her! Well done Thomas.


    • Thanks. I find that foreshortening generally is much easier when i draw from photos and the subject is already an image.. At some point I’m going to try something more complicated in “real life” (in lack of a better word)

  3. We think this is a great drawing of our pal Savannah!

    I always struggled with foreshortening when I took some art classes in college. You did very well with it here. πŸ™‚

  4. That’s my furriend Savvy, she looks a lot like me…and we have the same hobby πŸ˜€ Great drawing again, Thomas πŸ™‚ They’re all great, also the doggies on the other pages. You’re super good. Pawkisses <3
