Here’s a cat called Austin, a drawing requested by Caro from the UK who blogs over at Cataustin.blogspot.com Go have a look 🙂
This one was a little difficult, and I think that it turned out a little too messy.. Different shades of black/gray are pretty hard to render with black ink. Maybe a solution could be to exaggerate the whites in some kind of way, but i don’t know. The details also seem to have muddled a bit up, which may be due to the small size of the drawing.
Maybe it’ll be better next time.
I hope you like the drawing anyway!

Well done (again!)…….Austin is another of Sammy’s buddies from “across the pond” and I think you captured his intensity well in the drawing…….I’m sure Carolyn will love it!
I hope so – Thanks 🙂
I think Austin would love this 🙂 looks pretty good to me 🙂
So welcome 🙂
You definitely capture the faces and posture of cats well. And the scribble lines emphasize the furriness. I like it.
Thanks a lot 🙂 Coming up: more cats!
Beautiful. That is our Austin.
I’m glad you think so !
Austin is so beautiful!
Isn’t he? 🙂
I don’t think it came out “messy” at all. I think you captured his posture and expression perfectly. We know Austin and you did a wonderful job!
Thanks a lot 🙂
You did a most excellent job and captured Austin excellently! And yes, Black is very difficult! This is our painting of Spitty the Kitty – https://catfromhell.files.wordpress.com/2011/10/spitty5x7.jpg
At least with paint, you can add a touch of another color (in this case a navy blue) to create depth.
That’s a really nice painting. The blue works well to tone down the black i think. Really great eyes, and i like how Spitty is coming out of the flowers!
We know Austin through blogging, and we recognized him immediately from your drawing. Wonderful job! 🙂
Beautiful. Austin is our buddy and a handsome one at that 🙂
