That cat is called Newton. He lives over at the blog “Cats Herd You” which is a statement that doesn’t surprise me a bit!
It’s hard to do a furry foreground with a dark background – the background somehow seems to “overlap” instead of being behind. I think that india ink for the background would have been better in this one.
Don’t forget to follow me on facebook, google+ and tumblr! I’m also obsessively happy about getting mentioned, featured, linked to on various blogs blips and blops!.. Or just getting shared on social media!
Now I’m off to bed!

wow…this sketch pops…what a great idea to put the darker colour as a background…gives a softer look to Newton. The experimenting is paying off my friend.
Thanks a lot 🙂
Why of course!😺
Oh, we love this! What a great, pensive look on Newton’s face. There’s great contrast between him and the dark background, so he really stands out from it. Thanks so much for drawing him! <3
You’re very welcome! I’m glad you like it!
Very nice, 456 wow you are on a tremendous roll!
Thanks! Very soon it’ll be 500!
Great drawing. I am enjoying your series very much.
I’m glad you enjoy them!
Oh! Wow! We love it!
We love this drawing, Thomas. What a good idea to use that dark background. It really provides some great depth!
Thanks. I’m glad you liked the result !
What can I say, another purrfect drawing, Thomas. We like how you critize yourself, that makes you such a great artist 😀 Pawkisses for a Happy Thursday 🙂 <3
Thanks 🙂 It’s all a learning process
