I was recently asked to draw two beautiful cats, Nomi (white and ginger) and Jazz (brown tabby). I really enjoyed making their portraits. It was a bit of a challenge, most of my cat drawings being American Shorthairs or similar, but nonetheless fun. On Nomi’s portrait, I used some purple for shading, which was something I don’t think I’ve done before. At one point it was too purple, so I balanced it out with gray. I think that the purple makes it seem a little bit more interesting, since there’s so much white on the canvas. Jazz was darker, so I just shaded with brown.

These look so real. You did great job with the eyes.
