Traditional Artwork

Lilo [Commission]

Not long ago I received a commission asking for a custom watercolor portrait of a cat. So here’s Lilo! I struggled a bit with the long white fur since I used watercolor. Long fur usually isn’t much of a challenge for me with pencil, but using watercolor made it considerably more complicated. The eyes, as well, could have been better, in my opinion. The cat’s eyes were more rounded and oval shaped in the photo, and mine made them look a bit sharper around the edges. Despite all this, I think the portrait turned out pretty good overall, and it was really fun to paint! It’s always good to go out of your comfort zone and try a new media that you may not be fully accustomed to. Anyway, what do you guys think? Any suggestions on what I can improve in the future? Feedback and constructive criticism is always appreciated!
