Scottish Wildcat ~ finished!

I can't believe how quickly I have finished this drawing. Ok, it's not anywhere near perfect - I really have to be more careful with my pencil strokes as I have tendency to work very fast - but on the whole I'm happy with it as my first piece after a long break. Drafting film is certainly interesting though I think it might work better for me on a subject with a smoother coat. I don't feel I've got the texture of her coat and without being able to layer I don't know how to achieve that. Anyway, enough waffle - here she is.

I think this has turned out fantastic Karen, and more so because this is your first attempt back at art after a break and on the dreaded drafting film.....I love it, give yourself a pat on the back !

Thank you Vic, I appreciate you stopping by. I didn't think anyone would still be looking at my blog after all this time!

Wonderful, Karen. I don't think you need to worry about the texture of the coat - it looks so realistic, almost 3D as if you could sink your fingers into the fur. Fantastic!

Thanks Jennifer, that's very kind!
