Re: My Drawings of Cats


Thanks Mags, I saw this way of drawing on another forum and thought I would try this way too. I learn so much with each drawing I do, and I would recommend anybody who wants to take up drawing to just have a go, you never know how good you are until you give it a go.

Re: My Drawings of Cats


Mags,

Firstly you have to make sure you get any highlights of the eyes in the correct place there is usually one main highlight where the light enters the eye and their will be a corresponding highlight (although normally very subtle)

With the iris you just need to layer the colours until you get a more or less exact match to the colour of the cat you are drawing, I also check very carefully the size and location of the cats eyes, I will measure this countless times to make sure they are all in proportion. With the nose it is always the same angle as the cats eyes, therefore if the cats eyes are at an angle the nose will be as well.

Also shading is very important in getting the cats eyes to look correct.

Re: My Drawings of Cats


Emma I had a go at copying your eyes and nose sketch and I can honestly say that is the first time I have ever done anything that resembles a cat!!! It's not a patch on yours mind, but even my hubby could tell what it was
Did you go to Art College?

Thats excellent!!! hey practice makes perfect

No I didn't go to Art College or any art classes, the only art I did was at school, which was 16 years ago. I start drawing again in August of this year

Re: My Drawings of Cats


The last pic you posted is brill Emma and would look fantastic as an art piece on a wall in a contemporay styled building. If it was on a white canvas and they eyes were the same colour as the wall it would look very striking!

You are very talented Emma I rekon you will be famous one day

Re: My Drawings of Cats


Hello Emma,
Yours drawings are very good. I have Persian cats, had kittens not that long ago and plenty of pictures of them. Have a look at mine threads. I could even post you original of any of those pictures or take some more pictures. Iíve noticed in your drawing, there no Persian cats yet . I would be over the moon if you decide to draw one but only if one of them will inspire you . Thank you for sharing with us
