Marble Cat :3 by NoreyDragon Marble Cat :3 by NoreyDragon
Finally! This is the finished point commission for :iconalex5657123:!

It's her awesome tortoiseshell cat Portia! :) I loved drawing that fur!! But the marbles were the best fun! I love them! :iconmonkeyloveplz:

The scanner ate some colors and the paper was a little waved because of the watercolor-- But the original looks great, I'm so proud of it :iconproudplz:

Some facts: Done on normal paper (30*20cm) with color pencils, bg is watercolor. Ref used. (From a cat calendar from 2005 xD)

Interested in how I make drawings like this one? See a tutorial here: [link]

I think the whiskers and the reflections on the marbles are my favorite part of this one!

Yeah, mine, too! The marbles were very fun to draw. The reflections were done with a gel pen.

I just wanted to add some critique if you don't mind. :)
I think with the highlights on the marbles, it would have looked better if you softened the edges between the white and color instead of outlining it. I also think that with such strong highlights on the marbles, the light source on the rest of your drawing needs to be clear, such as on the cat. If you would have highlighted his fur on his right side to match the lighting on the marbles, I think it would have made the piece much more cohesive. Or actually if you would have changed the light source completely to the left side, I think that would have been beneficial to your drawing because then the light would have been shining on the cat's face, creating a great atmosphere and focal point. Just don't forget that when you add a strong light source, the shadows and cast shadows get darker!
But overall I really love the drawing! The cat is adorable and the colors are brilliant!
I hope you don't mind my input and I hope I helped! :aww:

Heya~

First of all, let me begin by saying I really like this piece, the idea of it. The whole composition is sweet and you have established that sweetness here. How about I begin from the back and move forward. The watercolour background looks beautiful; the paleness of it sets a nice scene for the main subject of the piece, and is in no way distracting. Then there are the marbles. I just love them. They seem perhaps to me, a little large, but they are exacting in that they look just like marbles as intended and you managed to give them a glimmer and a shine that says there is a definite light source up above. That is great. They look amazing.


Now to the kitty. He/she looks very sweet, and playful. There is an expression about him that is both sweet and impish; well done! The only advice I would give for him is to keep practicing. Coloured pencils are not learned over night, nor is anatomy (nor any other aspect that one must capture) So just keep practicing; you show such extreme promise and talent here. I think you should look at some of the really popular established pencil artists here on dA and look at their work from say, 3 years ago... oh how far they have come!! I believe you are in those ranks if you just practice. You obviously have the passion for it.
:nod:

Overall, it is a lovely piece, with great depth of perception, and supreme expression. Nicely done!!
