Many thanks to Ruby's crazy cat lady mom! I'm glad you liked it, Kathy. Yes, now she can be seen all over the world. lol. I'm so glad it brought a smile to your face. I really enjoyed drawing her and all those unusual colors she has. She's a beautiful little kitty. I appreciate your kind words my friend.
Hi Kathy, thanks my friend for your wonderful comment on my tiger pastel and the like too. I really appreciate it. My son seems to like to collect any and all of my tiger pastels that I do. Recently I did 2 of them..this one and one I haven't yet uploaded. They were tough to do if you've never drawn them before, but the more you draw them the better you get and faster too. I'm glad you like this one. He was fun to draw and I'd like to do more of them.
Kathy, I notice she has some white around her mouth/nose and chin. Is that orange/white on her chest? I love the look in her eyes just as the photo shows them with that slight shadow in them. Very cool. Yes, I love her markings too. Usually I just draw what I see...that's the only way I know how to do it especially when I have just one photo and I've never seen her personally. I think she's been fun to draw and I'm going to get started soon. Thanks for letting me use the photo of her. She's adorable.
Thanks kathy for your comments on my cat in a freezer . The freezer was an AAA+ freezer which came with the highest insulation level in the UK it was that old when my dad had one of his helpful moment with trying to fe I've it thay didnt often go well. I know I couldn't have built her a better insulated house without spending a lot of money. There were cat sized holes on each level you can make it out on the middle floor at the back. So she could move about and I had a selection on bulbs that I used heat and light that kept it nice and toasty for her the biggest issue was having a bulb that didnt make it to hot inside She had just given up at our house but my son taking her on has given her a new lease of life. we were sad to let her go but it was for her best intrest.
