A fantastic looking big, strong cat. Just finished although I might do a bit more work to the top of his head tomorrow in daylight.
On the whole really pleased with how this one went.

Lovely soft colours. Can I ask which brand of pastels you use, and do you use pencils as well as sticks? I use Derwent pastel pencils in conjunction with my sticks and I'm not fond of them, in particular I'm looking at the lovely smooth strokes of the white whiskers and I don't think my white pastel pencil would be able to cope with that on top of other layers of colour! The Derwent pastel pencils are slightly too hard for my liking.

Thanks Amanda :) I used to use pencils a lot more, but now hardly use them at all, especially on the bigger ones like this. I use a pastel pencil in my initial stages, mainly around the eyes and nose. Like you I agree they are not great for whiskers over layers of pastel. I use rembrandts usually for the whiskers or daler rowney hard pastels(which are not hard at all) I like to break the pastel so I have an extra sharp edge. I like to do them in one sweeping action, it can be quite tense at that moment and hope I don't ruin the whole thing.
My favourites for backgrounds are Manet and unison. Rembrandts, daler rowney (hard and soft). Sometimes conte hard pastels for detail with certain coat textures and whiskers. Hope this is helpful, I'm learning all the time and I am loving it here on deviant art, so many great artists, I'm always inspired to push myself to do better, because no matter how good you are there is always someone else out there who is better :)

Thank you, I have no secrets... Apart from the velour it is a wonderful medium for fur. It takes a bit of getting used to but stick with it. I have been using it for two years now non stop and this I think is my best piece to date :)
