For some reason I just can’t draw cats. I don’t really know why. It’s like I have a mental block or something. I mean maybe I just need more practice but I seem to be able to get much better likenesses with pretty much any other animal I try to draw. Then when I try to draw a cat it just doesn’t work out the way I expect it to. I suppose it could just be another matter of setting my expectations too high when it’s an animal I’m more fond of and familiar with.
Anyway, this is my latest attempt at drawing a cat. Despite the fact that I have two perfectly viable live specimens downstairs this one was still drawn from a photo. That’s mainly just because I didn’t have anything in particular in mind to draw. If I had set out to draw a cat I probably would have chosen one of mine. As it was I just went for another random Something To Draw photo and the first one to catch my eye happened to be of a cat. It was submitted by Sanna Pudas and trust me, I didn’t do it any justice at all.
