Generic title is generic. Anyway, the undisputable king of FLOOF is back! This is just a simple portrait, since it's long ago that I drew cats, and especially longhaired cats.

Cat belongs to a friend of mine. His name is Tiger, and we think he's at least part Norwegian Forest cat, although not purebred. He certainly looks exactly like one!

Reference taken by myself, when he was distracted with some snacks. It made for a good photoshoot. You may or may not see him again...

Colored pencils on A4. Time spent? 15-20 hours, I think.

Marvelous work !! He looks JUST like our own late housemaster, Pandora (he got the name as a VERY fluffy kitten, so much so his sex was not determined before the name "stuck"), lord of all he surveyed for 19 years !!                           Tiger   Mark-Hallett-Allosaurus [V.1]  Arrow Left  {as they think of themselves}

Awee... He looks absolutely stunning. Always thought fluffy cats looked like they are the wisest of them all... maybe it's the whiskers that add to that though.

Thank you! And the ear tufts. Don't forget the long ear tufts.

Yes, we cannot forget the ear tufts. A wise cat always has ear tufts. XD

Great artwork. Realistic drawing with all the challenging fur. But I like the eyes and the facial expression.
