I drew this for my five-year-old, and also to see if hair technique translates to fur. The conclusion: fur is harder, but in some ways a bit more forgiving.

Thank you! Glad you liked. Little kittens are so sweet. It almost (but not quite) makes me wish I hadn't had my kitties fixed.

Oh, thanks. Yeah, I think you're right -- I didn't do a global adjustment of the shading on this one, and it must show. I usually go back over a drawing and match tones across the drawing, but this time I was a little worried about screwing up the fur, so I didn't do it.

I'm also not happy with the mouth, so I may go back and work some more on it. Thanks for the concrit, it's really helpful!
