Sunlit Fur by crysothemis Sunlit Fur by crysothemis
This is actually a joint effort -- my Other Half took the reference photograph a few days ago. He'd noticed the way the sunlight was catching on our cat's fur, and thought it would make a cool drawing.

When I saw the photo, I had to draw it. I just loved the way the sunlight made her black fur look white, and how she still looked like herself, even though her face was entirely in shadow.

Charcoal on paper.

Thank you! Glad you liked it. I've had this one on the wall in my dining room for over a year now, and I can still stand to look at it, so I count that a win. ;)

Thank you! I'm a mushball over cats, and this one is a true sweetheart, so I'm glad I got a chance to do her portrait.

Aww, thank you! I'm still getting used to the charcoal, but it was great for drawing a black cat. :nod: I really loved the light on the ears in the reference photo, so I'm very happy you liked them. :smooch:
