Sphynx cat studies

Two paper sheets full of sketches I did during my hiatus.

I have a huge fascination for sphynx cats. It's hard to find photography that does them justice, but luckily I could find excellent material here on DeviantArt when Google image couldn't give me enough examples.

Had a lot of fun drawing these sketches, though I didn't quite manage to capture that mystical essence of sphynx cats that inspires me. Need more practice.

Sphynxes are awesome, if I was going to chase a particular breed of cat I'd want one of these, sadly the rest of my family aside from the youngest isn't too keen on them.  Love the different expressions each sketchy has, and the one with the kittens.  How cute are sphynx kittens?!

I think that you've managed to capture their essence on some of the sketches. :)
The lowest left one clearly has essence of sphynx.
Cats are fun because of all of the poses and things they usually gets into. 
How does one sleep curled up at ones back and somehow streched out in a way that a human would wake with a sleeping arm or worse and all is just... fine?

Thank you! :aww:
Do you mean the fullbody sitting sketch?

Haha, cats are ridiculously flexible, I don't know how their anatomy allows this. I saw this funny comic focusing on it, and I will always remember it.

Yes, the fullbody sitting sketch. And some of the headshots also have a good amount.

Is it fun or annoying to draw all the skin wrinkles?

That comic is so correct in how cats are in general. XD
This is the easy version off a cats odd sleeping position: HERE and it can be added to with pillows and other things in the way.

It's... interesting to draw the wrinkles, actually. The tough part is to get them right in the beginning. xD But it's fun when you figure it out.

The link doesn't work. D:

Spinx are odd but yet interesting cats to look at.

Exactly. I understand it if people find them ugly, but I find them interesting for that reason. Also, their personalities are precious. They love cuddling and learn things fast.

My favorite thing about them is that when they curl up into a ball, they look like a smooth potato.
