I'm told Mikey is a bit of a badass. He has a wonkey jaw and white eye from when he was hit by a car and he's still going strong! His portrait was commissioned by my client as a leaving present for their colleague (Mikey's human). Aint he gorgeous?
Created using pastels and white charcoal on pastel paper, a4.

Nod Commissions are open! :happybounce:

What a beautiful kitty!!  And your portrait is so lovely - I love the effect of the pastels (and I'm terrible with them myself).  His fur looks like I could just reach out and pet it.  :love:

Thanks Murasaki! I used to hate using them but over time I've come to love them and the effect you can get

The effect is just gorgeous.  I've a local friend who does equine portraits in pastels and they look like paintings by the old masters.

Sounds incredible! There's a reason they call pastel drawing 'painting'. They blend like paints
