We recently had a litter of kittens, and being inspired by life, we brought the camera to the event. Momma Mika was very accommodating and this is the first of I hope a few that I'll be drawing of the kittens. As is, this is my first animal portrait as well! I hope you enjoy it, its been a pleasure to draw.

Please do check out my progression on this piece, here:

The original photo reference is also found there.

cbordin added a follow up photo of this kitten three weeks after birth here!

I commented the article, but I wanted to say thank you again. Just including this piece in your news article gave it a rebirth of exposure.

Thank you!

Really? I'm soooo glad! I though the news article was quite a failure because it doesn't have many faves
(I'm not one of the popular people on dA)

Surely you are jesting! I really enjoy your work. I rarely fav news articles, so maybe many are just like me?
