EDM Challenge #44 - An Animal



(click to enlarge)
It seems that lately, one of the my main purposes in life is to be a cat pillow to my 2 cats. But I am okay with that! I had to have my drawing stuff nearby in order to draw this, because once one (or both) of the cats are settled, I have a hard time disturbing them, so I won't move for a while. Typical cat household - the cats are really the rulers!
I did this with watercolor pencils in my moleskine sketchbook.

Love your kitty! S/he looks so cozy. I also live in a two-cat household. They do rule the place - until the Sheltie starts barking and herding. Then they just sit under a chair and stare at him til he gives it up.

Love your cat-drawing. No other than cats can look so totally relaxed... You managed to capture it perfectly!

I can understand completely your relationship with your kitties. Mine actually allows me live in her house with complete grace. I hope that your cat enjoys your portrait of her as much as I have.

This is lovely - you've captured that sense of entitlement that somehow makes cats so appealing. A friend of ours always says "for my dog, I'm a god, for my cat I'm the housekeeper."

That is one comfy cat! You've captured her (him?) beautifully.
