How? I mean how is this even humanly possible? How also does the crap that sells in art museums get hung on walls, and this is free on a message board. This is amazing. I would say I am speechless, but I just said words, so, I would be lying, but wow!

Do you copy from photos or life? Or do they come from your head?

That is awesome! You've managed to capture a lot of personality on that face and the detail is simply stunning! You just tell a different kind of story, Abby, one without words. :)

I wasn't sure what I was expecting when I clicked on this post but I am glad I did. It sure surprised me to see a drawing so stunning. I am also being a little biased as I am a cat lover.

Thanks for all the lovely comments! I draw mainly from photos but also sometimes from life and I've even done a couple from imagination. This one is from a photo of my son's girlfriend's cat, and I should actually be getting paid for it which is unusual! I wanted to do it in colour but they are mad about black & white photos and wanted it done in plain old graphite.

Oh God now you've said that escorial I will never look at it again without thinking 'dead moggy!!' It was alive when the ref photo was taken though, and is still alive now but getting on a bit :)

Yes, it is :) I wanted an avatar that reflects who I am, what I do. That picture pretty much sums it up.

Beautiful Abby and you capture personality too, much talent you have.

I have to add the depth and background very cool.

You know i looked at it once and though. "nice picture" had to look at it again so see that it was in fact painted. That's amazing. how long dose it take to make something like that?

Abby
July 30th, 2014, 07:24 PM
Thanks! It's actually pencil and it took a couple of days to do :)

Don't even understand how it's humanly possible to draw like that. Brilliant.

Abby

I wish I could give that picture more than one like. C'est magnifique. Would that I had a fraction of your talent. Love it.

This... was my exact reaction. This is beautiful - well done! :')

Wow, this only took you a few days to do? How many hours? Very nice.

Abby
August 20th, 2014, 04:36 PM
Thanks! I don't know how many hours but probably quite a few. I find I work quite quickly in graphite though compared to other mediums, must do some more! :)

If you were to interview for an artist's job somewhere and they said "show me your portfolio", all you would have to do is to show them this drawing. You are a gifted artist. I had to look twice to see it wasn't a photograph.

Abby

Thanks Lokerola :)

That looks amazing. The shading is spectacular, and the depth in the details are awesome! I also love how one eye is slight open, something cats do often.

Im curious, what did you use to draw this? Pencil and/or tablet?

Abby
August 26th, 2014, 12:59 PM
Thanks! It's just regular graphite pencil, I have got a tablet but haven't worked out how to use it yet!
