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!

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 :)
