Drawing of JoeJoeBoy - **Update - now finished **

Well I am at it again, here is a work in progress of a very beautiful cat called JoeJoeBoy who is owned by a very nice lady called Vicky. I haven't finished this yet, but I am hoping to by the weekend and then I am going to finish off Buddy and do another picture of Nya for Vanillasugar. Then that will be two requests completed

Natalie,

I spend a lot of time checking my references (even measuring them if I have to) to make sure all of the features are in the correct place.

It is like...check...check and then check again

I see. I can get the outline pretty good if it is a profile shot but if it is straight on then I dont do to good.
I cant wait to see when you are finished with this one!

I really like this one, think it is one of your best.

I don't know how you get through them so fast.

What are you using this time? is it colouring pencils????

Hi Shivvy,

Thanks

Yes this one is coloured pencils, (Derwent and Faber Castell) I think I am going to stick to using them for the time being, I have a picture that I want to do in pastels so I will try again with those and see how I get on.

Shivvy,

Yes my pencils are watersoluble, although I wouldn't put water on them as I don't think my paper would cope with it very well

They are Faber Castell Colour Grip 2001 (purchased at WH Smith for about £7 for 24) also I just Derwent Start Watercolour (£3.99 from WH Smith for 24) and I have also got some WH Smith 24 watercolour pencils which cost £4.99. The Faber's I adore but the white and black in the Derwents are very good, they really grip the paper well.

Another update

Still got loads to do as yet but it is getting there I was very nervous about the black on the left had side but I am glad I did it now as I think it is very effective
