Yellow Eyes

Here is an ink drawing of a cat that is up for adoption with the ASPCA. A local nonprofit asked selected artists to create a portrait of an animal available for adoption. Whomever adopts this gray and white feline will also get a portrait of the same animal. Here I drew the cat in ink, using Micron black pen. I used Prismacolor colored pencils to add color to the eyes. I may add a bit more ink for detail,but overall this piece is done and it needs to get to the gallery to be in display with the other works. Enjoy!

Cat Eyes in Ballpoint (WIP)

I’ve been sort of into ballpoint pen art lately, and it’s sort of funny, but I remember the typical Bic being the go-to artist utensil all through grade school.  I probably have hundreds of drawings and notebook covers displaying my artistic doodles in black and blue ink.  So, I did some research about the best ballpoint pens, and decided to to try out the Zebra F-301 black ballpoint (average cost at the local Walmart for a 2-pack is just under $4).  I like the pen, but the ink balls up sometimes and then transfers to the drawing, which bugs me.  On the other hand, I think it gives the drawing character too.

So, this is what I’ve drawn so far.  I used a copy write free image from www.pixabay.com.  I can see errors in the layout, but I’m sticking with it 🙂
