Eyes of a Calico by anniecanjump Eyes of a Calico by anniecanjump
8x10 on 110 lb. paper done with Prismacolor colored pencils.

I never get tired of painting cat portraits because they have such wonderful eyes. This calico kitty was done from a ref. pic from Wetcanvas.

You are welcome :) By the way, when I saw your kitten drawings for a first time, I finally decided that it is time for me to try to draw kittens as well :) You were the last drop of inspiration that I needed :) Thank you for being such a great artist!:)

Pretty soon I will upload some sketches :)

That is wonderful. I think I enjoy doing the cats more than anything, although I am a dog person......lol.... but the cats have such expression and look that they make wonderful subjects. Good luck with your new sketches. I will watch for them.

Im truly fucking amazed (though I don't think that's a calico...then again, the fuck do I know?) anyways
I can't stand colored pencil... I feel like a child with crayons really. I can't do it at all... I've done just graphite pencils. I can kinda do that but yeah. Colored pencils don't like me

Therefore I applaud you sir or ma'am. this is amazing

This is lovely! How long does a Prismacolor portrait usually take you, if you don't mind me asking?
Reply
:iconanniecanjump:
anniecanjump Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2012
Thanks. You know, I have never really timed myself to see how long it takes, although colored pencils are a slow medium and with the detail that I strive to get, it takes a while. I would guess a couple weeks for one like this and this size. And of course I have life to live in between.... you know housework, animal husbandry, etc......and I don't mind you asking at all. I m happy to help anyone interested in colored pencil art.
