I'm so jalous of the way you draw. The colours are amazing. The detail is stunning.

I'm wondering how much time you've spend on this piece? And I would like to see a work in progress

Thanks so much for the compliment.  I never really keep track of how long a portrait takes but colored pencil is a slow medium so it does take a while.  I am getting faster though as I gain experience and learn which colors work with which.  Here is a link to the Wetcanvas art forum where I posted a WIP of this one some time ago.  Hope you enjoy it.  Thanks.

incredible how realistic it looks!
What I appreciate the most of this picutre are two things:
The incredible detail - so perfect (I am just freaking out at details :) )
And the difference you worked out between the structure of the fur and the eyes which look so realistic
GREAT ART!

I'm sure it did! How long have you been working with Prismacolor?

I started out working strickly with graphite but wanted to switch to color and since I already was familiar with pencil work I decide to try colored pencils. This was back about 10 years ago. I only had cheap Laurentian pencils to start but then gradually bought Prismacolor pencils and have used them since. At the time Prismacolor was the only cp that I had heard about but now there are a variety of cp's to choose from I like the Prismas because of their soft waxy feel and they work great for my style.
