March 13, 2013 sketch

Long time ago I was asked for a commission of a black cat, but the reference photo provided consisted mostly of beautiful amber eyes and some very dark blobs that suggested the cat surely was somewhere there in the almost black surrounding. I could not even guess the rest of his face, so asked for a better photo and never heard back. But what was not good enough for a commission once, could work for my own amusement. This is a different cat, and I am not sure how so much of it besides the eyes got into the sketch. It was not planned for.

  1. I like it. The eyes draw me in and there is the suggestion of a cat – and plenty of mystery remains.

  2. Thanks, Katherine. Cats are a mystery even in a broad daylight, aren’t they? 🙂
