Drawing a cat, part 13

27 Jun

I saw a nice British Shorthair cat on the cover of a Dutch cat fanciers magazine, which I use as an example for the next drawing. I draw the first rough sketch in blue pencil, the white patches in red pencil and drew the final rough sketch with a rollerball pen.

After importing the scan into GIMP, I did all kinds of digital manipulation to enable me to make the next flattened image.

Creating the fill for the cat was a lot of work, as the rollerball pen drawing wasn’t closed, because of the white whisker hairs running though it. I had to do the outline of the fill manually (of course, on a separate layer).

That is all.
