Cute kitten, drawn on April 30, 2010

30 Apr

After doing all these realistic sketches of an Abyssinian cat, I decided to make something special on the day we Dutch celebrate our freedom in the Kingdom of the Netherlands, under the rule of Queen Beatrix, commonly referred to as Queen’s Day (Koninginnedag in Dutch).

This sketch is based on a reference photo in 3/4 perspective view, which meant I had to recreate the face from scratch. Besides that, she has a really wild hairdo, blond, which is extremely time consuming to draw.

Needless to say that I needed more time than the usual 30 minutes, double that time at least.

Warm-up sketch for April 22, 2010

22 Apr

I did another daily recording of my warm-up sketch, this time on my Livestream channel Draw, draw, draw! (Ustream was unavailable when I wanted to record).

Yesterday’s cartoon sketch, which I blue-lined on the computer, was inked and (while recording) dropped on the floor by accident. Still, I finished the inking, while smudging the already smudged drawing even further, because, even after 15 minutes the ink from the Pentel Color Brush pen wasn’t dry.

This cartoon drawing came out of my imagination. Tomorrow I will ink it, also live on Ustream.

Third attempt at getting this pose of a kitten right. I took it slow and considerate, but still got it wrong. Ah well, there’s always a next time, and practice makes perfect.
