the eyes are extraordinarily well done, nice drawing (I agree about the fur patch by the nose though)
Sweetcell (Jul 25, 2006)
So cute. The nose patch just needs to be swept towards the back a bit. The mouth seems off but it's so.... I lost my first cat weeks ago and have only began to get over it so it's great to see this. I definately have to paint her picture soon.

OH MY GOD. It looks EXACTLY like a kitten I just gave to the neighbor girl. ;; Exactly, to the T. The markings on the face are so perfect.

michaeleverett (Dec 19, 2005)
I've looked thru your gallery.Fantastic work!But this one is incredible,and for some strange reason the colors seem to trigger a past memory that I can't put my finger on.Your work is beyond that of a beginner.You have a gift!!!!

XD reference is a 'Michelle Tumes' album cover, however, it looks nothing like her ._.
Yeyes, I do plan on doing one without a reference.. someday... but for now, I can't even get it to look like the people I"m drawing XD

I like it.. not fond of the hair though... and I definitely need more clothes practice.
I like her nose better than the last, though.
And, GASP, a hand-like appendage.. possibly a hand...

davincipoppalag (Aug 8, 2005)
You're doin great with these.. I think the hair is well done, too.
Shoebox (Aug 8, 2005)
thank'ee you two *nods* most kind n.n

Feels really good to be branching out finally ^^;
Childlike_Vampire (Aug 9, 2005)
This is really pretty. I love the soft colors, the hair, and the hands especially. The eyes are really pretty too, nice and sharp against all the soft.

Eh.. well, I'm the first to admit it; I'm not the greatest at realism, but it's a start, I suppose... making good time, at any rate XD I"m jsut sick of being limited to anime and anime-ish stuff...
Unfortunately, untalented me has a reference.
Favorite part; Eyes.

Naturally this is free to be moved, I just thought it might be nice to have a larger canvas *nods*

Well, for better orworse, there it is.. I think I"m finished with it.. it's not so bad...

davincipoppalag (Aug 7, 2005)
Lol I meant,, did you see any people or faces in my gallery? NO ..because..I suck at them..YOU don't though,, I think you will be one of the best doing them after a few more
emmamommalag (Aug 7, 2005)
This is very nice. I like the softness of the hair.
Xodiak (Aug 7, 2005)
