Virtual Sketch Date - Tripod the Cat


This week i had a virtual sketch date which was for me inspired by Rose on see Rose's blog here.

I asked whether i could participate in the sketch date after reading Rose's post but with everything going on in my life at the moment I wasn't sure how much i could commit to it. As suspected thing lead to another this week and i haven't had any time for art so i wasn't able to contribute the time that i would have liked, but i have managed to squeeze a little of a sketch in done on my new toy (wacom graphics tablet). I have never done cats before, i like cats but i have never owned one and many cats i have met haven't been too interested in cuddling up with a stranger so i am unfamiliar with all manners of cats i enjoyed getting this close to a cat. I think my drawing was a bit off and i mainly just freestyled with all of it, you can see a bit of the process i went through on the parts that have been uncompleted.

I hope i haven't let the other artists down but not completing it. See all that are participating in the date here: Jeanette, Rose, Jeanne, Stacy, Belinda, Jennifer, Gayle, Teresa, Katherine and Paulette. I really enjoyed this idea, i really want to do this again next time hopefully i will have a bit more time next time.

Belinda, nice work with the new wacom tablet. I've never tried one but they seem like it would be so different from using a pencil. I like your freestyle sketch.

I so envy your ability with a graphics tablet. You've got a good likeness of Tripod here and that look is perfect.

Hi Belinda,
Sorry I was off looking at one of your other blogs and didn't see this one.
I think you did a great job getting Tripod's look. Glad you found a bit of time. :)
