Jarvis Portrait - Step 6

Sorry for not updating this more recently but I just haven't had the artistic urge over the past few weeks, but now I am back with a minor update!

I have started colouring in his chest area and have added more detail to his neck and muzzle.

Will keep going. Need to get this done by Christmas!

Jarvis Portrait - Step 5

Well it's coming along slowly! I managed to get something sorted out with the problem area under the ear. Its not finished with yet but I can look at it now without getting angry!

It actually looks like a full cat's head now! Am so pleased with it, and before you ask, yes I am enjoying every minute of it. Such a learning experience!

Jarvis Portrait - Step 4

Only a minor update. Getting a bit stumped with certain areas of it - the fur under the right hand side ear mostly. Just not experienced enough at drawing cats and fur in CP to know how to fix it. Hopefully inspiration will come over the weekend.

I need to get this finished soon so I can get it to Jarvis' mum before Christmas!

Jarvis Portrait - Step 3

Only managed to do a little more on this recently. Have reached a bit of an impass with it that makes my head hurt, but I'm sure inspiration will come soon.

About 4 or 5 hours now.

Jarvis Portrait - Step 2

I did about 2 more hours on this last night, and actually started on the fur. It's so hard but I am pleased with how it's going.

I think his eyes are now mostly finished. I think I need to add some more blue to them or something but I managed to correct the over greenness of them!

Jarvis Portrait - Step 1

I have finally gotten around to starting the portrait of a friend's cat, Jarvis, and it is going pretty well so far. The only problem I've encountered is that I've made his eyes too green already! Will definately have to sort that out ASAP!!

Odd One Out ACEO - Update

After seeking advice from the lovely people at WetCanvas, here's an update on my pumpkin ACEO.

I think it looks a lot better, but it still doesn't seem finished to me. Not sure what to do with it now. Hmmm...
