Thought it was time the cats had an airing!
This is Mika, a friend's amazingly friendly and beautiful cat. He didn't mind being out in the snow, for some odd reason.
Watercolour.

I'm typically more of a fan of realism, but this is really nice! The missing jawline bothered me a little at first, but the more I look at it the more I like the way you've left it out, to better show the whole 'blending in' of the fluffy white fur.

It's so simple, but so pretty!

Aww, very nice watercoloring and did you do this, Ann? The style of this rendering also looks quite Asian like how it'd be drawn in Japanese manga. Very nice!

Thank you intoxxication, Jedikeet and shanebudgie! I really appreciate your comments.
Yes, I painted it--seems I have inadvertently cropped the signature during transfer to Photobucket. Interesting about the manga reference. Not at all intentional; I was just trying to get the fur to appear like something approaching the real thing--a thick, featherlight silvery grey cloud.

That's nice Ann! I like how you did the crisp black and white outlines after the watercolor. I love seeing the different styles of artwork here on the forum.

Thank you Julie! This is a style I like to use a lot. It seems to go with soft furry subjects, to suggest rather than state more strongly. I should have said watercolor and pen to be more accurate.
Individual styles are forever interesting aren't they?

Hi Spangle--Think this it it! (Unless you mean a forum completely dedicated to artwork rather than part of this budgie group? There are loads of those out there!)
