This is just, well, amazing.

I love graphite,
But it always turns out so messy when I use it.

This picture really shows personality.
Great work.


I think that your drawing is really good. How do you not smudge that unintetionaly? The first time a saw that i thought it was a picture. I wish I could draw like that but i don't have the patience. You have real talent. Keep practising and enjoying your art, I know i will.

thank you so much! Yeah it does get a little tricky with the smudging situation, but I usually start shading from left to right (since I'm a righty) in order to avoid smudging, occasionally it does happen but thats where the eraser comes in handy!


I like the attention to the lighting and shading you gave to the kitteh. It looks very clean, very clear, that even the whiskers are easy to tell apart from the whole of the image. My suggestion to you would be to study the features of cats and leopards, or whatever your subject is. Study the shapes they're composed of, their skull shape, which shapes to use to compose the heads, and so on. The more you understand how something works, the more beautifully it will appear. So while you have made the image extremely clear, and even though you most likely used a photo reference for this, you would be surprised how just understanding your subject better would make this pretty kitteh stand out even more. Even if you may never do another feline again, studying a thing's structure and its shapes goes a long way.

Good luck on future artworks!

ReneeYV responds:

Thanks for the advice! Yeah I think I will start studying certain things that I would like to pursue in such as science and medical drawings and studying animals definitely falls under that category, and since big cats are my favorite I will devote a lot of time to studying all sorts of them.
