That's a beautiful portrait -- I love the eyes and the white 'bib'. My cat has the same kind of 'bib' and it gets that same wooly-kink look to it. I love the detail in the coloration of the cat too, very lovely.

Thank you Chammi!
Thanks Karen. I wouldn't say it's purrfect but I appreciate the compliment :)
Thank you KarenESP :)
Thank you Barb! The eyes are the windows to their souls so I'm glad I was able to capture that!
Thank you FromtheDeep for your comments! I'm really glad you like it :)

I messed with the nose after someone over in the Pastel forum pointed it out.
Don't know if I helped it or hurt it though :lol:
C&C's welcomed!

That is lovely, Peggy. Wonderful work on the long fur. It isn't easy, I know and also have some great colours in the shadows. Love it.
