Valri, thanks for the fantastic images, and for hosting.
I adore cats, but in their hearts and instincts, they are still leopards and tigers. Let's say for the sake of argument that this cat has caught a plastic toy model, and is thinking "Go away dogs, it's mine and you can't have it". No pre-drawing, straight to ink in sketchpad. 8x10" (20x25 cm), 35 mins. The pen is an old Edding 1800 propen 0.1 I'd forgotten how much I liked it till now, glad it wasn't dry ;-)

This is awesome, Lauren!! Plastic toy, you say.......LOL
I could so see Marsha doing this. My dog has toys that the cat steals. Mostly the barbie doll heads. Bahahahaha
Great pen work. Hope you don't lose that old pen - it makes gorgeous stuff happen on paper!

Wonderful penmanship.

I adore cats, but in their hearts and instincts, they are still leopards and tigers. But of course! "Look at me, I'm a mighty hunter." :)

I'm sure my cat has the same attitude- "yeah, I could catch a deer, but I don't feel like it right now". The deer in our backyard just ignore her. Anyway, love the expression, and really nice inkwork!

Very neat! I like the expressions in both the cat and elk toy model faces. Good job!

Is that a Sabre tooth tiger on a dwarf elk? This made me chuckle. Great work with that pen!

This is so funny Lauren, but could see this happening with my cats as they are big boys - good use of two refs and great pen work!

The form is rendered beautifully! I find it very diffcult reference tobwork with. You have done an excellent job and with ink!

Lauren, this is really wonderful! You nailed Marsha's expression and I love how she snagged the toy elk for her own possession.
