this is a wonderful drawing. My only comment would be that I'd like to see more contrast and your shadows deepened o bring out the cat more.
If you'd like I can show you by using my Paint program.
Keep up the good work!

Thank you all for your comments.
Arlene, I want to see your improvements in my drawing, I'm sure it will be really instructive for me. Thanks for your offer!!

Nice Kitty, please stay away from my little mouse.
I also am waiting Arlene's picture. As you said it will be a good learning exp.

Hector could you send me a jpeg of the image. When I try to copy/paste as is now, I just get it as an attachment and it doesn't download as a picture.
I'm computer dumb so don't know what else to do. My email is listed below, and I'll be happy to show what I mean. :)

Don't be afraid to use color. Using local color is nice, but try something out of the ordinary. I like the cat drawing too. I think it needs more layers upon layers. Keep up the good work.

Your kitty has been done well, his eyes especially pop out at me :)
I put it in gray scale to show the values:
Figure out what is your focal point, the most important thing in the picture, and put your darkest dark and lightest light, sharp edges, brightest color there.
The rest of the picture could have softer edges, less contrast, more muted color.
I hope this helps! Don't be afraid of the darks!

Please forgive me for taking so long to reply and show u my ideas. Had a show, was out of town...etc.
What I've done is darken everything, and at the same time kept the highlights on the cat almost white.
i made the stones in the background more in keeping with the rest of the colors, instead of making them so dark. Now IMHO, I feel the cat really stands out.
