howdy- i saw you the other day- on that cafe or creative room- i saw you somewhere- you like writing dont you- write novels and that
these kittens are cute- but they dont stay stil for long do they? they stay still for hours but when you try and draw them ive noticed they start moving
i think they do it deliberately

i read a bit of your blog as you included th links
how about miniatures for your sketch book?
and how about this- a theme every week? jjust something to help you along-
make them big themes- such as buildings,
steam (steam engines/trains)
urban city scapes
accidental still lifes- that is still lifes that you come accross and are not arranged
run out of ideas now- but you get the jist

ill read your blog and boost you on- its a challenge i woldnt take on thats for sure

was going to do something similar and draw as many buildings in my home town which has lots of buildings- but the idea is as far as i got

Great work, Robert, as always! I really like the one in the lower left corner. Such timid, wide eyes.

Robert, these are very good...you really are good at capturing their natural poses...I can't do that with cats or dogs...they end up glaring at me and leaving in a huff...:rolleyes:

I've seen my guys show all those poses. :) The only suggestion I would make is when drawing whiskers, make some cross and not fan out in parallel lines.
