Maine Coon by WitchiArt Maine Coon by WitchiArt
This is my first drawing ever of a cat.
I got a drafting film *Streichelweich had sent some days ago. That's so sweet, thank you Tina! :blowkiss:

I draw it with colored pencils and scan it with a colored background, that's the reason why the whiskers looks so extreme white.
I upload the drawing with white background to my scraps [link] by that you see it's not so white like it show.


Maybe I surpise you with a cat drawing, I bet a lot of you thought my next one will be again a human portrait. :giggle:

It was really fun to draw and I enjoy it, maybe it's not perfect. So if there any cat drawer who see some defaults please let me know!

Danke schön! Das Fell bekommt man nur mit Zeichenfolie so hin, mit normalem Papier wird das schwieriger.

Oh, wow!!! :heart::heart: I LOVE Maine Coon cats!! They're the sweetest-natured, smartest and most personable cats I've ever known, and this is just a perfect portrait of one! :clap::clap: Such lush work on the fur--there are so many colors in their coats, it must've taken every pencil in the box! The eyes are amazing (and these kitties really LOOK at you, just like this: they're the only cats I know that can win a staredown contest with a human! lol!)--so REAL! Gorgeous, gorgeous work! :clap::clap:

I really like Maine Coons too, but I never have one. Maybe one day I'll have one, I love big cats!

"Maybe one day I'll have one, I love big cats!"

And they ARE big! Long-limbed, long-bodied--so pretty! They take up your whole lap when they get settled there, and they're heavy to hold--but they're very affectionate and personable, and make very good companions! :D I LOVE this piece! :heart:

Thank you so much! I never heard of drafting film before, this was my first try. This is a drawing film you can buy similar to the film an architectural draftsman use.

Wow! Beautiful cat, Marion! The fur looks so soft and very realistic. Love the colors especially! I'm more of a dog person, but I know a proud looking cat when I see one. ;)

Thank you dear! It was really fun to do but a lot of work to draw all fur and the colors looks very different as to draw on paper.

I can imagine! I was just "inspecting" the fur and all your pencil strokes just blend together so gently and seamlessly. I can imagine it took you a while to build it all up to look full and soft, and I'm still amazed at the outcome. I wish I could draw animals as well, but I suck at fur. :D Maybe you've inspired me to try it one day though. It's kind of sad to have dogs and be able to draw, but not be able to draw fur. :blush:
