cat charcoals

Here are the charcoals for the next animal in that series.  This cat is going to be the ship’s cook so I wanted a little less formality to the clothing.  I’ll probably stain it up with some food as well.  Played around with some color studies today so depending on my workload, I may get to painting it tonight.  I think this one makes 8, so only 18 more to go and the book is done!  Hooray!  (I’m also plugging away on another Ruby June book page so there is that as well to interfere with my animal painting productivity.)

My daughter was not pleased that I had started mocking up a comp of a vulture before working on the cat.  Her response to finding out I was finally working on her cat was, “Now start on a dog.”  Ah, to be 4 years old.
