CAT ‘GIVE ME A TICKLE’
I was on DeviantArt looking for Cat photos, when I came across this cat by DeviantArt member SylvesterST. I immediately had an urge to draw him! Drawing his face was fun, and his fur, but I ran into a few problems with the background. I wanted to try and create the out of focus look that was in the photo, but I couldn’t work out how to do it. I tried using these pure graphite sticks with a tissue to blend it all, but all I ended up with was a big dirty mess lol
I then decided to erase large areas of it, but I was never able to restore the white of the paper and it turned into a bit of a shambles. So the best thing about this drawing is, I learnt how not to do backgrounds :) Next time I’ll try another way!
