My first realistic pencil drawing in nearly six months! Since my last drawing I stepped back from everything and asked myself. “What do I really want out of life?” The answer – to start my Transition. I guess this is where the name for this drawing came from. I named it, Eyes on the Prize. I like his intense look, as if he knows what he wants, and he’s going to get it no matter what is in his path … maybe he’s thinking about becoming a female cat :)

He took me two weeks to finish. I started the drawing when the date was confirmed for the Plymouth Arts Club Summer Exhibition. I wanted a new drawing to exhibit so I got my head down and focused. While the black background required a lot of patience, it reminded me how rewarding doing a realistic drawing is!
