Catnap


Quick sketch done on my Cintiq 21ux of my Maine Coon Oberon. He looks so comfortable when he snoozes that it's hard not to join him in a mid afternoon nap!

How do you like working on a Cintiq (vs. an Intuos or similar tablet?)

My cat Tonks (Teddy, not Nymphadora) sleeps just like that too... I think you captured it perfectly!

I do really like my Cintiq though I'm not yet as comfortable with it as I am with traditional materials. Still, it does feel much more natural to me that using the usual Wacom tablets.

Ray Lederer is selling his for around $1,700.00 right now. A steal! ;-)

i have an artist that comes to my life drawing class that draws and paints on wallpaper books she makes herself. this reminds me of that a lot.

looks great.

This has such expression, Jen. Wonderful.

Beautiful work. You certainly seem like you're "comfortable" with the Cintiq. (could've fooled me)

There's real character in this sketch, which is so much more important to my way of thinking than slick rendering or flashy technique. (though the technique is there , too) .
