2013, Sat 19 Jan. My friend from my National Service days, Kenneth, asked me to draw his cats (he has two, I discovered). I looked up his FB album. Was drawn to a photo where his arm was draped over his cat. The cat had this cute contented look on its face. I asked Kenneth what it’s name was. Hope you like this rendition of “J.J.”, Kenneth. #365sketches
How it was done
1. Selected this image from Kenneth’s album. It was grainy and taken in low light. But there’s enough details to make a sketch. I liked that contented look on his cat’s face. Did a quick visual study and felt I could produce something reasonable.
5. Majority of the time was spent detailing the sketch. Erased the excess brush strokes, lightened the outlines, accentuated highlights. At one point, I realised I’d sketched the body fatter than it was. Trimmed it down with an Eraser tool (lower opacity setting to get a softer look).
