Day 243 of my 366 daily art project! A lot more are on the way! Please read all about my project and charity below and in my journal.

As the lovely photographer titled, "The Perfect Model".

Special thanks to *thrumyeye for the lovely photo! [link]

>>Created with charcoal and chalk and highlighted with acrylic paint on 2.5x3.5 ACEO gray 500 series Strathmore charcoal paper. About 3.5 hours.

-----------------

♥ For every day of 2012, I will be drawing one ACEO sketch card. Every single one will be for sale - ALL proceeds to be donated to charity at the end of 2012.

My charity of choice is a local foundation called Alternatives to Violence, who is currently raising money to build a safehouse. This safehouse will provide a secure shelter to men, women and children who have recently escaped physical and sexual abuse.

With the safehouse, 312 individuals every year will receive crisis intervention, counseling, safety planning, advocacy and shelter.

Together, through art, we can help make a difference.

♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥
If you love this piece and the safehouse project, you can see the card to purchase at Etsy for $11 + shipping: [link]

My First Reaction was -> "HAHA" :D
So the Original title shud have been..
" The Perfect FUNNY Model" :D
BTW,, u have OUTDONE the photograph in drawing those mezmoriz-ing-ly shiny parabolic eyez.

I see that u have kept the FOCUS all uniform over the cat than what it is i the ref. and that was good, coz that gve u room to play with the original texture.

I think whiskers are too thick(as being chalk. may be white penci/penl wud have done the trick)
BTW,,REF has some amazing whiskers with perfect focus and amazing play of shadows n tones.

and "Philtrum" cud have been more detailed, those tiny fur things gives a real soft feel. :)

and yeah, that cushion thing under her head is another improvement,whihc is kinda ambiguous in the ref. giving feel of nice -playful-pet-cat " :)

Cheerz!

Nice details. I like its expression. And the eyes. I thought that was done in pastel until I read the description.
