A couple months ago I had that sudden urge to pick up a pencil and draw something. Even though I do a lot of crafts, I actually rarely sketch. A detailed sketch is usually quite time consuming and – having a rather short attention span – I get bored halfway through and drop the drawing unfinished. Nevertheless, I felt the desire to draw, for the first time in a couple of years, and I couldn’t resist. Here’s the process, step by step!
Before we dive into it though, here is my gorgeous model. Meet Rupert, my beloved baby – a (now) 9-month-old half Bengal, half British Shorthair kitten.
And before anyone thinks I didn’t get bored this time and finished the whole drawing straight away – I didn’t. I started drawing in September and finished in February. Ooof.
…and done! Phew.
Naturally, I’m not a professional by any means. That being said, I’m pretty satisfied with the result. Not too bad for a lazy artist-wannabe picking up a pencil once every few years, ha! A frame is all ready and the picture is going on a wall. And I’ve satisfied the need for pencil drawing for a long time now. 😉
