I have a cat, Samson. He doesn’t get sketched often because he never stays home.
But last week, he got into a fight with someone (we’re not sure: another cat, a raccoon, a possum?) and he came home pretty badly hurt. A trip to the Pet ER and he was home with what I was told was NOT a cone, but an “Elizabethan Collar“.
I wish I had sketched more of him in that collar, this one-minute sketch is all I have.
He’s still home, but the collar is off. I’m kinda short on sketching time just now so I’ve switched to a super-small book, hoping to get a bit of sketching done everyday.
My kids supply me with random information, most of it utterly useless. But something they told me last week really stayed with me. Cat are not solid, they’re a slow-moving liquid, they take the shape of where they are. I googled that, and apparently it’s a commonly-held opinion 🙂 It sure helped me sketch this guy: not much anatomy study here, but I’m feeling the mass and letting it settle in.
