Another Kitty Cat Portrait

"Symba" ( see all proofs)

Working on pet portraits today and I have a few giftshop items to ship out. I just proofed Symba. I love tortoise shell cats. Their coats are fun to play with.  Symba's original photo had a lot of detail. The eyes had a bit of an intense glare so I rounded them slightly and added a white highlight. I think there is still plenty of sassy attitude, but the over all mood is a bit lighter now.

Ooh, the fun colors. Love how the whiskers pop out, too. We used to have a tortoise shell - their markings are so pretty.

Thanks:) Yep, they are lovely kitties. I like Calicos too.

Aah, I used to have a tortoise kitty that looked just like this. Her name was Braelyn and I wish I'd never given her to my daughter. I love how you've filled the canvas with this beauty, Rebecca! And by the way, I'm glad I follow your blog too!
