Nemo cat! watercolor and gouache

I'm really looking forward to living with Nemo next year! He is a very...blunt cat but I love him all the same. The white whiskers and eyebrows are done with gouache (Yes, I just picked those up too. More colours!)

Sorry forgot to take progress picture on this one.

Mona Cat!

Yup, another cat painting.

This is my kitty Mona. I adopted her from a shelter five years ago and she's the sweetest kitty I've ever met.

 Here are some progress pictures.

1) Fist wash with a mix of blue and red (which turned out grey).

2) A little more color and background.

3)Added some texture with a smaller brush

5)Added darker shadows and white fur.

The TARDIS is like a CAT.

 Horray! Summer shinnanigans! For this summer, I picked up watercolor. This painting is inspired by the episode of Doctor Who where the Doctor described the T.A.R.D.I.S. as a cat (because she was being mean to Oswin).

Here are some progress pictures.Constructive criticism welcome.

1) Outline with pencil and some shading in eyes. Paper's actually white, camera's just infected with my Asian-ness.

2) Applied some masking fluid on the fur to preserve the whites.

3) In hindsight, I probably should have researched on how to paint a cat BEFORE I started painting a cat.

4) Did some research on how to paint a cat.

5) Apparently Doctor Who fans have created Gallifreyan!

6) Masked the Gallifreyan in the back to preserve the colour and painted the first layer of background.

7) Masked another layer of Gallifreyan on the bottom then added more colours and salt.

 8) Rubbed off the masking fluid and salt with my fingers and added a little white on the TARDIS kitty's fur.
