Art Post: Sketch for My Twitter Page

This is a pencil sketch of me and my cat, Tabitha. I plan to do a digital version of this later to add to my Twitter page.

I'm holding a Cross mechanical pencil in my right hand, in case you were wondering :) It's my favourite pencil for sketching.

The clothing is based on things I own. I may make some edits for accuracy in the digital.

Usually, Tabitha sits on my left shoulder and watches things behind me. I didn't really want to draw her like that though. I thought showing her face would be better.

When I hold Tabitha, I usually support her with my forearm, close to my waist. I don't usually hold her as shown, but I took some liberties for the sketch. I'm not sure yet if I want to move her to my shoulder and then put a sketchbook or something else in my left hand.

I just realized, I parted my bangs backwards in the sketch. Oops! I'll have to fix that later.

Hope you enjoy the sketch :)

Thanks Emily,
I've been sketching since 1940..
Your work is neat and careful and
seems to be a near complete and detailed as finished illustration without going too much further ..
I wish I had some of your talent.

Thank you so much! I'm glad you like my work.

I appreciate my talent very much, but I also work hard at it. I first started getting really interested in figure drawing in late 1995, but I've been drawing professionally on and off since 2000. I've been drawing more often since 2006, when I first launched my comic.

Thanks for stopping by my blog, I hope you'll continue to enjoy it :)
