Catty Kris - Jessie T. Wolf
Been really inspired to get art done lately, and managed to whip this up in a day. Really am proud of how it turned out, especially since I’ve found I’m getting better at finishing a piece straight from sketch, to ink, to color (instead of my usual rough, then edit, then having to retrace the good copy with my light box). Very good practice for me, especially when it comes to doing con badges. I used to find it to be a bit of a challenge to get fully colored badges done right on the spot at conventions, without them looking all weird and disproportionate.
There were very minimal proportion errors that I noticed in this particular piece, other than the hands looking a bit odd. Still not the best with hands. But I really like the way her dress came out. ^^
The original is for one of the doctors at the vet clinic I work at, (hoping to eventually get a gift piece done for all of my co-workers) but I’ll have a framed print of this on display at Anthrocon, if I manage to get into the Artist Ally this year. :)

Stupid fucking Geocities. >.< Rogers Cable just HAD to join up with Yahoo/Geocities! O.x Jay's kindly posted it to his own FTP, so hopefully everyone can see it now. :-P
Thanks for letting me know! It gives me a lot of problems... >.

I don't really have a choice in the matter, at this point in time. O.o My ISP is Rogers Cable, and they recently joined with Yahoo/Geocities. I know that Geoshitties is crap, but it's the only thing I can use as an FTP right now, unfortunately. :/ But Jay's going to help me get a new webhost. I wanna redo my website with my own domain name after AC anyway. *shrugs*
hahaha great icon! I can't decide now which one I like better
*ears droop atta scary wuff* ;>
looking good Jessie :) I hear ya on the hand problem, with me hands are so/so, my main problem is the face :/ never could get that right.
Hands? Oh yeah, hands. She has hands.
*was looking at her titties*
ha, sweet. Nice to see another breeder around :>
just because you're straight doesn't make you a breeder. :P I and my vixen have no plans of having children, for example.
Hey, she's pretty. I want to rub behind her ears and see if she purrs.
I hope you make it into Artist's Alley. I'd like to whore my book out to you for a fair payment. ;)

T_T I still wish I could draw like that. My aunt gave me one of those artist dummy things, so maybe I can get a little better now. Doubt I could ever learn to color like that, though. I love that pic. She's so cute. ^_^
Oh you're gonna try to rock the Alley too? I wanna sit by Jessie! I wanna sit by Jessie!

Awww... CRAP! >.< There always has to be SOMEthing! X.x *slaps self in the forhead*
Maybe I can fix it... O.O
*draws out some new feet*

Okay! I managed to fit it! Kinda. :-P Looks a bit off... but at least the correct feet are on the correct legs...? O.o
That's an easy mistake to make when you draw crossed legs. I do it all the time.
I'm surprised I didn't notice, but you know.. distractions.

Hey, Speaking Of Art Stuff......
Do you happen to remember a fox named Cirrus? He's kind of an artisty guy. Well, if you're interested he's still visiting at my apartment for teh next few weeks. Why don't you drop by some Saturday, and the two of you can hang out?

Re: Hey, Speaking Of Art Stuff......
Sweet! :-D I dunno about this weekend, but I can try for the next one? O.o Say hello for me! ^^ *huggles*

Re: Hey, Speaking Of Art Stuff......
He's here until Anthrocon. So, if you can't make it this weekend, next weekend should be good.
You should really try to get a dealers table next year :3

I'm going to try really hard! Though I keep hearing that they may be doing another Lottery, even with the Dealer's room. O.x I dunno, but I'm going to try anyway! :) You going to as well?
Yeah! I'm going to try for next year, too. It's a relief if you can make it past the first raffle for a dealers table. They sure tried to make it hard for us to get our tax licenses, though.

'Situated with pride when a cat strolled by.'
Skipping the lightbox also lets you work from the good copy without another tweaking session. Gives you more direct control on what you feel is the best final sketch point. Better flow for just simple or personal projects.
Will improve speed and on-the-spot work.
I use a Fiskar's Lightbox. Not fancy or expensive, but gets the job done when wanting a clean cartoonist cell feeling before coloring. The nightmare of trying to make my own will not be mentioned again. o.o
Keen job on Miss Kitty.
The way the coloring has the light falling on the dress material worls great. That and the contrast between the blue and her brown layer furs.
I'd say the repair work on the feet is seamless. Good stitching, Mary Shelly.
The hands you can say are stylized. That or you had a Big-O moment. ;)
o/` Well you know my name is Simon, and I like to do drawrings. o/`

You know, hon, I'm jealous of your abilities with colored pencils.
Yeah, once I find a job and get some money I'll commission you again, hon.
