Default Cat Portrait

My cat portrait. First stages in the painting. Thought I'd post the drawing stage first before I take the next step in applying paint and colored pencil. Critiques are welcome.

Oh my! That is beautiful. You asked for critiques and bearing in mind I am no artist, I looked very hard to pick on something. All I can say is that perhaps the paws are too blocky. From face to elbows everything has a cat's natural grace and bend but elbows to feet are less ... finished and soft.

My cats paws are delicate, soft and in the contemplative mood of your cat in the picture, definately the paws would be relaxed.

I feel guilty just picking on anything about that picture though. I wish I had your talent.

Default Thanks everyone.

Thank you everyone so far on your comments. I appreciate them.

Skyeboxer: I see what your saying about the feet. I agree with you to some degree. I think I'll soften the corners a bit, but I believe once I start applying the color in layers you'll start to see a softer look to his feet. Great eye for detail though...
