Three Copic Art Cards, a Fae and Two Cats

Post #150. Where does the time go?!

Amy Fae
2.5″ x 3.5″ markers, pen and ink

Amy belongs to the Northern River Pixie Clan. The Northerners can speak to more of the animals than any of the other clans, though they are poorer at gardening and plant speak. Amy has a particular affinity for small wildcats. And she is Maiden #67.

Next, more cats! For a cat swap at (I may even do an art card cat project after the dogs. Or maybe it will be sheep. Or llamas. Or farm animals. Oh dear.)

The Patron Cat of Saints, and Ed Cat
Each 2.5″ x 3.5″ art cards. Copic markers.

First scrapped title: Enigmati-cat. Second scrapped title: Saint Gretchen.They call her Gretchen though none know her true name. She has been depicted in holy ancient artworks spanning two centuries and sightings continue to this day, usually near a site of religious significance.

The grey cat with the fancy tie is Ed Cat. He does not like you. Or rather, he wants you to think he does not like you, to retain his haughty cat street cred. But really he does like you, and he will sneak onto your lap (or possibly your head), if you ignore him properly.

I really must get back to Illustration Friday! I don’t know the word yet but I will definitely do the next one! Thanks for stopping in!

    Interesting Fae……reminds me of the aliens from Avatar the movie. She is quite exotic. Love Patron of Saints Cat….the glowing light green against sunburst is wonderful.
    Happy weekend!

    I love the progress shots of Ed’s eyes – great job with capturing the reflected light and deepening your values!

      Thanks for all the nice comments! The drawing comes first most of the time. Occasionally for larger pieces (Illustration Friday), there’s a story idea, but since the image often changes, the story often does too. :)

    Yay, the cats!

    And I’d love to know where the time goes too. Especially the one that seems to be in such a hurry.

    I have to check out those places you make your trades for… I’d love to get my hands on one of your cat cards… hmmm… would you be interested in trading with little tiny me? :)

    I love the eyes you create, Cindy. They are always moist looking and the prominent feature on all your portrait creations. Your cats are superb; always! They have always caught my attention.
