Feline Fun

Here is a quickie post for my kitty loving friends.  Most of you know I am a doggie girl, but I do love my paper kitties as they don't shed!  Here is one of three kitty images that I have recently colored up and thought I would share with you today.
Note that I used the darker colors around the edge of the face and worked my way towards the center of the face using the lighter colors.  This helped build dimension to his little face.  I am calling this kitty Mustang after my dear friend Debbie's kitty.  I also used a bit of shading on the sides of his nose to pop the nose up.   I have to say I don't think I have ever used Copic YG93 but it gave the perfect green tint to match my background paper.  It's always fun to find that perfect match!

To get the fur like strokes I just used the very tip of my Copic pen and "flicked".

Here are the details!
Stamp: Stampendous Feline Fun P242
Copic Colors: Fur: C1, C3, C5, C7, ears: E000, E00, E11, R20, Eyes: YG03, YG63.  I also touched up the iris of his eye using C7 for a dark bold look. The ground is a mixture of YG93, E33 and E30.

Hope you like my  kitty!

Colorful Hugs,
