This is ~Wolves1207's gorgeous little cat character Shirokai. I know I've got a lot of other stuff I should have been doing, but I just couldn't resist drawing this little fellow! I haven't drawn cats for ages, so it was really great fun to get another break from my equine drawings.
Don't you just love the way cats always look so sweet and innocent right before they are about to do something mischievous..? Angels or devils, who can really know for sure, eh?
THE MAKING OF "Up To No Good..."

YAY another feline! I love this so much! First, great job on the pose, as always. You always pick harder poses. If I was going to draw a cat, I would draw it from the side and work my way to harder poses, like a front angle. But you, you start from whatever angle you feel like and just keep getting better! This is absolutely amazing, Cerona. I love the shading and colors on this one. I also LOVE the vivid green eyes, and the markings are so amazing.
Great job on the background, too. I love the design on the walls, and the reflection of the cat and plant on the floor is great, too. You always post such amazing artwork! Great job, and keep it up!
Haha thanks, I'm so glad you like it (and him!) I was just looking through my cat books to try and find a nice, not-too-complicated pose to draw, and I just fell in love with this one Although I've drawn many cats by hand, I haven't actually drawn many on the computer, so it made a really nice change from horses (again) I did struggle with the background - I always seem to when I do these sort of drawings - and I just couldn't think of anything that would suit him. So I just came up with this idea instead XD And it just looked too empty without a plant there aswell..
