Black Beauty Cat

This is my latest drawing.
I'd like to get back into drawing cats regularly and thought I'd challenge myself with a close up. It took quite some time to do this portrait but I felt I learned something during the process so it certainly wasn't a waste of time. My favourite part to do was the nose area, the challenge of getting the shine in the fur and little highlights.
Thanks to Robin for once again lending me her cute cat for drawing.

She's done with charcoal. A4 (8x10")
