Lil BUB by Crimefish Lil BUB by Crimefish
:bulletpink: FC Polychromos pencils - list of those used, with swatches: [link]
:bulletpink: A4 cartridge paper
:bulletpink: reference photo: Lil BUB (property of BUB and her dude)

Normally I don't really care about internet cats. Sure they're cute, but I never get that
"this is so cute I'm actually going to die" feeling. Except with BUB. She's a very special kitty. :aww:

LOOK AT HER DERPY LITTLE FACE, YOU GUYS. JUST LOOK AT IT.

I've had art block for what feels like years, but I think it's only been 6 months or so (LOL, "only" kms).
I finally drew this a few days ago, and since today is my birthday, I'm submitting it.
It's not exactly what I intended (it's a little messy, to be honest) and I naturally thought it was because
trying to draw your way out of an art block results in substandard work; but then I remembered I
haven't actually drawn animals before. :lol: So I guess it makes sense, and now I'm satisfied with it.
Hopefully I'll continue drawing, instead of going straight back into block again.
I have a project ready that I want to start asap, so hopefully you'll see that sooner rather than later.

I love how you make a composition with the paper sheet and the drawing. Almost like the cat rose from "under" the paper to look at something :D

You make all the blank space be part of the composition, it is awesome!

I had planned to use a white gel pen afterwards for her whiskers, but thankfully I drew around them neatly enough that it wasn't necessary.

For someone who's not used to drawing animals, you've done a splendid job. Wonderful!

I just want to reach out and touch her tongue in the drawing.

And Happy Birthday. <3 I hope you'd have a great year, without any art block. :)
