Cornish Cat working on the weekend :)

profile alice cat judywatsonart loresPhew! That’s half the spread fixed.

I spent a day on Thursday working on this page, and was really unhappy with the results at the end of the day, so it was back to the drawing board and a re-work of this character group. It might not have mattered so much if it were a busy page. But this is a section of the still page. It has to be right…

err… now I’m looking and finding a few things I might tweak… But not today. Time to spend time with my boys.

So the page 25 Cat-Called-Thunder and Alice are working to my satisfaction. I’ve just got to finish off the seven other members of the family! (laughs hysterically)

    Well done, it’s a lovely grouping, the characters are utterly endearing, so the hard work was worth it. It looks as though it was drawn easily- which can be difficult to achieve after a whole day’s slog. Have a good weekend with your boys.

      Thank you! Too late to give up now, although I nearly gave up many times. This project has now gone too far to stop. Book to be published early 2015 so I must go forth and draw! :)

    It’s just perfect Judy – a classic illustration, right down to those lovely, lively toes. You might know all the hard work behind it but to me the characters look effortless. Bravo and good luck with the rest!

      Thank you Lucinda for your thoughtful observations. Sometimes the pencils feel almost effortless, but the inks, really never so. Retaining the freshness, yet imbuing with just enough ‘finish’ is difficult. But when it works, the heart sings :) Best of luck with all your exciting new projects! X
