I tried drawing the whole cat body today.
From today’s practice, I learned that:
A: I can draw the whole body precisely enough using a ballpoint pen and about 15cm square paper without trouble. I was wondering if I might need to use a larger paper but looks like this paper size is good enough for drawing the whole body.
B: Most of excellent cat drawings are with a pencil or colored pencils. These mediums are excellent for expressing mid tone and I suspected that the same thing would not be possible with a ballpoint pen. BUT it looks like it is!

But I realise I am facing a new challenge here.
There are some different types of tabby cats. How can I express them separately in monochrome?????

Well, the study goes on…
