Portrait of Pipsqueak by sidneyeileen Portrait of Pipsqueak by sidneyeileen
Chalk pastel pencils, conte crayon, colored pencil, and 8B graphite on colored pastel paper, 6"x10"
~8 hours

Photo reference: Pipsqueak the Tortoiseshell 2 by *carterr. Many thanks to *carterr for allowing me the use of her photo as a direct reference.

Another cute kitten drawing, this one in color. It's not as detailed as it could have been had I drawn it entirely in colored pencil, but I didn't have my normal colored pencils with me yesterday when I drew it, so I made due with the media I had on-hand. The black is the only colored pencil. The white is mostly pastel, and some conte crayon. The orange is partially sepia sketch media, and partially the paper color showing through. The pink is pastel. The grey shading is a base of 8B graphite covered with pastel.
