Miss High Haughty, Queen of all Tuxedos

IMG_8611

Miss fuzzy cat. Every once in a while I look out for a new way to render her magnificent shagginess.

Hello! Yes! Proceed! Oh, I don’t know. Goodnight.

I too could run the world if you would let me.

Napping on the table

The dining room table was cleared for a day or so. And we haven’t napped there yet. So it must be done.

Out at night

That Tom! I know he’s out here!

Now I have the box!

My turn

It’s like a condo timeshare.

I have the box

Four cats. One box lid.

Okay. I think I got it.  A number of other in-process, well, maybe they were done, but, oh, I don’t know versions are viewable at samupressart Tumblr. All in various stages of goodness. But I think this one balances all the tricks quite nicely.

I want to go out

I feel better. I took my meds. And that other stray Tom is out there to beat up. So you have to let me outside. Oh, wait it’s raining. Crap. I guess I’ll stay in and bother you. Until I forget that its raining.

Miss tuxedo cat and her wonderful tail

It’s my world and welcome to it.

A long-haired queen tuxedo cat, born in a window well, she always looks maniacally alert because she thinks everything is going to eat her. Domesticated enough that she has a home to shed in.

Made with Auryn Ink, a watercolour simulation app. The interface is odd, but, okay… I’m beginning to see how it works. I like the new smooth paper surfaces.

What? Who? Me?

Something ages old from Procreate. I was testing some integration from Paper, as I do like the fat pen tool, but Procreate has some nice chalks and charcoals.

Returning to it, it looked more interesting than I remembered. A few more charcoal smudges and it’s not too bad.

The old and the young

One is 23. One is 19.

Something I rarely do is paint from a photo, but this scene was likely going to change quickly. So, yes, I traced over the photo for the figure and forms, otherwise completely digitally hand painted free form. No filters, no sampling.

Just some silliness.


Just futzing around with importing something into Paper. That patch of orange colour has been run through numerous filters. Anyway, this is also an experiment to see if this image, sized elsewhere will appear ridiculously larger than necessary here.
