Discover Darrel Tank’s time-tested methods for drawing fur so soft you’ll want to reach out and pet it! (And a lot more.)
How many fond memories can you trace back to your beloved cat?
The day you brought him home. The many evenings she spent curled up in your lap in front of the TV. Even the less likable moments (at least at the time), like the days you came home to see your house plants overturned and spread around the carpet…
Your precious, amusing, fun-loving, full-of-quirky-antics kitty means the world to you and brings you so much joy. So much joy that the only thing you can imagine being better is capturing your heart-warming bundle of fur in a drawing that you created with the pencils in your very own hand.
But then comes that “how-the-heck-am-I-going-to-draw-my-precious-bundle-of-love-the-way-I-really-want-to?” feeling washing over you...
That personality, those unique markings, the one-off antics that have endeared your cherished cat to you —how could you ever capture all of that on a piece of paper?
It’s a challenge for sure… and one that has kept countless pet-loving artists from ever getting started…
