how do you do your lineless drawings and how do you do your fur?... Also how do you manage to pick the perfect dark shades and highlights on animals with lots of markings?....

Well, this one is a bit outdated but it's basically how I draw fur - cobravenom.deviantart.com/art/…
As for shading and highlights, I study photos of real animals to see how the light affects them :la:
I hope this helps :meow:

Very neat lighting and color! The more visible front leg seems a bit small in proportion with the head, but other than that, it's a wonderful painting!

Thank you very much!

I can see what you mean about the leg. Its funny how when you go back to a picture you see thousands of flaws, yet when you first drew it everything seemed right :dummy:
I'll try to avoid that in future pictures :meow:
