Absolutely stunning and beautiful work! This is a very dreamy piece, for a viewer could quite easily get lost in the eyes of the cat. The textures are quick and smooth strokes of pencil, which gives the piece a sense of softness and depth.

This cats blue eyes are magnificent and definitely the focal point; even down to the small details in the iris's. All physical aspects appear to be nicely balanced and composed correctly on the animal. I like how there's a balanced space of darkness and blue hues behind the animal, which brings the viewers eye back to it's eyes and blue hues on the nose and tufts of fur.

As said before, this animal is very dreamy, but at the same time, concentrated. It's easy to feel calmed by this animal.
In my opinion, you did great work in expressing these above feelings in the expression of the cat.

I feel what you saw in the photograph, you reflected VERY well into this piece. However, due to it being from a photograph, it did take away from the originality of the subject coming from the artists mind. I feel the skill and techniques used were magnificent! This would easily be an excellent art piece for any cat lover to own! Great work!

You interpreted a beautiful creature as you saw it, you used your G-D given talent to do so, and you presented it for all to see. All artwork should be unique to the artist's hand. Your contribution here IS unique to you, and (as far as I'm concerned) stunning! Though others may find fault with your technique or presentation, I prefer to look beyond "art teacher critique", to effort, intent, and purpose. I love cats, and I appreciate beautiful art. This touches my soul on both counts and (please) don't consider my words to be at all patronizing! If you love, express the emotion. I love it.

lately i am tempted to 'resize' my older pieces into BIG versions on another surface and with another media. Have already started to do this with Stand Still by XRlS and we ll see how this goes. If it turns out successfully i ll repeat it.
Not sure i care much about photorealism but it seems this is where i end up eventually. :)

Ah, I see! I like photorealism but it's not my all time fave when it comes to art. It's always nice to watch photorealism, though, but I usually want it more "arty" (i.e. more looking like art than a real photo), and I also appreciate motives that hasn't already been done a million times before, you know: "Nice, but I've seen it many times before." Something that challenge one's thought/view is always welcome. Well, nice work this one: xrls.deviantart.com/art/Stand-… :-)
As goes for this version xrls.deviantart.com/art/Down-3… you should try not to color it, I think it would still look great! Or make one version with and one version without color, maybe?
This is just my random thoughts, not criticism, so keep it up! :-)
(And if there happens to be a "nipple slip" in your drawings I won't cry, haha! You should know me by now...) ;-)

yes i know exactly what that "more looking like art than a real photo" means. Some times its possible some its not.
The one i have started already is on a gesso-ed plywood 70x70cm and it will have water soluble wax pastels, acrylics, color pencils and pan pastels (to name some of the media) along with polymer films in between the layers. Thats what i call fun. :)

Hmmm, that's a experimental mix you're into! I love experiments with art, and that's why I'm mostly into digital art: I usually experiment with software, plugins/effects, layers etc etc etc for hours on end, which means I end up with 30-40 different versions of the same picture. After that I have a hard time choosing just one or two to upload... I used to have a Flickr page where I uploaded many versions of the same pic, but I deleted that page and switched to dA (which I haven't regret since!).
Well, I should start uploading my own works too, not just comment on others, d'oh!
