This cat is an illustration for a friend of mine who has written a story. Her now deceased cat was named Goya. As you can tell from the photo she sent me I have taken some liberties with her markings. Mostly I was concerned with trying to capture the sweet, contemplative nature the picture conveys.
She is about 3″ x 4″. Even though her friend in the story is a boxer dog and will need to be bigger, which gets a bit unwieldy to stamp, going any smaller than that makes it hard to capture expression in the eyes.
I’m thinking a dark grey will suit her character well, but it was great fun to try on different coats of color.
