    Thank you Geoff, I keep doing lots of tweaking with the base layer colours to get the shades in the right places.

    I love this piece of work, you have got the "glassiness" of the cats eyes just right. I would love to know how you got those fine whiskers in ? For me drawing on paper I would "score" the paper to create those, but I imagine you must of used a very small line in white perhaps ???? Is this also done on one layer, sorry for all the questions

    Thanke you copespeak,

    Drawing4rart, I use lots of layers, one for each section then if I make a mistake or don't like how it's turning out I can redo it. The wiskers are done on one layer with the ink pen on 1% I have to do them with a quick stroke to keep them smooth. Once it is nearly finished I will merge the layers down that don't need anymore changes.

    Thanks for the information Saphire...I wondered if you needed to merge the layers together after a piece has been finished so now I know

    Wow! This is really amazing, i'm a lover of details and this is a detailed masterpiece!

    Very very good work, i'm admiring it.



    Do you have more work similar to this to show (if you wan't )?
    How long did it take for you to get this good?



    I'm stunned...

    It usually depends on how many layers I have open as to whether I merge them. The iPad eats up memory when to many things are going on, the last thing I want is for it to crash before I have had chance to save. At the moment I have about 10 copies, when I start a new section I save as copy and work on that one, when it is finished I just keep the last two copies for backup purposes.

    Thank you Panzerstarter for your kind comment, I have lots of paintings like this in my gallery.

    I have always loved painting and drawing so you could say I have done it for the last 60 years. I only took up digital painting just over 18 months ago when I received my first iPad and found ArtRage, being partially sighted animals are very easy to do, I just sit and stroke the screen the only hard parts are the eyes and features.

    Looking good, sorry about the blown out area it was a quick shot just at the moment and there was a very strong early sun shining across the deck which over exposed that one area. One of those shots where it is better to take a quick shot than not at all.
