A Cat & Star Story - Some Drawings as Coloring Pages
Topic: Coloring Pages

My recent Cat and Star story drawings: Today I worked more on the scene of Cat getting into it's little boat, on the beach, with Star looking on. I've drawn it a few times in pencil. I like to work in my car so I can be out and about while working but it can get awkward. In this case I'd had to use the car window for a lightbox for tracing. When I thought it was ready to ink, I realized I did not want to ink over the pencil drawing. I'd have to try inking while tracing. But that did not work in the car without a proper lightbox. That work session ended up being instead a practice session of drawing freehand repetitions, with brush and ink (black watercolor), of the cat's head. It was good practice though.

This version I drew with a croquis pen and black watercolor, 'inking' over the pencil lines. The pencil is not yet erased and ink smudges not cleaned up in the originals. The enlargements got some digital doctoring though. You can download my cat and star drawings for coloring pages!
