Speed Drawing: Cat Skeleton

2년 전


Hello everyone! Today´s time-lapse is a cat skeleton, drawn with fountain pen and shaded/inked with Sumi ink on Arches paper. This piece has already been sold but you can find prints on my website, and limited edition(10) crypto collectibles on my Makersplace store.

Enjoy the time-lapse:)

I will now post a few pictures of the different stages of production with a quick description of my process.


In this stage I use my finest fountain pen and do a first ink pass on all the lines.


With a thicker fountain pen I do a second pass on some select lines to increase depth.


Now that the lines are down, It´s time for me to ink the background, a tricky process in the tight spots like ribs and the spine. I laid a mask on the paper with masking fluid before inking the background in order to have the trashed background look.


Finally I shade the piece superposing various ink layer of different concentrations, starting from the lightest to the darkest.

And here is a picture of the final piece!

@helpie Hey! Any particular reason for the downvote? Just so I know:P


@helpie do you realize I actually voted for you as witness? If you can´t give me feedback for the downvote I am afraid I can´t support you as witness anymore.


@skeenee This must be a mistake I will see about getting that removed ASAP


Cool, I was really wondering why as you guys have always been pretty supportive of my art:)

Nicely done. I will say that I might be a little jealous of your ability. (I’m also a cat person)
