British Longhair by BlackMysticA British Longhair by BlackMysticA
A British Longhaired cat. Commission for the Dutch Catbreed Association (NRKV, de Nederlandse Raskatten Vereniging).

I already have drawn a (kind of...) black silvershaded British Shorthair in the same kind of composition, so I wanted to depict the Longhaired variant in the same way. The backlight was a bit difficult with this colour, so it doesn't look like black-sivler-shaded anymore...but well, for the rest I'm glad with the result ^^


Done with Adobe Photoshop CS2 and a Wacom Tablet. A bit speedy work because of the deadline, I think I have worked on it 3 evenings or something.

Simply stunning. The contrasts within it's fur really makes it shine. I love how fluffy it looks, and it's expression is filled with mischievousness.
