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.

British Longhair by *BlackMysticA "She creates fantastic animal artworks, the fur is amazingly painted for example, each composition is really elegant and i LOVE her work of lighting, which adds a touch of mystery." ( Suggested by DameOdessa and Featured by WDWParksGal )

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.

That is a beautiful drawing. Very well drawn, shaded, everything. I clicked on this because it said British and looked cool. Puh-lease, "cool"is an understatement. Great work!

This is beautiful, my dad had a silver and white british longhair named Sparky and he accidently stood on him when Dad went to go for hisdriving test (long time ago) and he was sad through out his whole driving test and when he got to the vet she said Sparky was going to be okay. :)
