This is so beautiful! It is almost hard to find something wrong from this. But if someone looks a little closely, the cat's right arm seemed a little skinny to the left arm. Because, of that, it makes the head look bigger. But really! No body would truely notice that! The texture and detail with the fur is amazing! Also the ears and eyes are very detailed. It's so beautiful! Just........WOW! Almost no words for this. It's a perfect master piece. Also the back ground and floor, (well, it's the same) is amazingly detailed. Keep up the super doper work!
What do you think?

soo cute! <3 could you tell me how could I use pastels like this? is there any technique or something? I have 2 pastel sets since a year but I don't waste them when I can't use them right >.<

I use dry pastels, usually on Canson coloured paper, and I just keep adding layers, sometimes I smooth them out on the paper with a paper stump or my fingers. I sometimes use spray fixative between layers so it will take more pastel. For the fine detail I use pastel pencils. I use a kneadable rubber to fix errors or a dry bristle brush to get excess off. Hope that helps. I have learnt most of my techniques from step by step books and lots of practice. :iconleartistplz:
