Thank you, Dear Guest! ever since I was a child I have been in awe of some of the incredible book illustrations of this character, I always knew that someday I'd have to attempt my own version of Puss, I'm so glad you like him, it sure makes the effort worthwhile!

Very Lovely. The cat has all the right tectures, colors, hat, an boots. I also love the hat becuase the feathers on it look so REAL! It is so BEAUTIFUL!

Thank you Leo! you are absolutely right, pencils can be time consuming, but I get a real buzz out of the challenge!

Brilliant work, James. I have no patience for colored pencil, but seeing art like this makes me want to give it an honest try.

Thanks Regan, I'm glad you liked the background as it is a marvellous City

Thanks May-Lin, and yeah! the boots had to be comfortable as cats are very particular about what they wear on their feet (chuckle!)

Lovely picture, I especially like the boots, they look real leathery and comfortable. Smile

I really love the color scheme in all your works, this one in particular, it just seems rich and ties in with the tabby cat's colors. I love the backdrop, too, especially the color of the sky and how it compliments the rust colors. Very nice!
