As soon as I saw this kitten’s gorgeous big green/blue eyes I knew that coloured pencil was the way to go, and that this portrait would rely on getting that glass-like shine spot on.

Drawn as a portfolio piece, rather than for a customer, it’s a superb example of the difference it makes to work from a great photo – the angle, pose, light, and clarity all contribute to make a lovely portrait. See more tips on choosing a great photo.
