I am 34 years old and have been drawing forever but just started painting a few months ago and was wondering what people think. Thanks!

The lighting on this is great and the colors look very natural. The fur could use a little hint of detail here and there in the shadow areas, but the again maybe that's not what you're going for. How do you like painting as opposed to drawing? Welcome to FM! :)

Thank you for your input. I love painting. I am addicted to it. I paint constantly! You are fairly limited with drawing and painting is like a whole new ball game.

This does look great! To me it appears the light is coming from the cat's left side, but there's no light source from that direction. After that I would consider it a masterpiece.
