Moggy Finished

"Moggy" Copyright Jennifer Rose Phillip
ACEO 2.5 by 3.5 inches
Coloured pencil

Finished the WIP. I did end up getting carried away and forgot to scan it again between colours. I might do this one again on different paper. I didn't do it on black paper because I didn't think I could have gotten the eye as bright as it is here and didn't use white paper because I wasn't sure how long it would take to fill in all that black. Kinda regretting using the yellow paper because I am not sure if I like how much of it shows threw the black.

I can't lay any more colour down sadly so it is what it is. I like the eye itself, just wish the black was darker.

And here is the town tree (photo taken with John's phone). It looks dead. :/ And it doesn't look any better at night lit up. The lights look like they were just thrown on.

I think your cats eye is fine,you can see through the black in a few places, but I think that adds in a little contrast.

I dunno, I think the yellow paper worked to your advantage with this one. The yellow showing through ties it in nicely with the eye itself, it looks awesome!

Don't you just hate it when you see a nice tree that could be really well decorated and instead someone does a crummy job on it? Bah humbug!

Thanks, the more I look at it, I am actually starting to like the yellow showing threw. :)

It is a shame, because the lights in town look really nice and the tree looks bad :/
