Rough Colours

I don't often start colouring the whole of an image, I tend to work on one section and then move on to the next. But with this kitten's calico fur pattern I need to know where the colours stop and start so needed to have the colours roughly coloured in and with this paper you have to plan ahead. You need to work in layers, so the chin has to be done before the upper jaw area is coloured, so that the shading of the lower jaw does look like it is under the upper.

Ugh, really need to get the camera set up and video what I mean, since this is probably hard to understand. *reminder to myself-get camera set up :p

And my stitches came out today, so no more pulling, yay! Took him awhile to get them all out, but it would with 30 of them to cut away. Then we got into a discussion of why the cops are so obsessed with the number of stitches a person has, when it really doesn't make a huge difference. There are so many variables to the amount of stitches a wound might need or not need. But bigger numbers for stitches is more impressive in court :p

Gorgeous eyes on this kitty! It's going to be wonderful when you get all the fur in. Stitches? 30 stitches? Oh, you poor thing!!! Hope you heal quickly and are not in too much pain - sending you cobalt blue waves of healing thoughts...

Very glad its done and over with since its not the most comfortable thing to have done

I just wish I could scan this instead of having to take photos of it, but until I spray it with fixative I cant take the risk of taking it off the board :/
