She's Catty

I did this in pencil then I chalked it.
I personally like it with no chalk on it.
The finished one looks totally different to me.
I did the eyes sort of catlike, and once I chalked them, well lets say " Yuck, Me no like".
Oh well back to the drawing board.

Well I love her maybe use some thing other than chalk to colour them in.. Your just are to critical.

I really like this, I prefer the first as it has a lovely hazy quality,
if you are not happy with the second version, why not push it further, put wax crayon in some areas and put a light wash of colour over the whole thing.

Hi, Tonniece, I like Cat's tilting eyes ... very alluring.

I'm sorry you don't like the chalk version. Sometimes I use light wash water color, then detail it with pencil color. I don't know whether you would like to give that a try :)

Thanks ladies. I will try these methods next time as they both sound great.
I guess I get an image in my head and if it don't turn out just right I lose focus.
I thought patience was my best virtue, but I guess that's not the case.
