Buster by Heatherzart Buster by Heatherzart
16" x 20"
Scratchboard and ink

Pet portrait of Buster who is an ocicat. Show quality ocicats have spots but Buster's coat was more like an abyssinian so it had an interesting ticking to it. I had to go in with a tiny brush and draw individual hairs but I think it worked.

I was going to say, my mother had an abyssinian named Ra, (after the Egyptian God of Sun), and Buster looks a lot like him. They are really beautiful cats, I'll have to check out ocicats.

(Meanwhile, my Mom also had a Bichon Frise named Buster. LOL)

I have an abyssinian mix named Jake and he's beautiful - the breed has always been my favorite.  Jakes litter mates ranged from him - almost all yellow and brown ticking with a few stripes to almost all tabby with some abby markings.  I never knew about ocicats before this commission - apparently they come in a variety of colorings and markings.
