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.

This is just amazing, I honestly thought it was a photograph from the thumb. The fur texture and direction, the little wrinkles in the coat, the eye shine... it's all so perfect looking. And what's more it's on a scratch board, I never imagined that you could produce something like this one! How do you paint it and not completely cover up the scratches?
I've got an Ocicat Variant (a spotless Ocicat) as well, and I just love how perfectly you've got the coat colours. Just beautiful.

I use Koh-I-Nohr inks and ampersand inks . Very very diluted

RHargis Featured By Owner Mar 11, 2011  Student General Artist
I just stick with the Ampersand, but yes I agree about diluting them. Otherwise, the straight color is typically too bright.
