I admit to myself, this one turned out very nice and i'm very happy about this one. I put just as much patience into this as i do every other one, but this turned out so much better. I am quite sure that it is all because of the accuracy of the shapes (and shapes within shapes). They have to be absolutely perfect or it I'll be tweaking for 20 hours and it never works out because it's "is the left eye too small or is the right eye to big"). I know you can use dividers and rulers but i don't have any patience for using them. I'm paralyzed with complete compulsiveness to stick to my drawing and draw even if my eraser just ran out..cannot leave from it.   

By the way, i did this one twice before i accomplshed this one and both were disasters.  4 hours later.............yup. All i can stands and i can't stands no more!   Believe me, you can see i do not take major chances!!!

The moment you find yourself mostly satisfied with a painting and think you'll "just quickly" do this or that, that's the moment to stop completely. Take the painting off your easel and put it aside for at least 24 hours, then reassess whether it really needs that tweak.

 :flowers: :flowers: :flowers: So SWEET, PAT!!! Did you use a white pencil for the whiskers? Or that tool with a point that you scratch onto the paper?  I forget what they call it.
Good job with this drawing!

Dennis, i had put another 2 hours at least AFTER this. I added just a TOUCH more highlight on both eyes and believe me, it was not overdone. I was afraid to look again after that because my eyes decieve me once they are fatigued like that looking too long. I just read about how the eye see's "points" when drawing by a reference. That's why you have to constantly move around the drawing and never one spot for long. Anyway, after a couple days, i feared looking and it's fine, no difference really, possibly hair better.Thanks for the comments everybody. Liz, yes, i used the white pen for the whiskers. I tried the indentation before and it doesn't work well for me. It's called Uni Posca pen. I had bought a different white pen before it and it wasn't good. This one is.
