I love playing with our little kitten Sugar. Her eyes get huge when I throw her squeaky mouse up in the air or drag in on the floor. Her little mouth draws up into a little mou. All the time, she is shivering with anticipation. I knew I had to get this down on paper so I could use her as a model for this image.
Sugar’s eyes are sort of a blue-green, but I had seen a cat with one gold eye and one blue eye and wanted to try my hand at recreating the look. I used the same felt tip technique as I did for the Orangutang earlier in the week (Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep). This had 4 layers and took about 3 hours to complete in Photoshop.
