Daily Sketch: Kelly Air-kneading

I just couldn’t pass her up today even though I sketched her sleeping on my desk yesterday. She was so happy on my desk, but instead of the happy ball of legs she was all stretched out and air-kneading with all four paws. Of course, it loses something in translation when you can’t see her moving, but I tried to give the toes a lot of attention, and catch the curl in her tail.

Charcoal pencil for quick, simple lines.
