Daily Sketch Reprise: All Day Nap, 2013

At this angle, there wasn’t much to distinguish these two, only the stray ear or whiskers. Mewsette and Jelly Bean have been cuddling on the table by the window for days on end, having magnificent all-day naps. Today was very overcast so the light was dim and there wasn’t much to be seen of either of them.

I had only sketch pencils and white paper on hand, but what I was visualizing was something light on dark, just catching the highlights from the windows. It’s not quite the same, but here it is below modified in Photoshop. Now that’s more like it.
