    What you'll learn
    Embossing: How to use it to bring details like cat fur and and whiskers to life. Amy teaches you this brilliant method for adding precise detail.

    Faber-Castell Polychromos: Amy chooses 16 colors from the Polychromos line for this tutorial, and you'll find that the oil-based pencils work perfectly for blending many layers to achieve rich, dynamic colors.

    Fabric: Bobbins rests in a sea of floral fabric, making this the perfect image to learn two new skills in one! Get fabric folds and shading just right while learning how to create a soft, receding background that lets the kitty just pop off the page.

Excellent tutorial

I just started with cp drawing for few months. This is all you need to learn how to draw a super lovely cute cat. I also learned how to draw blanket with folds and flower details.

Beautiful Bobbins

This was a great tutorial. Luckily I had all the materials. The instructions were easy to follow, and I’ve ended up with a lovely portrait.

Le chat

Bonjour Je n'ai pas encore commencé , mais je dois dire que j'aime beaucoup les explications et je suis certaine que j'aurai grand plaisir à réaliser le tableau du chat. Je ne parle pas l'anglais malheureusement, alors j'ai dû le faire traduire en français ce qui a prit bien du temps. Bien à vous ! Alexandrine

Great tutorial

This is work in progress, but the tutorial so far has been easy to follow, and is producing a great result. It’s my first tabby cat in coloured pencil. I’ve been using pastel pencils for a few years, and I’m giving myself a year to understand and use coloured pencils, and this tutorial is a great help with layering.
