This commission was for a silhouette of a cat named Loki. When creating silhouettes of my own cats, I found it very difficult to get a photo from just the right angle (it needs to be mostly side-on, but not entirely). By using a combination of photos of the cat, plus reference photos of cats of the same breed, it’s possible to get a result that looks good and conveys a little of the cat’s character too. That said, when I presented some of my art at my local school, one of the kids said they look like dogs…

The below ones were the originals I did of my own cats.
