Sorry I have not been active on PB for a little while I hope you all are well and looking forward to this new year
This is my latest drawing it's called Tabby and was done using Polychromas on Polyfilm is a very transparent film but takes coloured pencils and also graphite very well.  I hope you like it

Ohh, sweet Tabby. Beautiful :clap: :clap:

 :clap: :clap: :clap:  Ray another outstanding drawing.  Can't wait to get my Poly film to try it out. I agree, the eyes are spectacular and so is the fur.  You are really going ahead in leaps and bounds.  Wonderful Ray.  Keep it up.

Ray,

What a perfectly precious Tabby.  I don't have a clue about using Polyfilm, but it seems that you have really mastered it.

Beautiful drawing Ray. You captured the softness of the fur perfectly.

 :thankyou: very much for your comments Diane,Mea,Christine, Val and Patrica  if you ever get the chance to use Polyfilm that's the name they call it here in the UK in America the name they use their is Duralar or Grafix and you can purchase it from Dick Blicks if that is of any help   Ray

the bottom half of this drawing bothers me though, the hair seems to radiate out from the mouth, can you post the reference so I can check the angles on the photo?
