Ocelot (color ink and pencil on paper)

I don’t usually do animal portraits. I don’t usually do portraits of any kind. But now and then it’s fun to just sit down and draw or paint something different.
I like cats of all varieties. Cats are both primitive and intelligent at the same time. Also I like the fact that they see right through you. You can’t fool a cat. And they owe no allegiances. They are the pirates of the animal world.

2 have said their bit, now it's your turn:

Lucky to have the original! My Southern Belle mama ,prior to her departure from this celestial orb ,was afraid to sleep in the same room with it...something about the predatory nature

oh I agree-it's nice to get out of your comfort zone and see what you can come up with in terms of portraiture.

this is truly amazing!
thank you for sharing.
