I decided to write a critique after I realized that I had been staring at this work for several minutes. In awe. The feel of a super-hot day just jumps out at me, perfectly conveyed by this artist. Yes, I had originally thought this was a photo-and a very good one, until I saw the pencils listed.

The log and its textures are perfection. The cat just blows me away. I had my face up close to the screen while checking out the amazing talent shown in the minute fur detail. The face and whiskers are beautiful. The power of the cat is still there but the relaxed musculature is clearly visible-you know that it would take a fraction of a second for this incredible creature to be up and at your throat if threatened. It seems to be a silly thing but I do wish the tail was shown.
What do you think?

Just brilliant!  At this point, I can only dream of such drawing skill.   ... I love the dark-but-not-completely-black background, the great pose, and the lively look in this relaxed kitty's eyes!    :iconhigh5plz:  :iconfurrydanceplz:

This detailed drawing looks like an old photo because the background looks slightly faded and the drawing has a slightly off white, almost yellow tinge, I'm guessing because the paper.
