The ears

I'll be adding some more whiskers when I complete the body. You'll notice that though the ears on the two cats look the same, they are slightly different. The most important difference is the right ear of the "background" cat breaks the plane of her back.

With the highlights painted, the face comes alive. Often I wait until all the darks are in before I move onto the highlights. In this case, I want the lights so I can compare this lioness with the other lioness. Having the face mostly complete helps me gauge the contrast with the other lion.

More kitty-cat

I'm back to working on my lionesses.
This closer cat will have a bit more contrast and I am starting with a warmer palette which should make her feel closer to the viewer.
