Bobcat's, the Before and After

Sometimes, when I see older works I've done, I'm inspired to give it another shot.  The first feline portrait I did, was brought about by a friend who had an affinity for bobcats.  Fur was kind of difficult to get down, especially with how much white is in the animal.  So I wasn't thrilled with it, but it was a first good step in the right direction.

A year later, I was going through my stock and decided to give it another shot.  I found a loverly image of a bobcat munching on a fish, so while I didn't want a muzzle full of fish ick...the photo was a beautiful close up.  So I took it and ran with it.  It's fun to see the changes that occur over the course of just a year.  I'm excited to see how much it will change over the next 12 months!

Bobcats are strange little furballs though.  Compact powerhouses yet just as agile as a housecat.  Well...maybe not quite as agile.  They do make quite a "whomph" when they land.  While I'm still not convinced they can be easily mistaken for fat domestic cats, there are certainly enough of their half-breeded offspring floating around.
