Eek --new and exciting media! just experimenting with chalk and charcoal...

How do you get that grainy texture...like on the nose?

Beautiful picture. Cute cat!

Thanks! I'm not entirely sure how I managed to get that grainy texture to be honest, I think it's just a combination of the texture of the slightly rough paper showing through and also me really layering on the white chalk in an attempt to make it whiter. Hope that's slightly helpful :meow:

Wohh I just looked at your gallery and you are seriously amazing at digital painting!:wow: I especially love 'Intense Cesc', it's so good I thought you'd put it in the digital paintings gallery by mistake :lol:
