Abyssinian Cat Breed Caricatures

Doing these Abyssinian cat breed caricatures was close to my heart - I have two Abys myself. They sure wondered a bit why did I disturb their peaceful melting process in sunspots while drawing these, but they are a rather level-headed lot (especially in warm suspots) so I got my chance to check the details.

This was the very first Aby caricature I drew. You probably know that Aby coats have ticking - that means four different bands of color in each hair. The overall effect is a beautiful (in this case) brown color.  I did not even try to paint the effect on this little cat.

I named this Cartoon aby, as it looks more like a cartoon character than a real caricature.

Caricature Aby

Here. on the other hand, I have made a real caricature. (Which usually means drawing a bigger head to a small body). The eyes and big ears are emphasized and I even tried to catch the way light plays on the Abys coat. (Our own Abys practically glisten in the sun - their coat is so silky and shiny.)

The captivating eyes of the Aby are emphasized by the lighter-colored "eye paint". And I hope I managed to catch the intelligent and kind look of the cat's eyes.

black and white Aby

And of course I could not resist trying to catch the sillhouette of the Abyssinian. This time in black and white. And in a more realistic style. (Which is my normal style - making cartoon or caricature cats seems to require more sketching and drawing than realistic cat drawings.)
