I painted the rest of Scout's body today but I need to adjust the coloring. It seems I have reversed the shading of the red spots. He should be darker near his chest and have lighter red patches on his rear.
Step 2: Painted rest of figure, needs revisions

I am going to try to a "detailed" background. Not a complicated subject but a very elaborate abstract with definate brush strokes. Just like the handleing of scout's coat in this picture, but primarily in greens and blues.





This is Scout. He lives outside & the sun has highlighted his fur giving him a very unique coat. He is the alpha-male of his cat family and I think he is in the mafia as well... but don't let his intense gaze scare you off, he can be very affectionate.

Steps 1 & 2: I completed the sketch and started to paint his face.
