Will You Let Me Pet the Kitty? by maina Will You Let Me Pet the Kitty? by maina
This little black and white illustration is a test among other little doodles tests for an idea that popped in my head.

I'm trying something new also: ink with ink washes. I need to focus on tones a little more these days. I'm hoping this idea will help improve my inking skills also.

This is Batty meeting a strange mermaid. I don't think I would trust her though...

================
5x7 ink and ink washes on Bristol paper.

Hi! Thank you so much for the feature. I don't know if I am too late, but do you think it would be possible to link to my tumblr page instead? I'm much more active there, than I am here. :)

It is: arodrigue.tumblr.com/

Thank you so much again! :)

Your line work is amazing. Compact, expressive and so detailed!

There's so much I love about this. I think my favourite part is the expression of the mermaid. She's so keen to pet that kitty, but I agree, there's something sneaky in her eyes.

Great work! n.n

Oh wow. XDD I wouldn't let her touch my cat. The mermaid looks like she must have had some bad encounters with cats, and isn't very pleased with them anymore. xD
