Ciara's Meerkat by SandieBlair Ciara's Meerkat by SandieBlair
Here is a drawing that I did using pastel pencils and a bit of prismacolor pencils. I had a great time doing it. It is my second pastel drawing so it's not the best, but I hope you enjoy it anyway. :)

Thanks so much to :iconaraic: for the use of this beautiful reference picture. [link] Check out her site.

Sandi, I think you have found a niche. This is incredible, especially for your second pastel! I can't seem to manage them, so I am terribly jealous of you and your talent. Keep up the great work!

I LOVE this! It is very well done, especially for only your second try. I feel for you--I just recently started using pastels as well. Warning it is addictive!
I think you did great with the fur, and I like the orange background a lot.

Just stopping by to thank you for the :+fav: to my drawing, The World Through My Eyes and had to comment on this one. Most people would never think to use orange as a background, but it's fantastic! I love this drawing. Very cute and just amazing quality!

Really nice work. I like the feeling of a Chinese painting, it's all very loose and expressive.

No problem it's the way the grass is painted in the background, very loose but sure. Love the colours, great choose.
