Tools: Faber Castell art pens on smooth bristol

Here are some Wips if you are interested.

I really love this, the overall impact is really good, i gave you a 4.5/5 for originality because although you see lots of drawings of snarling big cats, you don't see many from this angle, there's a good show of attention to detail in the fur, gums and whiskers, the shading is fantabulous and I really enjoy looking at this piece, the only things I can see that you could add or do better with this is that sometimes the whiskers get split ends just like our hair does, so that could add a bit more realism to this. Also the ear fluff on the left ear seems rather controlled in the way it isn't as shaggy or varied in length like you see in the right ear. Hopefully you can use this to improve.

Holy mother, this is incredibly amazing!
I love every detail, you had to spend years to make it. I admire your patience too, but, of course, your talent is the most incredible thing.

(I am a bit busy, so I would not write the rest of 100 words. I just want to let you know your work is incredible and if you want to use more of my stuff as a reference for your own art, you surely can! And do not forget to tell me about the finished piece of art because I definitely want to see it! :clap:). Fantastic!

What kind of FC artist pens do use exactly? I'm just curious :D

They say Pitt artist pen black 199**** on them. Made in Germany. I usually use the brush pen for the background and have to go over it several times to get it really black, and everything else is mostly the .01 or sx size. I use crosshatch and stipple, or whatever seems to work, (this piece doesn't have any crosshatch in it). Thanks for all the nice comments.

You're most welocme. Thanks for all the information in return! It really helped me a lot especially the hint about the brush pen for creating a solid black background. I always failed at setting up a rich deep background for my own drawings but maybe I'll be able to achieve a more satisfying result by using one of these pens next time.
