Cat in Pen & Ink~

This is another project I have started on, a Pen & Ink of my cat, Nari.

I made sure to put the reference photo I took of her, next to the pencil drawing. I always pencil in first to make sure my values are in proportion.
Also tried to make the penciling darker than I normally do, so it will be easier for you to see.

Here I am just starting on her eyes and the fur around them.
These are my favorite Pen and Ink tools. I am using my usual 140lb hot press watercolor paper in a 9" by 12" size this time. Pens I am using are the Copic Multiliner 0.03 and the Sakura Pigma micron .05. Also have my pencil and a high quality eraser to remove the pencil marks.
Bit more fur to the right side of her face and color to her nose.
