'Every artist was first an amateur' ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

This quote has always been on of the few that has always really stuck out to me as being a simple fact. Then last but not least there is a quote that I can remind myself of whenever I feel like nothing I do or make is ever right or even in the ball field of being some type of perfect...

'Have no fear of perfection, you’ll never reach it' ~ Salvador Dali

That quote is one of the most humbling ones that is true in the simpliest terms.

So, the reason for bringing up these two quotes brings us to what this post is about... This piece of artwork I created of a black cat... The first image was my original but then I decided to keep working on it and darkening up the colors some. I took pictures of both outcomes. I'd like some feed back on both of them. In my opinion the second is my favorite.

Hopefully in the near future I'll have a updated rendition of this drawing/painting. Enjoy!

Yes, everyone has to start somewhere, so there's no shame in learning a new skill. Keep learning and practicing and you'll get better. Although I think you're already doing really well.

I like the second picture better as well. I think it looks more "finished" than the first one. I also like the brighter colors, specifically the reds.

I always admire your paintings and photos, this one is sorta cute like you My dear ozhiya
