Inktober 2018, Day 11: Cruel

Day 11:

Isn't that a precious little kitty-cat? But the cute kitty has killed a bird!
Isn’t that a precious little kitty-cat?

What I wrote about this at the time:

The prompt was “Cruel” but honestly, we all get enough cruelty in our social media feeds every day. Cruel people, cruel acts, cruel words, cruel systems. So instead, have a picture of a cute, sweet, innocent kitten.
Indian ink, sketchbook paper, shaded and slightly colored with fake Copic markers in Autodesk Sketchbook.

I had a lot of fun drawing this. In my mind, I imagined the kitten as more of a Disney kitten from The AristoCats, but as I didn’t use direct reference (from the movie, or from real life. I have a real cat available but I didn’t look at him) and just tried to draw what was in my head, it turned out to be more of a Toonder-ish cat face. Until I colored it, then it became something else.
