Charcoal Portrait of Pumpkin the Cat - From Start to Finish

Katie and James comissioned me to draw the very striking Pumpkin as a wedding present for their friends. She was the third commission I did for them!
She has some beautiful markings so we decided that a detailed portrait would work well - I did the medium 8" x 10" portrait size and she took me around twelve hours to complete.
See her progressing in the below video:

"We have commissioned 3 animal portraits from Emma in the past year, 2 dogs and a cat. The whole process was quick, easy and personal.  It was a delight to deal with Emma.  All the portraits were beautifully drawn in pencil and capture our pet's personalities perfectly. Emma's attention to detail is second to none and  each drawing picks out our pets unique markings impeccably. They have pride of place in our living room. We could't recommend Emma enough and we wish her every success."
