Cat in the Kitchen

Well, this is my latest project:
It started back in November with a very common scene from our cat sitting over kitchen´s balcony.
I quickly captured the scene with an ordinary cellphone camera and did some preliminary sketches:

Over the Rainbow...


This year I decided to dedicate more time to drawing, specially the figure and faces. I started a new sketchbook exclusively for that. In the meantime, I'm trying to foster likeliness into portrait drawing.
This sketch was based on a famous Judy Garland picture taken in 1939.


Here is the final piece:
