Inktober #8: Wrinkly Cheshire


10 October 2014 at 14:36:42 MDT

My contribution for Inktober from Wednesday. Had the sudden and very strong urge to draw a sphinx cat-inspired Cheshire thing that also happens to have ears from the American curl cat breed. Nothing to see here, just an adorable disappearing buck-toothed wrinkle cat.

Done with Staedtler pigment liners and black ballpoint on smooth bristol (this stuff is the best; I want more.).

    Oh it's so cute it needs to disappear and then reappear right in my lap so I may give it the pets that it deserves. I would adopt five of these.

      Yeah I'm with you there. I need dis.

    Whoacrap those markings are awesome. The Sphynx and American Curl is an interesting hybridisation as well, nicely done~

      I was trying to make the stripes look reminiscent of smoke, and I do so love swirly patterns. Honestly I couldn't say how plausible a sphinx with curled ears would be in real life but I liked how it looked and it's fantasy anyway haha. It's kind of fun to mesh the features of different cat breeds to make something really out there...

    Sphinxes are the cat breeds I adore the most. Seeing a Sphinx who has an apparently demoniacal allure certainly melts my heart! Wonderful job here!

      Same here. They have such variable personalities and are incredibly smart, along with the bizarre and endearing hairless mutation. I've considered revisiting this concept and perhaps making this individual a recurring face in my Uncanny Hosts setting I like it so much. Thank you!
