Mojo and Babyshoes - Oil Painting Commission



I was recently commissioned by a friend to paint a portrait for his wife's birthday of their two dearly departed kitties, Mojo and Babyshoes. It was a fun portrait to paint, because KITTIES! And I knew these two darling kitties, so painting their little faces was a joy. I tried to capture Babyshoes sweet and curious expression and Mojo's derpy grumpy old man visage as well as I could from the photo that I was given to paint from, and I think I got pretty darn close! Progress photos below.
