Black Cat by Bolbec Black Cat by Bolbec
A black cat, sort of in the Halloween mood.

I will make this clear... it's NOT a RAT!! I can't even begin to tell you how many people thought it was a rat. :(

This is basically my second drawing I've ever done in pen and ink, so please don't be too hard on me ;) Thanks for taking a look at my art :D

This is made as a contest entry for :iconcreation-inspiration:'s Halloween contest

This was also made for the Halloween contest that's being hosted by Chyriel!

Looks like a cat to me...I just think the ear is a little small even with distance perspective. But I like it alot.
I think Rats have longer pointier noses...so why would anyone think it's a rat?

I knew it was a cat from the start! He has that same stare-into-space gaze you captured very well.

Awww.... haha thanks though. And yeah, I suppose you could say that, I just wanted to try something other than pencil, since I use pencil so much. Basically it was an experiment to see how well I would do ;P
