I know, this is cheating. I have used a photo sent to me by a friend of her cat to practice my Procreate tools on my iPad. This is Kizzy, or at least the dreamlike Kizzy I manifested from the original. I recreated some of the background to give her more room in her setting, and greatly expanded her coat, using the tints Procreate said were already going on in the photo... I just exaggerated them a bit! The last challenge was the lit eye. In the photo, it was all but washed out, so I recreated it, from a description my friend gave me of it on the phone.
This beats doodling any day.
