Kitty (Better Pictures)

Original post here

Kitty won a high silver at ReaperCon 2018.  Some of the high points the judges pointed out were use of colors in the shadows and the freehand on the pants.  I now know what I need to do to achieve Gold – spend plenty of time on it, ask better painters for advice and humbly accept it, and iterate multiple times.  Many thanks to Cathy Wappel who was seated at my table at ReaperCon 2017 and gave me lots of good suggestions and advice.  Rhonda Bender was also extremely helpful.  Also thanks to the other people at the table (Charity and… Adam?).

Weak points (for my future reference): the gun’s highlights.  Her gloves are too close in color to the guns.  Her hair needs to go all the way (or nearly all the way) to white, in a “halo”.
