What was your source for this piece? Other Tell us a little more about your inspiration. A photo of my brother's cat. What type of piece is this? Painting Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this piece. After taking several photos of Hello Kitty, I cropped the photo to include mostly his head. I then drew him onto a 12 x 12 canvas. Using acrylic paint I then started painting his nose and moving up to his eyes. Once the eyes were in I filled in the rest of the head and body. This painting was sealed with three coats of gloss varnish. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Start with a very good photo in order to get realistic colors of the fur.
