Cheetah Again! (And revisited)

Above is the second commissioned piece featuring Cheetah getting the magic lasso treatment from an off-stage woman of wonder. And below is the redrawn and re-inked Cheetah from yesterday. I completely vegged out and forgot the ears on that one. I had drawn them in the pencil version but after several martinis with martini chasers, I inked right over them without a second thought. Gordon was great about it but I felt I didn't do the job right and I told him I would redo it. Both pieces are ink on 11" x 17" Canson Bristol Board. Thanks again Gordon for the commissions!
And I was only kidding about the martinis. I only drink Absolut Citron Vodka on the rocks when I ink. :)

Wow, both of these pieces are great and I hope they are good inspiration for the Valerie commission that is coming up (and remember, all of the Pussycats had cat ears too!).

Well done!

Thanks Gary. I shouldn't forget Val's ears, they are mentioned in the theme song, which runs in a continuous loop in my head when I draw them. :)

"Ears" to the Martinis and the purty ears!
