Maine Coon Cat on Drafting Film

I decided to do something a bit bigger than ACEO size and go back to drafting film.
This will be approx 10 x 8, coloured pencil and acrylic.
I've been invited to have a stand at the Shropshire Cat Club show at Bingley Hall Stafford in February so I'm going to try to draw some different breeds.

Just beautiful!! I'm itching to do another piece on drafting film too...That substrate is addictive. I think I'm going to do a piece in egg tempera on illustration board first though - the egg tempera medium is addictive too!

Thank you all.

I'd like to try egg tempera.
The background is CP, there are highlights of acrylic in the fur.

I just recently started using colored pencils on drafting film, and have been pretty impressed with it. You seem to have found a winner of a technique/medium for it; congratulations! I've found that watercolor pencils will work on at least one type of matte film, and I'm looking forward to trying acrylics as well. My only concern is adhesion. Have you encountered any problems with that?
