    I love the cat.

    Siamese cats come from Siam which is now called Thailand. Usually they are a bit sassy, not very suitable for children ( I may be wrong ) Another cat from Thailand is a korat they are known for their emerald coloured eyes, emerald is very important in Thailand. They also are given as gifts in weddings, they are a nice blue colour which is very pretty. They get loud too so to Siamese cats *Siamese cats can fricking cry like a human baby*

    -keep in mind I'm from America and the korat one is more accurate than the Siamese as I have ine-

    Btw I used one of those brushes before. You are suppose to add water in the paint. Also the paint and brush isn’t really for drawing. It is used for writing. Back then, many places used that for writing. Also horse hair isn’t the best type of hair for a brush, so that’s why it wasn’t the best texture, and when you are finish with the paint I wouldn’t recommend just throwing it away. I would recommend keeping it and next time just add a little water into it. One last thing. I LOVED on how you used the ink. It looks so good!!! I would’ve never thought of using it that way. The cat also looks sooooo realistic

    Idk if you are aware at this point 9 months later, but Chinese calligraphy/sumi ink brushes are commonly made out of wolf or goat hair. the japanese ones are made out of more things but that one you have there is chinese and is horse hair bc goat hair as wolf hair is more expensive. The little "loopy" is because placing brushes upside down after they are wet warps the brush including more modern western brushes but also placing them on the bristle ruins the shape so you hang them to dry. Also depending on the paper you are using will highly affect the drying process of the sumi, like wise will also affect feathering and bleeding also. I have found that oil paper or water color paper that is thick. Sumi is su mi すみ/墨 also known as sumi egawa so thats where the sumi e comes from but you just call it sumi. im both learning japanese and also a mixed media artist and I use both chinese and japanese sumi. In Japan it is primarily made with pine soot when its natural but can also be synthetically created as well. Most production is in Nara japan, which is also where Kurtake and other japanese ink/pen companies are.

    We Chinese people uses the traditional brush and the ink to do something called "书法"
    We write Chinese words with those brushes and ink every Chinese New Year at our school
    The brush size and how thick the brushes wood would change based on what level you are or how old you are too
    It's pretty hard to write and learn if you ask me ;-;

    I went to a Chinese-Catholic school (I live in the Philippines) and we used that long brush to make Chinese characters. As far as I can remember the only fingers that come in contact with the brush are the the thumb, index, and the middle fingers. I just wanted to tell you and I'm sorry if this comes out a little rude to you. 😢

    Your drawing kinda reminds me of a book that I had as a kid. It was about a cat that was white and then knocked over a little pot of ink and got it all over itself. It was a take on how the first Siamese cat was created. I love your art by the way. The style is very cartoon like but still realistic and I like how you successfully took those two things and made them work together.
