The Cat by Renilicious The Cat by Renilicious
This is "The Cat", for want of a better name. Not at all how I was hoping it would turn out. I got a bit lost with it once I finished the actual cat bit. Lots of over-painting on the cat, lots and lots, and I had to redo the eyes from scratch because the shading on them was all wrong. It's a pity you can't really see the detail because the actual size of the face alone takes up most of my monitor workspace - and I've got a 19" 1280x1024 monitor resolution. So, yeah. Big. I tried to paint in some grass but I gave that up as soon as I remembered that I cannot draw at all. Hell, it took me two days to overpaint the cat.

I consider this the first version of this image - very unfinished though I wanted some feedback which is why I've posted it. I need to put something a little more substantial where the orbs are and do... something to it.

Note: This will not be available as a print due to rules set by =resurgere and `wroth (the original photographer of the background image). I will be doing a new version that will be, however, with stock that I know will be allowed to be used in prints. ;)

Green and Cat = probably something I'll love, and love this one I do. Nothing stands out, unfortunantly, so this wont be a real helpful comment, but the image is peaceful and realistic looking and so I'm enjoying it immensly.

*LOL* There's a couple things that I need to tweak, but they'll be minor. I guess I'll just put up a new version rather than change this one. ;) Thanks hon!

*falls over dead seeing the most amazing piece of his life*

i would SO buy this as a print.. i love it.. only one thing i can think of touching up on it, they eyes look too shallow, maybe a little bit darker near the top to add shine and depth.. but this is your maa-velous creation, and it doesnt need to be fixed :hug: amazing..

Im SOOOO glad you decided to stay at DA :hug:

Aww, I hope you feel better soon. But thanks, Sue. Glad you like it. :hug: I think the cat in the picture is at that very young, just-out-of-kitten stage and I remember my furkids being all gangly and big-eared like that a couple years back.

Thank you. I picked that particular picture because of the fact that the cat seemed to be skinny, but had such a beautiful face. :) I think it's just a young cat - they're always a bit gangly and long when they're just out of kitten stage.
