This was an old commission I did for a lady who works at a local cat shelter. She wanted me to draw the place's mascot; a cat named Seamus who was missing his eye and a few toes on his one back paw.
She showed me a specific image that she wanted me to mimic as far as the pose goes.
His paw is lifted to have a little logo to be placed under it.

I liked this image because it just is 'bright' and peppy compared to the stuff I normally do (which is usually humdrum and dark). Turned out ok and the commissioner was pleased so... it's reposted in the dA gallery.


I'll probably be rebuilding my dA gallery a bit more over the next week or so with some older artwork I deem worthy to be put back. Been doing that anyway but in case you're wondering why a bunch of images you've seen already are back in your inbox... now you know why.
I'm not drawing anything new that I can post so sorry, 'new' art will be rare for various reasons.





Paint Tool SAI

**Yes, this drawing is referenced but it was asked for. I can't find the exact image I was handed but I'm sure it's out there. I'll keep looking for it but considering it's only the pose it's not that big a deal anyway. Still, it is important to say this image was referenced.

THIS IMAGE IS A COMMISSIONED PIECE, MEANING SOMEONE PAID FOR IT SPECIFICALLY. IT IS NOT TO BE USED, SOLD, RENDERED, EDITED, OR REDISTRIBUTED IN ANY WAY! NO EXCEPTIONS!

They may have used the same stock reference I did actually. The person who commissioned me for this had a specific pose they wanted so I went with it from the image they provided. So it's likely they used the same one :)

It reminds me of Brightheart, from Warriors.

Very pretty at that. Great work

That's who I thought it was, before I noticed his eye was actually amber. Also he has his entire face. :3

I agree with ~MrsMcgordan, he looks like Brightheart, sans dog-chewed face.

I remember this one from a while ago! I love it, too. I think it's one of my favorites of yours, probably because I love how you shaded the fur and I love how you colored the fur design. I don't think you normally color it like this. Like.. The darker flecks on his shoulder and leg are sort of blended, which is something you don't normally do. I don't think it's something you normally do, at least. But I like how it turned out a lot. I just think everything here turned out good in general! (I've always admired how you shade your fur and tried to do it similar to yours, but I can never do it right!) :XD: And sorry about the text wall..
