*aww* Beautiful picture. I love your coloration, it reminds me of a childrens book picture. :D
And I love the inside of the room, it just adds to the feeling of a home. :D If that makes sense... ._.

The colors, the details, the way the light plays off the window, the way you made the indoors and outdoors two separate worlds that come to meet at the sliding glass door at Fester's paws.. I don't even know what else to say. This is absolutely beautiful... I'm sure it was very therapeutic for Fester's owner. May he have peace.

This is just SO beautiful; the mood is so golden and happy; I hope it lifts the owner's spirits, people often underestimate how much the loss of an animal friend can affect you! :heart:
Gorgeous job! :love:

I think this is your best digital colouring to date 8D it's amazing! The cat is so cuuuuuuute, and I really like the texture on him and the branches. Is that a brush or a texture overlay?

FlannMoriath Featured By Owner Jun 19, 2012
Thank you so much! :) I discovered that Photoshop has a lot more brushes than just the default ones... so I used them to make textures. :D

The colours go great with the "departure of a loved one" theme. I love the cats expression as well :D

Abgesehen davon, dass ich die Pfoten hier ein wenig groß geraten finde, mag ich deine Katzen-Anatomie total gern.
Vor allem die Kopfform wirkt sehr realistisch und die Augen strahlen geradezu vor Leben.
Ich steh drauf. °//°
Ich hätte Fester's coloration eventuell noch ein wenig heller gestaltet, da er ja hinter der Scheibe hockt~
Ansonsten harmoniert hier alles sehr schön mit einander.
Man sieht dem Guten wirklich an, wie sehr er nach dem Eichhörnchen giert. xD

Ahhhh Vielen, vielen Dank für die Kritik unds Feedback! :D Am Anfang war Fester's coloration heller, aber der Käufer wünscht sich, dass es sehr dunkler wäre. Sie haben recht über Die Pfoten, glaube ich. :meow: Dankeschön!!

Tut mir leid für mienes Deutsch... es ist nicht meine Muttersprache. XD

I love the detail of the inside of the house. When I was checking my watch list I thought this was a photo at first!

Poor dog, having to watch the squirrel through the window & not allowed to go outside & chase it. :(

I know it's a dog because you only draw dogs. Even if some of them look weird like the dogs with antlers, dogs with scales, dogs with long tails that always land on their feet, dogs with bushy tails in trees, and the dogs with long floppy ears.
