The cat is very successful, you knew transcribe his expression of curiosity.
In addition, we clearly see the fur, we say a photograph! One can easily guess the softness of fur. His eyes have nice colors (it seems like amber).
However, I think the background is a bit monotonous, you may have to add some details of another color to "settle" a bit (for exemple you can paint green leaves). And the red part of the cat's head is "masked" by the color of the background.
Otherwise congratulations again for your work, it's a nice work for a nice cat!

Meow. I love this cat. I know one just like this one I've deemed "Tobey."
Thank you for posting this, the work is well done. The colors are right, and the realism is well executed.

Beautiful, I love the background! It's great when people mix different sources. The cat is really pretty and looks so realistic! Lovely colours and shiny eyes!
The circle around the cat's head looks quite modern to me and the golden shapes in the back part make me think of Klimt :)
I think it's good as it is and definitely doesn't need any more pattern over the copper part. The cat gives enough detail and I think it's better not to distract the eye from it :)

AstridBruning Featured By Owner Jan 12, 2013
thankyou very much for such a detailed comment. I love Klimt and have been influenced by his work. I am pleased to read that you think it is finished and I had similar thoughts that anything else may distract. I did try some things but copper leafed over the top. thanks again, I may frame it now (after much internal conflict):iconcatdanceplz::iconleartistplz:

Mattise is a magnificent cat.He looks so proud...and fearless!!How beautiful he is!I love how you've made his white fur ripple!!

thanks Tricia, but this is Clawed (Mattise has long gone and was a grey and white cat, but I did paint him as many colours which may be causing the confusion) Claude is a gentle scaredy cat, but can hiss at me if I do something that annoys him. He can look fearless when he is safe inside with me, runs as soon as there is a knock on the door. He has beautiful soft fur but it sheds and sticks every where. He loves having the house to himself ( he is no. 1 now ).....:heart::iconfancycatplz:

Oh Astrid!Of course it's Clawed:D.....He sounds like Ruby ...the other cat from next door...she is a Burmese...and runs out if she hears you breathing:D....BUT ..if I'm feeding Tigger chicken she doesn't run away then!:iconsendchickensoupplz:
He must love having you to himself!!!

He's very iconographic here, kind of reminds me of Klimt's gold leaf work. :) The juxtaposition of the stylized elements with the realism of the cat works really well in your piece.

I love Klimts work and did look for some inspiration there, I still feel its unfinished and may introduce an art nouveau element and eleborate on the halo effect. Thanks for your comment. :icongingercatplz::iconorangesparklesplz:
