This is a very beautiful piece, the rendering of the fawns is amazing and the colors are brilliant. The values of the first fawn are very well done and give it a very realistic representation. In my opinion the second fawn should have some deeper shadows beneath the neck and in the crook of the leg to keep it from looking slightly flat.
Originality wise, well I had to take off a few stars because it was based off of your friend's portrait. Nothing against the piece itself.
What emotion did you want to portray to the audience? The closeness of the fawns? If so, I think there should be some slightly warmer colors in the background. Bring out the yellows and oranges. Personally, I like to use colors from the focal point of the piece throughout the background to tie the piece together but that's just a personal opinion.
Overall this piece is very well executed, and your rendering is phenomenal. Keep up the good work!

JulianasGrandma Featured By Owner Jul 3, 2012
They are both from the same litter. The black one (Casey) looks like the male and the white/brown one(Murphy) looks like the female. Murphy is a mix of Himalayan and Ragdoll, Casey I just say is a mix of gentle and loving. The people we got them from couldn't tell me what mix Casey is since the male is not their cat.

Casey in this shot looks like my dark chocolate Burmese(Rembrandt), and Murphy has those beautiful tips/points like a siamese. I had a choc point siamese (Jezabelle) and the cross of Siamese/Burmese produces Tonkinese which look similar to Murphy. They only had one litter due to complications but they were so beautiful. :iconcreyk:

Yes, I agree the cats you mentioned are beautiful. It is possible that Casey is a Burmese, I will have to do more research on it. Have a wonderful day:hug:
