YEAH OKAY. I was feeling pretty good about this until I scanned it [though I just rescanned and changed some stuff and now it is betters]. I was working on this in October before midterms exploded my brain, and I just did the background and some more details tonight. Basically, I was trying to do something compositionally interesting.

I'm content with it except for the eyes. Cats have that thick cornea that lets you see right through their eyeballs from the side. This character is looking over his/her shoulder but the white of the eye isn't visible enough in contrast to the cornea so it looks like he/she is staring INTENTLY ahead. >.< IT CREEPS ME OUT. /end long description

Kind of part of an art trade with Delumier. She gave me three characters to chose from and I liked them all. :XD:

Brush pen and ink, acrylic, Prismacolor markers and pencils.
Thunder is :icondelumier:'s character.

Edit 2: Nevermind about the rescan - I saw this on a different monitor and it looked fine, sooo... lol. Sorry if it gets sent to everyone's messages again - I guess the minor update thing is only for subscription. D: Also, this was my 200th deviantion! Yeah!

XD I still have deviations in my box from at least 6 months ago so I'm not that surprised I missed it. I only saw it because I was searching for work of my fursona on dA and she has the same name as my account so a lot of stuff people do as gifts shows up xD

No worries! I'm patient :3
I really like the perspective =) Nice work!

Absolutely awesome job on the background <3! Looks lovely ^0^!

Also, the fur and other details looks really great =)

I see what you mean by the eyeball! You're totally right, I can see how that's difficult to replicate Dx!

Very nice job though! I applaud your traditional skills :clap:
Can't wait to see the rescan. Hope it works.
