Happy January!

Wish I would have finished this last month, it would have made quite the x-mas card :)

Anyways, something fun to start out the new year with! Sorry about the "mature" rating, I hate to do that as I really don't think it's that bad, but DA does say no butts.

multiple refs used for anatomy and lynx kitty.

edit 11/09: I've made this available as a greeting card through DA, so send it on to someone and warm up their holidays! :)

Just took a quick browse through your gallery and wow! Your anatomy and painting skills are incredible :'D And it's nice to see at least ONE artist on dA that has characters that aren't completely waxed of hair hahaha

Honestly, how long does it take you to create something like this???
The entire process...drawing AND painting....there are no words to describe the talent you possess.

ceruleanvii Featured By Owner Aug 28, 2010  Professional Digital Artist
thank you so much, you are too kind - I actually don't do a lot of drawing for these, just some quick sketch lines, and then I jump right into the painting part. It's hard to say how long they take because I never have an uninterrupted stretch of time to work. But I'd guess this one was maybe 40 hours.

SEnigmaticX Featured By Owner Aug 28, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
Yeah, I was thinking somewhere along those lines...I thought maybe even like 48-60 hours.
Very impressive...so worth the time and effort with results like this. Your skills and style do instantly remind me of the great Michaelangelo. Just curious...are you male or female?

You know, in a few years, I might have to send you a donation before printing these out on wax paper for christmas cards <<; probably a big donation. Christmas Cards are expensive here. But not quite yet ^^ *has a broken printer*

Hi! :wave: I really love this painting, especially the contrast between the cool and warm colors. I hope you don't mind, but I kinda stole your idea and painted something very similar -- [link]

If it bugs you in any way just let me know and I can take it down.

All those fine little bright dots on his legs and back, did you paint them in by hand or did you apply them with a filter?

Congrats on the Fantasy Hunks win-and I do adore your work. Fantastic piece here, there is so much underlying tension in the eyes that it can be missed by the relaxed pose he is in. Or...is that me? XD!

Either way, fantastic work!
