Re: No Escape


"Noooo, I thought cats hated water! There is no escaping these mischievous, pawing creatures! I shoulda been a ninja. Then at least the cats wouldn't be able to see me." >_<;

This was an idea I had a long time ago. I finally got the perfect chance to submit for your approval ^_^. Also here is a close up of the image so you can better see how things are laying about.

Enjoy!

I am simultaneously weirded out by the cats (I think it's the body-tail) yet find them INCREDIBLY adorable.

So +1!

Re: No Escape


Thanks so much for the comments everyone! I've sat on this idea for a long, long while now. Im really glad to have a derby that it finally fits into ok. ^_^

I've been practicing a bit more with shading thanks to a few helpful artists here. Im usually super scared of halftones, but Im trying to face the monster that they are and best them. I sure appreciate the positive feedback! :D

Oh I expect some of those comments for sure, heh. I really do draw stuff other than rodents! Just lately it's been more common for me. Sort of. -hides my shame-

Nothing better than a snuggly pair of ratties on your shoulder! I'm always psyched to see them in your designs.

The cat fish are simultaneously creepy, cute, and captivating.

I especially like the mouse's prehensile tail.

Nicely done!

I may not be the world's biggest fan of felines on fashion but am very impressed at the work that's gone into this. Thanks for supplying the closeup view bass. There's a lot of neat design flourishes to appreciate.
