Saw a similar photo on tumblr and thought it'd be a great excuse to try out some new texture brushes!

This took longer than it probably should have.
I don't think I possess the ability to speedpaint.

Also, the feline uprising has my full support, of course. ~

You could use a little work on perspective. THe cat perspective looks great, but the wood kind of looks like it was just placed behind the cat. When you have straight-lined things, such as buildings, sidewalks, roads, and wooden floors, you need to have a vanishing point, to which everything is angled and steadily gets smaller. Even if you can't see the vanishing point in the piece, all of your straight lines need to look like they'd eventually meet and go in the same general direction.

I know it's a bit hard to understand with just words, and you really need to see the process, so I've found you a tutorial that looks really good if you ask me. [link] My art teacher taught me this, so it was a bit easier I guess. =/

Sorry I didn't say anything earlier. I haven't had a lot of time lately.

The textures look VERY nice, you just need to make the cat look like it's a little bit more a part of the background in some areas. But it's really good, especially considering you're self taught. =D

Firstly, thanks so much for taking the time to critique! I really appreciate it. :D
Even though this was meant to be a painting exercise more than a serious piece, it's nice to hear some ways I could improve. :aww:

With the background, I did try and go for that effect - I just tried to not make it too apparent as the point of view is supposed to be looking down slightly, y'know? I see how I could have emphasised the perspective, though. c:

Thanks again!

Amazing :heart:

Any chance you make commissions?
Looking for some good artist that can draw my cats.
Love to see a painting on my wall with them on.

Thank you!
And I'd definitely say yes, but there's two things:

1. For this style, I'd need a really clear reference photo I could paint from.
2. I could only do it for USD (or the equivalent via PayPal) due to how busy I am. ^^;

Thanks for the interest! (:

It's referenced (quite heavily I'll admit) off a real cat, but it's not a photo or anything. ^__^
