‘August Eyes’

I haven’t been doing many digital paintings with Adobe Illustrator lately…until recently that is. I am inspired by the various cats that occupy my chosen college, Pratt Institute: Brooklyn Campus

Here are Spotty and Pistachio exchanging a cute peck of the nose before grunting their disgust.

This is the reference photo:

I decided to emphasize on the peridot green eyes and various shades almost naked to the eye in the pitch black ebony fur.

The shaggy mane reminds me a bit of a lion’s mane; so pearly and silky!

I chose not to add more highlights or shadows upon the splotches of shadows in order to fully sharpen up the images of the rosy border.

The star shaped blended backdrop is meant to bring out the other parts of the scenery and complement my chosen colors for my typed signature:

My ears are pointy and twitching; eagerly anticipating some unique commissions for door signs/posters. I just need to set up my payment info…..
