Summer Days by kokamo77 Summer Days by kokamo77
Sorry about the lame title! :XD: But going by the simple green grass and blue sky background, it looks like summer. I wonder if I could have made the background any simpler! :lmao:

I really hate to submit something before ridding my inbox of messages, but anyway... This is Hope! :dance: She is ~darkwonder02 's cat. :D I think she is a very pretty cat! I hope I did her justice. :nod: And I hope I got her markings right! :D

I need to work on fur! :faint: Not the best.... but that's why I need to work on it. :shrug: Since I'm not sure really what to do with fur, I'll ask for critique on this one. :D And her head is a little big, but I was trying to make her look cute, since when I draw her, it's harder to make her as cute as she is in real life.

Well, that's all I have to say! :la:
Enjoy and have a great day ;)

Hope :icondarkwonder02:
I got the pose from my cat, Chester :aww:

Other butterflies are old brushes referenced from a stock image
Grass brushes by me :)
Whole thing is by me actually... :giggle:


Note: These clouds were REALLY fun cause of the new GIMP! :D

Hi there! first off, this is an amazing peice, and this pose is a hard one!! the first thing that I noticed is that the cat's head is a little bit big. (just a little though) The paws and legs are great, but the paws could be a TAD bit bigger. Hmmmmm, trying to think of what else... the tail is a little strange. cat tails DO bend that way, but due to the composition of the piece, the tail should be up.shading and markings are epic, and i love her bright expressive eyes. you did a fantastic job, its really hard to critique! i hope you think its fair. :D

Okay as I like to say at the start of my critiques sorry if any of this makes you sad... and sorry for the spelling errors (I'm french and I suck at french and English!!!)


Vision...! AMAZING!!! Your artwork is always amazing!!!

Originality...! Original enough....

Technique...! Great job I can't see any anatomy errors!!!

Impact...! I LOVE the facial expression!!!

Other...! I LOVE THIS!!! I can't draw cats but I really want to!!! Grass, butterfly's, cat, sky, patches of dirt I LOVE IT ALL!!! but one other thing try making your backgrounds a little more lively!! a tree or even a little flower patch would be BEAUTIFUL in this picture!!!

I think that's it and I hope it helps!!

since I'm not a blasted member :shakefist: I can't leave a critique but I'll say this is the cutest pic ever, and you amaze me that you only use a mouse! My mouse horse pics look like they went through a washing machine :XD: love this great job, but it would have looked better with a flower or two but this is awsome great job! BIG fAN!

yeah. i like clouds with 6.7!

i've been trying to draw cats digitally for AGES, cuz they're one of my fave animals, and i have 2. But my cats suck butt.

:D Have you tried cats traditionally? It's easier to draw something digital if you get it down traditional first. :D

Oooooo I love her! You did an amazing job! Everything is perfect :heart: It's especially neat because earlier today she was chasing butterflies xD

I showed it to my brother, who takes a lot of pride in Hopes torn ear, and he said the first thing he looked for was that. When he saw that he did that little "cha-ching" arm move thingy and said "Yes! She got the cuts!" x3 You now have the admiration of my older brother.

Awesome job, I love it sooooo much!
