Night

Cat_moon
Some of you may have seen this before. It was done recently for a book cover that is yet to be published. It's all Photoshop, save for the initial sketch which was good 'ol pencil and paper. The big blank spot on the moon is for the title.

I think you showed me the beginning of this wonderous cat.... the end result is wonderful. I especially like the technique you used to create the tabby fur.

That cat looks like it's planning something... very atmospheric, and reminds me of how I felt about night when I was a kid - as if something unexpected might happen - nervous anticipation...
