Hi look what I found in my old pictures on Facebook... sta.sh/0kl2cmckx54 I just downloaded this as this was uploaded March 2012 on my FB.
I think I told you before that I had an similar picture of an Xenomorph and an cat but I have no idea if this idea came from your picture here... But I think it must have come, It's not often you maybe draw an cat an xenomorth together.
This is just incredible! I LOVE the colors on this one. The textures on the alien, the cat (even the background are) perfect. And despite the alien being a horror figure, this illustration brings about a sense of happiness and peace that is just inexplicable.
I also love how the ground is so 'normal', something you would see on Earth, and the sky seems very alien. Very nice way of blending to the two 'worlds' together
I can't stop staring at all of the detail and texture, especially on that alien. *staring* Those purpleish-blues work perfectly, I like how you did that instead of going with the traditional black or brown for the alien
Overall, this is an amazing piece and I thank you very much for taking the time to create it It is amazing and you should be VERY proud of it
As I look at all of the entries, I want to cry because they're all so good! D: This contest will be a difficult one to judge.
The pleasure was absolutely mine. I'm sorry for your loss, I've lost a few feline friends myself over the course of my life and it's never easy. I'm just glad that I could pay tribute to what looks like a fine feline, and hopefully this helps you through the healing process.
