70 (who?)

Hmm. Started as a focus on eyes, ended as a focus on the fur. Makes me a bit sad that I went and made it all mystical and transparent, it definitely loses something. But I left the edges all gross and blank so I couldn't. But here's a shot of the solid fur if anyone wanted to check it out. [link]

Ugh, I haven't had any energy to do anything lately. I've been so sick for a week now and its really starting to take its toll. And on top of that, my ears are really beginning to ache, despite the meds I got put on yesterday to prevent an infection. My head, ears in particular, are so plugged up that at times I can hardly hear. Its starting to get really bad and the radio is sounding a little wonky.

Hrrm. Really pleased with this. But I had to force myself to finish it. Lately I feel absolutely no desire to paint digitally. My brain screams "WATERCOLOURS" instead of digital. No idea why I want to use watercolours so much lately. Maybe later when I have enough energy. My joints still feel like jello.

'Kay, I love that fur. <3

Comments and critiques appreciated!

Time to sew.

Aaaaah, eyes. So good. xD Wonderful bodyparts. To both look at and draw. Or look at drawings of. I guess this'd be an example of the eyecolour you'd like to have? without the fur of course, that would be a bit too freaky

I love it how you made iris so realistic. And the moon that's mirrored into the eye is really cool too. I stared at it for pretty some time. It's almost hypnotizing. Great job!

Eyes are wonderful. You can learn so much about a person just by watching their eyes.
I love drawing and painting them because you can do so much with them. Whether it be emotion, colour or lighting, the possibilities are endless.

My, wouldn't that make for a strange looking human eye. Would be awesome!
Though if I had the choice to make my eye colour anything, it wouldn't be that. For some reason I'm particularly fond of a solid lavender with darker purple accents. Nothing multicoloured, and I'm not sure why I even feel so strongly towards that one particular colour.
I've never actually painted them but I guess I should. I'll put that on my huge to-do list.

YAY INACTIVITY *crashes through wall* RAWWWRRRR

Your amazing detail and skill with eyes never seizes to amaze me x3
Amazing stuff! Love all the detail and individual furs you can see, and even the reflection in the eye, thats always hard to pull off but you did a really good job here! In a way it adds a whole lotta depth to the picture :] Celestial themes are always cool, and I agree as one person said, it'd make a kickass poster! >:3
This is just incredible...the fur is amazing and I could stare into that reflection forever...just wow.
