MikomiDarkLightning Commission by Kamirah MikomiDarkLightning Commission by Kamirah
Commission for ~MikomiDarkLightning of her adorable cats.
This is colored with watercolors. I played around a little with this picture in Photoshop and I liked how it turned out. The original colors can be seen here [link]

Well, I really like this. I have cats as well, so that helps ;) I love the 'quaint' Techniques that you've used. The watercolor is really beautiful and the scrappy way it's done is really nice. The kittens expressions are adorable and... I think what I'm getting at is, the way you've used a 'real' background but for the kittens it's totally 'cartoon' if you know what I mean. It messes with your head unless you grasp it, I think.

The calico kitten patterns are lovely in their own right and go well with the setting, as well as their shadows, and the way the sunlight bathes them in a lovely yellow. You also appear (when looking at it) as the one that distracted the kittens, and they're looking at you, which brings you into the painting a lot more.

Overall, I love it, an amazing piece :)
What do you think?

I love it :hug: but I don't think your link at the bottom is working. It said it that the image had been deleted or something.

Åh, va söta! :love: Jag älskar att den vänstra håller upp tassen lite :) Bakgrunden passar också jätebra. Hela bilden påminner lite om Disney

Lovely! I like how the colors aren't perfect, they're a little shaggy, which is how they should be, seeing as how it gives the cats a more furry/realistic look. I love that. Great work, and I can't wait to see more.

I really like the kittens. They are to die for.
The watercolors are fantastic. I like the colors used. I also like that you can still see some drawing lines.
Great job!

Blänket i deras ögon är så oskyldigt att man vill bara krama ihjäl dem! Näh alvarligt talat är du skicklig med akvarellen. Akvarell går endast och slutligen vid ett ord: Tålamod. mycket tålamod.
