Ah! You've read her comic too? >w< I just find it so beautiful how she uses red wine to color her tiger and any reds or sandy browns within the image. And this picture is quite the gift! It's so beautiful!

O_O this is amazing! the way you painted the fur... it makes it look all soft and alive. and the eyes look so natural. when i attempt realism it looks like i stuck the eye on with glue or something, haha xD the texture is cool,and i love your sense of anatomy! i've been watching you for a while now, and you keep posting eye treats, so i thought i'd give a good comment :3

keep up the great work!

Oh, Akeli, this is absolutely incredible!! :o

Thank you so much for doing this for me. I just adore the characters. Linan's fur especially is so detailed and soft-looking. It looks almost real enough to reach out and touch. I love the way that he is posed protectively around his little rat friend. His expression is just absolutely haunting, part contentment and part self-assured. And I have to say that your big cat anatomy is just fantastic (I'm jealous), especially the chest and the squishy feet. Ha ha, no one seems to realize just how mushy their paws are! Jeckle is very well done, too. They have unusual anatomy (compared to cats and dogs), and I think that you got it spot on. She seems pensive compared to the more assertive pose of the tiger, which fits their personality perfectly. I appreciate that you included the little ring as well!

I don't even know where to start on how beautiful that background is. All of the little details in it. I swear I stared at it for ten minutes, and I was still finding new things to ogle and enjoy. The cement/stone and rusty metal textures in particular are very realistic. I can almost feel the chill of the water and the coolness of the stone slab. And I am totally in love with that clock face.

Thank you again! :iconspazhugplz: I can't wait to print this out and hang it up. It's even going to get its own matte and frame.

...you should announce when you're livestreaming, you know? I feel lonely when I don't know about things like that. :[

I usually don't comment on commission pieces, but I love the bandage and the water-liquid-solid effects. Really nicely done. ~<3 Is it all by hand or did you use textures or programmed effects for some of it?

I noticed after I replied that I had a journal in my inbox. Whoops. >->; Jumping the gun again; my bad. I was probably asleep when you were streaming anyway, from the looks of the time stamp.

Sorry and thanks. X]

No worries though X3 I think that ':/' probably came off as different than I meant it XD More that I was sad that I couldn't post my streams earlier. :XD:

Aha, it's fine. We're probably in different time zones, so I most likely would have been asleep anyway.

I love Pull Down Heaven. I love how realistic they look 8D Only, the left paw (her right) looks kinda wonky, I feel like it would just be better to have it hanging down with the other paw. -shrug- I like the stream of slime/waste though 8D
