Yay! Koko! OMG, I am so excited about this, even moreso than the humans. LOL! You did a marvelous job working off of my different refs and coming up with Koko's unique look. You can tell this cat has something up his sleeve...er, paw. XD I adore the way you did the notch, and I am just totally in love with his markings. The "M" on his head in particular. Koko was part of the original history of the characters and we debated bringing him back for Relativity, but I'm glad we did. This picture will definitely help inspire us when writing him.
You're very welcome! I probably don't have to tell you since I think it came through in my notes when we were first talking about including a cat with the Relativity paintings. But I was so excited that you decided to introduce Koko!
I've also been meaning to tell you: Many times throughout the past couple weeks, I kept finding myself with the "Kokomo" song stuck in my head but couldn't figure out why. I was working on this painting when it occurred to me that every time we talked about "Koko" or I pulled up his folder, I would subconsciously start thinking about that song and get it stuck in my head.
