Painting of a Friend I: Fireflies by ThreshTheSky Painting of a Friend I: Fireflies by ThreshTheSky
Digital painting of my cat, Sarah. Sometimes you can see lightning bugs out the window of my house. Her expression while watching them is something that has always stuck with me.

This was truly a labor of love. I don't think I've ever spent this long on a digital painting and doubt I will again for a long time.

A tutorial on how I paint fur is posted here.

I would nearly do everything to have a cat like her.
Sadly my dad doesn't like cats and I have to wait until I've moved out.
This is such a gorgeous picture, I could look at this for hours and it never would be boring. :heart:

Does you dad like dogs or is it animals in general that he doesn't like? Many cat breeds that are larger (and fluffy) like Sarah in this picture are quite dog-like in their behavior. They do tricks, greet me at the door when I come home, and always want to be around you. Anyway, I hope you get to adopt the kitty of your dreams some day! :)

And thank you!
