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.

This would be the closest I've got to a semi-realistic digital picture:

And I will thankyou! When I get around to trying it out I'd love your advice to improve :)

Also, may I ask how long something of this kind of detail takes to complete?
