It varies a lot depending on how familiar I am with the subject matter, composition and colors.

`loish made a comment that this is slightly more realistic than your norm, yet it fits your style perfectly. I 100% agree, this is a great piece. And next time, when you use my cat as a reference, please ask....

wow, lovely piece! great skin shades. i like how this is more "complete" than most of the headshots in your gallery, more like a photograph (with the cat and background) and with a slightly more realistic touch. works very well with your style! naice!

I love the color choice in this. The eyes really stand out cuz they contrast the rest of it. It's really nicely done.

This is wonderfully candid, you did an excellent job catching their expressions. It looks like they were wrestling or something and somebody said something and now they're just like "huh?" Awesomeness.

may i ask, how many layers did you end up with? and was there a part that you worked on more then others?

thundercake Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2009  Professional Digital Artist
I worked on 1 layer :) I think I probably spent the most time trying to get the cat's face to look not-weird.

I love the fact that her cat looks like President Taft.

The little quirks at the sides of her mouth are really sweet,and I love the way you painted her nose.
The whole thing is very cozy and personable. :)

Yess walleyed cat! I have a whole folder of walleyed cats on my comp for no good reason other than that they're hilarious. Nice warm color, and I like how specifically you render your characters!

Oh GOD, so cute... I like the slight expression of "Help me!" the cat has on its face (or at least that's how I'm seeing it). You rendered the lips and nose so well, and I really like the big eyes here. Incredible work! :)
