A very sketchy linework of Vera the Langurhali, a species I made that most of my watchers might know about, but for those of you who don't, no they're not actually monkeys. I looked up "long-tailed creature' in latin a while back, and it had come up with 'langur hali vera', but now when I search it, it says 'monkey beginning truth' o.O; I really need to read up on my Latin
Regardless of the flaws on her and the species I made, and all the people who think theyre tacky/generic/excessive, I am happy with her... tacky hair, excessively large ears and tail, chubbiness and all... and I'm not going to stop drawing any time soon In fact I'm working on a comic of sorts, with a villain and all, the corniness abounds, and that's just the way I like it. Colored soon youbetcha.
These are Vera's pets... nameless for now... they are based on a dream I had, of an old cat... a fat cat.. a young cat... a cuddly cat and two cats in love. I'm still not sure what they represented in the dream but this is as close to how they looked as I can remember. Vera was wearing this really awesome fur cloak as well...
I hardly ever submit lineworks other than to scraps but I figure I won't get around to coloring this for quite a while (before you ask)
*EDIT* of course... The Old Cat... Represents the wisdom that comes with age... I think she would be the part of me that I use for decisions, the mental state I try to be in when someone is depending on me to be helpful and wise. The Fat Cat... He is like my contentment... my security... my strength. The Young Cat... I look to this little one to be reminded of my youth and childlike honesty and trust in others. The Cuddly Cat... For when I can't be wise and strong... for when I am feeling potentially vulnerable and weak, my little cuddly ball of love and warmth to snuggle up to and get me on my feet again... The Couple... The love I feel for friends, family and most importantly God and my husband... this couple reminds me of what it's like to love in the most natural, honest and beautiful way... the instinctual love of feline soulmates.
