wow guys, thank you so much for the overwhelming number of comments and faves on this image! i promise i'm reading each one (with a giddy smile plastered on my face) and i'll try to address as many as i can.

I started this drawing after I returned from Japan, early this year. I've been busy with both school and work though, but I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out nevertheless. I hope you like! :D

Comments and critiques are most welcome.

I can't help but think that the girl/young woman is a witch and her familiar's real form is that but it usually looks like a white cat

I keep thinking that it reminds me of a scene in Spirited Away.

still think this is one of the best drawings/paintings i've seen in years.
the story that Jinggo78 started back in july of 2011 would make an
excellent basis for a graphic novel...i know if i saw this as a cover of
such a book, i'd buy it...along with the whole series. this image evokes
so many tangents in my brain that i'll have to post my own follow up to
this one.

What a fantastic creature! The expression in it's eyes is mischievous, wise and a little feral all at once. It's hands are brilliant as well, and I would love to have a pet like this. The way I see it is that the creature is the girl's guardian spirit who protects her from malevolent beasties even if she doesn't know it. :w00t:
