Spice by AmandaTurnage Spice by AmandaTurnage
A sketch commission for :iconhelloheath: !
It is of her little ghost kitty named Spice in a moment from her story. He's so cute I wanna squish him! I felt like drawing a kitten today so that's why I jumped out of order in my list of commissions. Sorry ~oliviamaxwell !! Yours will be next and it'll be awesome I promise! :)

I had fun with this one. It was challenging because I haven't drawn kittens since that one time but I think I did better this time! Spice looks all fat, fuzzy and kitten-y. This also helped me a bit with angles and lighting and reflective surfaces. I always need help with that stuff.. >_>

I hope you like it *helloheath ! Thanks for being so patient! :hug:
:heart:

Spice belongs to *helloheath
artwork by me.

you got all this from one comission? geez, theres atleast two full drawings in there.

what i love about this is how you put some many small items for greater detail, like the leaves and textures on the birdbath that give it a real feel to it.

So pretty and the kitten is so cute! Just out of curiosity, is the face reflected in the water supposed to be the ghost cat's (like there's a person in the cat) or is there a person in the basin. Or maybe I'm totally looking at the picture wrong?

hey! im helloheath the person who commissioned this. to answer your question a little more specifically the person in the reflection is Nema, queen of a kingdom under siege in another world.

In that world animals and humans co-exist peacefully, the humans taught animals how to speak and build things and the animals taught the humans how to fly and use the elements of the planet.

Nema and her sister Jacandy are twin sisters but nema is next in line for the throne, they are actually lion like creatures. i didnt expect the extra angle otherwise i would have let ArmadaRyu know but i like seeing her with a human face too actually ^^

aaaanyway, to make a long story short, Jacandy rebels and drives the humans out of the kingdom, kills her mother by mistake, and helps her friend take over the throne. she also banishes the humans to a place called "earth". Nema now must call upon the guardian of life "spice" (the kitten) to recover the lost humans to bring balance to their destroyed world. spice dies as a baby but can survive because of his guardian status, even though he was born on earth.

i have not written the story yet, but im writing the outlines for it and plan to post it on here. sorry if this was long winded 0_0

No, no, thanks so much for explaining! That sounds like an interesting story that I am looking forward to reading when it gets posted. The picture was so well done, that I wanted to know the story, but then couldn't find it. I can't wait. I hope Amanda and you can collaborate on some more images from the story. I'm sure the 'alternate world' looks amazing (although destroyed at the time of the story).

According to *helloheath Spice is looking in the water when a face appears. I don't know much about her story but I don't think it's anyone within the cat but a different entity all together. :) I hope that makes sense. Drawing water with multiple reflections and floating faces is hard. :P

No that makes sense. I had no idea where to find the story, so I figured you were the best person to ask. And the face in the water with the cat's reflection looks great! I just thought that maybe I was having a moment of seeing something that wasn't there (like there were twigs or other stuff in the water).
