2017 Christmas Presents - Mama Cat by AnimeGirlMika 2017 Christmas Presents - Mama Cat by AnimeGirlMika
This was another year wherein I decided to create art as gifts for Christmas.  As with some previous years, I chose an overarching theme that every present would share: for 2017 it was "You as a Cat!"  I had a relatively large gift list so I also went with little ACEOs for the format to ensure I could actually get everything done on time ^^; I'm proud to say I did!  The first present I made was for my husband's mom, whom I dubbed "Mama-chan" long before Sean and I were married.  I actually used a photo I took at Thanksgiving just weeks earlier for the human reference image.  I chose a cat reference photo that seemed to have the same sort of expression.  I made it a light-colored red cat to imitate Mama-chan's hair color.  The idea with all of these cats was to make a more realistic cat version of each person, rather than a cartoony image where the cat has a human haircut and wears glasses and such.  So, while this cat has a tabby pattern, hopefully it's obvious that Mama-chan does not XD
