Moment of Respite by celesse Moment of Respite by celesse
Tiger sprawling in the sun!
Fast asleep, his day is done.
Lying here, 'twas warmth he sought.
The sun has made his tummy hot.
One sad fact he overlooked:
His brain is now completely cooked!
- Calvin, Calvin and Hobbes

Not quite the inspiration for this picture, but it's all I can think of every time I look at it XD

Yayyy something for meeeee. I haven't drawn Aristotle in forever, so I decided to use him for the "cat" theme. Yes, he's very lanky. I had lots-o-fun with the lighting. And I dedicate this picture to *kayikoni 'cause she is frighteningly obsessed with my arrogant catboi.

Done in Corel Painter 6. Detail shot: [link]

the lighting gives it a realistic mood.. it's almost becomes 3D coz of the light and the well balanced shadows.

Great work

I'm just wondering why you haven't recieved a daily deviation yet! It's wonderful, beautiful and perfect. :heart:

Love the lighting, shading the soft colors, and the pose. The little calico in the corner just completes the picture for me.
