Angel by Chibi-Jeshi Angel by Chibi-Jeshi
A portrait of my parents' cat, Angel.

The image was inspired by both the cat's name, and by the Sailor Moon manga where Ami says something along the lines of "That cat suddenly fell out of the sky. I thought it might be an angel" (though in Japanese, of course).

I tried to give it a very ethereal look with the translucent blue wings and the ripples of shining, blue water.

The fur, especially around the head, was surprisingly easy to paint; much more so than drawing it would have been because I could do it in layers.

Really needs something in the upper right corner to balance it, though.

My cat was hit by a car today. Nothing will replace the hole in my heart that she's left.
She looked exactly like this, right down to the mottled greys and peaches of her fur... she only lived to a year old...
I'm not one to believe in Heaven, but thinking she might be happy, somewhere else, made me feel a little bit better. Thank you so much for this wonderful deviation.
RIP Loki, I'll miss you forever <3

I'm so sorry to hear that. I'm not really a believer either, but if it exists, maybe my Angel and your Loki will see eachother there.
