When I saw this beautiful artwork by TamberElla in my DA watchlist, my first thought was "wow, that colour palette is amazing, I have to steal it". Of course, that's a perfectly natural reaction when looking at her art (look at these pretty colours and lights!) and I'm not a palette-kleptomaniac at all. I only have all these palettes at home because, uh, I'm collecting them. Through very legal means. 

Anyway, in this case, she was actually encouraging people to steal use her character design and palette as part of an Instagram challenge, so I jumped on the occasion and turned her cat into a humanoid, because magic. 

Also, there were hundreds of beautiful and creative entries to this challenge (including sculptures, cosplay and cute kitties), and if you want to see them all, don't hesitate to check out the #devinellechallenge tag on Instagram, you won't be disappointed!

This is amazing! Just the expression is already so intriguing, but the darkness of the shadows swallowing everything around draws the focus even more in to that face. The colours are so beautiful, the warm green in the face the reddish orange creating such a pleasing contrast and the purplish accentuations under the eyes and around the lips (and in the shadows) make this even more interesting. The design is so cool and the flowers are so well placed, creating a spiral that leads the viewers eye to the characters eyes. And the textures are so beautiful! This is just so damn good!

Thank you very much for your kind comments (and my apologies for the delay in answering them ^^). I'm really glad you enjoy the design and colours of this piece!

you don`t have to apologize. There`s so many simple reasons for delayed answers, I`d never get mad or anything if someone possibly just hasn`t seen my comment yet. ^^ And you`re very welcome!

Beautiful! I'm reminded of the Sylvari from the Guild Wars games, whose design is one of my favorites.

Thank you! I haven't played the games myself, but from the fan arts I've seen on DA their design seems really beautiful.

Yes, I learned when painting this piece that humanoid creatures with feline features always tend to look like Na'vi, no matter what I do :D
