The idea for this one started out more comic than it turned out to be. I actually wanted to have a little kitten sitting at the from of the screen looking at the viewer knowing only peace and no danger. I soon figured out that I had to let the chick and the cat interact to make this piece work out. I guess there are not other back story to this than I simply enjoy making pieces like this. I also wanted to experiment a little with a light sources directed straight down from the top og the screen, lighting up dust particles in the air.

Own model used as reference for the girl.

Painted during 3 evenings in Photoshop CS2 with a Wacom Intuos tablet.

This wonderful piece of art reminds me of the film "Splice"....because of the wings,the cat and the hall behind the woman.

This is really cool! I was thinking about how you had a more comic view--what you could have done was have the cat stalking a mouse or something, and the demon-girl stalking the cat :)
