Better. Faster. Stronger. by KelpGull Better. Faster. Stronger. by KelpGull
:D
Possibly the biggest traditional art piece I've gotten around to completing.
It's gotta be something like a foot and a half by a foot, or something. And it's so lovely in person. I can't even begin to tell you how perfectly lovely it is.
I had so much fun with this.

For Rebecca, her mom, and her three cats.

This is so funny! I love the plane-cat hybrid the best. That background must have been killer to make. Neat idea!

TANK-RUSTY GOOOOOOO!!!

This is very nice. I see you have asked for critique, though. (Or you selected "critique encouraged" anyway.) A few things don't seem to line up. Rusty looks like he's too far to the left compared to his treads. His right ear seems too high compared to his left.

The perspective you used for cookie seems weird. It could be because you have him in front of Baxter or it could be because his tail's too short/body's too long. I'm not 100% sure. I think it's just his size relative to the other two cats.

Baxter looks pretty good, but his left leg (Well, our left, so I guess it's really his right. Whatever) doesn't have a contour that matches the shapes you shaded. Hopefully that makes sense. I don't knoowwww. I'm not really sure what I'm trying to say. His paw on the same leg looks a little funky too.

I hope I didn't ruin its loveliness for you. XD;

This is really cool. Becca and her mom are gonna love it.

Yeah, Rusty I drew in last and didn't leave enough space for >.> So he's bound to look funky. And you're totally right about the ear, I didn't even notice that.

Yeah, I wasn't too happy with the initial sketch of Cookie here. I drew him up so much better in the thumbnail >.> And couldn't get the tail to look right with the body, so I just bit the bullet and slapped it on.

Gah, yeah, the bottom line of baxter's paw should be lower >.> Having it turned up like that was actually an accident in the initial drawing, but I loved the pink of the pads with the nose. And the shading is definitely off there, you're right.

Ruin it's loveliness? Haha, I'm sixteen, I don't expect it to be perfect ;P Thanks for the crits, thooough.
