The black cat to me is a important part of my life.
Due to the death of our family's black cat when I was young.

Since certain events, I've since morphed it into my own identity.
It's special to me since the black cat identity has a deeper meaning.

It allowed me to have a better understanding of individualism and the beauty/horrors of death.
I based my beliefs around it and do not believe in an afterlife.
Although my cat still lives on in the form of a memory.

So, there is a creature inside of me, but it's a memory and my own manifestation of it from that.
I'm me, but wish to honor a cat. It will always be with me and in doing so, leaves that imprint on others.

Wow this is amazing! I love how well you color digitally. Cats are special to me as well. I still have my 14 year old cat with me, and she has practically grown up and been with me almost my whole life. I'm going to be very sad when it's her time to go, but she will live on in my memory.

Thats a really long time! Mine died around the age of 10, he was like the another child of the family. I didn't realize how emotional I would get over his passing though at the time. Thank you also for the favs :) and doing vector art is a huge pain in the butt! Mainly cause I'll take to long wanting to get every last detail right and usually Ill get sidetracked by other things during that process, but I like the end result :D.

No problem, the end result really shows you spent a lot of time on it.

It's one of the first factors that helped me carve out my thoughts about how special an individual is and the beauty/ horrors of death. I Believe my cat to be dead, no afterlife, no heaven or hell, just cease to exist completely. Although the cat can still live on, only not as itself, but only in the form of a memory.

Which allows me to safely say without sounding too crazy, that there is a creature that lives inside of me. It's a memory and than theirs my own manifestation of it from that. I am Human but I wish to honor a cat. I will never let it go and in doing so, Ill also be leaving a imprint in others.


After years and years of pondering death, life, heaven, hell, afterlife, legacies, and so on, I came to the same conclusion. It brings me solace.

This is a lovely piece of art. I like your color choices, they complement each other well. The flow of the curves both in the centerpiece and the background are splendid. The layered background looks great with the play among the circles and curves. :thumbsup:

:) Thank you so much! Also it's nice to see someone who has the same viewpoint on the subject and also find it comforting. There are a lot of people I know who would argue this, so it's not something I generally express about a lot or at all :).
