Learned Cat (Cat Bayun)

"And day and night a skilfull cat is going
So constantly round the tree; 
Once he is going to right hand -
He's singing, telling tales; 
Once to the left - the miracles again.."

The concept based on traditional Russian fairytale poem "Ruslan and Lyudmila" written by Alexander Pushkin. 
Cat Bayun - a character of Russian fairy tales, a huge cat-eater, possessing a magical voice. He lulls approaching travelers with his stories, those of them who don't have enough strength to withstand his magic and who are not prepared for battle with him, the cat mercilessly kills.

Pretty cool. The cat looks fairly wise and calm, yet also mysterious and not necessarily friendly.

PS: Not sure if my mind is really dirty or what, but at first glance I thought the cat had its hands on top of its very huge penis :)

What an unnerving physique; how lovely <3 
You did a really nice job of creating a spooky atmosphere and the detail of the chain is a nice touch that was well painted.
I also love his stringy mustache, very villainous.
