Rocky by tracyjb Rocky by tracyjb
Rocky - the cat the Lackadaisy character originated from - done as a Christmas gift for my mother, who was probably even more affected by his loss than I was. She was also the one who had to deal with all of the related medical unpleasantness, spree of vet visits and attempted surgeries. I owe her my thanks for the care she gave him.
...and hopefully she won't stumble upon this here before the holiday. =P

Painted in Photoshop with a tablet.

Lackadaisy official site is here.

Announcing site updates on Twitter now as well, usually before they happen here.

He looks something like my tabby-point Siamese Patrick...except Patrick was even weirder than Rocky.

DarkStarrTara Featured By Owner Apr 22, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
OMG... I have a cat that looks EXACLY like that but his name is Miles XD
Moonshain Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2012
In the past few years, I've seen lynx point Siameses everywhere, but when I got my kitty, I had never seen that coloring before, and I will always think of it as the most exotic and beautiful coloring a Siamese can have (and I already have a huge preference for Siamese cats in general).

Anyway, the resemblance of your drawing to my own kitty is so remarkable, I had to post a photo:

(The baby is his (adopted) sister. She looks like a tiny fluffy copy of him, even though they aren't related, and she follows him everywhere. )

Such a beautiful cat, Rock was! I know what it feels like to lose a beloved furry family member. I had a siamese named Artemis, who died at only 2 years old. still don't know why...He had brilliant blue eyes, kinda like ur Rocky. He was the same blue/silver colors too, just seal tipped, not striped. Anyways, gorgeous portrait. I always adored ur art! u have an amazing talent! :heart:

God bless you for doing such a lovely/thoughtful portrait. I hope she really loved it. I am sorry for your loss. What an incredible thing you've done with the inspiration, I wish you the best of luck.

I didn't even know you actually had a pet cat named Rocky.

He looked like quite a pretty cat!

the right eye is a bit too close which is really too bad cuz this such a beautiful picture !
Sure-WhyNot Featured By Owner Sep 4, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
My cat's name is Rocky too, and he's got the same eyes. Completely different colour, though.

I absolutely love this one Looks just like my kitty Riddelin Alex
deadinwonderland Featured By Owner Jun 28, 2011
After reading almost all of your posted Lackadaisy comics, as well as enjoying the human forms of your characters, this makes me giggle knowing that it's the strictly cat form of Rocky. He's very adorable, but he seems way too serine like he just did something bad, but you don't know it yet so everything's good.
CricketJu1ce Featured By Owner Jun 6, 2011
My condolences. Had a cat too, he was twelve when he reached for the heavens, miss him sometimes.
anyway, nice art. You amze my everytime.
