royal cat


This is my royal cat for Nilah's character design challenge. He's a Siamese cat emperor about to host a green tea party. I really had fun with this. I'm a big fan of super flat art, and I'd like to keep experimenting with the style.

Also... this is probably a little subconsciously inspired by Kung Fu Panda. :)

Looking cool! The textured shading is a nice touch. ;)

love it :D

Vector style is always so nice and clean.

danielle-- I actually did this in Photoshop just using regular raster graphics and a nice textured brush. It probably would have been faster using vectors, but I guess I'll know better for next time. :)

Tommy--Thanks! Glad you think it came out nice.

Natalie-- Thank youu! I should do some real vector art now!

I am a huuuge Mary Blair fan, thanks Ramon! I've been trying to get something out that looks a bit like her stuff for a while, so that's really cool of you to say!

haha whoa! well, can't say that I'm surprised, your design has a lot of that elegance and simplicity that her work has :)
