These two characters compliment each other so well, so it was a fun commission to do. :)
I've been looking at Claire Wendling's stuff, and it's been such an inspiration. This is a little different from my usual lineless stuff, but I lost the energy in this when I took the lines away.

Hope you like it. :D

Anya, your skill with lighting and mood is extraordinary, and can be seen in a piece like this. The animals are carefully rendered, and the colors you used for them are both fantastical, yet grounded in reality.

The simple background works well with the figures, and the small flecks of light and the tiny, cursive outline in the back are an especially nice, but not overbearing touch. I truly envy this background.

The figures themselves as I have said before, are nicely drawn with a very slick coloring scheme. Tigers and Leopards aren't the most original of the big cats to pick from, but since this was a commission I cannot really blame you.

If there can be any criticism, is that the picture is a bit on the small side, but that's but a minor nitpick and I don't enjoy nitpicking.

All in all, a very splendid and thoughtfully drawn piece. You truly are a wonderful artist!

So I've got to tell you, when I blew this up to full view, one of the kittens I'm fostering lays down next to the computer, then reaches up with her paw and taps the fireflies infront of the characters.

She approves :3

And so do I. I reallly love the dark jaguar, but they're both beautiful!

Thanks! If cat's approve, not much I need to worry about.
