Now the judging is over I got to work on this a lot more and with all the critiques given in mind and the sense of wanting it to be really 'me', with a lot more painting, adding of objects and the nitty-gritty details I love so much this work has been 'revamped'.
So now we also have "Cats in hats with goldfish 'bling', tiger mice and tiger parrots, sofas with paws and women with claws, the invention of 'Strapples' and flowers I adore."
Anyway I hope you like this one
Inspired by my own little ball of fur who likes to act like there's a big cat inside her, but actually surviving in the wild is not her style .... really she's the 'Lady of the Manor'. The over all look was Rococo/Baroque pin-up fantasy inspired with some Japanese style mixed in.
Photo manipulated with much digital painting.
My own face and body parts used as well as a reference for painting the body pose.
PS: Strawberry milk goes off really quickly - so drink up straight away if your a fan.
