Captain Midnight by Ascynd Captain Midnight by Ascynd
My old black malkin lost her battle with cancer yesterday. I couldn't do anything until I finished painting a picture of her from back when she was well. She was one of the sweetest, most courageous beings I've ever known. I'm going to miss her terribly, but that won't make me forget what a blessing the time we had together was.

Hah that's cool... yeah she had such an odd but pretty face, very round, almost vaguely human-like in profile, heh...

Oh Ascynd, I am truly sorry to hear about your kitty... But you truly made a beautiful tribute to her. The way you shaded and rendered the fur is specially eye catching, it really shows how much love you put into this. Your textures and colors are always a treat to see, I'm glad creating this helped you in your moment of grief as well. :heart:

But your cartoony stuff is so goood though! And I bet you could do it with some practice. I used to think I couldn't do backgrounds, but I insisted to do it even though I thought it would come out bad, and now I'm halfway decent I think, haha...

Yeeah, that's true! I used to think I couldn't do a lot of stuff too before I kicked myself out of my comfort zone multiple times, haha. It's part of the whole thing about improving after all!

I tend to go for a semi-realistic style mostly but who knows, I'll definitely end up having to do that when drawing things for class, haha.
Dude, you're really humble! I think your backgrounds are REALLY amazing, no kidding. I need to push myself to do more of those!

Do eet! I used to be afraid to but when I stopped worrying about it coming out perfect, it got to be fun.

She really was, this is probably the most beautiful thing I've ever painted both in terms of the subject and how it came out. And just working on it helped me to feel better, now when I see it, I smile and remember her how she was.

I am so sorry to hear that, my condolences. :(

But as already said, focus on the good times and the time you had together. She will be waiting at the rainbow bridge for you.

Heh my grandma probably buzzed her in already. But they will both be waiting for me when I show up, I'm sure!

Thanks! I appreciate it. Today was easier than yesterday... it was hard to even look at the photo I used as a reference. But now that I got it done, to look at it and see her looking back makes me smile.
