Looking Towards the Future by hibbary Looking Towards the Future by hibbary
Omigosh I'm uploading something! :O I actually have other things, but I've not uploaded them because I'm afraid of being accused of theft. All this style thief stuff has got me so afraid to upload anything related to TLK or furs or anything, I just feel like it's safer to keep it to myself. XD

But anyhow, this.... So my friend has been going through some rough times. I thought, "I ought to do something for her", and, before I knew it, I had started this. I worked for many an hour, and finally got it pretty much the way I wanted. :3 Since my awesome pally 's been working in realism, I've really wanted to give it a shot. I'd actually done one pic that was semi-realistic before she really got going on it. But she's far far better at it than I am! XD Anyhow, I gave my best shot, and I'm pretty proud with it. :3 Hopefully, I'll only get better. I've always wanted to do realism and surrealism, but I'm just too lazy and can't seem to finish anything. But I had to finish this for Scully! Feel better, girly! :D

Oh yeah. And, scully always yells at me to sign things, but my handwritting is SO DARN UGLY!!! So I added in a little doodle I frequently use for my sig in RM pieces in the corner. That's me; the little lynx :3

I love this to pieces! It's so fantastic, hibbary! The colours, what seems to be individual strands of fur... and I adore the muzzle. Fantastic job. :)

ok this will sound odd, but I've see a lion like that on FurAffinity named Paso. And Paso looks a lot like that. Just figure to mention that, but it does look cool.

You're so nice to do this! Everything about this picture is so amazing... The hair, the fur, the eyes, the background. I seriously can't find something I don't like about this picture, it is such a beauty... I have to favorite it. :D

Lady-Hawk Featured By Owner Aug 6, 2005
Being accused of what!?!?! That's non-sense! Your artwork is purely your own and anyone who claims otherwise has shit for brains.

Good work on this picture, don't ever be afraid to post more.

Just... wow. Awesome, awesome work - I don't really know what to say. :XD: The colours and fur are amazing.

I love it how people can claim their own style of drawing. That's truly annoying! You know what, I might as well call anime my very own style and accuse anyone who draws it a theif of my own intellectual self-proclaimed property. I'll tell you what, if someone draws in some way, form, or fashion of any kind, there is most likely someone else in this world who has used a strikingly similar style, OMG people stop whining, there is only one form and it's called art, get over it! [/rant]

Anyway, awesome drawing. Did you use a super-accurate stylus to get all of the color in? That's the only way I could imagine getting in all of the detail, unless you painted on a wall-sized canvas, scanned with a wall-sized scanner, and compacted the whole thing to 5% or it's original size. Although I can see how you did so well in this drawing, as you seem to have an acute knowledge of a cat's bodily composure. After all, cats seem to be your thing :)
