Just wanted to let you know I showed my parents and they loved it. My step dad thought it was a photo and my mom thought you just manipulated a picture of Muirgen to make her look like she was jumping down the stairs. They really adored the pictures. From the people who think commissions are a waste of time and money... consider that the highest compliment they can give.

Also my friends from my gaming group (one who is one of the vets that worked on Muirgen and another who was the one who found her on the street who I adopted her from) also really adored the picture. I'm sharing it around and everyone is really loving it and saying how much like Muirgen it looks. So. Yeah. :3 Though you'd like to know.

Awww, nice :) I'm really glad - I was afraid I made her look a little too kitteny, too roundish, and that the "real Muirgen" would get a little lost in it.

Naw, she may have been almost two but when she was excited she totally looked kittenish. You did a great job capturing her. :)

Thank you so much Jocarra. This is such an amazing piece and you are spot on with all the details. I'm glad that it looks like you went with the Zombie-mouse and Graverg and I really appreciate this so much. It will look fantastic on our wall with her mice and just... wow I have no more words. Thank you.

Haha, thank you very much! It was basically done similarly to my other fur stuff, except I managed to use more colours in the airbrushing 'cause I was working from a photo, and used a 1 pixel brush for lots of layering of scribbles on top ;P Normally my stuff is more monotone/flatter looking in colours and a little less finely layered with fur detail.

very impressive! I like the motio0n blur, your art is ALWAYS awesome! Just curious, but did you draw the mouse/rat and then blur it with some sort of program? its cool!

jocarra Featured By Owner May 29, 2010  Professional Digital Artist
Thank you so much! Yeah, the background and the toy mouse was blurred using the motion blur filter in Photoshop.

Thanks so much! The fur was actually a whole lot of scribbling with a 1 pixel brush over top of airbrushing.
