Lady of Cats by coreythorn Lady of Cats by coreythorn
I am -finally- finished this piece! Yay! It's only been sitting on my computer with the lines, 2/3 of the greyscale, and 1/2 the colours done for -months-. (Then summer hit, and that pretty much withered away my Muse until recently). Finally spent today finishing it up- obviously, this is a picture of Bast, the Egyptian deity of protection, cats, and originally of the sun.

As with my previous picture of Anubis, I deliberately chose to use a limited palette so as to remain true to the traditional feel of the depiction of Egyptian deities. This one is a little more colourful, but there's a full background and foreground. (Yes, I know lotuses don't actually come in those colours, but I didn't want to add a bunch of flowers that didn't match the rest of the picture.)

Reference for the pose was taken from the lovely photography of =faestock.

You are now officially one of my favorite artists! I love Rafael still, and you were great then, but you've now surpassed great and hit the Big Time. :)

*grins* Thanks, and yeah. I actually look at that old art and cringe a little. Not that I think it's -bad-, just that I know I am so much better now, yeah? I've made a lot of progress over the last couple of years.
