Wait a minute YOU DREW THAT BY HAND!? ☼_☼ I'M NOT ANYWHERE NEAR THAT GOOD! You can look at my gallery to see what I mean, but that is INCREDIBLE! Exactly how did you manage such small details so much? And congrats on the DD by the way!
Hand-drawn pattern? You deserve a medal! There aren't many people, from what I've seen, that even attempt this like you have, and it is incredibly beautiful! This piece is so unsettling for me; I have thoughts like, "Is the boy crazy?" or "Is the cat a shadow and only the boy can see?" It's not too often I see something that has me thinking, so I thank you, and you have truly deserved a Daily Deviation.
RIP all the little ones that brought joy into our lives. You can never die, not while you are loved and remembered. Even in sorrow and lonliness. You live, and cannot die. I had a friend for 18 years who went into shadow, and I miss his warmth and kindness still.
Ah made me think of Kissa, my black with white bits cat who died six years ago, sometimes he appears in my dreams even now, opening doors with door knobs, falling through ice into the pond or just looking content and detached and purring loudly... i.e. the clearest memories I have of him.
