Lady's Fireflies - Acrylics by lenzamoon Lady's Fireflies - Acrylics by lenzamoon
Yaaays! I painted a kitteh with actual paint brushes and PAINTS. O.O oooooh! :giggle:

Ok so it's the weekend (thank god!) and since I had a little free time this evening, I decided to test out my acrylic painting skills outside of Painter 9 for once in a while. I haven't done it in sooo long and I don't want to end up forgetting how to use my traditional medias, know what I mean? Yeah, of course you do. :) So after 6 hours of painting and the occasional prisma pencil here and there, this is what I ended up with. A cutie-pie of a tigress resting in the tall grass on a warm summer night, enjoying a nice light-show put on by her firefly friends. =^^= Aren't they sweet... :aww:

I painted this on a 5x5" piece of hot press illustration board. One of many pieces scavenged from a much larger piece of illustration board. ^^ I've cut this to fit perfectly in this faux wooden table- top frame I bought a ways back -- none of my feather paintings have been able to fit inside the thing -- and I have been aching to cram something into that sucker for so long! :XD:

I'll upload a shot of it in it's frame to my scraps in a minute and post the link below:

---> Right Here <---

She is for sale, if anyone is interested in taking her home and giving her a comfy spot on their nightstand or desk!

My asking price is $120. But I'm flexible, so note me if you would like to negotiate at tad. :)

Acrylics, prisma pencils on illustration board. 6hours. Enjoy!

EDIT: I totally forgot to post a link to the photo I used as reference for this piece. Luckily someone pointed it out to me so I can fix my mistake. ^^ So here's the link:

This is so beautiful! You're very talented. I love the look of amazement that's in her eyes as she's looking at the fireflies. The flower and the necklace is a really nice touch! Thanks for sharing. =)

I really enjoy this painting. ^^ I love cats (big and small) and I feel you've grasped the feline aspects perfectly. The fur is so realistic and the necklace! That part looks like a photograph! ^^
The only thing that I'm not all too fond of is the flower D: I feel it's the only thing that doesn't look real. This may be because it has a slight outline or it just needs a little more shadow.
I can't really say ^^; I couldn't even think of doing a better job than you did. The flower alone is better than some of the pieces I dare spew out and call artwork.

Overall, I feel this is an amazing piece ^^ Well done!

Wow. This is beautiful. Breathtaking, even. :+fav: The fur is so well-drawn I can even imagine the feeling of running my hand through it, especially with the added effect of the necklace sinking through it on the top, very realistically. Congratulations on a great painting.
