So, which color should the cat be? Now, personally, I'm a big fan of black cats (and not just because my partner's cat is black, which — by the way — was the reason for the cat in the "Cardboard Box" illustration being black), but I wanted to go with something more colorful for this illustration.
Since I already knew the camouflage shirt would be predominantly green, I thought the orange coat would fit that just fine and would also go along nicely with the blue background.
The cat's eyes have been orange, too...until the home stretch of the artwork, when my partner suggested that I should try icy blue instead. The reason being — you guessed it — another cat that we know. :)
Anyway, drawing the kitten was a lot of fun, I am really pleased with the results and I hope I can work for the Catamancer game again in the future and draw some more furry critters.
In the meantime, please make sure to find the cat nearest to you and give it a little pet!
