So this Portraits of Love contest... I really wanted to submit my pending vector of Sameria to it... for those who don't know, Sam is my kitty.
I've lived alone now for the past 4 years and got Sam a year ago now... needless to say, she has been like a best friend and therapy to me.
I tend to talk about her a lot to friends... who one has now dubbed me a crazy cat lady... I'm not honest. Just a Sam crazy lady
Anyway about the vector, it's photo reference free, I drew a sketch in photoshop (no tablet QQ)... and then used it as a guide when building this up.
I tried to aim for a watercolour/painting look about it - think I achieved that \o/
