A dedication to a little furry friend I had to say good bye to in 2019.

I used a specifically restricted palette, as a challenge. I had a lot of shades to work with, so I tried to use them to make his fur and spotlight look a bit more fuzzy, using a hand ailiasing effect. I think it turned out pretty ok.

Wonderful piece, digging the AA.
And I am sorry for your loss.

Thank you. The outline on the spotlight was a last minute decision, but I'm 100% postive it was a good move. It makes the light pop very subtly.

And yeah, looking at this peice makes me pretty emotional. I can't recall the last time I made an artwork that had this kind of significance. Most work I do is just for the fun/joy of it. Nothing wrong with that of course, there's a slight difference between an art piece done for the fun of it, and one done with a more personal purpose behind it.

Thank you. It means a lot to me.

Thank you. I tried to put a lot of care into this piece. The large amount of negative space was very intentional. Not trying to sound too cheezy/obvious, but it represents the huge negative space he left in his absence. Home just doesn't feel the same without that little guy running around it.
