My cat Coco, who was put to sleep last summer because she had cancer. This is my tribute to her.
My first atempt at pixeling from a photo, http://i160.photobucket.com/albums/t199/ooshmaster/n544868920_142257_7347.jpg
Originally was going to do yet another black and white one with no dithering, but I found that it looked incredibly boring that way, so I went way out of my comfort zone here. Had a tough time with the dithering, but I thought the colors worked pretty well. The only parts I feel like I nailed were the cat's head and the left side of the red pillow. However I feel that it's done and was a good learning experience. Took a few artistic liberties, in particular the exagerated highlights on the ears which were inspired by Tim Jacobus. I was also inspired by the music I was listening to while working on it, Bohren & Der Club Of Gore.
