It was an honor to make this memorial portrait for someone special. Even if dressing pets up isn't always a nice thing to do, an occasional accessory does highlight special moments at times. And this neckruff makes him a star!



I love felting pictures - one of the techniques I hope to invest more time into, in the future.
I hope she likes it!

Beautiful!  Your shading on the pleated collar is exceptionally well done.

I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.

I do admire your skill with the stabby needle, Nodsu!  And your talent in using just the right colors to create depth with fur and realism in the eyes is incredibly impressive. You captured the musculature with FIBER. and I can't even with that collar!

You're a ROCKSTAR!

You guys are the sweetest! Thank you all so much! I enjoyed working on this old boy - and it's the perfect example, that a black cat is really anything but black, when you start painting (felting him).
Thank you guys! Kiss
