To see the original reference photo you can find it here on the All Media Events thread for today.
And I am adding this quick slide show to explain visually the process of using Painter11 to create this Kitty with attitude.

I have just come across an interview on the Blog Seven Impossible Things Before Breakfast with artist Christopher Denise I have to share it. His character design and his landscape backgrounds are so beautifully painted. The interview includes many of his beautiful paintings. Any artist might find this worth browsing. If anyone loves great children's book illustration, one can not help but be inspired. Check it out here Christopher Denise.

On Wet Canvas this weekend a beautiful angora rabbit photograph was posted and I could not resist giving it a try using Corel Painter11.
Thanks to Wet Canvas member Wendy, who goes by the name of Sundiver, for the beautiful selection of images this week. I recorded the steps along the way and uploaded to my Roxio Photoshow account where I placed them all together to give you an idea of the little fellow as he appeared in pastel mode. The images are created with a pen on my Wacom Bamboo Fun Tablet which feels almost as if one was using real pastels but with no smudged fingers at the end. I added a sweet bit of music as I thought of my two year old grandson.
I am thinking maybe I should add some Easter eggs to it. But for now I hope you will enjoy this. I had so much fun when I put it all together.
