There isn't much to say about this cat portrait other than that it is one of favourite photos of Smarty and one of my favourite photos ever, and that it was about time it got a little revamp. (Oh, and that it appears to be one of your favourite photos of mine as well, considering the amount of comments, faves, and views it has collected over the years, which makes very happy, as it portrays my beloved kitty.)
I didn't do much though because I genuinely like it as it is. Still, I felt like a little editing was needed, so I removed the thin black border, updated the watermark with something more stylish, and finally saturated the colours just a little bit. :3

This is amazing! You can see each strand of fur on this photo! The eyes are gorgeous too; I envy you for taking such an amazing photo! I couldn't take a photo with this much depth and sharpness to save my life. The lighting is perfect, too! My favorite parts are the eyes and fur. You can see exactly which way the fur is moving, and the colors of the eyes. The nose--you can see every hue of pink on the nose. It does give you that mood of daydreaming, of distant thoughts. The reflections in the cat's eyes can be a bit distracting to look at but, they also create the distant look of daydreaming. Awesome photo; keep up the awesome photography
The entire setup of this photograph goes to show that, while taking photographs of pets is not an easy task for anyone, the results always pay off in the end.
The focus on this photograph mixes well with the closeness to the subject's face (especially with the little "coffee grounds" or whatever is dotted on the cat's nose). Everything that portrays what the cat is both doing and thinking is well presented.
When you look into the cats' eyes, you start to wonder - as the title rightly suggests - what the cat might be daydreaming or thinking about. This photograph of a cat relaxing, with a very contended, thoughtful look on its face, may well mean anything to those who see this photo.
Thank you for the fav on my Andalusian Stallion. I came by to peak at you and was blown away, in particular by this photo. I would be thrilled if you'd let me paint or draw this (traditional). The lighting and color detail would be a great challenge and a lot of fun. Would you mind if I did? I certainly credit back to the original. Sometimes my originals sell and I request permission for that as well if you don't mind. (I need the money! lol) You actually have several pieces that have my drawing hand tweaking lol.
Yes, you can and honestly after seeing your gallery and what you can do with pastels I can't wait to see your portrait of Smarty Just remember to credit the original in the description and of course send me a link to your piece when it's done and thank you for asking first!
