happy bday DA- contest entry 1 by Trutze happy bday DA- contest entry 1 by Trutze
ok so the ones who know me, know I love cats and i immediately thought that the lines could be part of the pattern around the eye of a cat.... so I tried
....fits not perfect, but i think looks quite nice,
i had some other ideas guess I'll try them later

I used the scribble exactly as you can download it, didn't change position or or size here, so I hope it's quite clear where the scribble lines are...also I made my painting completely UNDER the lines, so there is no covering it up, but of course because of the black fur they do not stand out.
here are the lines: [link]

It's just plain painting in photoshop, no stock involved.
I had some personal ref pictures of a cats eye, but that didn't work out, I glanced at same while drawing of course but it's not nearly the same image as one of my photos.

Edit:
changed the fur, tried to make it look less blurry, hope it's better now, thanks for the crit
you can compare old and new version here: [link]
