Ol' BLue Eyes

Uploaded: January 28, 2006


Greetings everyone! I am back from my holiday and trying to sort my head out and get stuck back into work! Here is an image of a little feral cat I encountered on Fuertaventura. He was on top of a garbage bin searching for dinner. I just loved his blue eyes. Used buzz and other bits of work to try and create painterly effect.

Gorgeous kitty and beautiful capture! Makes me sad that this little guy doesn't have a loving home, though... :( #2348200

Thank you so much for your great comments. Nicole - I wouldn't worry too much, it was a little fishing village (well 4 wooden houses!) and I think he probably got plenty of fishy bits to eat! #2349302
