Peaches- Good morning my friend. This is wonderful and captivating. I tried this with taco one time but he kept closing his eyes. Nah just kidding.
I do love the look. I have been working with a monkey along this line but with a different theme. the eyes definitely make the picture, but the other features of the cat still seen with the black around it give it that mystic look that is stunning.
Creative, excellent ps work, incredible results.
Have a wonderful day, take care, enjoy yourself, be safe. #6181072
