A Big cat and little cat are having a love conversation. The big cat has camouflage artwork on his body and the little cat is making big body language. Who is talking to who? Who loves who? It could go either way, so have fun with this.
Since I seem to be in my retro mood for the past few weeks, this was a small sketch in one of my many sketchbooks. I always refer to my sketchbooks, whether the sketches are good or not. The important thing is that you get the information down. Usually, the first sketch is the best one because that carries the message across in the strongest and most immediate way. You can always tweet the drawing a little bit and get it to fit into what you want now. This drawing was a little different because I kept it very raw and did not polish it up at all.
I scanned it and made sure I put it on a large white background leaving a lot of space to make room for a big text area. I just made a mask and gave it a transparent background and then painted the cats some and with the direct selection tool, filled areas with different shades of black, greys and whites. I know there are artifacts all over the place but I am moving ahead and will repair the image later. I hope this does not bother people too much.
