Commission - Themed Pet Portrait "Boone"
The client requested a themed portrait of their cat, Boone portrayed as a soldier.
I pitched the idea of a sniper cat.
Here is an in-depth look at my work and thought process.
My goal for this piece was to make Boone's fur appear plush and fluffy.
Boone's eye had to be bright and intelligent, and the sniper rifle had to appear believable even though this is rooted in fantasy.
I added a bunch of knobs to the gun to make it seem like a complicated piece of machinery.
