Inktober 2020 – MabsDrawlloweenClub Day 1: Fish – Werewolf

Day 1 Fish – Werewolf

Day 1:  Fish – Werewolf
Double Challenge combined prompts #Drawlloweentober 
Inktober:  Fish
MabsDrawlloweenClub:  Werewolf

It’s that creative time again welcome October!
This month brings some of the most loved drawing challenges Inktober  begins today!
This is my 5th year participating and once again I decided to create my drawings inspired by the official prompts of my  two favorite challenges (read my previous post here)
The challenge Mabsdrawlloweenclub is usually inspired by dark folklore and legend’s characters it has an Halloween theme.  Inktober prompts can be anything usually common things. I find it  interesting to see what I am able to create also when sometimes the two prompts of the day aren’t easy to combine! Doing an Hybrid challenge will refine creativity and skills!

For today drawing I had to combine Werewolf and Fish I guess I did it nicely and I am happy with my painting! I am not so much inspired by dark creepy or scary characters so I try to make them look less scary and more nice :-). I have created my Werewolf in a lovely female form taking a bath at the full moon light enjoying the company of a lovely Koi Fish.

A Tribute to Tigger – Pet’s Portrait

Tigger Tribute and Daisy Mae

Hello friends,

Today I am happy to finally share this lovely watercolor painting I recently created!
This is one of my latest commissions I have been working on. About a month ago I was kindly requested to create a “Pet’s Tribute Portrait” in loving memory of Tigger, the adorable gray Tabby cat you see in foreground of my painting. The sweet lady that contacted me is a follower Blogger Crystal she loves my art since last year she was the winner of one of my Giveaways. She requested this painting because this year on September 11th was the five years anniversary since Tigger crossed the rainbow bridge.  Crystal followed my World watercolor month during the month of July and saw several animals I have painted. The Squirrel, the Owl,  they lead her asking me if I do paint cats and of course I do! I said yes!
I am not new to custom Pet’s Tribute paintings. I asked her to send me some photos and she explained to me her request. She sent two photos of her cats, the ones you see here below.  

Tigger

Tigger and Daisy Mae (his sister from different parents), the two cats grow up together.  Crystal at first requested two paintings, one for each cat, then during our talking ideas via email exchange, she thought that would have been great to have one painting featuring the two cats laying together. I agreed, that was the best idea as I could envision it already in my mind, we agreed on everything and that was it! From these two simple photos, my only references I was able to reunite the two cats in my painting. Crystal loved it!  I am so glad and happy that I I was able to make her happy. I love animals very much their love to us is unconditional and amazing.  I lost several loved pets myself,  I carry them all in my heart.
I am always open to commissions requests like this one, to honor the memory and life of a loved pet.

Daisy Mae

I loved to paint Tigger and Daisy Mae and once again I want to thank Crystal for loving my work and wanted me to create this painting! Thank you!

If you would like a Tribute pet’s portrait in loving memory of your lost pet or a portrait of your living pet for questions, details and price Contact me here on my Blog or send a custom request on my ETSY Shop  I would be happy to discuss your idea!
