Lab Cats.

Some more of rq’s fabulous art work! In this particular case, lab cats:

The story behind this is three black cats who visit the lab on a regular basis – they’re not quite strays but they don’t seem to have an actual home, and they’re our unofficial mascots.)

Sketch, line-drawing, painting, finishing touches. Plus a detail shot of mah favrit kitty.

Click for full size. I would be over the moon to have such gifts. My fave is the center bottom, that’s just wicked.

    The Neo-Egyptian style works well with the cats. The end result is wonderful, however the “bent sheet of paper” look of the cat looking back in the first sketches is so neat.

    Thanks, everyone! The Egyptian feel was accidental (I was going for two dimensional yet dynamic), but considering it’s cats, entirely appropriate.
    And I dunno, but I like the idea of cats with prehensile tails. :) I’d probably think differently if that was reality.
