Hsaio of the Takai Hu by Katmomma Hsaio of the Takai Hu by Katmomma
Score: Cats 1 : Dogs 0 :laughing: And the Siamese are taking over!

Just kidding. But I seriously wanted to do a piece with a little more time put into it- and I've been dying to crack out my watercolors. Luckily I had the time to do so over Thanksgiving Break.

This is a portrait of Emperor Xaio's sister, Hsaio- who would later become Empress of Hunshu and Suchow's wife.....and of course Ting Tang's great great great great....grandmother. The Takai Hu is one of the Two Rivers that cut through the island of Hunshu....and I'm having fun naming feline ladies after rivers.

*Kizamaji was over my house on Tuesday and she watched me draw the lineart. This was rendered in colored pencil, then doused with watercolor washes overtop-- and then a little bit of digital touch up.

It's a bout time I did an Anthro piece that took me at least 10 hours to finish. :giggle:

:star: will be available for Print soon! :star:

Prismacolor Pencil, watercolor

this is so cool! It remembers me of several pics I found a long time ago of some photographer who dressed cats with kimonos and other cute japanese costumes. But I can't remember his name! XP

Really like her head piece, and the eyes and stunning. I like how you made the background less detailed so the focus is more on her.

This is just a wonderful piece. I had to see it up close and I'm glad I did. She has such beautiful, flowing movements and a grace about her that is almost...haunting. The look in her eyes is both demure and clever, making me wonder just what it is she's thinking. All in all, a very lovely piece! :aww:
