Cats in Space - the Cat

The Cat
Feline Sapien, Red Dwarf

The humanoid descendant of the modern house cat, Frankenstein.
Human in appearance, the Cat still exhibits cat-like behaviour . Excessively vain and cool.

Demonstrated in  the youtube clip below.

Been waiting to add the Cat to this list for a while. I still get way too much enjoyment from watching Red Dwarf. :D

Cats in Space - Spot

Star Trek

Felis catus is your taxonomic nomenclature,
An endothermic quadruped, carnivorous by nature;
Your visual, olfactory, and auditory senses
Contribute to your hunting skills and natural defenses.

I find myself intrigued by your subvocal oscillations,
A singular development of cat communications
That obviates your basic hedonistic predilection
For a rhythmic stroking of your fur to demonstrate affection.

A tail is quite essential for your acrobatic talents;
You would not be so agile if you lacked its counterbalance.
And when not being utilized to aid in locomotion,
It often serves to illustrate the state of your emotion.

O Spot, the complex levels of behavior you display
Connote a fairly well-developed cognitive array.
And though you are not sentient, Spot, and do not comprehend,
I nonetheless consider you a true and valued friend.

calculating the optimum time to start a conversation

Trying a different process with this illustration.
This one was painted in greyscale first. Colour was added after the illustration was finished in grey.

Will probably continue working in this way for a bit. It is nice to get the illustration figured out before adding the challenge of colour.

This also forces me to be way more organized with my layers in photoshop (in my personal work). :D

below is the greyscale version
