Happiness is a Cat by Almirah Happiness is a Cat by Almirah
Another entry for the Starbucks contest :).

I love cats. I can genuinely say my life wouldnīt be nearly as happy if I didnīt have them. So, this entry is focused on cats!

Photoshop isnīt an easy program to get that painterly look... I tried my best though. Iīm just not sure about all the tips and tricks with it. I much prefer Paint Tool SAI, but due to the size restriction in that program, I couldnīt use it! Hope this turned out okay anyways :heart:.

It's adorable!

Annnnd for future reference, the size limitation on Paint Tool Sai is adjustable. I found out just a few weeks ago. It's under Others > Options > Workspace Usage. =)

D'AW! That kitty is just getting me absolutely sleepy feeling! As with most of your pictures with cats, it makes me want to hug one our cats. We have one cat named Luna, who is still growing. Seeing this picture reminds me of her so.
I really love how the cat's tail wraps around the cup. And the sky you did for the picture is just gorgeous!
Thanks for posting and sharing with us!

looks fine :D looks painty, the problem with photoshop is that you need to use particular brushes and depending on the version you can configure some details in the way the brush paints, and make some edit using some of the tools

Cats make the world a better place :D I'm going kind of crazy without mine this year...

This is an adorable piece <3 I absolutely love the kitten's face~ And all the colors are so soft and comfortable :D It exudes warmth.

Good luck in the contest!

They really do :D.

Iīm gonna go crazy next year when Iīll be away from them in college. I donīt know what Iīm going to do without my three fur balls :(. Or what theyīll do without me, for that matter! I know whenever my sister and I go off on a trip, one of our cats stays up at night and just cries and meows real loud.. poor guy :(.

So I bet it must be really hard away from your cat(s)! I feel for ya! :(

Thank you very much! Iīm glad you like this :heart:

It sucks TTnTT But I've only got two more weeks until I can see them~
I hope next year goes well :) Will you be able to, like, go home and see them once in a while?
Reply
:iconalmirah:
Almirah Featured By Owner Jun 15, 2011  Student Filmographer
Yay! Iīm glad youīll be seeing them soon!

Yeah, Iīll be about an hour and a half away from home, so I can visit them every now and then :). Iīm lucky that way :aww: So hopefully they wonīt be too too sad! At least theyīll still have my parents to play with them. But theyīve developed such a close bond to myself and my twin sister, and itīll be hard on them :(. But getting to see them occasionally should help a little :).

My parents got the idea of having me Skype to my cats next year... I donīt know how well that would work though :rofl:.

Thanks Chris!! It would certainly be fun to win, but who knows :XD:.
If I placed in one of the top three, thereīs a cash award, which would be awesome because my sister is saving up for a film camera thatīs kind of expensive (she really loves video editing and filming things, and sheīs good at it, too!!). It would be nice to help her out a bit :)
