Kation by jeddibub Kation by jeddibub
A commission of Kation, a character with tabbycat/bobcat influences.

It was a wonderful opportunity to take it back to basics, to give the character calmness and serenity. I'm quite proud of the foreground stream there, I was hesitant to try something so detailed but I stuck it out to the final. :)

There's something majestic about the combination of birds of prey and one of the greatest land predators of our times. Kation by ~jeddibub is a gorgeous work of art. ( Suggested by Nimdi-Nilin and Featured by cooley )

The warrior is truley amazing. The only thing I have to say about it is the birds look too real as do the rocks beneath his feet. But the background behind him and creek look amazing. Great job.

Looks like a Kajit from 'The Elder Scrolls', but much better! Very much details I love. The bow looks some kind of strange, but the sword looks better xD The background is really realistic. All in all: Very good!

Wow... This might sound a bit weird, but I'm seriously impressed by the rock on which he's having his left foot. The character himself is really well done, but that rock looks so real O.o

Normally I don't like animal-faced human-bodied creatures but this pict is absolutely awesome! :heart:
I love his face - serenity you said well... :D
The details are beautiful (face, hair, clothes as well^^), but the background is maybe more amazing! The trees fading in the haze... The grass... The stream...And the hawks of corse! ^^ It is all so simple but still so living! The feeling of this dawn-forest... Incredible! Absolutely fav! ^^

I like it (background is total awesome-sauce), but the harris hawk on the left looks a bit cut-and-paste. Maybe smooth out some of those photo pixels under the wing.
