Just finished up the last of my Christmas commissions, this is Loki. He was a challenge as an all black cat.  Like a good little student I don't use black paint from a tube, I mix my own. It's much more interesting that way. My first attempt at Loki had him looking too blue, so I started over and was much happier with the second result. The man who commissioned him said it really looked like Loki, yay!

This cutie is TiTi, who was commissioned to be a Christmas present. This is my first time painting for someone I don't know! She took my card at the little exhibition I had at the Underground Music Cafe and contacted me.  It's a little nerve-wracking, so far when I've done commissions I've always had in the back of my head "Well they have to like it, they're my <friend/sister/uncle/childhood neighbor/cousin/former roommate/etc...>" Anyway she seemed very happy with it. She even kindly instructed me to sign it, saying "You're the artist! You must sign." :)
