Smile at Me Cheetah by balaa Smile at Me Cheetah by balaa
Erm well first off this is a sorta thank you pic for the 70,000 pageviews that I just reached. THANK YOU ALL!

Secondly, it is an experiment and thirdly it is a break from commissions. I had soooo many failures yesterday that I decided to veer of course and choose a random old sketch and color it with no goals set, no ideas for color schemes, moods etc. I tend to research my projects heavily before I start, getting a very good idea of what I want to see in the end formulated from the get go...but sometimes that just gets boring and I wanna 'play'. So this was my play and a means to experiment with more 'loose' painting and not sooo detailed. All in all I had fun and it was a good way to keep smiling. I realize there are flaws in things but I didnt want to focus on everything being perfect...just free paint and see where it leads me.

So...the cheetah smiles at me.

**edit: URG tweaked it yet again..eyes were just not sitting right....last one..I dont want to touch this pic again x.x. Truly forgive the resubmit folks, I wish there was a way to make it so it wasnt sent to everyone again!**

Thank you all again for the 70k, I am honored and humbled by your continuing outpouring of support.

Simba just got out-cuted. You could totally make a happiness virus with this. Just hack into people's computers and make it such that when they cut on their computer, this is what pops up. Or just do a pop-up add. That might be better...and more legal.
