Stardust by balaa Stardust by balaa
"What do stars do? They shine."

~~~
The last year has been spent catching up with..myself mostly and all the things I have had sitting on the backburner. This piece is actually even older than that, probably closer to a year and a half old. I came across it today while resorting files and something struck me and I decided to finish it.

I chose to title it Stardust for several reasons, most of them being really fairly sentimental. But also, I do see eyes as being so grand and endless in their depth..so I suppose they are a bit like outer space..

Onto specs.
Tools: Photoshop cs3, tablet pen
Time Taken: ? I wouldn't even try to guess
Size: 6000x4400 pixels at 250 dpi
Prints: yes, sans watermark

~~~
Now off to catch up on the million other things I have sitting around me. Thanks for stopping by, I missed being a more frequent face on DA!

Stardust by ~balaa is gorgeously detailed, and the beauty of a piece of art is to make you believe. What it makes you believe is up to the artist. What does this make you believe? ( Suggested by catch878 and Featured by cosmosue )

Breathtaking! Those eyes are stunning. The ears make me giggle - he is so regal, so feline, yet his ears remind one that he is a baby :) or so he seems to me!

Easy to see why and how this captured a daily deviation for you. And I don't think there's anyone who deserves it more. I know what you mean about the eyes, but this also reminds me heavily of the kind of prints where the endangered animal has the reflected earth for the iris... it's just really sweet and very thought provoking. Stardust, I'd say it's very fitting for such a star.
