Aaand we're live!

I think I have wanted to paint a binturong for at least a year already, but nothing ever came out when I sat down to it. So: after a month or two of prodding at the thing, here is some binturong-art. True to form I only figured out how to paint pseudofur in Photoshop a few days ago, though!

Reference used for the cello; PS CS5.

Such a beautiful painting! I love the immaculate attention to detail and how it has that realistic pop to it. Also I love the disgruntled, yet concentrated, expression on the binturong’s face. It helps make the paint relatable in a way. Overall, great job!

This is fantastic, I absolutely love this. I keep Binturong as pets here in the UK, it's wonderful to finally see a painting of one.


I'm willing to buy a print of this if you're up for that? :D

Hurrah!

I've actually got some requests for that, however, the original large file is stuck in a hard drive somewhere in my parents' house on the other side of the globe. So the most I could do for now is a 4x6, unless my dad can manage to find the thing in my haphazard decade-old directory system!

Excellent piece! (though, if you'll permit a tiny criticism, the bridge is missing on the 'cello....)

Ahah, that line would totally work.

You have a p--wellllll it's hidden exactly under his paw. The strings not bending properly is an optical illusion (known as the-artist-is-lazy-to-check-details-after-sketching). Yes.

Rich colours and beautiful detail. I love how the music is spayed just like we might do in that circumstance. Bintucellah has soul.
