Revised City Cats by karincharlotte Revised City Cats by karincharlotte
I have submitted this before, but wasn't happy with the main cat. I felt it didn't match the rest of the painting. Hence, I made a few changes, and I'm happier with it now. Feel free to comment. All constructive criticism is always appreciated, but please be gentle. :D

I Love your use of color. I am not a cat person but I love this. This is so intense it reminds me of late night Jazz club scene.

Hi Karin. love these citycats :)The painting got some constructivism in it.
The photo seems to have some reflections in the black on the top so that might be visible on a print

Thanks, Stefan! How can you tell? This is an acrylics painting, and it's hard to get a good photos sometimes. I usually sell prints of my work on Redbubble, and don't really sell much here on deviantart. Anyway, thanks for your feedback. :wave:

The bigger the painting the worse it is to get a good photo :)

Yes,true, but I think the photo for this was ok. I often fix it up in photoshop if it doesn't come out right. I usually take photos outside, they say mid morning light is best, and I just read somewhere that it's best to take a photo flat - but that's not always possible with large work. Thanks for caring. :wave:

Sometimes if the painting has a rought surface it's necessary to take the picture not direct flat with 90 degrees from the top, for the reflections don't get eliminated that way, so I take the photo a bit angular and rectify it in photoshop later for better results :)

Thanks for encouraging me :D

These cats look more like alley cats.
I think the darkness works well with the theme of city cats.

Love the eyes. :eyes:

Thanks for letting me know...I wasn't trying to make him look sad. It just happened. The previous one looked mean, I thought. At least this one is more cute.

I don't remember exactly what it looked like before, but I love the main cat's striped pattern, and the painting looks great as a whole. So I think you met your goal. :)
