Alien cat 2

"Houston, we have a problem. We seem to hear this purring sound in our heads.... oh Good Lord is that a giant... cat?"

Loved working on this one!

It's a companion piece to a previous upload:

These are the initial sketches, I trully loved number 2 but number 1 was chosen with 2's elements in it, which I actually appreciate because 2 had a solar system in its head and I had no clue on how to paint it.


Had to do a bit of exploration for it as I had done these sketches in December of 2019, so I didn't quite remember the ideas I had. This wasn't supposed to be much of a narrative piece, but rather a way to see the creature, so I didn't focus on story; otherwise I might have gone about it in a different way, like showing the cat from Earth with a lot of atmospheric perspective (which I might in the future, I honestly like this creature).

Took about 30hrs, all done in CSP with an Intuos Pro M

Where can i get one?

I don't think I've seen a cooler alien inerpretation of a Earth animal before.
So congratulations! I'd love to see this creature in any film or videogame.

Brilliant designs
Turned out amazing :D

Where can I adopt one?

cyangorilla responds:

Now, now, let's think about it for a second, how big is the litter box for that creature

#AdoptingIsAResponsibility (?


Now that... is beautifully terrifying. I love how the cat's walking on a sort of nebulous space fog. This whole painting is such a cool concept, I love everything about it. Even the concept pieces are epic!

I like to imagine the space cat knocking around the astronaut like a ball of yarn

cyangorilla responds:

Thank you so much!

the spaceman is going to be fine... probably ( ⓛ ω ⓛ *)
