I like that you made mushrooms growing out of the cat/s.  It adds to the mood of dankness.  Very clever.

This...this is awesome. Beautifully detailed, very nice colour scheme with the greys and blacks giving a Gothic feel, and the ruby of the eyes brought out very well. The mushrooms are a nice touch too, a bit of a kooky reminder of the "wild" aspect of this spooky, feral creature.

Oh my - I absolutely love this.  The detail in the fur is amazing and reminds me very much of zentangle.  Your eye for detail is beautiful.  And I adore cats. This definitely deserved a DD!  :+fav:

A curious gaze, a curious stance. They look ready to pounce another mushroom. Perhaps the mushrooms are what made the feline grow two heads. Instead of the poisonous mushroom killing the cat it transformed it into what it is now?
I simply love this piece a lot. As my fursona is feline and stranger the better!
