New release at The East Wind

Well, it's no secret I love me some kitties, so I'm thrilled to show you the latest release  from The East Wind called Aurora 'Gorogoro'.  SWEETNESS OVERLOAD, eh?  Couldn't wait to color and was I ever thrilled to get my new Die-Versions Oriental Screen die from JUST in time for this.   

Here's the closeup.  She's colored with Copics, and I'm really thrilled with how her hair came out.  I often struggle with black hair and here I used only BLACK. I think perhaps my marker was a little low on ink which led to the soft edges of the strokes.  Made me quite the "happy camper" and now I don't want to refill my marker.  LOL  We'll see....  Anyway, doesn't her expression just tug at your heart strings?  Wonder who she's thinking of?  So glad she has Goro to snuggle with.  I added fur detail with Prismacolor Pencils to Goro and some shading to the window that doesn't seem to show in the pic...sigh.  So who's Goro? Well, I had no idea what "Gorogoro" was, so I Googled it.  He's the star of a CAT BLOG (with his brother Niko)! No huge surprise, since Unky (The East Wind Artist, in case you live under a rock) is such a cat lover. Anyway, that's all for now.  

 Come join the fun!
