This is my secret santa gift for hosted by
I hope you like it ^^
The first thing i did with this picture is look up cat references as they were cat characters XD I wasn't really sure of the pose but i wanted something cute and the secret santa person wanted something coupley so i was thinking like touching poses one lying on their back and the other sitting but i couldn't get that to look right so i went for them sleep or lying next to each other like curled around each other type thing.
I also had an idea for the type of background i wanted, it didn't really turn out how i expected but i like it all the same. i was going to have some sort of back lighting to this but i decided against it.
Also I had 3 other secret santas to draw so i wanted to keep them all to a theme and i went with a badge type theme. I also added the nest to keep with that theme although i couldn't really add the characters name to it because i felt i would've been to cramped.
Also i think i've got anime's emotion right on this one 0.o *animecats01 if you feel it should be another colour combonation let me know XD i'd be happy to change it.
Also because of the pink background I decided to add a pink overlay to the picture so the colours seem lighter or slightly. Also I shaded the characters in pink too XD
