Cheshire cat by Spectrolite Cheshire cat by Spectrolite
Edit: Some people have commented about this and I hope this clears this mess up.

I'm not the first to come up with the puzzle piece thing for the Cheshire Cat. *kyoht did (a much better in my opinion) piece a couple of years ago that you can find here [link] or here [link]

However, I do distinctly remember waking up and sketching this down, so I assumed that I dreamed this. The puzzle piece aspect was probably from seeing *kyoht's piece, but this is what I've put up and I'm not ashamed of it. In fact, I'm rather proud of this piece. I'm sorry if some of you feel that I'm a thief. There really isn't anything else I can do except take this down and I really don't want to. End edit.

----------

Sorry for disappearing again. Hopefully this makes up for it. ^^;

So, I had a dream about this a couple weeks ago. I sketched it down and I'm very pleased with the end results. Purple is an interesting color to work with. Cheshire cat! :love:

-------
Medium: Prismacolor colored pencils, white gel pen (whiskers), and white acrylic (dots by puzzle pieces).

I love this <3

I was going to draw my own Cheshire cat (I will not copy your design, I promise). I was wondering if I could base the coloring/pattern (not the exact) off this Cheshire onto mine....hope its not too much to ask

I really like the idea of a Cheshire Cat whose grin isn't so exaggerated he's ugly.  Tennel's wasn't.

It is not anthro, anthro is like a furry, only humanized/ human-like

this is a really beautiful idea and it makes me jelouse! The only similarity i see is that its cheshire cat, and it has a puzzle piece. other wise its completely original.

I especially love his face. it's so destinct, and his expression is amazing. For some reason i just LOVE his whiskers. (weird, no?)

Even if you didn't dream about this, who cares if you got the idea from Kyoht? You changed things, the pose is different, the tails aren't exactly the same. Some people need to grow up. This looks absolutely gorgeous, I would buy prints of it :)

Thank you. :) I did dream about this, but I guess it doesn't really matter anymore. I've got all that in my artist's comment because someone was going around a while back and replying to every comment saying that I was a thief. She's since asked me to hide her comments, which I did, but I left my own up and altered the artist's comments to show that yes, I probably got the idea from seeing Kyoht's work and it seeped into my subconscious. :hmm:

Thank you. :heart: I really do like what she did, and I guess my subconscious picked up on it. Colored pencil is one of my favorite mediums to work with, though my stuff doesn't always look like it was done in colored pencil.

I love purple and cats and this just brings those two affections together perfectly. One of the most beautiful cat pieces I've seen in a long, long time!

(And to me it doesn't really matter if the idea of a puzzle is similar to another artist's view, that happens all the time and I don't think these two are too much alike that someone might accuse you of theft. You just had the same idea :))

:iconspectrolite:
Spectrolite Featured By Owner Oct 25, 2010
Why thank you. :heart:

I put all that in the artist's comments because a commenter was accusing me of theft and was making a big to-do about it. She's since asked me to hide her comments, but I left mine up to eliminate any possible confusion in the future. I thought it was a unique idea that I'd dreamed about, but someone had done it before me and I was then accused of stealing it, so... :hmm:

I've always liked purple versions of him myself. I thought it worked best for a fantastical cat, but mostly I like the color purple.
