*Just messing around with tones on an old photo.

NO. You cannot use this photo for RPG or for 
anything "Warrior Cats" related. So please, do not ask!

*This cat. She was an amazing companion.
Independent, yet loyal. Lethal, yet compassionate.
Ominous, yet playful. She was there for me from
childhood to adulthood and taught me so much.
Crazy to think that one little kitty can be all that to me.
Here, I share this photo with you of her doing what she
did best: watching, guarding, surveying all she can see.
I will miss her very much.

Her eyes are stunning, and I love the gentle wind blown look of her fur. Truly a beautiful cat. Sorry for the loss, but now her beauty will be shared with the angels.

Your photography has a very certain "look" to it, is it some kind of layering that you add? It's very cool indeed.
MonsterBrand Featured By Owner Nov 18, 2013  Professional Photographer
I'm not sure what you mean by 'look', but a lot of my watchers have told me that they recognize my photography simply by how I crop my images (it's very odd, but kind of neat I suppose).

As for the 'layering' you're referring to, I do create a lot of my own Photoshop actions that I apply to a great number of my photos in post production.

Thank you for the kind words ;)

She reminds me of my old cat. Blessed be. Cats are great companions.
reichan79 Featured By Owner Aug 7, 2013
I'm not big fan of cat photos... But this one is amazing. The colors of this photo, the eyes of the cat, his pose. This photo is simply magically. He really looks like guardian. I only wonder of what... "Guardian of a Chaos Gate" yeah this is how I can see it.
billy-pilgrim Featured By Owner Aug 3, 2013  Student General Artist
I'm not one of those people who's easily taken in by cat pictures. But this...this has some gravitas about it. I don't know how you did it, but it looks amazing.

This cat, she is so gorgeous. I a so, so sorry for the loos of her, and I know these words don't help. :c I, myself, fear losing my old man "cat guardian". Best wishes to you. <3 :love: :iconaawwplz:

This cat... She had a very deep stare. And very beautiful eyes. She looks majestic
Shadow9962 Featured By Owner Jul 24, 2013
That's weird, because.... Long story short, I have a "Cat guardian". I only saw him once, but he was transparent, and when he went behind a tree he was gone. He didn't run up the tree or anything. My friend's a witness, but believe if you want.

First of all, the photo is gorgeous. :love:
I had cats around me since my childhood (even before we "officially" had our first kitties my sis and me gathered some wild ones from the street and took care of them... enthusiastic 8 years old I was :D) so I can understand very well what a pet can mean to a person. Although it was more than six months ago I am sorry for your loss. :hug:
Also thank you for sharing this moment with us. :)
