The flying cat by ani-r The flying cat by ani-r
I've been wanting to draw the cat bus for a long long while now. I still want to do a more refined painting featuring it, but this is ok for now. Susumu Yokota has this song called The flying cat and it just really sounds like nekobasu :D Just trying to fill my one pic per day quota here which has been reduced to one picture / whenever I can. I would've worked more on this but this sleepiness is killing me! ~50 minutes in PS.

I love the mood generated by the use of colour. This could be mistaken for a piece of concept art :D

I really like the way you painted all the textures and the night scene contrasts so nicely against the yellow lights. The pink in the sky is a beautiful touch, too.

Instant :+fav: right here, not just for the content (CAT BUS!!!) but for how beautiful this is.

The impressionistic feel to this adds to the fantastical quality and I love the limited use of colors, particularly because there are some many beautiful shades of blue here. Simply stunning!

And you know what, I think the movie was a big rip off!
It should've been called "My Neighbor Cat Bus", because Totoro really didnt do shit!
