Shinji and Luka Portraits by TamberElla Shinji and Luka Portraits by TamberElla
Just a couple of quick portraits of my cats from recently. :) May Luka rest in peace. There's a speedpaint video of one on my instagram if you wanna see it

Unfortunately my health has been really terrible lately. Some of you may know I have a chronic illness, and apparently my work schedule and travel lately has been too much for me. It's generally never life-threatening, I have all the medical support I need, it's just exhausting. I'm still working but somehow it seems my art comes out worse when I'm not well. I think part of it is my mental health and physical health are irritatingly intertwined lol. 
best wishes to everyone, I know I've been fairly absent lately. If you need to contact me quickly best place is email, I check that everyday

What illness do you have?
I have a couple so I can understand feeling too tired to get much art done but you're doing well!

Ughhh. I hate vomiting. I'd hate to have that. I bet you have to drink lots and lots of fluids?

Two things stand out to me here. The blue outline in the illustration on the right, contrasting really well with the orange of the cat, and the excellent texturing that's usually so difficult to capture with furry textures.

You must take whatever time you need until you are ready and feel better.
Do not let the feeling of obligation push you. We, your fans, will always understand and offer any support that we can.

Great pics! The one of Shinji has an almost mystical feel to it, but then again cats are like that anyway!
