My half of a trade with my buddy ~animegirlmarron~
She wanted her character, Kurai, and I got the choice of drawing either his cat form or human form. I loved both so much that I couldn't pass up the chance to draw them together. X3 So once I had the sketch done I found myself inspired to try a different style. I'm not sure if you guys have seen *CassandraJean's "Bleached Cats" series, but if you haven't then take a look! I fell in love with the b+w and one color scheme she did for each character and thought to myself, "Kurai would look pretty sweet like that.." So I tried my hand at it and I rather like the results!

    Here kitty kitty kitty, come play with ME. They both look purrr-fetly cute. Sorry about the jokes - couldn't resist, just like how good these two look. Now to be serious, I really like how you can almost feel them "move" and the "flow" of the picture itself. Great job.
