Am I human enough? by yangtianli Am I human enough? by yangtianli
This image was done for a tutorial for Digital artist issue 32. [link]

It was to paint reflections, and so I came up with this.

I read a fairy tale a long time ago, which is that a cat fell in love with its master, a human, and so she prayed and asked to be turned into a girl. But no matter how human she looked like, she is still a cat, behaves like a cat...so that's my inspiration for this painting, but she is a little fox here (you can think of her as a cat, too, haha!)

Anyway, hope you like it! :)

just a question of curiosity, why are her ears only in her reflection?
Reply
:iconyangtianli:
yangtianli Featured By Owner Apr 27, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
In the refletion, it is to indicate her real form, or at least reveals more of her real form. Normal human will only see her human form which is why she doesn't have the cat ears.

However, in China, it is said that the tails are the hardest things for the foxes who transform into humans to hide. So that's why she is not able to hide her tail yet. :)
