Scholars' Tower by juliedillon Scholars' Tower by juliedillon
Another piece for Imagined Realms! This is actually an older sketch that I went back and colored. It was fun to revisit this one. :) 

There is a 1.5 hr process video available for this piece on my Imagined Realms kickstarter page, so if you'd like to see how this was created, please check it out.

(this breaks my record of "most cats included in a picture," with 15 cats. because reasons.)

Hey, this is pretty awesome! I feel like there could be a cool story behind it. do you have any backstory or should I just create something in my mind? lol

Cats never need reasons. :) Very nice. To quote Liz Lemon - "I want to go to there."

A place I would love to dream about, but don't get to go there often enough!  Oh, and kitties, kitties, KITTIES EVERYWHERE to hug, snuggle and love all night!   The details like clutter, lighting and diversity of human subjects is so nice!

I only wish this place was real. Totally not half because of the copious amount of kitty cats.
The colors in this are FANTASTIC, so warm with just the right balance of cool to balance it out a bit.

Oh man it's so strange to see this colored. I'd mentioned before that the Academy of Art perspective class uses your sketch as an example. Funny to see it colored now. Looks great!
