Bastet's Gift by katseartist Bastet's Gift by katseartist
Concept illustration for our next Concept Development project. We're doing an adaptation of "The Gift of the Magi" and we weren't allowed to use humans, so I chose Tiaa and Zemti. They need more development, anyway.

The original concept was them selling their jewelry and fancy things to get each other gifts, but it was too close to the original story. After many awkward silences and feeling around for words, the class decided that they should be kitty Indiana Jones. We'll see how that goes over. xD

Love the ears on the black cat.  They're outrageous!

 

The picture is fantastic too.

My blood sugar levels just shot through the roof. DIABEEEEEETUS <3

Gotta agree with Egriz, too. That background coloring's pretty sexy.

GOOD. DIABEETUS IS BETTER THAN EMONESS AND THINGS DYING. :iconimseriousplz:

But thank you. I must have repainted it at least three times. Glad to hear that the efforts weren't in vain. xD

So cute! I love the story "The Gift of the Magi". It's actually one of my favourite short stories... Do I love it as much as "The Cask of Amontillado"? No. But it's still amazing. x3

Thank you. x3

I'm actually a little traumatized by "The Gift of the Magi". We had to do a project last semester with the same story and had to keep it pretty limited as far as our creativity went. We spent SO LONG on it that the professors got a lot of complaints from students when they told us about this project. xD
