Rest in peace, Graffiti
Today, our beloved male cat died in a trafic accident this morning. We will miss him. He was one of a kind... :rose:

Here is the closeup


This is the hardest thing I've ever done. I cried so much while I was drawing this. Especially when I got to the eyes... it's his beautiful and peaceful eyes... that made me burst into tears... Wonderful and all loving, Graffe. May you find some confort here...

Spend all your time waiting
For that second chance
For a break that would make it okay
There’s always one reason
To feel not good enough
And it’s hard at the end of the day
I need some distraction
Oh beautiful release
Memory seeps from my veins
Let me be empty
And weightless and maybe
I’ll find some peace tonight

In the arms of the angel
Fly away from here
From this dark cold hotel room
And the endlessness that you fear
You are pulled from the wreckage
Of your silent reverie
You’re in the arms of the angel
May you find some comfort here

I wanted to do a similar thing when my cat died but I could never do him justice and left it. It's always sad when a pet dies but you have created a beautiful picture here.

Aww you poor thing!! losing a beloved pet is one of the worse things to deal with... :cries: my uncle lost a dog by a traffic accident, all because he put on the dogs regular collar one morning instead of the shock collar... :( I feel your loss :tears:

Oh no that's so sad :(

I'm so sorry!
Yesterday, a cat died in my arms after a car accident. I stopped and jumped on the street to save it but it was too late :( It died some seconds later :(

Too bad to hear your cat died, too.
And it's even worse it only was one year old :(

You had a Birma? damn, those cats are so beautyful and I really love them :love:
I'm so sorry to hear about your cat and maybe I don't really now how you are felling, but I know that I would die if my cat would die :(
I got a half-blood Siamese and she's my honey, my dearest pet :D So I know the love.
Sad that he died in a car-accident :( That's terrible :tears:
But this piece is amazing :love:
