Lovely concept and series of drawings :) I think you pulled off the transition well! You've definitely improved it from your first one, that you did. ;)

I do have a question, though: Was there a particular reason you chose to do the three in-between drawings in black and white instead of color?

Thank you very much! :D

I thought I had written about how I decided to do what I did, black and white an all, but i can't find it. O.o So here:

Basically, my aunt had done a series of pictures where she took two photos and transitioned between them with small ink drawings.I thought the original ink was lovely, so when I first drew the tiger-shell transition I had the various textures like my aunt's piece - while in the new version I decided I liked a more painterly black and white.

I liked the difference between the color stationary piece and the black and white transitions - kind of made it seem like while it's transitioning, it's not quite real again yet.

Cool metamorphosis! We had to do something like this in art lesson at school once. It's always fun to look at, and in this case it's very well drawn and looking beautiful too! :-)

Thank you very much! :) When I did the original art in 2002, it was inspired by a piece my aunt had done in high school for an art lesson, it was probably the same lesson you did! XD

I commented on it in Epilogue already, and then I saw it here too. I am not going to repeat all I said there, but still, I wanted to stop and leave a congratulation note for this fine piece. :)

Oh! Groovy, I hadn't check back on Epi to see if it was accepted yet. X3 Thank you very much Pierre, for the comments in both galleries. :D
