Oh my goodness, this photo gives me all sorts of warm and fuzzy feelings. The eyes are stunning, the pose is unique (as with many of your shots!), and the fur is so soft-looking I want to reach through the screen and pet it. And, the best part, it's stock! I can draw this amazing photo, and not be hunted down with torches and pitchforks for copyright infringement! You are a god amongst men.
If anything deserves a DD, it's the majestic moment you've captured here - and allowed everyone who browses dA to use. You can bet I will be dragging ^Elandria right here in three months' time yelling "pick this one here!".
Aww, thanks for your lovely words! I love seeing the results from other artists putting my photos to good use whether as reference or in manips - I'm often quite jealous of their creativity and skill .
