Art Maneki Neko's Art

Maneki Neko

Recommended Posts

[FONT=Verdana][SIZE=1][COLOR=DarkOrchid]Hey everyone, this is Maneki Neko's highly popular, long awaited artwork. Oh wait, it isn't either of those things. But, I don't care, I'm going to show it to you anyway...
No really though, I'd like to show people my stuff and get some positive feedback and critiquing going on. Let me know what you think.
(FYI: I just recently got back into art on a computer, and I haven't really done any graphic design in over 3 or 4 years. I'm also working on a school computer, only during the 4 hours I'm at school. And I'm using Photoshop Elements when I'm used to Photoshop 6.0, so be gentle...)

This is the banner and avatar I just had...

This is (obviously) the banner and avatar I have now...

So let me know what you think about them. I'll have more up as often as I can, I want this to be a continuing thread so...

By the way, I'll hopefully be able to put some of my freehand drawings up when I have time. My freehand (I color only with prismacolor pencils...) is a little bit better than my graphic work, I think. I'm usually wrong so...

Please be specific with critisism and praise! :D

[COLOR=Indigo][B]Yesh, first post! Oh yeah...just wondering...why does your name say Invitation Cat? ...Nevermind... Anyway, on to your artwork. It's pretty good. :animesmil

The first on with the Neko-hito wasn't changed too much. The phrase works really good with the banner. The avi is really good, and I love the faded out colour it has. And "Curiosity" also works good with this one. :animesmil

The Spike picture is a really good one (catches his mood :animesmil ) Heh. The original was way too dark, and I'm glad you changed that a little about the Spike I'm looking at now. For some reason, I hate the white border around Spike (but's that's just me) And the phrase is of course, straight from the anime, so ya gotta like it. Heh, the avi is simple, but eh, it's still pretty darn great.

[FONT=Verdana][SIZE=1][COLOR=DarkOrchid]Yeah, about my name... Maneki does mean inviting or welcoming, I know. But Maneki Neko statues are supposed to bring good luck to your home or business, etc. So they are also known as "lucky cats". So, since my name is Kat, I chose Maneki Neko because I bring luck where ever I go.

Whether it's good luck or bad luck is an entirely different story.

Enough rambling...more art to come. (Thanks for your comments!)

Wow! Very Nice banners...I really like the design and the pictures used. My favourite is the "curiousity killed the cat" one. The only thing that bothers me about it is "so why arent I dead?" text, makes it look a little too messy. I would maybe suggest try making the text more solid and not covering the cat's face. =)

[COLOR=DarkOrchid][SIZE=1][FONT=Verdana]Yay! New art.

Anyways, I was watching The Boondocks and I had this idea, so I made it.



So, yeah. Let me know what you think about these.

[COLOR=DarkOrchid][SIZE=1][FONT=Verdana]Here is my newest banner/avi set, It's alright, but I still feel something is missing I think...



Let me know what you think of these, I need some feedback!!!

By the way, if anyone is interested in using any of my work for their banner or avi, just let me know and make sure to give me some credit. You know how it goes.
