Hm… I think I know what to do with this…

I got it! I made this from last February-- I think you may recognize her from the Krita 5.0 release notes! This is perfect!

It’s Olivia in a dark hot pink and black dress, since the topic is a cat and a dress! Why not merge both?
The picture’s KA link is right here–


cat art i had in my files. quckly added summer dress next to it, to meet contest requirements.


Hello, I have started using Krita recently, I love it! This painting is made with the Charcoal Rock Soft brush. I hope that you like it.


dress and cat


Hello, nice to see that the subject inspires artists. Here is my image. Painted with two Rakkuri brushes - I will add their name later. She is a little floating but it’s OK for me :slight_smile:


OK, second image with Zedig Brushes


Guess I’m not the only one now :sweat_smile:

It fits perfectly the theme.

Professor McGonagall and her Animagus form. My deepest apology for anyone who got nightmares after seeing her face. painted with the Basic-5 size opacity brush. My first time drawing on pc so not exactly the most beautiful piece i made.


This is what I see with my eyes of imagination when I think about a cat and a dress :]
(still, I explore watercolor brushes and textures).


Cat nesting in the wardrobe.


Hope you don’t mind me thinking outside of the box

[edit: somehow it blurs a bit, unless you click ‘original image’, too high-res maybe…]


@raghukamath What’s the cut-off time for this? Is it tonight (Friday) or tomorrow night? If I click on the time at the top it suggests the finish point is 1am on Sunday. But I tried following that last time I did one and got caught out - the thread was locked earlier than expected. :upside_down_face:

The cut off time is UTC 24:00 midnight you have 12hrs

Sorry for the lack of background, a bit rushed as time was running out and I’m out of ideas.

I love something fantastic with cats so I made a big cat like no other :sweat_smile:


I didn’t manage to get it finished (again!). Just too much left to do! :sweat_smile:

Oh well - hopefully it doesn’t look too rough around the edges. There are some important elements missing, and I removed the flowers from the dress because I didn’t have time to do them properly.

Here’s what I’ve got so far anyway…
