My entry for this month.


Hello everyone! Here is my entry. :smiley:
β€œA cat takes a short break from his trip to take in the views and breathes in
the fall morning air.” :cat:

I wanted to create something that gives you a warm feeling (from the sun), paired
with the crisp atmosphere (mist) to show the transition into the fall season,
while trying to make it something that is nostagic for me. My family and
I would take road trips to the country to see the first sights of the leaves
changing, and since I’m not confident in drawing humans yet, I decided to draw a
cat instead that resembles my furry, childhood friend as the one travelling. :maple_leaf: :fallen_leaf:


Hello, and welcome to the forum. I love this and the cat looks really great.
