Poor Zula. Every time she turns around there's that weird, scaly, smelly... THING the minstrel brought home one stormy night and named Sapphire. It scares her to death, waking her up with rude sniffing, snuffling and... ugh! LICKING! And then, of all the audacity... it wants to PLAY with her?? Not in any of her nine lives!********** This image was inspired by watching my ferrets try oh so hard to get my cat to play with them. She hates them and they just want to play SO badly. I was playing around with F-Stop and depth of field on the camera a bit to keep from having to do as much post work and layering. I also played with the lights a bit with a reasonable amount of success. I took it over into Photoshop Elements to get the more painterly look for it.All components come from DAZ3D.com unless otherwise noted. * Millennium Cat * Millennium Dragonling * Almstubli (the building and furnishings) * QuirkyBlonde's orange tabby texture for Mil Cat * "Fantasy lyre" item by Dark Whisper.
