Zen by c-t-elder Zen by c-t-elder
Balance. Precision. Serenity.
As if nature itself took every ounce, every molecule of feline energy and grace and fused it into one single obsidian shape.
Each move, each gesture, each slow breath imbued with intent.
Absolute peace found and bound by absolute control.
Don't think, feel. Don't stress, focus.
Don't do, be.

Morris has his rituals. One in particular, Tessa really, really enjoys watching.

Awesomely fitting musics by Christopher Tin

Yay, therapy by art.

I liked a lot the design in this, apart of the great work with the character the background totally mixes simple shapes and solid colors with realism and detail. Beautiful.

This is really damn awesome. I still like the charakter a lot. The pose and the setting are totally great again:D The style of the background helps a lot to create a really interesting atmosphere. The same goes for the stream of blossoms and the calm facial expression of him. But the best is the anatomy you did on him. Absolutely brilliant at all. I will also go and watch the group for the comic now^^

First of all, let me say that it's always a gem reading your comments on any of my guys and girls. It makes me feel the idea in my head really somehow gets through, which makes all the time spent on them worth it. (However, I always dread answering, because it deserves/requires for me to say something thoughtful back at you rather than the "yes, thank you" reserved for most answers I do at half past 2 AM - my usual dA answer time).

I'm really glad you like Morris, both him and Tessa (as well as Ethan) surprisingly grew in on me, despite being originally throwaway dead-or-otherwise-discarded people from the team's rocky past and not really characters at all... making me kinda sad that I have to see them go before the show actually starts. But at least Morris appears in issue 7, so there's that.

And thank you for the group watch. When the time comes (possibly around Christmas) when we'll reveal our little secret gift/side-step from the comic, your efforts shall be remembered and possibly rewarded ;) But sssh, it's a secret.

First of all sorry for the damn late response but my university started and so I was hardly able to think of or do anything else but stuff for that.
I am again really glad to hear that you think so and that my comments are motivating you. I am also happy that it's worth to write them:D I like to think of the meaning behind a picture and try to figure out what the artist tried to say with this picture, what emotions and feelings are weaved into it and how the artist did all that. Thank you very much. I feel very honored that you take the time to write such a nice comment in response to my comment. I enjoy to write with you too.
Yeah, I think that these characters are just damn interesting, their design is great and they have got a lot of potential, even if they are not the protagonists and it would be cool to see some of them sometime in the future. I am looking forward to see Morris in issue 7 then:D
And it goes without saying, that I watch the group for this project, since it's just damn cool and I like all the characters too much:D So absolutely no problem. And now you have got me really curious about what's going to come:excited: Oh and thank you very much^^; I still feel totally honored. And you can count on me. I won't tell anybody;)
