This is an absolutely wonderful surprise I received after writing “Matthew Prepares for His Birth”. A good friend of mine, a furry artist by the name of Tommi Cat, slipped this in my inbox a couple of days after I posted. I really love the use of shadow to convey mood, and it’s a really nice surprise that he interpreted Matthew as black — the texture of the hair is so wonderful here it’s easy for me to imagine how he feels as he pushes his fingers through it.
The response to the Chimeral World has been really decent so far; I wasn’t expecting quite the feedback it’s gotten. I’ll have to add it to the list of settings I’ll be messing around in while I’m putting together a good story for it.
Thanks so much, Tommi. I really appreciate this!
