You're Always Safe With Me by CatCouch You're Always Safe With Me by CatCouch
I got the idea for this one from my mom, she was always afraid that something was under the bed when she was young but believed that she had an guardian angel that would protect her.

The mirror shows the woman on the bed with hands climbing out from her long hair while her guardian angel keeps them at bay and from entering the "real" world.

--This is the new and improved version of what was my entry for the MAMA scared stiff contest.--

Here's the walkthrough for how this piece came together: You're Always Safe With Me Walkthrough by CatCouch

Pretty cool! I imagine mirror pieces are very difficult to pull off.

Thanks! When I first posted it people pointed out all kinds of inconsistencies that I went back and tried to fix. It's pretty time consuming work~

This is awesome, on so many levels. Allmost missed the litle snake thingey between her leg and feet :) Digg that the shadows also differ from the mirror image.
Very very cool!

Thanks! The shadows and lighting were pretty fun, plus with them differing it took the stress out of having to reflect them perfectly from different angles. :)

Thanks! Funny you mention zombies, I’ve been playing the Walking Dead a lot recently and totally just started to draw add zombies in an old piece I'm trying to finish now. Weird how that works.

I'd argue this is likely your most "da" successful image in your gallery? Part of that is directly generated from the nature of the image's composition and less centered nature.

:iconcatcouch:
CatCouch Featured By Owner Mar 9, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
Thanks! This one does have a much more dynamic composition. I'll be sure to try and squeeze out as much as I can from the composition in the future.

I studied Edgar Payne's forms of composition last year so I'll look over them again now.
