I pulled my inspiration from Edgar Allen Poe's work, most notably this quote from his "The Black Cat" piece:
"One day she accompanied me, upon some household errand, into the cellar of the old building which our poverty compelled us to inhabit. The cat followed me down the steep stairs, and, nearly throwing me headlong, exasperated me to madness. Uplifting an axe, and forgetting, in my wrath, the childish dread which had hitherto stayed my hand, I aimed a blow at the animal which, of course, would have proved instantly fatal had it descended as I wished."
Made on Paint Tool SAI over the course of a few hours.
XD This is a beautiful painting Raven, and you should be real proud of it!~ ^w^
Read it back in my junior year of high school.
