I've finally found enough motivation to finish this piece.... (though I may fix some things later, I don't know... I'm just way too tired of this one for now!)
The story behind this painting is quite simple : the girl (you're free to find her a name if you want) is some kind of a noble witch, she was born blind then discovered that she had the power to see through the eyes of animals.
The serval cat she's holding is now "her eyes", he's bound to her (that's why he has human eyes).
I started this painting as a study to practise curly hair mostly and I ended up finishing it....

80 to 90 hours approximately (maybe less, maybe more... I can't remember...)
No direct reference used, but I googled some image of serval cats to create my own serval and I used a mirror for the right hand.
I hope you'll like it!
