I think that cat would tear her up. Glad it's just a fantasy image. Beautiful work on this image dear Barb.

You just keep exploring and exploring...this is a gas! A wonderful visual treat---I love that, in that small space, you have this fierce warrior goddess (I think she's female) in a full martial arts pose, with a great splayed body and one leg shooting at the cat (with a shoe, I might add, that I wouldn't wanna be kicked-by for all the money in the world). And you graced this cloistered space with a great little mushroom hut---I love that thing!---with a rock chimney, and a little door...and what looks like a long snake winding around the branches. It's a dark and cloistered space, but so much activity there. You even put in a path and some shroom-patches. It's a mini fairy tale kingdom...
Then---voila---a pure cat! Totally unexpected too---and though the cat seems curious (rather than deadly), your warrior knows all too well that a calm cat is just an inch from being a deadly cat. And the cat's gaze is terrific by contrast to the warrior's rage and "I dare you". Wonderful juxtaposition, Barb, w/ sweet bokeh in the background, and lush greenery. (The birds took off the weekend...hey, they deserve a rest...) You've made a whole mini world here, just terrific work, I love it. (And thank you once more for your wonderful comments, Barb, they mean the world to me in every way.)

A visual treat with much to feed the eye, to be sure! You've accomplished the blending of rendered components with real background photography (including angle and amplitude of lighting) pretty much perfectly which is way harder than most people appreciate. Thank you for sharing, I really enjoyed viewing!

Too fun! Love this concept. Great job of blending everything together. I'm not sure who to root for - the cat or the 'warrior' dude. LOL. Really great posing and lighting!

Fantastic image! Love the warriors reaction to the cat! The cat looks harmless and quite amused. Perhaps it like the dance of the warrior? Marvelous and fascinating image! Bravo! Very well done!
