A Kung-fu cat for Lisa.
This seemed to work okay. Concentrated on the render rather than the design. In the past I've been over thinking the lighting layer and underplaying the ambient occlusion. This time I spent a bit longer on the occlusion layer and it really payed off. Also, no line work layer visible at the end.
Here're the stages. I added a rim light then the pipe as an after thought, which is why the lighting doesn't really match up with the light source.
