 :thankyou: Jay, Jill, Mea, Patricia, Dennis, Danielle... He is questioning is not he, Mea :) our cats looks at me like that sometimes. I made his photo ready to be painted, but I will wait for some time.
Love.

Well done, Selen.  He looks awesome.  Yes, it was a fun lesson, and I think we all enjoyed it.

Hi All,

Posting my rendition to Dog Portrait. I've never done this before as far as animal portraits are concerned. It was difficult but challenging. Please comments and critics are well received.


Cheers

Woof, woof, Juan Carlos.  Good job - - maybe more shading around the eyes to make them look more lively?

Good job, Carlos, but I have to go with the 'rest of the crowd'...don't be afraid of the darks. Have a look at the main pic, and there is a lot of dark.  Really coming along, tho. Looking good!!
