Natalie I though the same about the eyes but did not say anything because the other eye is in the shade and it is darker and the pupil is larger because less light is entering the pupil.  I hope I am right about that.

No it is not the size of the pupilla as Danielle said, it is the angle of the left one (the one on the right side of the paper)... it is very very minimally tilted by minus a few degrees, compare it with the original in the lesson.

Amazing that our brain can pick up such a tiny difference and bother us, yet difficult to know what it is.

Saying this, it is a wonderful piece of work.  :clap: :clap: :clap:  Does lions have round pupilla?
Cheers, Annie

it must be an optical illusion on the eye. I have taken Sherri's drawing and mine and overlayed them in my drawing program and they line up perfectly. I wouldn't worry about it Sherri. You have done an excellent job with this drawing. :yippee: :yippee: :yippee:

I can't wait to see your owl, I think the scratchboard is your perfect match medium

Sherri,

Your scratchboard owl is FANTASTIC. So life-like!  The fur is amazing.

GREAT work.

Sherri, I have started very slowly with the cat.

What you did is amazing, so lively...  but how do you 'add a little color'?   Hope it is okay to ask. :blush:

I did some checking around on You Tube.  You can buy colored ink but you can also use watercolors which is what I did. 

I found it pretty easy to do.
