Tim you are truly an inspiration. I have only attempted one cat drawing so far. I'd like to do her again but I'm totally stymied when it comes to fur. I would love to draw/paint one of my dearly departed Sinbad, but just can't seem to get the fur. I keep looking at yours, do you lay the fur down in layers (just keep building it up) to get the correct shadings? Its gorgeous...I will try again. Thanks Tim.  O0

Thank you Kelley :)  Val, yes it's a layering process. I start with 4H, then HB, then 2B and 3B up to 6B. Dark hair and fur is fairly easy but light hair and fur is tricky. It's called negative drawing. You must draw the area behind the hair or fur. Scribing works well for white whiskers but I painted the whiskers in the cat drawing :b Patience is your greatest ali. The cat drawing took about 50 hours total in moments of spare time so each time I stopped and came back to it later added to the time.

Hi Tim, Welcome.

Your work is beautiful, I absolutely love the penguins!! I have looked at them so many times. The scissors are awesome, must have taken a very long time.

You'll really enjoy this site.

Thank you Anya :) The penguins painting is my first ever attempt at painting. It's from finished but I'm hoping to get back to it soon. Finishing a dog drawing first. This week actually. The scissors took 150 hours. I am enjoying being here :)

I can believe the scissors took 150 hours, it's awesome - and very clever the way you have worked in the dancers  :smart:

Thank you Nolan :) The subtle male/female features are not so subtle LOL. The salon owner was nervous but requested it be incorporated. He was very pleased at the outcome :b
