    Nice,...like the color of the board or whatever you have it on also. Eye is my favorite part,....only a taxidermist would draw an eye that well on a 1st attempt. Best -Aaron

    Very cool Kerby! Personally, I think pulling off animal hair is harder than the eyes and you did an excellent job pulling them both off!

    Why??? You were doing something else then. You're doing what you are supposed to do now, and it's great! Be happy!

    Kerby, question it almost looks like you did that on the cardboard from the back of a memo pad! lol. Hopefully something this nice was done on some archival paper?

    I used Canson paper. It comes in numerous colors. This one was gray. Since then I use Canson watercolor paper so I can water brush and blend some colors and still add to it with pencils.

    Cool. You always read of these finds years from now where somebody famous painted something on the back of another painting or something. Didn't know if you were one of those artists!

    Nope, just started drawing and painting. More infamous than famous. Just ask my haters.
