Thanks so much for the compliment. I never really keep track of how long a portrait takes but colored pencil is a slow medium so it does take a while. I am getting faster though as I gain experience and learn which colors work with which. Here is a link to the Wetcanvas art forum where I posted a WIP of this one some time ago. Hope you enjoy it. Thanks.
incredible how realistic it looks! What I appreciate the most of this picutre are two things: The incredible detail - so perfect (I am just freaking out at details ) And the difference you worked out between the structure of the fur and the eyes which look so realistic GREAT ART!
