    I’m delighted to follow those updates Zackod ;)
    I used to keep lots of tarantulas, venomous snakes, scorpions...
    I’ve had the BW Spider too, and I keep thinking of getting try the jumping spiders , lol ;)
    ATM I’ve got young Lasiodora parahybana (tarantula) ;)
    I’ve been watching tv documentary once. where they were showing the hunting techniques of the jumping spiders...
    If you ever been watching that documentary, you’ll never forget, how such little creatures are smart and I’d say - intelligent !
    This is why I’m so amazed with them, and thinking to try keep’em home to watch what they do, how they behave ... ;)
    Please finish that piece , lol ;)

    Thankyou! I will finish this piece. I have been so focused on practicing techniques that i learn what i think i needed, abandon it and move to the next learning curve. But i will be finishing most of my paintings now.
    Im glad you are enjoying it.

    More colour and erasing. Using mainly yellow and viridian for the outer green, with sepia to get the darker brownish on the bottom. Yellow, scarlet red, magenta and erasing to create the hair at the top and on the legs. Will probably soften some of the parts that are out of focus with white and go back over with the transparents near the end.

    Thankyou so much. But i think a tiger could possibly be more difficult! I think one of my next studies will be a furry animal of some sort. I must have a look at your tiger. Have you got any photos up?

    You’ve already seen my yesterday’s update dear friend. I’m happy you like it so far ;)
    Lots of scratches, layers and working back over and over the same places - this is how I could describe it ;)
    Zackod - this is the way I’m doing it, I bet it’s not too smart way, there must be some much faster/easy techniques to get the fur done ;)
    I wish you find easier techniques ;)
    My way suits me,but it’s time eater lol lol lol ;)
