Thanks, Trev.  I am feeling pretty good about it.  Cute critter, no matter what I do to him.

I like the mottled background you chose. You are right, this guy is going to be great no matter what colors you choose!  :smitten:

Wow Mea - you have taken to line and wash like a duck to water  :)  I seem to have missed this thread for a while. Your drawings show such improvement with every one you have done  :)  Love the owl and the lighthouse.

Cheers

Thanks, Fiona.  What makes me most happy is that I can see and feel my progress.

Here is the final version (unless someone sees something I missed).  Actually this is the fourth photo I have taken of this in the past 10 minutes because I found something to change on each preceding one.  I like the background better on the test version, but that's because the paper was darker to begin with.


Thanks everyone for your suggestions and encouragement.  My only regret is that this is actually only 4 x 6 - now I need to do a big one sometime.

Great job, Mea!  :yippee: :yippee: :yippee:

This may be picky, but I'd tweak the owl's left eye. There seems to be a little too much white showing above the iris. They should be the same. But excellent otherwise. :)

Mea, I like your rendition. I like the black and white a bit more than the coloured one.  :clap:

Thanks, Steve.   I just made the tweak.

Thanks, Val.

Thanks, Patricia.  You are such a cheerleader for us.

Thanks, Gita.  At least I kept the jpg of the b/w version if I want to make prints.
