Meerkats are a favourite of mine. Love his expression, great work on the fur and his eyes.  O0   I could sit and watch these guys for ages. Very well done.  :clap: :clap: :clap:

 :thankyou: I have found pastels are seriously easy to work with when you have no outline or don't want to spend time drawing outlines, aslong as I have a decent base it seems good to go, think i may invest in several sizes of velour paper...  ;)

Outstanding!!  I had to look three times to make sure it was a drawing...not a photo! Wow!  Awesome job.
