|I receive a lot of mail asking for tips on drawing and painting animals! There is something strangely fascinating about animals. Let me try to pass along a few tips that may help you in your quest. Try this big cat on for size!
Oh, and by the way, I see that my favorite slackard Elliot finally has a new lesson up (the one on painting a loaf of bread). Not bad for a slackard. He may have some redeeming value yet! I will take it easy on him this week.
Keep those emails a comin', folks!

|And there you have him! I hope this will help the next time you want to put one in your painting, or maybe just do a painting of him!|
