Brenda, there is no mess here, infact there are very good signs of colour choice, blending style, highlighs and shadowing. So you'er started to pick up some early painting skills.

I agree with Gary! you've got a great start on your skill developement already!
I believe we all continue to grow as artists, always learning, always improving. I know I have a long way to go to get to where I want to be. So, just keep painting and never doubt your abilities!:) :) :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

I always have trouble with whiskers and other similar things when using acrylic or oils. Don't worry, you'll get there! You're off to a good start and this is a great place to learn.

Really nice job on these! I especially like leopard's eye, and the highlights on the nose give it a really nice 3-D feel.:) Whiskers are a challenge for me too, my tip is to make sure to thin down the paint so it flows onto the canvas easier. I hope to see more of your work!
