Awe he is so cute, soft and fluffy. I know you did fb, but how did you get the little curly hairs? It almost looks stipples. Just lovely work with this tool, you got the knack with it.

My thanks to you all individually for your nice words .
Nelvia . Tha advantage in using FG brush is one can vary the type of stroke my adjusting the FG tip . Shorter tip with less pressure will give thinner stokes . For fuzzy soft stokes keep the tip at 2 or 3 mm . I use micromax FG brush

Your technique always intrigues. Did you paint the paper with black paint, or ink? Would it be the same paper used for printing photos?
This is so well done, with wonderful textures.

Thank youHarry. , I appreciate your comment
TJ The paper board I use has glossy surface , similar to the book covers but thicker . Photographic paper is not suitable . I have to cover the surface with black ink not at it's full strength . I add ink later to the darker parts .
