Hey Uncle Venkat - he is beautiful and elegant! And actually, the image seems clear and sharp to me.

When it comes to the FG brush, Venkat, my greatest talent is digging tiny glass splinters out of my hands and forearms. I have a special tweezers set for just that purpose.
Seriously, though, I consider that a compliment of the highest order, coming from you, sir.

Beautiful lighting, shading, textures...you know, I really like this!!

I really want you to turn this into a triceratops. You'd just need two more horns and the crown and it would be perfect. Just something to think about....

That said, I really like this. I wish I had that kind of control with a fg brush.

Wow Venkat! What an inspiration your pieces always are, another wonderful one!

Another gorgeous piece of art!

Another gorgeous one! I love the amount of texture you are getting with that tool.

Thank you Ann . The eye looks almost human in the photo
Greg, thank you . I am comfortable drawing with FG brush
Terri, the image looks brownish and the contrast is more, missing some middle tones
Matthe . On glossy paper the FG dust is much less and the FG feed lasts much longer , I can do about a dozen pictures with just one
Diana I am happy you like it
Sandra thank you
Kendall perhaps I may try to do one the way you suggested .
Thanks Rodman So nice of you
[/B]Ginger [/B]. I get the feeling of drawing with pencil . It is much easier and quicker to finish
Thank you Shalese
Melissa thank you for your kind words
Hector . Thank you for your gracious comment
Netta. For certain textures I find FG brush is more suitable like in this one
