Incredible scratchboard work, Victor. The color you achieved in the eyes is so delicate and beautiful.

That is really stunning, and I can't keep my eyes off the eyes, but I want to explore all the fur, then back to the eyes, oh those eyes!

Alfreda.........Thank you so much....The eyes are always my primary concern. I could say that I use my own for reference but that would be streching it....yuk..yuk...That may be an idea...do a scratch of people eyes ??.............Victor :wave:

Hi Victor,

I just adore this. The eyes are gorgeous, and the fur is so soft that I could cuddle it. Mind you, I have never had the urge to cuddle a fox, but yours is an exception Victor. He is beautiful. :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:
