Janet (I just realised your first name is not Pancho :o ), I laughed as I scrolled down when I saw you'd adjusted the values. I was going to suggest that you use the low angle of the sun to your advantage, and bring out this glorious animal's muscle tone, etc. You've done a splendid job on the hair, BTW. Doesn't that tiny detail drive you nuts, in a deliriously-happy-artist sorta way? Super job! :lol:

Details makes me crazy all the time cos I just can't leave my work without those...it makes me cry :crying: and makes me mad but it's all worth it anyway:D .

Thanks Helene and Marcel for your inspiring message.
