Sooo cute! I have a friend who raises llamas and I cant wait to show her this. She will fall over in love!

Oh wow!! The llama is just amazing!! I like most of the background too but find the white above the head a bit distracting simply because it seems excessive. If that bit was just a tad toned down, I reckon it would work really well and not steal from the exquisitely painted head. I do like the shapes within that white area though.

The texture of fur is very good. I love this, the lighting is good too. Stay warm this weekend, its supposed to be cold again!

Thanks for the kind comments. Glad you think the background works...Patrick I agree with you that the white could use toned down. I will do a light wash over it.
Yes Iowa is going to be cold Again...like deep freeze..I can't take it anymore!!!!

very nice work! I really like the texture of the fur. I reckon your llama just might be an alpaca though from the shape of the ears (llamas are usually banana shaped, alpacas are more spear shaped)

Oh I love those and the fur beautiful work!!!

love it love it love it Susan. I agree with patrick the white does distract but OOOOOOOOOoo that fur is wonderful.I do wonder if darkening the right side might help it pop more as the left side really does. Just a thought. Really great job on this one.

beatiful, i guess not many people paint llamas or alpacas in case they spit at you while painting them :wink2:

Mike I dont know why we dont see more of these guys...Maybe Ceci is right people could be afraid of the flying spittle!!! The ones I photographed were very polite and didn't spit!
Laurie I think you are right about the darkening of the right side. Thanks for looking

Llamas are adorable looking. Really like the soft fur. My nieghbours have a llama & one day I would love to draw him. He's quite a charactor.
