Great board, Jack! A superb way to incorporate all kinds of textures and it sure is a flashback to when I was a kid. "The Count" - LOL!

Lovely scratching here and such an interesting piece to stare at. Looking for my favourites in here. I think I see Kermie peeping out from the top there.

Great subject! So unique and you did a wonderful job rendering them! Such challenging textures!

Cool idea Jack and very well done.

Thanks everyone for the comments. It was the first time I really got to play with a fiber brush. I liked playing with all the different textures. MY original photo did not have the entire lot of stuffed animals that is in this picture. I added some on the fly of my favorites (Like Kermit, grover and the count) so it would appeal to more people. Or at least that was my hope. I am hoping to finish this by the weekend.
I have a few photos of kids toys so I am trying to plan my next so I can do a series of just kids toys.

Yes indeed--you've nailed it.

Thanks Lorna. My 4 year old can't stop looking at it. He loves all the those stuffed animals and he notified me it will be going on his wall.

Thanks Lesley.
