, you've caught me. See, I fear I'm in the middle of some art-texture crisis where I can't be sure what I'm doing. My mind says dot, my hand says line and squiggle. I may need some dot training. Ok, ok, just kidding!
I'm working on a pen and ink drawing of a German Shepherd at the moment, and she's going to be almost all dots. The dots will be making a comeback.
Anyway, thanks so much for your nice comments on my (not-dotty) bear. I do appreciate it!
Thank you very much, Wassie
! That means a lot.
Thank you so much, Anthony
. I wanted the expression to be somewhere between drowsy and threatening...I'm glad it works.
. Thank you so much for your kind comments!
Thank for the kind comments, Moises
Thank you for your nice feedback on this, Dottie
! How many scratches? Hm...I honestly couldn't begin to guess. Many thousand I'm guessing. Just for fun, I began to count in the close-up of the bear's ear, and in that shadowy area alone with a small touch of fur texture, there are over 50 scratches, and that's a very sparse area. I wish I knew how many, too. It'd be fun to know.
Thank you so much, 123harry
! I'm so pleased you like this. You make such an interesting observation regarding detail. I imagine with a lot of detail, it can be easy for the subject matter to become static and too still. Your comments mean a lot.
