Panda FINISHED

Going stir (or scratch) crazy on my stuffed up back but had to start something. This is small - 5x7 - and is from my own ref of a panda in the Adelaide Zoo. It will be coloured.



By the way, I actually do feel, after two weeks, like I'm a bit on the mend.

Re: Panda WIP

Must have been the 500 hits I hit your web page with that gave you a lift!! So glad you are back at work.

Hey Patrick, this is looking really really good. The fur is fabulous and that lighting. I wouldn't be touching that fur much anymore. It's great the way it is. Looking forward to more more more soon soon soon.

That was my first thought!

Looking great so far, Patrick! I'm so glad to hear you're feeling better...at least well enough to scratch up a small one. Just because it's small doesn't mean you have to show it small...how about some closer views, please?

Re: Panda WIP

Wow, this is incredible. You always have unique poses and this is no exception. So realistic (sometimes Pandas have a comical look). This is great. Glad you're starting to feel better.

Re: Panda WIP

Thanks guys

Lorna, I'll post close-ups later though they're far from impressive On this computer, my software is compressing it badly and messing it up unless I go this small, but I'll fix that later with another computer.

Good point Robert, but I like colouring zebras for the same reason - they allow you to be really subtle and yet add that tiny bit of pizzazz (hopefully )

Here's an update. No ink or colour yet so this will change massively. The ground will have more to it, the background isn't done, the fur isn't nearly finished and the eyes will go back to being barely visible too
