Miniature "Moses" - FINISHED!


Here's the finished product! "Eye of Moses the Serval" - colored pencils, 5" x 5". It took approximately 20 hours to complete.

I am quite liking this size to work with... it's proving to be popular with the public as well, which is always nice. They are small enough that they don't take months to finish - meaning if I am working on one that I end up not liking, I'm not in it for the long haul! This is also the first time I've used my new all-in-one scanner/printer for uploading pictures. I'm not sure if it's better than the camera, but it certainly means less Photoshop work to make them all look the same for the blog. Perhaps if I tweak some of the settings, the scans would come through a little better. I'm happy with how this piece turned out, and I don't really think the scan does it justice. Now to plan the next miniature, and the start of "Regard", the companion cougar project to "Focus".

Oh, this really is lovely. I want to try my hand at more realistic drawings and whatnot someday, I just don't seem to quite have a knack on that. I am working on a horse in Adobe but it's hardly that realistic at all. This is so gorgeous, I could look at your drawings all day! I used to work for a non-profit organization that helps wild cats, so I always love seeing art and anything to do with them. Keep up the wonderful work. It's fantastic. :)

Wow, this is amazing! The eyes you do are so intense, and I have seen your other cat eyes, too. How you capture them is outstanding! I absolutely love these kinds of things, and you should do many more!
Keep creating!
